This is a shot from around 1967 of the old Pipins and Green T pickup fuel altered. The car itself was Butch Pipins', and the motor was Don Green's. This thing really thundered, and showed some of the power that Green was to later show more with the Rat Trap cars. Not quite the style points with this one, however.
This run appears to be starting as a bit more than Pipins wants, as the butterflies are already closing with the front wheels in the air, heading to the left a bit and smoking the rear tires. Who says that the fuel altereds used to be a handful to drive?
