Monster Meets His Maker

On Friday we hit the road with John Pavlovich and Chris Piaggi for a very special mission. In the late 50's Bill Grant built one of the country's first drag cars. Powered by a V12 Allison aircraft engine, the car was aptly named Monster. The Scroungers had brought Monster up from Wellington for the Blowout and Chris and John wanted to reunite man and machine - maybe for the last time. Bill is 85 and suffered a stroke a short time ago. We headed for Tauranga with Monster in tow and knew what we were doing was pretty damn important. We will have the full story in the next issue - until then here's a few shots. We also saw a horse in a drive through, but more on that later!
