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.
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.
For the soundtrack I'm jammin on Bad Company's Gone Gone Gone. I hope you
like it! Thanks for watching!
home-made 425 Oldsmobile powered death trap
Don't laugh to hard at this. My buddy's dad build himself a rail job
(death trap) race car, powered by a Oldsmobile 425 big block. Once again I
don't have all the info but it does have an Edelbrock intake and a Holley
carb. The Exhaust is running out open
manifolds. Also has airbag suspension in the back and some fat Mickey T's.
Check out the HUGE steering wheel, it's bigger than the actual wheels.
Gets crazy going down the road. Thankfully he never actually took it to
the track. It became doner parts for other projects. Have fun!!!!
8000 horses clearing their throat!!

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
