Arnie Beswick's "Mystery Tornado" '64 GTO and longnose '66 GTO racing at Cordova Dragway 6-26-10

This match race took place during the 2010 NostalgiaFest at historic Cordova Dragway, in Cordova, Illinois and was the first of two races by the pair. The '64 car is a clone of the original "Mystery Tornado", while the '66 car is the restored original racer driven by Arnie Beswick during the 1966 and '67 seasons. Both cars ran in the 11 second range.

Boy this rivalry really brings back memories of the Good Ole Days! 4-speeds and driving the car yourself instead of like today everything is done electronically for you. PAUSE IT AT .28 AND SEE "COUPEZILLA" IN THE TOP MIDDLE! SO COOL!

Arnie Beswick's 1969 D/Stock Pontiac GTO Judge V8TV-Video
http://www.v8tvshow.com - We recently came across legendary drag racer Arnie The Farmer Beswicks 1969 D/Stock Pontiac GTO Judge. Back in 1969, Pontiac let out a few hand-tweaked Ram Air IV 400 cubic inch GTOs to a few lucky drag racers. These engines were rumored to far surpass the stock 370 horsepower rating, and the story has it that Pontiac wanted these Ram Air IV Judges to be raced in stock-class races across the country. Beswicks car is truly a stripper model, with no options or sound deadener to keep it light. Even the seam sealer was left off this car to keep the weight to a minimum.
