Mad Frenchman 6cyl Maverick 10.5
Some video views of the Mad Frenchmens Maverick pulling some Mid Tens in the quarter-mile with the six-cylinder in his Maverick at Island Dragway 😯
Unfortunately when I saw this car race I had no idea what was it’s significance of this drivers history. It was mostly a Homebuilt six-cylinder maverick done by the driver and owner. Saw car many times at island and Raceway Park racing but never stoped long enough to talk to owner more in-depth on the car. Unfortunately while looking for more information I learned the owner Clem passed on around 2012 🙁
Was a rather interesting watching pulling wheelies off the line with just the six-cylinder power and the Maverick was trapping 125mph doing it 😯 Especially considering he designed and built most of the motor himself. I like when somebody puts us much work and thought into design of their own and it works out 🙂
I did see the car for sale in Raceway Park Englishtown New Jersey but, again I didn’t put any thought into it as I had no idea of its history. Now I have to keep my eyes open and ears open for anything that seems interesting @ Englishtown. Matter fact maybe it was the Pinks show at Englishtown that I saw this car? Matter of fact you may frown but, I actually like the Pinks show and it was awesome that it brought cars from all over for that event 😛 Maybe they’ll figure it out and come out with another event like this that will bring cars and everything to the dragstrip for everybody to see 🙂 No matter how much everybody hated Rich Christiansen he still brought some decent shows and bottle action out to Englishtown. We need more events like this to make things fun again at the Drag Strips.
