Pat Hennebery's C/SM NETO Camaro Lebanon Valley 10/08 R1
Pat Hennebery makes a run shifting his old 4 speed C/Super Modified Camaro at Lebanon Valley NETO (North East Timing Organization) meet in October 2008. The car is just like Hennebery ran it in the 1970's but has a mild 327 engine. In the old days the car ran 10.60's @125+ with a destroked 327 @ 318 cu in. Now with a mild 327 the car runs 11.80's @ 111. Plans for a better engine in 2009 are in the works.
Pat Hennebery shakedown Dick Mauceri C/SM Chevy II 04/08
Pat Hennebery drove Dick Mauceri's 67 Chevy II for its first shakedown runs in April 2008 at Island Dragway in New Jersey. Dick bought the car in November 2007. It was built by Jim Thore from Fancy Gap Virginia. Jim put everything he had over several years, into building this car as an NHRA Super Stock C Modified Stock (SS/CS). He was finally finished in late 2006, but never got to run the car. Unfortunately, Jim died in early 2007, without ever seeing his car get to the track.
In 2007, Pat Hennebery introduced me to NETO after we had spent a hectic month getting his old Camaro together for Dover Reunion day. We then got it race ready and Pat raced it once at Lebanon Valley in Sept 2007. One part of that car's long and varied history was in the late 1970's as a C/SM NHRA modified eliminator car. Pat and I were partners in that venture. In 1979, I located a 1967 Chevy II, built by SRD for Dave Aloisio, set up for super modified or modified production. Aloisio had sold it to some kid in Westchester, who obviously was overwhelmed by the purchase. Dick bought it from him, Pat & Dick parked the Camaro, and built the Chevy II. We campaigned it all over the east coast through 1981 (I think) in C/SM and only stopped when NHRA did away with Modified eliminator. The car eventually ended up in Canada, where it went through life as a bracket racer, and then an NHRA Super Stock. Where that car is now, I do not know.
Dick bought this Chevy II because it seemed so cool to run both Pat Henneberys Camaro and a 67 Chevy II in NETO, sort of what we did 30 years ago.

IHRA MODIFIED ELIMINATOR, BRAINERD OPTIMIST DRAG STRIP, MID 80'S
This video was shot at an IHRA points race held at Brainerd Optimist Drag Strip in North Georgia, just South of Chattanooga, Tennessee. I think it was 1986 or 87. A building was blocking the view down track but there's some good starting line footage with some excellent sound. This should get your heart pumping.
