So while Chad was rolling around the the center part of the US last weekend at the rainy Goodguys Show and then at Kyle’s Ice Cream Cruise, I was in good ol’ Epping, NH, rocking the microphone at New England Dragway. When Saturday racing was finished, “post race activities” ensued which included a couple adult beverages and a patrol of the pits to see who was thrashing, who was partying, and who could potentially be victimized in a turned over porta-potty.
Before we were able to execute any porta-potty hi-jinx, we stumbled upon the pit spot of a racer in full on thrash mode, swapping the popped small block Chevy out of his early Chevy II for a more mild mouse. While that’s kind of neat, but not all that interesting on its face, things got way cooler when we recognized that this car was powered by propane and it had a set of totally weirdo carbs on the top of a tunnel ram. Between the huge regulators, threaded pipe and elbow fittings, along with the fact that it was on a fringe equipped rug, we dug it. We’ve seen propane carbs on forklifts and stuff before but never a pair and NEVER a pair of them on a damned tunnel ram.
This experience leads us back to the question of the day because it was the coolest weirdo thing we’ve seen in some time.
What’s the coolest weirdo automotive thing you’ve seen recently?
