I did try to get in touch with the owner of the Black Ghost - I wanted to challenge him to a best two out of three go during the Dream Cruise with the GTO, maybe as a subset of the M1 Concours drag activities.

I figured it would be a cool outing for a couple kids with their dad's old cars. We could bill it as "the Black Ghost vs the Black Goat" (lol). I don't know what the MOPAR runs but I my car has gone 12.20's in full race trim (Ram air, no exhaust and 9" slicks), so I think I've got some room to play in street trim.

Never heard back.

I also thought maybe it could plant the seed for other Woodward legends to meet up and re-create some runs, including the Black Bird vs Silver Bullet, etc.

You were cruising Woodward with the wrong car! I believe I saw you in your '63 Grand Prix. Should have swung into Pasteiner's. Harold Sullivan had a whole theatrical show with a classic Michigan State Police car escorting him driving Jimmy Addison's GTX followed by the kid driving his dad's black Challenger the "Black Ghost" with a Dodge pickup and a drummer in playing in the bed. You could have broken in with your dad's '65 GTO. I was stuck and blocked in at Pasteiner's lot with my '68 GTO. Couldn't get out. David happened to bring the Black Bird by just after the parade went by us.
Would have been interesting if we could have timed it to have your '65 GTO and me borrow the Blackbird and break in and join their MOPAR parade. LOL
Heck I'd put my '68 GTO up against the Black Ghost! Now that would be a good race! LOL
