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.

Win Bingham's NHRA Super Stock Station Wagon is MEAN! Under the hood is a
327 sbc with a 4-speed transmission. This was taken at the Division 3
Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series.
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.

I usually spend my free time exploring castles, but that's not my only
interest. I also like cars, especially from the 60's & 70's, especially
with a V8 and extra especially when they are in good, original condition.
This video was taken in Kurume City, Kyushu island, Japan. I first came
upon this place in the new year, and it had been on my mind that I should
make the trip back to shoot a video. Suffice to say I did.
So, what do you reckon folks?
Oh, the castle-exploring site if you re interested:
