NZV8TV Ep3 - Nostalgia Drags, Central Muscle Cars, Willy White, doorslammers - Part 2
Central Muscle Cars We head back to Taupo Motorsport Park and catch up with three of the leading Central Muscle Car drivers; Paul Urqhart, Shane Wigston and series founder Steve Hildred. Willy White New Zealand's fastest ever drag racer talks to us about the ins and outs of running a nitro funny car. With a best pass of 5.47 @ 264mph, Willy certainly isnt afraid of showing the rest of the nation how things are done. Taylor and Taylor Speaking of drag racing, this years Top Doorslammer Champion Ross Taylor along with son Jason run us through the details of another one of their cars. Although its another 57 Chev, its certainly not as quick as the Taylor And Taylor car we all know and love. Rat Rod While down at the Nostalgia Drags we spied a car that certainly doesnt look like it should be on a drag strip; Neil Surtezs awesome rat rod. This Cadillac flathead powered machine sits its belly on the floor and lifts all four wheels off the ground, making it one serious crowd pleaser. Nostalgia Drags Each year at the Nostalgias a bunch of Aussies are bought over for the locals to go head to head against. We catch up with local drag racer Paul Pins Satler and Aussie John Fleming to watch an epic battle of nostalgia styled front engine dragsters.
