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.

The late, great, Modified eliminator. If you've never witnessed Modified
Production and Gas-class cars in action, you really missed drag racing's
most exciting era!
Sure, drag cars are making more horsepower and torque than
ever, with resulting quicker and faster ET's and MPH, but the sounds of these
high rpm, manual shift race cars--sans any electronic rev limiters--is no
longer around. Ditto for the mean sounding/cool looking dry hops, as the
cars approach the start line (after the burnout) is unfortunately, a thing
of the past.

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.
