I feel it's about time that maybe a sticky or dedicated post be set up to show the history of ford sixes in competition. So if anyone has pics from the old days or even now,or know where some are please share them. Thanks Rich.

I think that car is Lou Olenyck's, not Bruce Sizemores. Lou ran an OTR trailer manufacturing company in the Detroit area, hence the name "Hauler".

FTF, I was just going by what was posted on another site. Dragracingimagery.com has a couple of shots of the Hauler in action. Thanks for the correction.

Hey 82F100 thanks for posting that article! I did not realize that Lou's car was Bruce's Pinto; that they were one in the same. I do think there are a few "historical inaccuracies" in the article though. The article implies Bob put the hybrid head on the Pinto. I know Bruce had the hybrid Boss head on the Pinto before he sold it to Lou. I also think the car was stolen while Bruce still owned it. There is a long sordid story about how the car was stolen from Englishtown and the truck hauler ended up being recovered in a Manhatten alley but I'm not the one to tell it. Also, Bob Huettman was the man who was the mover and shaker as far as getting AJ to build the billet head for the digger as well as waging a one man campaign to get Ford to issue it a part number and getting it accepted by the NHRA for use in competition. By the way Andrews sold the car to the Nahans who visit this board and are still running the AJ-headed six in their now front-engined dragster.

I don't mean to demean Bob Andrew's accomplishments in the least. Bob and I are friends - he painted my '33 Willys Coupe Corvette yellow and every time I see him (not often enough) he tells me his garage floor is still full of Corvette Yellow overspray.

Thanks again for posting the article. I moved to Michigan in 1970 and Andrews along with Huettman, Ambrose, Argenta, and Sizemore became my idols before they were my co-workers at Ford. And Chuck Noonan still does my block machining too.

We also need to get photos of John Peto and his two-time-IHRA-Modified-World-Champion wife Ann's pictures of their cars: the Orange Crate Falcon, the White Elephant '23T, and their Bantam altered, now with a Mopar headed Ford 300.

" The article implies Bob put the hybrid head on the Pinto. I know Bruce had the hybrid Boss head on the Pinto before he sold it to Lou."

I agree Bruce had the Boss head on it when he sold it, but another inaccuracy , when he sold it it would have had the 6 piece furnaced brazed head rather than the 3 piece.

I am still searching for photos if anyone has any. JP Kecks Pinto and Loyd Decells altered . Thanks in advance Keith

The article also said "Bob was the first person to run a billet aluminum head on a six." I believe that is incorrect. David Majors built abillet crossflow hemi-headed Ford 300 in the 60s and won the NHRA World Championship with it in an E/A.

Does anybody have a photo of Major's car? Magazine articles were written about it.
