Dick Kalivoda and John Hamlin's 1925 Ford Model T Modified Roadster at the 6th Detroit NHRA Nationals in 1960. As Dick ran short of money during the build, his club mates in the Di-Gammas of Seattle hit the club treasury and gave him the money he needed for the fuel injectors. The trade-off was that Dick and his partner John Hamlin had to put the club name on the side of the car. The club voted the color as well, and the old roadster was painted in a 1957 Pontiac Lime Fire Green. Later on Dick paid the club back, and the car was repainted blue. Not long after the build was completed, in 1960, Dick won $500 and a Bulova watch with an award from the King County Youth Auto Council for the most outstanding performance, setting a new national record at the opening meet. That was a lot of money back then, and with the award money he was able to take the car to the Detroit NHRA Nationals in 1960. In Detroit they were beaten in the final round. Dick was hooked, and he wanted to go faster. Photo courtesy of Marty McDonough.
