Default Waterloo, il Demo derby

This was my first time riding in a Demo Derby, might be that last, lol. I gotta get a neck brace before I even think about it again. But I will say after the first initial hit it was alot of fun.
Started with a old crown vic with a 20 year old untouched chevy 283. But we did add HEI igniton to it. This has been what I've been working on to get me out of my garage for a while. Had some family move in while they find a house so I my work space has been converted to storage...

after two heats, the ford is dead. Was hoping the rear end would collapse upwards, but it didn't. Wish I had better photos of the sign on the roof, had it laser cut, then I powder coated it candy blue and chrome.

Can't wait until I can drive in a derby. A neck brace would help a ton with not being in pain afterwords and would be the most valuable investment in the car.
