Hey,usta do a little street racin near Waterbury,Connecticut!!
Brought the r.p.m.’s up a little too high for the stock flywheel!
Eveything blew,cut the steering column in half,only thing keepin the motor in the car were the front two motor mounts ,the backs were blown away with all the clutch, pressure plate and flywheel!!
My buddie ridin shotgun got knocked out cold from the explosion !!
This is how I meet Paul who now onws the DDS.Com Willys!
He pulled us both out and towed my car home!!
Thats my 55 wagon in the back!
Drive carefully and wear your scattershield,
Is that YOU in the pic ?
Hey,just some wise ass kid !YES!!
that was when i called him DEAD FOOT before the video bob days my brother billy carried him into the emergency room later we went back and beat the pieces of steel out of the road so people wouldent get a blowout its kind of funny now but not back then p. j. bayarinas
I knew a guy in my hometown that did that with a built slant six Valient. Had a factory bell on it, came around the town circle, brought the revs up and dropped the clutch and it lifted the car off the ground! Flywheel went through the floor, cowl, windshield, everywhere! after we moved the car to the side, it looked like pizza slices sticking out of the road; so we had to beat them out with hammers; as you said, so other folks wouldn’t be getting flats. Dumb crap. Years later some dude came to the house with a built Maveric, wanted to run against our Hemi GTX, but couldn’t go to the track because “I don’t want to mess it up putting a scattershield on it”. I took a ride in his car, it was quick; but quick for what it was, which was not a Hemi beater.
