SS/AH for everyone not a Mopar nut, or vintage drag racing fanatic, that means 1968 Barracuda or Dart, Super Stock, Automatic trans, Hemi-fied by Hurst

 This car has been drag racing a long time, and killing engines. This seems to be an accounting for the ones it's put into the big recycler in the sky.

Cajun Sports Nationals were known as the "Chootout" chuckle chuckle

 There is about 1/8th of an inch of space between the front of this M/T and the fender... how they haven't marked up, or damaged the fender, I've no idea. These cars frequently get a little air under the front tires, and bounce a little until settling into running fast down the dragstrip... to have kept the tires off the fender with so little space between them has to be a miracle of mechanical marvels.

Flip Flop or Fly was a song title, a lot of musicians covered this song, here's Elwood and Jake: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgzdgLR6tl4

the sound is over a thousand horsepower killing the microphone slowly. Not worth trying to listen to.
