    I don't know either of these guys but, they were doing their thing at the Eagle Field Drags a couple of weeks ago. Maybe some of the Eagle Field faithful can help with contact info. 006.JPG 007.JPG

    I know Kevin has the "Nasty Habit" in the classifieds right now, but he was the first guy I thought of when Ryan said a wheelstander that is "appropriately styled".

    Although, the Nasty Habit is really more of a street legal race car and not an exhibition car I would love to see KiwiKev lift the front end coming off the line in person.

    The SEG guys are off that weekend. I'd be willing to bet at least a couple of the bunch would be willing to make the trip, if none already live close by. I know my fellow club brother, Dog_Patch, has only a few miles on the front tires compared to the slicks of his '39 Dodge he runs with these guys in their A/Gas class.
     
  9. Here, this article might be helpful to any of you guys willing to step up to the plate as a fill-in to accommodate the Boss' request:

    A wonderful line from the article:

    "Academia has made far too little effort to explain the dynamics of the wheelie."

    Oh yeah....

    Carl has hired this guy in the past. I would talk to Carl and see what he thinks before I talked to the guy. Carl should have some contact information. He travels and lives on the road through the summer.

    I have edited my original post. I had the wrong information entered. Old people should not try to paste information in a post. This is the guy that I have seen at MOKAN Richard Hutchins Chevy Rebellion

    I found him on this list

    Wow. General Lee. He did a show at Balboa (Eugene) in 1968 or 9 and I was roped in to help start by skirting alcohol in the injector. Quite a rush for a young guy.

    Marty, you know I can't remember, it was 48 years ago. My general recollections was a touring racer rode hard & put away wet. Whenever someone posts a wheelstander I would wonder why I never remember seeing much on the General and here he is 80 years old & looking better than ever.

    I can't help but mention the Green Mamba jet car as an alternative.

    There is a '65 Econoline pickup wheel stander on the Springfield, MO Craigslist right now. Somebody could step up and buy it. Convince the wife it's a daily driver.
