Tyrone Malone

Does anyone remember Tyrone Malone the "Bandag Bandit" When I was a kid in Prince George British Columbia they opened a new dragstrip. Tyrone was called to break it in. This is a picture of the truck I saw smoke the tires down the strip and then lock up the rear wheels and spin around. What a sight! that is showmanship for me

bandag bullet

That Kenworth with the two 8v-92 Detroits looks cool. 1472 cid should smoke some tires. Looks like the bandag bandit lives!

The other truck is a V-8 Mack and makes almost as much power from it's 4 cycle 18 liter as the Bullet makes from it's 2 cycle Detroits that total 24 liters! Those would be seriously cool to see running together, I can just imagine the smoke.
