Corowa Autofest 2010 - 1000hp Torana splits balancer on the dyno

This Torana is a pretty mean bit of gear, with a Vortech YSi hanging off the side of a 434cube small block chev. It was looking promising to spin up some huge numbers on the Dyno when the balancer split. Although there was some concern the crank might have snapped the snout off, it was later confirmed that it was just the balancer that broke.

R.I.P. INOCNT Torana
Simon Kryger's INOCNT Torana has been a solid Pro Street performer at Sydney Dragway and other tracks for many years. Simon sold the car just after this last footage was shot and two weeks later the car was destroyed in a traffic accident when it was stuck from behind at high speed by another vehicle. Unfortunately the iconic Torana was destroyed, but the driver wasn't seriously injurred. Rest in Peace INOCNT.

BEST. POWERSKID. EVER.
I've seen some crazy powerskid action in my time but this Torana takes the cake. With a big hit of Nitrous and a heavy right foot this guy smokes the full length of the track in and aesome display of skill and power. If you've got a better powerskid then send me a video response.





Torana Powerskids at Performance Car Mania 2010
There was a great variety of rides at Winton's Performance Car Mania but there's no denying a strong Torana presence at the event. Just check out how many were smoking it up in the powerskids! Perry Bullivant, with the dark green Torana and black bonnet, won the Powerskids after a stout effort on sunday.





Corowa Autofest - Six Cylinder drag final
High tech versus old school in the final of the six cylinder class at Corowa. We talk briefly to both owners before they head to the startline. With the EL XR6 Falcon boasting almost double the horsepower of the Torana, it should have been no contest but the result was closer than anyone could imagine.
