Terry's Pinto on Nitrous!

This pic was taken two years ago this month. Terry had entered a wheelie contest at the season finale race. He decided to try a 75hp Nitrous shot right off the starting line and this was the result. Engine at this time was a 306.

The back end of the car smacked the track and unloaded the rear tires, causing an over-rev so Terry backed off. The car came crashing down from this great height and bent in two at the firewall, smashing the headers flat, pushing the engine cross member up and the air cleaner cracked the hood. He had to spend the next few months putting a new tube chassis front end on the car to replace the bent up stock front subframe. I guess that's what the off-season is for, eh?

And by the way, he did not win the contest!

Was the judge the guy in the powder blue liesure suit watching his life flash by in front of his eyes?? Theres an exhibition type guy that I saw last year in Cordova, IL who's got a little school bus looking dragster... the guy can wheelie the full quarter mile. He's got some sort of titanium skid pads on the ends of the wheelie bars instead of wheels that put out a humongous shower of sparks... pretty funny to watch.

I'm starting to get hysterics over that guy in the suit!... that pic could be on one of those caption contests! Mine would be " In an effort to develop the next generation disco ball, Herb had to re-evaluate after a near death experience"
