    Smokey the Bear was my father's BB Funny Car in the late 70's early 80's.
    My father "Beaver" Wasson may be able to answer quite a few of your questions about the cars that were around during that time

    Just a correction to something Bob Kraemer brought up in regards to Johnny Loper and his AA/FCs

    They always had Johnny Loper and "Little Hoss" on the sides of his cars and the only two people that drove his AA/FCs were Eddie Pauling and Tripp Shumake (rip)

    Johnny also campaigned a Top Fueler briefly in the early 80s with Phoenix resident Mark Niver ( Billet Bullet A/FD ) behind the butterfly.

    Johnny never campaigned any TAFCs or TADs

    RIP Johnny and Tripp
