1964 Ford Falcon Dragcar
This was a car built by Barret auto care (Barret, Greg, Danny, Leslie and others). This was the first time the car had been run, and was foiled by a loose distributor cap shortly after launch. It coasted to the finish line from about the 1/8th mile mark. The reason for the sissy burnout is that the car was also missing reverse gear at the time. Unfortunately, they were not able to run the car again, as it was auctioned later that night as part of The discovery channel's "Texas Car Wars" Series.
