4-ΑΩ TIN GOD! WHEELS UP BURNOUT! CRAZY PASS! 100% ORIG! 120" SLINGSHOT DRAGSTER!

The 120" wheelbase dragster with a Hilborn Injected 301ci with original rear gear, along with the original '67 El Camino push car that was also stored until this year, made an appearance at the Hunnert Car Heads Up Inaugural Event at Byron Dragway 9-12-15. First and only pass, straight off the trailer, results in a chassis flexing, wheels off the ground burnout and an insane wheel hopping pass, harkening back to the 60's with a firstname.lastname@example.org!
