Watch this guy beat the absolute piss out of a Dodge Durango, in less than 60 seconds:

NHRA Pro-Mod driver Sidnei Frigo was airlifted to a hospital after this crash Friday night in Baytown, TX.

Found some more great pics here but not much info:

Appear to be Scorpion snowmobiles from about 1970. Assuming someone here will recognize them from the front. Note the Canadian plates.

Cool, thanks gtown. :thumb:

OK, it's definitely a GM.
They used that windshield from 1955 through 1960.
The body shape precludes anything before 1959.
Although it's heavily reworked, I don't think Caddy or Buick.
Probably use something heavier than a Chevy.
Hmm, either '59 Pontiac(Parisienne) or '60 Oldsmobile.
I guess '60 Oldsmobile, but I wouldn't put money on it.

wow. And then he drives off down the street like nothing just happened.

It was probably somebody else's car.

I figured, with the sticker in the side rear window, and the hatch window missing, that it might have been been a bought-for-nothing-junker.

Did pretty well, for a junker, though.

Soon-to-be-ex-wife's car, maybe.

Yes.

Gravdigr 05-02-2016 04:41 PM

I'm partial to those (78 & newer) m'self.

The '59 handled like a boat. The '71 was also ponderous. But the '83, '85 and '86 are like ballet slippers. The '06 is heavy but rock stable.

Steve McQueen's Speedster. I hope that's not his tow car, because that would detract from my opinion of him. While the white ragtop is pick of the litter, '58 Fords are butt ugly.

Caddy made a car with a bed? Or is that a custom job?

glatt 05-04-2016 09:13 AM

OK, I see there was a car called the Cadillac Mirage. But I can only find it in 1975 and 1976.

Custom.
