Fuel Altereds - Gone But Not Forgotten

Pictures and movies that I took of some Fuel Altereds back in the '60s. The most evil handling cars known to man, the fuel altereds were banned by NHRA over 30 years ago. I was fortunate to get to see and photograph these beasts in action. If you are interested in the history of these legendary vehicles, check out these websites. They have hundreds of pictures (much better than mine) and stories of these brave men and their machines. http://www.mysterion.net/AAFA/ http://www.draglist.com/lists/fuelaltereds.htm For the soundtrack I'm jammin on Bad Company's Gone Gone Gone. I hope you like it! Thanks for watching!

Winged Express AA/FA
The very famous Winged Express Fuel Altered piloted by Mike Boyd. Footage from many years, Includes that heart wrenching moment in 2005 when we watched the front wheel come off and the Wing hit the wall. Mike was okay, it was sad to see the Wing so badly damaged. One of the most iconic cars in drag racing history. The Wing was restored and is again doing what it does best!

Freight Train fires up at 2008 CHRR
Legendary twin engined gas dragster the Freight Train fires up in the pits. While it doesn't have the cackle of the nitro cars, the "whomp" of 16 cylinders of small block chevy and the cloud of blackie carbon is pretty awesome...not to mention the engineering feat of linking and synching two V8s is a neat deal. One of the few gas dragsters that made top fuelers nervous when running for Top Eliminator.





Alaskan AA Fuel Altered crash
The Alaskan Grizzly Racing Team from Fairbanks run the Alaskan Grizzly AA/FA against their second AA/FA car named "Spare Parts" with Jamie & Marty Bodenstadt driving against each other at Alaska Raceway Park on July 1, 2012. Spare Parts car breaks loose hitting the wall and takes Marty on a wild ride. Go Pros were mounted on both cars for different views. This vid will show why you need safety gear and chassis to specs to protect the drivers. Marty came out of this unscathed.

Jungle Jim and Jungle Pam - Drag Racing Legends
Years before John Force arrived on the scene, drag racing's original flamboyant showman was "Jungle Jim" Liberman; a larger-than-life individual whose flaming burnouts, glib personality, and boundless energy helped endear him to fans in a manner that eluded other drivers with better winning records. Liberman was much more than a touring professional; with his wild wheelstands, 100-mph backups from burnouts, stubborn refusal to lift on even the most out-of-shape runs, and his curvaceous companion, "Jungle Pam" Hardy, Liberman provided all the entertainment of a traveling circus. Liberman's life, like the lives of many fast-living icons of youth such as James Dean, Jim Morrison, and Janis Joplin, was as short as it was fast-paced. He died at the age of 32 after suffering fatal injuries in a head-on collision with a bus on Sept. 9, 1977. His premature passing left a void in the sport that wasn't replaced until Force's explosive personality emerged in the late 1980s. Today, the legend of "Jungle Jim" lives on with "Jungle Pam," his constant companion in his heyday who titillated race fans with her skimpy outfits and provocative on-track actions. "At every race track that I go to," said Hardy, "everyone comes up and asks for my autograph. They ask what he was like and if he was as crazy as they've heard. The fans really miss him, and they miss the fun part of drag racing. The sport has become so professional now that there's no room for any of that anymore." "I was just 18 when I met him. I was still attending high school in West Chester, Pa., and had never been further away from home than the next town over. I was walking down the street one day, and here comes this yellow Corvette speeding down the street. This guy walks out, comes up to me, and says, "Hi, I'm Jim." I had never been to a drag race before, but the next thing I knew, we we're heading for his match race in Xenia, Ohio. He showed me how to back him up after the burnouts, and from then on, my life was just a whirlwind tour all over the country." Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers song "American Girl" was released in 1977, the same year Jungle Jim passed away. Well she was an American girl Raised on promises She couldn't help thinkin that there Was a little more to life Somewhere else After all it was a great big world With lots of places to run to Yeah, and if she had to die Tryin' she had one little promise She was gonna keep Oh yeah, all right Take it easy baby Make it last all night She was an American girl It was kind of cold that night She stood alone on her balcony She could hear the cars roll by Out on 441 Like waves crashin' in the beach And for one desperate moment there He crept back in her memory God it's so painful Something that's so close And still so far out of reach Oh yeah, all right Take it easy baby Make it last all night She was an American girl This video was created from clips from the Diamond P video "Fabulous Floppers" and photos that I took of some of Jungle Jim's cars at 131 Dragway back in the '60s. The photos of Jungle Jim and Pam at 1:48, 1:53 and 1:59 are courtesy of Tom McCrea tmccrea. Photo at 2:36 is by Steve Scott. Other pictures are from unknown photographers.
