Drag Racing Meeting Christchurch NZ Feb 2013
This is the video footage I took at the local Drag racing run by Pegasus
Bay Drag Racing Club here in Christchurch New Zealand. 8.0 run by the
Nissan Laurel and a 7.7 by the Chevy powered Honda were 2 of the highlights
while a collision which caused a roll over was bad luck but the driver of
the rolled car was only a bit sore. A good range of vehicles from a Lexus
to a Dodge Pickup to a wild V8 Anglia Van
Drag Crash - Stooge V8 Torana
Chris Theo was very lucky to escape unscathed from this unfortunate
accident at Heathcote Park. The very well built V8 powered Holden LX
hatchback Torana didn't fare so well.
Your Automatic Choice (Ford Zephyr & Zodiac) - 1961
It's tempting to think of automatic transmission as a modern invention, but
it isn't. This film, made by renowned film-maker Bill Mason, was
commissioned by Ford 50 years ago to promote the auto option they were
offering on the Zephyr and Zodiac range of cars. It gives a simple
explanation of how the auto-box works, and then gives a tutorial on how to
use it, finishing by asking "Who on earth wanted a third pedal anyway?"
Guinea pig vs Taz
2009 Classic Ford show at santa pod... Guinea pig racings no.1 up against
