Kenny Pierson and his Pontiac Ventura II at the track
Took the old girl to the track to play around. . Pay no attention to the popping and cracking of the motor at about 4000 rpms. The motor let go. Won an award at the carshow there and had to be pulled around by my buddy in a golf cart. One of the screws on the rotor cap came out and locked up the distributer. Tore the teeth off my composite distributer gear. Quick fix-all better now. Car launched great and that would have been a 10 sec. run
