Rare 1967 Pontiac Catalina 2+2 Drag Race Rat Rod at Rock & Race Dragway 42 Ohio
My then bone stock 4,120 pd 1967 Pontiac Catalina 2+2 gets beat by a open bodied big block powered rat rod in time trial race at the 2009 Rock and Race. Drag-way 42 West Salem Ohio. My best time of the weekend was a 14.24 @ 101mph. with air cleaner removed. This run was 14.94 @96 MPH with a bog off the line. Car now has 455 dual quad engine. Will post more race video with new engine when track opens in the spring 2012 if I still have the car.
Big Burnouts: 1964 Pontiac Catalina Safari - /BIG MUSCLE
If you haven't figured it out by now, we love wagons on this show. To some
they're a misunderstood breed, but to those in the know, they're amazing.
Not only were the wagons of yesteryear known for their styling, but their
capacity to haul as much cargo as a modern day pickup. This 1964 Pontiac
Catalina Safari started off life as a Police Wagon, but was transformed by
its owner into the kick-ass, tire-shredding monster you see here. With a
Nelson Racing Engines 468 cid big-block under the hood, some updated
suspension bits and a killer look, this big green machine is
outside-the-box styling at its best.

Saturday Racing Action Dragway 42 Rock & Race 7-24-2010
Racing at the Dragway 42 Rock & Race event Saturday 24 July 2010. Tip of
the hat to Dragway 42 for a fun event in spite of the weather, great
sub-cultural vibe. Swap meet was much better this year. This is a great
venue for this kind of event, much better then a fairgrounds setting.
Camping, open fires, noise all no problem. Hope we have the heads-up fun
runs return next year, bracket racing isn't 'flag start' nostalgic stuff -
See you next year - CW

1962 Pontiac Catalina 421 Super Duty - Gateway Motorsports Park - Huge Wheelie
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
This is a video of an awesome 9 Second, 1962 Pontiac Catalina. This Super
Stock Pontiac was racing in the Nostalgia Drags at Gateway Motorsports
Park, just outside of St. Louis, MO. It's an original 421 Super Duty car
and man do they have it set up right. This thing hooks hard and leaves
straight every time. Definitely nothing wrong with a mid 9 second quarter
mile at 143 mph. I thought you might get a kick out of that huge wheelie he
pulled on the one run. I hope you found it interesting....thanks for
Gateway Motorsports Park
