1957 Chevy in the Salmon Arm Demolition Derby 2011. Got hammered. Totally the wrong car to enter.

1958 Chevy Salmon Arm Demolition Derby 2009. again, got hammered. The 50's cars are the wrong thing to enter.

Three cars from the supercar era in Australia.

Firstly, the Phase III GTHO Falcon.
At the time the fastest four door production car in the world.
351 Cleveland, top loader, and the obligatory 9 inch diff down the back.
Limited numbers built for racing compliance rules.
Approaching a million bucks for one now.

Inside the cockpit, that is 6,700 rpm and around 144 mph there on the dashboard.

Next the GTR-XU1 Torana.
In line 6 with triple carbs and a whole lot more. These things screamed, seriously fast nimble car.
Same, limited numbers built for racing homologation.

Valiant Charger.
265 in line 6, triple Webbers, quarter mile in the very low 14's.

Thats a lot of carbies in there!

One more...
A9X Torana, these things dominated Australian racing for years.
Some of you 'Mericans might recognise the bodyshape.

Hap, I noticed those two links were from Fox News, does this mean those vehicles would tend to veer to the right?

Here are some more cars I like:

And if you want to tempt me with a Corvette, it would have to be something like this:

It's exactly what I want: a 1967 small-block, four-speed coupe with no side pipes. I even like the color.

The '67 is the best year in my opinion because it did away with all the unnecessary styling details of the preceding models and got straight down to business.

I like my bikes like I like my women: heavy and slow.
