    Used to race with a guy who had a big block '67 Biscayne wagon he called "Dragin' Wagin'" and it had a picture of a cartoon dragon with goggles on, his tounge hanging out, and his tail "waggin'".

    In the sixties there was a Chev powered Prefect C altered out of Toronto called Percy the Perfect Prefect. The owner built a Fiat later on which he called Percy Also. He was a little weird.

  9. I always liked "The Green Weenie" Corvette!
    Story I remember was that somebody said the 'Vette was an, er, extension of his manhood ( that old cliche'), the car was green so....

    Do you remember The Green Weenie Corvette roadster?
    My memory is so-so! It's hard to believe it was over 40 years ago!
    Many HAAMBer's weren't even born!

    Gary, The guy that owned "The Green Weenie" was Rick Miller, He was a few grades ahead of me at McMinnville High School. In about 1965 he crashed a 57 Vette outside of town. It left him paralyzed. He bought the Stingray and teamed up with the Bachmier Bros. (not sure of the spelling) after their Corvette, "The Sour Grape" burned.

    A couple of fairly well known western Canadian cars, run by the Rutherford brothers, Steve, Dave & Gord

    Buckshy Falcon
    Originally raced by Dave with a SBF/Toploader, car was parked for several seasons after the Pinto was introduced, then came back with youngest brother Gord as driver, this time with 429 PI BBF/C6. Gord still has the car, now running 545 BBF/C6


    Buckshy Pinto
    Chassis/drivetrain by Steve,driven by Dave,car had a number of combos, longest running combo being stroked 351C, originally w/toploader, later w/ Doug Nash torsion tube 5 speed. Sadly, car was badly damaged in a finishline crash in Calgary, after the previous pair of R.E.D.'s down the track oiled the lane. Car was retired (they still have it), and Dave replaced the Pinto with an o/t Fairmont

    A dragster in the 80's called "No Couth"
