"The Phoenix" Nitro Funny Car Warmup at Kumeu
A fantastic sound made by Les Herst's nitro funny car "The Phoenix" performing at the 2013 Kumeu Hotrod Show. It was started on alcohol before changing to nitro. Listen for the engine note change while it is running on nitromethane. Look at the bloke wearing the chromed German helmet sucking in the nitro fumes. He is a regular at the Kumeu swap-meet, I have seen him many times. Feel free to hit the 'like' button. Thanks! If you want to follow me on YouTube, subscribe to my channel for my latest videos!
