Hi Mick.
Nice to hear from you and thank you for the information.
It was a poplar and very quick car and has been discussed on this forum many time in the past.

Do you have any idea what happened to it in the end?

Hi Jon,
I would like to know what became of it too!
I think it had reached its potential in that the eights were just a little too far despite any further development.
I shall have another listen to my audio tapes, well CDs. I don't know if I can download a few minutes to your site. I'll give it a go.

Mick has been very kindly sorting through the audio files made by Frank Wareham (the voice of Geronimo) and it's about time I posted some.
These recordings not only offer a an unique insight in running the dragster back then when everything was a learning process but they also give up a listen to what was going on back then.
This is the first part of the car running at Santa Pod in 1969.

great recording, that injected Olds sure has a nice tickover on 48% :D the comment about Mike 'Jesus' Collins was funny...

btw it's not Woodvale, the recording was from the last meeting of '69 at the Pod...

Thanks Nick.
I didn't think it was Woodvale but I thought Mick would know so I went with that.
Not a problem, it's a long time ago :-)

Great recordings and something different.

great find John. I guess they were being optimistic hoping to get it out for the '65 Dragfest

Mick Tickner has very kindly sent me another one of Frank Warham's (The voice of Geronimo) audio recordings.
This time he recollects in detail the teams visit to Anderstorp, Sweden in 1969.
