Got an e-mail from John and he says his beast flies with Vics Tranny a ton of tranny work. Valkyrie guys look him over also.

Adrian,
Would you know if John is the brother of Craig Reilly back here in Pennsylvania?

We had a good time at the drags and the car ran fair. Out of 26 cars we Qualified 7th and ran good but had to run the top car first round. Our best time was a 6.06 at 248 MPH so we were getting better. The car was there at the lights but we lost by a car length to a very fast car.
Cozaey and I had a good time in Az so when you get time come on over and try the trike out if you want.

This is a AA/Top fuel Nostalgia Dragster and should be running around 5.85 at 158 mph
Here is a shot of the car doing a burn out. I have some new ones and it looks mean as ever. The owner and I were in the Navy together, we were partners in Speed Shops and have raced top fuel cars forever.
Picture on the right is your's truly (guy with all the hair) ha ha.

Adrian & Fasteddie,
It really is a small world, Curt is the other brother in Colt's Neck NJ, and I guess John is the only one I don't know. In any case I'm sure John is a great guy like his brothers back east......Ray

John is a good guy and does well in construction. He had his share of problems with the Tranny so he got the VR2 and had trouble with it, but I guess it is all OK, at least I hope so.

That is very cool
I would really like to see more pictures. Is there a website for the car? If you don't want to post here you can send me the links or pics to my e-mail [email protected]

Are you familiar with a young gun Sean Bellemeur? I think he's driving a B Fuel nostalgia dragster this year. His dad Gregg and I go back more than 30 years when Gregg was driving an altered and later a Div 7 alcohol dragster.

They started with an nostalgia alcohol car and are in the process of building an alcohol */C to run in NHRA Div 7.
