Very cool videos! Did Doug say what happened to Roy's car in the last video? I'm guessing he broke an axle or rear end since the wrecker picked up the back instead of the front. I know in the photos of Roy's car I seen on this site, he had removed the side bars and the Comet emblems on the trunk. In those videos, he still had them on. I also noticed the missing front bumper which I'm guessing was for weight and weight transfer. All of those old funny cars were cool. I was also impressed by the backwards truck pulling a wheelie for the whole 1/4 mile.

He only said that he destroyed the driveline.

I was watching it again & I'd guess the bumper being off is another reason why the wrecker picked him up from the back. it was that old type wrecker with the 2 rubber slings designed to cradle the bumper.
