Accident At The ’14 Grand National Roadster Show

This doesn’t look fun at all.

“Folks, please, always make sure that your throttle is free and doesn’t stick. Not that we wanted this to be the first post for the 2014 Grand National Roadster Show, but one of the contenders was approaching the viewing area to be judged when his throttle stuck, running over GNRS judging chairman Vic Cunnyngham, resulting in serious, though not life-threatening injuries. And the roadster is in bad shape. ALWAYS make sure that your linkage is free of hangups and interruptions or this can happen to you.
Update 5:48 PM: Vic has had X-rays and has no broken bones, and is breathing fine, according to GNRS promoter John Buck. He was airlifted out of the Fairplex as a precaution. It goes without saying we wish Vic well.

Roadkill Episode 11

Finaly another episode of the best car show on Youtube.

“On this episode of Roadkill, David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD magazine fly out of town, buy a car from a junkyard, make it run and drive, do burnouts, add nitrous, drag race twice, almost die, and the auction off the car at the end. The scene begins at CTC Auto Ranch in Denton, Texas, where the guys score a ’67 Plymouth Barracuda with a 360 V8, but without a carburetor, interior, glass, or brakes. By the time they sort out a number of other mechanical woes, they’re off for some burnouts and some racing at North Star Dragway, right next to the Auto Ranch. Then it’s a 300-mile drive to Houston for the NMCA Lone Star Nationals race. But, as you’ve come to expect from these guys, that doesn’t exactly go smoothly. But then they add NOS nitrous and it makes everything ok as they hang out with Jeff Lutz and Tim Reed from HOT ROD Drag Week right before they have to sell the car and hit the plane home.
