At the end of Friday's program teh nostalgia cars had their test runs.
First, Bob Glassup with his "Xtreme" Fiat Fuel Altered.
And man, I can't remember having seen such a "drift-burnout" on the Quartermile since 1989....
Drag Racing 2010 - Pits impressions Saturday morning - NitrOlympX Hockenheim
Arriving at the track Saturday morning. On the way to our places we took a
little walk through the pits.
First Patricia Kästner was warming up her Competition Car Corvette
Roadster, then one of their neighbors - a Fuel Funny Car was warming up.
ANd off to the Pro Mods and finally I got trapped in a nice cloud of Nitro.
Right in front of me was Micke Kagered's Fueler coughing, behind me the
other Funny Car! Great!!
And finally Urs Erbacher's marketing display of his V2-custom bikes. One of
them 30.000 CHF for the modification only!
Hope you like this video.

Old School cars at their best! AA/FA Top Fuel Altereds, front engine
Top-fuel, a real cacklefest. Bradford's, Rat Trap, Nasty Benjamin and
Nanook. Watch the insane Nanook vs jet car race, just a little squirrely.
Lots of other cars too. TA rails, Pro-mods, Super-Gas, Super-Pro, drag
bikes, some nice ET cars and one particularly fearsome 7-second blown 1962
Chevy Nova... oh yeah... and a jet car (5.94 sec 268.97 MPH pass).

World Fuel Altered Nationals 2009
The fuel altered nationals at Eddyville Raceway was another badass race
with some killer short wheel base fuel altereds tearing up the 1/8 mile. A
few 90+ % nitro running race cars shootin' flames like crazy!
First test-fire of the Nitro-burning PACERS "Tasmanian Devil" AA / Fuel Altered
50 years ago, CHARLIE DODGE and GEORGE SNIZEK, Conceived, Constructed, and
Raced, what became known as one of the Fastest and Most Beautiful Fuel
Altereds in drag racing.
Wherever they went, The "TASMANIAN DEVIL" roadster running out of their
"PACERS AUTOMOTIVE" shop on Long Island, set speed records and took home
best appearing awards. It quickly became a crowd favorite as well as a
feared competitor and event winner at drag strips nationwide.
45 years later, a group of former Top Fuel drivers from Long Island got
together and recreated this Icon of Speed.
In just SIX months time, ROY MILLER, BILLY LYNCH, BERNIE SHACKER, DENNIS
QUITONI, Pacers' Original driver, GEORGE SNIZEK, and George's son, SCOTT,
have built a stunning, authentic recreation of The Pacers original altered
which returns us all back to the drag strip in the middle of the 1960's.
The video marks the first test-fire of its Nitro-burning engine outside
Billy Lynch's Atlantic Auto in Huntington Station on Long Island and the
beginning of a whole new chapter in the cars' history.
