Many photos throughout this WebSite were taken at the Ford test track area in Dearborn, Michigan by the late Joe Farkas.  Joe was the primary Ford Motor Company Photographer for all special activity regarding the company including performance cars and events.  At the track, we had our own 1/4 mile strip equipped with Chrondek timers and staging lights.  Very convenient since our office was located on the third floor of the Ford Division Headquarters building across the street.  At the time, it was mostly unknown where I worked.

Dick Brannan’s racing career has to be one of the most interesting in Ford history. From his early years in the 1950s as a teenager in South Bend, Indiana where he started with a 1932 Ford Street Rod he built while in High School, to the third floor of the Ford Division Headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan where he was selected to help organize and then head up the elite Ford Drag Team starting in the 1960s.
