HAPPY AS LARRY

> LETTER OF THE MONTH

Sam Lappas, email

I WOULD like to congratulate Dave Cook (writer/photographer) and Andrew Goodwin (photographer) for their great and inspiring story on Mark Negri’s re-creation of drag racer Larry Ormsby’s famous XW GTHO Falcon, as well as his Ford transporter and caravan (SM, Feb ’16). More importantly, congratulations to Mark for his painstaking attempt to recreate history and bring a smile to all who were involved in drag racing in the 1960s and 70s – and to the young readers like myself who were not.

Well done!
