^^ These are great! Pay attention to how many turns the steering wheel makes trying to
get the car backed into the burnout area! There are so many things going on in that car to
make it go correctly. LOVE IT! ( thanks for the good edit work, Smoker! )

BP did a great job capturing a moment and putting this photo together.

Having the 442 in the background completes the visual.

Can almost see light under those skinny front tires!

Definitely a cool shot! That motor is really trying. :)

Happy New Year, everyone. Hope it's a better.....and at TRP, faster......year for all.

Paul and I hadn't reached our first birthday yet......and your mom would have been expecting you in six months in September of 1972. :mrgreen:

On a different note, we may need to find Paul's/Grandpa's Cadillac. Wait until the end of this for some interesting news:

I had to watch that three times before I realized it was two separate runs!
I'm nearly doing the exact same thing in both videos.
Super Cool!

I have the guys info that currently owns the car. I'm past the big Cadillac phase though. And I'm betting that motor on NOS won't make any more power than I was making already. Our Caddy was begging for turbos though...
