    I have no idea as to the owner and/or driver.

    Who drove Snow's injected F/C? I always remember him in blown cars, but I think he may have run this car with another driver. ?

    I have no idea who drove the injected car that day. But, I do know it wasn’t Snow.

    I remember a guy named Terry Pringle who I believe drove the A/FC, but it was a long time ago so I may be way off.

    It could have been Pringle. I remember the name. Snow's first funny car was injected, like a 1966 model?? Ran as a dragster back then (as did the other F/C's) & I think Snow won the nationals in Indy one year with it.

    Now that's the worst nightmare for a drag racer to see.

    Just think about the looks you will get from the track clean up crew and the management.

    That's called putting the trans in nuetral, revving the motor to 7 grand, and pushing the "drive" button....

    I remember when that picture was first published. If you look at it, looks like the torque converter came out first, followed by the rest of the parts as the car rolled forward.
