I just returned from Florida last night. While there I visited his drag racing musium in Ocalla with a friend that has a long history in drag racing and knows many of the characters of the 50s-70s. I really liked Tommy Ivo's side by side twin Buicks in his dragster. I remember seeing it when I was kid in Hot Rod magizens.

He certainly was as all the drag racers back then. They all worked on their own cars, constantly improveing them, towed them to the various strips around the country, and drove them as well.
