I remember the first I met Harold Kunkel. It was at the launch ramp down at Cumberland and I had my Starflite. He looked it over and commented on how nice it looked, then he smiled and said "It needs a big V8 hanging off the back..".

And he said it all out of the corner of his mouth. You have to know Harold to understand.

I've seen a famous video of Harold out running a 24' Skater w/twin 2.4s in his V-8 powered 23' Concord vee bottom.

Raced him 3 times and beat him twice.

I think the clocks all stopped that day 😎
