Comet wagon beats Chevy

Just wanted to share a video from last year up here at Portland International Raceway. Ran a 11.53, 393w, no roll bar, full stock bench seat interior.

Re: Comet wagon beats Chevy

Cool!
Your wagon reminds me of Dyno Don's.

I've been looking for a Comet wagon myself.
Would you post a few pictures or yours?

Here a good starter project. It's a 6 cyl. Been on the board for some time and I bet it could be had for 1G.

Re: Comet wagon beats Chevy

I believe the show on tv/cable you are talking about was one that featured Hajek motorsports who has the original Don Nicholson Ugly Ducklig Comet Wagon. I loosely based my car from that one.
Hajek - '64 Ford Comet Wagon
