    The Humming Bird


    Wrecked???

    EDIT: Did a search and YUP it wrecked

    As it turned out Jim's secret passion was to own and drive a wheelstander which made perfect sense for a guy who tried to put out a five-alarm fire with a hankie. And so Jim created the “Hummingbird” wheelstanding pickup. It was a creation only a mechanical engineer could love. It was the perfect drag racing creation except for one thing -- it couldn't wheelstand. They finally decided to strap several tool boxes to the tailgate as counterweight, which worked like a charm. Only issue was that they didn't secure the drawers so when it did a wheelie it left about 200 hand tools in its wake.

    After a lot of experimenting Jim and the crew finally figured out the counterweight deal and prepared to navigate its first full quarter-mile wheelie. At the starting line the truck went into a wheelstand. At about 400 feet the “Hummingbird” was still in wheelstand mode and the crowd was going crazy. At about 800 feet Jimmy had already eclipsed his longest wheelstand ever and the crowd was near hysteria. Then it happened.

    Due to a crewman who forgot to tighten most of the lug nuts, the left front tire came off and Jimmy had no idea. But the 4,000 people knew and they prepared for an epic crash. When the “Hummingbird” finally came to roost it did so by barrel rolling about six times. Jimmy got his Exhibition License and the legend continued.

    There were some in Regular stock style Super Stock with the larger slicks and manifold and carbs changes and it least one or two wild Funny Car types. There is or was a thread here on the HAMB about one of the funny cars but it was some time ago and MAY have gotten the boot because it was one year too new.

    Google Reynolds Buick I know they had stock class ones and I THINK at least one Super Stock one.

    look in the current 2020 autorama thread here and on Bangshift and you will see one of the funny cars in the background in some of the photos. It is Red or Maroon
