  1. Great info on this car Dean, you are the man! I could not for the life of me, figure out what kind of injection set up that is. It is very interesting .

    Going to give this a shot because I have a bunch ready but HAMB is wonkie today trying to upload photos.

    Campaigned by the team of Charlie Hill and Bob Parmer, the legendary “Bad Habit” Fiat Topolino out of Wrightsville, PA was one such machine.

    Hill had formerly been known in the gasser classes for his record-setting “Filthy Forty” unblown Willys gasser (driven by Pork Zartman), part of the S&S Speed Shop team.

    Everything was constructed from the best materials available, with the body being a replica of a 1937 Fiat Topolino created by Fiberglass Trends. The engine was a 426-inch supercharged Chrysler Hemi with Keith Black equipment backed by a two-speed Crowerglide (later replaced by a Lenco transmission) and narrowed 5.12-geared Chrysler differential.

    Good to know, hard to tell and just used the caption.

    If you know the car is that a belt driven supercharger or chain can't quite make it out.
