    Snake out on his own in 1966 in the B & M Torkmaster car. The car was owned by B & M and Dave Zeuschel built the engines.This is the first paint job, by late summer it was candy red with silver accents. And contrary to popular legend he did run it all season with the Torkmaster drive line which was developed by the Spar brothers and Don Alderson.

    I believe as the story goes they had 3 brake calipers on each side trying to hold it on the line, cause it did not have much hi-stall in it and he had to leave early

    Then after getting back into a clutch car he red lighted till he got his leaving game back in order

    Did this car use all 3 speeds?
    We talked and dreamed for years about a torque convertor hi-gear car.
