I can't remember when was my first time at the track, I'm guessing around '75. But I can remember the first Drag car that really did it for me. It was Jim Oddy's Blown Hemi powered, 4 port injected Opal GT. This was the car that turned me on to LITTLE CARS with BIG ENGINES. Check out my "About Me" page and you will see what I mean. Just a little F.Y.I.: Jim Oddy sold the Opal GT in I think the late 70's to someone who wrapped it around a cement "christmas tree" at Beach Bend in Bowling Green, KY. If you look around the H.A.M.B. nation site you can find pictures of the Opal hitting the tree.
