Sneaky Pete Robinson
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
Kinda looks like hes holding the brake in this shot.
Man look at the size of that fuel line.
Ah, the fog and smog at the Beach
I will have to ask him about that the next time that I talk to him.
Did this car use all 3 speeds?
We talked and dreamed for years about a torque convertor hi-gear car.
