ummmm....'57.

 

I wonder where that bizarroworld thing ran. It couldn't possibly be gasser-class (or anything else) legal for any sanctioning body I know of.

 

AHA !!! A wheelstanding exhibition car, according to the HAMB...http://www.jalopyjou...ad.php?t=627360

 

QUOTE "This is a Winnipeg car or at the very least a car built and raced at Bison dragway back in the 60's. The picture below hung in the old Softy's Speed Shop for years. Brian Sr who ran the shop said it showed up and ran occassionally for a few years then disappeared. Other than a few rumors, he has no idea what happened to it. He did say a lot of tracks were way to spooked and wouldn't let it run. Even back in the crazy 60's... that's saying something. But then again... looking at the rear spring mounts, maybe not. It also showed up at the first car show at the Winnipeg arena. The stories have it, that the car was driven in and driven out. The pictures show it to have a beautiful blue paint job and really cool lettering. (Paul S... do you still have the car show pics???). Brian Sr remembers to have been well finshed and well crafted. Just insane...

This thing had an injected 327 set back about 6 feet and a 4 speed. The car was center steer and the driver's head actually leaned against the slope of the roof line at the back. There was no firewall per say (Which might have contributed to the "Not safe" designation) this was to let the driver see where he was going through the frame rails. This freak had a 200 lb steel plate mounted at the rear. It double as floor boards for the trunk and shot sparks when scraped on the track. This was years before the wheel standers put titanium plates on the bars."

I've seen a gutted Camaro pretty similar to that one at a junkyard around here.

This is probably the only vehicle in this topic which you can find in the form of a 1/24 scale kit:

I saved this clipping over 40 years ago and fixed it up best I could. Now who makes 1/25 scale horses?
