Ryan submitted a new blog post:
WANTED: Wheel Stander
Continue reading the Original Blog Post
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.
Wonder if @Kiwi Kev can keep it up that long?
probably not exactly what you are looking for...
What ever happened to the Suicide King?
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.
I can promise that it would carry thenwheels the entire track though lol
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.
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."
Call Don Moyer. and his Willys
Don't ask Jay Leno...
Cripes, that was my very first thought too!
Damn was that a hard video to watch (twice).
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.
Didn't it have Cammer engine back then ?
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.
The thread was de-railed but maybe worth an email?
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.

The HAMB pissed off the Chevado guy about 15 years ago, I was going to try and get him to a local strip.
All it takes is money. Lippy
Like LOUIE DIESEL, I'm sure John has influnce
These guys are always entertaining...
Whoever you get....do NOT let Jay Leno ride along with any of them.
Separate names with a comma.
