I know it would be a great buzz, Jerry...

One of my favourite places in all of America.

I think it's a shame he parted with this one:

But there's still plenty there to look at and the cars from the Babbitt collection are all interesting too.

Yesterday, I saw a tuned "Trabbie", one of the last ones ever built - reputedly bored out and hot-rodded up to 60 hp. A real road-going rocket, since these cars weigh next to nothing (they are made entirely of plastic and wishful thinking).

I saw a couple of Trabbies racing at Brands Hatch earlier this year. Whilst not exactly 'quick' (in the context of mixed much-modified-saloons-and-sports-car race) they were not embarrassingly slow either. I didn't have an opportunity to see what modifications they may have had.

 

That looks like quite a party, Jerry; with the biggest barbecue I've ever seen.

I love the Plymouth Superbird...

 

(Thinking of another recent thread, it's interesting to note that the Plymouth is both shorter and narrower - and has a considerably shorter wheelbase - than the current Mercedes F1 car!)

I've always assumed those two were more-or-less "badge engineering" versions of the same car... or am I doing them a disservice?

 

(The Dodge and the Plymouth, I mean - not the Merc F1!  Either way, none of those three would fit in my garage.)  :drunk:

I think you could get a 440 in the Dodge and a 426 in the 'Bird, *think* being the operative, but otherwise just badges.

We did/do a lot of that here, though not as much these days.

Not just a Hemi in that Plymouth...

A really fat Hemi, over 500 cubic inches isn't it, Jerry? I know you have to take notice when the exhaust cutouts are opened and the throttle put to the floor!

I wish that the Domino's car in post #20 was mine-- it actually is Cory Hoonhout's 86 Lola. They look similar with the same livery, but I suggested to Cory that he bring it over to show it off after his great restoration.  He used to work for Doug at Doug Shierson Racing. I saw Jerry E but didn't have a chance to talk other than in passing so I couldn't give him info on the car.
