    You may be right, it was a long time ago, but the car I saw tumbling looked like this:

    and not full bodies like the Honda of Wilmington car...but if Pete Eastwood does have the Mangler, then clearly I remembered it wrong!

    I'm looking to identify this Altered Class Coupe.

    Body Make and Year?

    Anyone know who built it?

    How about what state it may have been from?

    I have emailed Dino and I have a lot of old DDS slides. Not the best quality but still good history.
    I plan to scan them and provide them to him. It is just a slooow process.
    I lived in Norwalk, CT and then moved to Germantown, Ohio in 1973.
    I always like the Bocanfuso picture, one of a kind.

    Pat,
    I always liked seeing your MG run, was the name Baby Torque?
    I have more pictures which I will get to hopefully soon.

    Yes it was and still is. We ran it at the New England Hot Rod Reunion this year. And we run the Dover Drag Strip Nostalgia Drags every year. I'd appreciate copying the pictures for my collection.

    Correction: "Pete has the Honda of Wilmington car. The mangler is in a garage in the Chicago area were it remains because the guy never paid Eddie Flourney for it." - wavemaker

    Think you're right on the top photo, Jim Nicoll in the Der Weinerschnitzel car, can't make out the second name, could be Shubeck, or does it say "Starlight"?

    Could be, Larry, this is as close as I can come. Chuck Griffith drove Starlite IV, here at Pomona in '68. No wing on nose, but could have been added...still not sure, though:

    Thanks! Searched Don Ewald's site, no mention of either driver or car, so wonder if this is the only picture of it? Anyone know more?
