Driving a Powerglide on the Street
This is the first drive of the Eaton-blown 363/Powerglide combination.
Literally the second time I started the engine - so I took it easy (sorry,
no burnouts or high-speed hijinks). This combination should go easy 9's.
I can't believe how driveable it is...

2010 HOT RODS & RACE CARS Car Show & Cacklefest: Pacers Fuel Altered
50 years ago, CHARLIE DODGE and GEORGE SNIZEK, Conceived, Constructed, and
Raced, what became known as one of the Fastest and Most Beautiful Fuel
Altereds in drag racing....
Wherever they went, the Snizek & Dodge Racing Team's roadster, aka the
"TASMANIAN DEVIL", running out of their "PACERS AUTOMOTIVE" shop on Long
Island, set speed records and took home best appearing awards. It quickly
became a crowd favorite as well as a feared competitor and event winner at
drag strips nationwide.
45 years later, a group of former Top Fuel drivers from Long Island got
together and recreated that Icon of Speed which is seen above.
In just SIX months time, ROY MILLER, BILLY LYNCH, BERNIE SHACKER, DENNIS
QUITONI, Pacers' original driver/co-owner, GEORGE SNIZEK, and George's son,
SCOTT, have built a stunning, authentic nitro-fueled recreation of The
Pacers original altered roadster which returns us all back to the drag
strip in the middle of the 1960's.
Billy Lynch fired up the car at the 3rd Annual Hot Rods and Race Cars Show
at East Neck Auto to the delight of many of its friends. In fact, he even
had its original driver, George Snizek, in the seat and Charlie's family on
hand which made it extra special.
It didn't matter if you weren't at the show because you probably heard it
if you were anywhere in town. We even set the alarms off at the HSBC bank
next door from the sound coming from The Devil.
The annual Long Island HOT RODS & RACE CARS Car Show and Cacklefest at East
Neck Auto is always brings unique fun to the show. Being able to let the
crowd experience-or-relive history is what its all about. It makes it extra
special and entertaining for all.
