Bobby Jackson and Odie Robertson both drove the #3 late model at Lakeside and E-Wood. What brand of cereal did the cars name sake (Boss Moss) come from?

Tak's Automotive Machine Shop had a drag car (I believe it was originally a Anglia) that was named.......?


Lets see, Linus Deiling had a Charlie Brown caroon holding a steering wheel.

Clarence Krieger was known as "Tiger" and was referred to by the annoncer as "The Mayor of Garden City." That's because he actually was or still is the mayor of Garden City, Colorado, a smalltown outside Greeley.

Tak Shirimizu had C/A drag car that was nickamed "Tak's Toy". The driver sat in the back seat and engine was where the front seat was supposed to be. Tak's son Gary was the driver and the car held several national records. This car would lift the front wheels with each shift, it was really fun to watch. Incidentally, the car was actually a German Ford Taunus. It was the German answer to the English Ford Anglia. The Taunus resembled a mini '40 Ford tudor.

What cartoon reptile did Ed Brunner have on the hood of his figure 8 car? It didn't have a dysfunction.

Not sure about the name but Beans Alexander (hope that's it) had a can on the side labeled Beans with a cartoon cloud "Pooft" or something.

Anyone recall? Probably several things off in this memory.
