 When NHRA finally let the 90-inch wheelbase cars compete with all of the goodies, the number of Anglias and Thames went nuts. Look at the entry list for the 1967 NHRA Winternationals and count the number of Anglias entered in Modified Eliminator, it's staggering. Some of the famous cars than ran at many of the nationals included the BB/GAS Anglia of Bob Panella and manually shifted by Ken Dondero, the BB/GAS Blairs' Speed Shop Anglia driven by Phil Lukens, the BB/GAS Prefect of Steve Woods, Steve Korney's AA/GAS Goldfinger, Johnny Loper's A/GAS "Little Hoss," the A/GAS Anglia of Lutz 'N Lundberg, Stickel and Riffle's B/GASSer, the Kroona/Skarda/Sandberg's AA/GAS, and more

 

HERE ARE A COUPLE OF SHOTS OF KEN DONDERO IN THE BEAUTIFUL PANELLA TRUCKING BB/GS ANGLIA. THIS WAS A GOOD RUNNING PIECE AND HAD A FEW MAJOR EVENTS WINS LIKE THE SUPER ELIMINATOR CATEGORY AT THE 1969 WINTERNATIONALS.
