    I have made mention of this before, but Pat Mahnken, one of the co-owners of the Psycho Mustang , lived down the street from me. I recall when the car was clothed in a Fiat shell. Blown 427 Ford wedge on fuel served as the means of propulsion. Direct drive allowed for smokey jack Chrisman Comet like launches
     
  2. Dude, you're repeating shots that have already been posted, by other people, and, ahem, you didn't even change the file name of when I scanned and posted this shot. Got anything that hasn't shown up here already?

    Actually Bill Pound brought the S/M Psycho to Australia not New Zealand. By then it had a blown 392 under the hood but you are correct that it finally crashed in Oz.

    The money garnared from the sale of Psycho 1 allowed for Snodgrass and Mahnken to fund for their second effort, Psycho II, which was Gas Ronda's 66 Mustang

    Who, or what, is in the drivers seat? And, is that JJ standing behind the wreck in the yellow shirt? Sure looks like him, but with shorter hair and minuse the sideburns. Butch/56sedandelivery.

    Since we are on the subject of JJ's 392 powered Nova, how did teen age driver Marc Susman come into play? Wasnt he tutored by JJ? I recall him surfacing breifly in 1970, only to disappear as quickly.

    This was Rusty Dellings car. He drove for Marv Eldridge and his Fiberglass Trends and then the Mister T Corvette, after he sustained a career ending crash at Lions

    The Corvair looks like the old Seaton's Shaker. I would love to have and restore that car.
