Beattie, a big Funny Car fan, ultimately decided he wanted one of his own and put Segrini in charge of the project. Beattie brought a second car — the Black Stang, driven by Pee Wee Wallace — into the fold, but Segrini had misgivings about the way that Beattie had the car built.

Segrini drove a few more races for Pisano that year with no real success, a, despite his best efforts, Segrini was not able to put together another ride. Watch list is full. I held the brake and whacked the throttle and went into reverse and had to do the same thing to get it back out of reverse.

As I said in opening this column, lists are a tricky thing. Delivery times may vary, especially during peak periods. The Swindahl-built car had the best of everything, except luck, and after two seasons, they parted company.
