    I don't think I've posted this info before, a search did not find anything. If I did I will remove this one.

    When I was researching D/Darts for my website I talked with Wayne Schultz of the Porach Dodge D/Dart fame. He sent me the info on his wife's Dart that won the H/SA class at the 1965 Indy Nationals and was disqualified and then re-instated after tech protest review.
    Here is what he sent me on the ManHunter Dart driven by Karen Schultz:

        That is time capsule stuff! Not to mention a very pretty drag racer. How long ago was this that you guys talked? Are they both still with us?

          What a pleasant and inspirational thing to read. Historical stuff related to just regular folks, not high dollar same old same old.

            I've always been a fan of Sportsman racing.Good 'ol gals and guys.
            Pro Class I just can't relate too. Too much $$$$ and teams in the same class.

                I have never seen the Manhunt Dart before today. Thank you for posting this interesting story for us to read.
                Could you imagine this same process today, multiple letters, and communications over a lower stock class car? Wow how times have changed.

                I would frame/mount these to preserve them for all to read.

                      Thanks for the read. And thank you for keeping the D/Dart website going for as long as you did. We really appreciate it.

                      Did you get the colored picture of the Suburban Dodge Boys D/Dart that I sent you?

                        I’m glad you posted that up. It’s a shame that they were disqualified on stupid stuff that was actually OK to use.
                        I think the worst is the victory was ultimately correctly given to them was a huge disappointment and had a hollow feeling even though they were justly vindicated.
                        They should have been center stage getting there trophy and cheers.

                        I’d be super mad and wanting to look a lawyer for the ass clowns that ripped me off and out of all that should have been.

                        In 1966, Wayne campaigned a D/Dart in the Cleveland area. It was sponsored by Porach Dodge. Here's a picture of it taken as they were preping it for the 66 season. It still has all the stickers on the windows. The car was raced mainly at Dragway 42 in Ohio. --- From Wayne Schultz Collection via Alan Lewis' (aka D/Dart man) website.

                          Thanks for sharing that. More information is surfacing about the early A race cars. The 65 was a 2 barrel to boot!

                              Back in 1965 when this national event took place, Karen Schultz ran a 15.49 in the H/SA class. Not having all the info on this class, I'd guess they ran 15.10 to 15.50 and around 90 mph.

                                Here is a Eastern Drag News (Aug 6, 1965) Dragway 42 blurb I found for this car.
                                I can't find results for this car but the H/SA class ran between 14.8 and 15.2 from other car results.

                                  Back in the late 60's or early 70's, John Clapp ran a red 64 Dart in H stock down in my area. I wish I still had pictures of it & had contact with John.
