I may be partial to Steve and Nancy Scott's '60 Chevy as I too owned one of these heavyweight cars shortly after high school many years ago but there's something about the style of the big behemoths cars of the 50's and 60's that to this day still are crowd favorites, be it at car shows or the drag strips. Steve who has owned the car for 20 years purchased it all stock right down to the bench seat along with the 170hp 283c.i and powerglide trans. His plan was for a street car as he drove it for a few weeks and then installed a crate 502ci, turbo 400 trans and Dana 60 rear in it. Two weeks later Steve took it to Byron Dragway and has been hooked ever since! Today the wheelstanding Impala boasts a Jimmy Lopez JLO built naturally aspirated 632ci with the trans by Dave from Proformance and recently Steve set a personal best time of 8.39. Steve is a long time member of the Midwest Super Stock Mafia 8 sec Doorslammers Group who along with Cordova International Raceway, local radio station WLLR 103.7 held a contest for a ride along in Steve's aptly named Impalasaurus at the Super Chevy Saturday event. The winner would be determined by calling into the radio station and making their interpretation of what an Impalasaurus would sound like! After many callers Don Drach of Le Claire Iowa was declared the contest winner and the lucky guy to ride along in a 1/4 mile pass in Impalasaurus! One look at Don's smile and excitement after exiting the car tells it all! Special thanks to Dennis Holas founder and Don of the Midwest Super Stock Mafia for supplying the ride along footage!

1960 Bel-Air Monster Wheelie!
Rick Johnson's 1960 Bel-Air Monster Wheelie at The Real Street Drags. Wisconsin International Raceway in Kaukauna Wisconsin 8-21-15. There was two pieces parts that fell off his car while doing this video and you could see it looked like a rear sway bar or torsion bar broke off and was dragging while he was still flooring it down the quarter mile. Cool stuff like this is what keeps me excited about going to the drag strip each and every time! #Race #Racing #Competition #Drag Racing #Wheelie #Bel-air #Impala
