    A friend of mine sent this to me, I thought it was very cool, and might shed some light for the new guys on how this sport got started. Larry
     
  2. Cool Vid! Never heard the term squirrel and mill was always for the engine not the car. Still neat vid. Thanks

    "Squirrel" was the term then and replaced with the term "Shit Head" now.
     
  4. This has been posted several times over the years but it's cool to see it again.

    In the South we still refer to idiots as squirrels. HRP

  5. Very Kool. I liked the part where they mixed the alcohol and gas by rocking the car back and forth.:D

    I like that rollbar at about 7:13. He might as well have made it out of cardboard toilet paper rolls. ;)

    Looks like E10 may be traditional!
     
  8. Up north we just call them jerks!:cool:
     
  9. I seem to have recalled that these films we're done in many other states!

    California had one that was very similar to this and were sometimes shown in classrooms as driver education to curve speeding youngsters from reckless driving on public roads!

    I'm inspired! I'm going to the police department tomorrow and ask them to build a drag strip! VERY simple times, indeed.

    I was at the PRI show this week. There were engine building contests with high school kids.... Wearing helmets. No shit, they were wearing helmets to build a small block. This video reminds me how things were - roll bars that were a foot lower than the driver's head, hand tightened lug nuts and no sign of lawyers waiting to sue the organization that sanctioned the race when Squirrels stub their toe.
    Thanks for reminding me that we weren't always a bunch of soft heads. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1387252694.370958.jpg

    WOW, I don't get it? If they need helmets where are their eye protection and mechanics gloves? :confused::confused::confused:
