Did we ever get to the bottom of the history of Warbonnet Dex and what happened to it afterwards? Was it the chassis base for Frontline Video. Kind of lost track on this one.

Jerry,
The chassis that we had expired at York, it was the original Frontline one apparently, the old one has now gone to the great drag strip in the sky and has been replaced by a nice new tagged one from Fester Race Cars. We do still have a couple of bits and pieces from the original car though just to keep the spirit alive

Did you ever get a chance to sort out any pics? Would love to be able to see them

Just when we had thought the trail had gone cold on the history, we have just Heard from previous owner driver DAVE CHAPMAN, hopefully there will be some more news on the cars history coming soon

Thanks for that one Jerry, I still have those wheelie bars in the workshop

We met up with previous owner, Dave Chapman and he gave us his old crash helmet and gloves from when he ran the car.

We now have a new facebook page (Team Gridlock Drag Racing) if anyone wants to join
