John Dearmore Fire Fund
We’re still looking for more help! As we’ve been reporting, on October 10, John Dearmore, long-time Top Fuel car owner, Nostalgia T/F crew chief, and president of DRE Racing suffered a devastating fire that completely destroyed his machine shop. John is a premier manufacturer of valve train components for the Chrysler-based hemi engines, Fords, and small and big block Chevrolets; his products are found on everything from Top Fuel to Pro Mod and Pro Stock to cackle cars.
The fire not only destroyed all of his files, fixtures, inspection equipment, micrometers, a 50-year collection of tools and parts, specialized tooling and machinery – CNC machines, lathes, etc. – but also the structure itself. A complete total loss! This operation was John and his wife’s sole source of income and, since unfortunately there was no insurance in place at the time, it is an absolute tragedy for the couple.
This is why we here at Nostalgia Drag World are calling for the drag racing community’s help. John is also an extremely capable chassis builder, as evidenced by his re-creation of the S.P.E.-chassied car he raced in the early 1970s. He (along with his stepson, Allen) was also about to expand the business to include a full-fledged chassis shop at his Alba, Texas shop. If you or anyone you might know has any machinery or tools, such as a lathe, milling machine, tube bender, T.I.G. welder, etc. that they would donate or sell at a good price or could help in any other possible way, so that John can get back up and running and carry out planned and contracted for chassis – both new and restorations – please contact him at (903) 474-3568 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
