That was my favorite wild bunch car. One race Chris broke a blower belt and might of done abit of damage. But he still had time to talk to us. A real good bugger.

Not taken at Masterton Motorplex, but owned and raced by our Head Honcho, Bob Wilton, for some years. It had an untimely demise, and despite rumours swirling of its reincarnation, we think Georgie has firmly plugged that gap. The frame can still be seen near the staging lanes, and the engine is on a stand in Bobs shed - and is still fired up on special occasionsโ€ฆ.

The Hogan & Berry Capri Funny Car on display at a Zone 10 hot rod show, Edgar Centre, Dunedin. Karl Boniface from Invercargill [Nitro Flashback Funny Car] is doing a brilliant restoration of the historic race car. The first Kiwi-built drag car over 200mph. I still have the newspaper clipping, 203.16mph.

Words and pic thanks to Graeme Oliver.

takes me back to mere mere when L A Hooker & Phoenix funny cars from the states turned up, can still hear them

Outstanding ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž Brings back great memories at Thunderpark.

Remembering the days when a funny car body actually looked like the car it was meant to be..

I remember seeing it run Quick as!!!

Got photos of it and Garth at rangiora muscle car madness couple year's back.
