Marcellus & Borsch "Winged Express" AA/Fuel Altered - AA/Fuel Altereds are the wildest machines to ever race the 1320. You have the power of a Top Fueler or Funny Car stuffed into a short wheelbase roadster. With a combo like that, things are bound to get squirrely.

The AA/Fuel Altered of Al Marcellus and Willy Borsch is arguably the most popular AA/FA ever. Willy Borsch’s driving style earned him the nickname of “One Armed Willy” and "Wild Willy." Not that he didn’t have two arms, but rather than he would drive the little red beast with only one hand on the steering wheel! According to partner, Al Marcellus, Willy wasn’t show boating, but rather the car was such a rough ride, Willy was using his left hand to hold on to the t-bucket!

Willy would often get the “Winged Express” almost completely sideways while doing a burnout. At that point, the ONLY thing a driver can do is drive the car out. Willy was notorious for driving the sideways Altered about 80% out of one of these launches, then lifting off the gas, and letting the car snap from side-to-side - sending photographers scrambling for cover. That’s how Willy got one of his other nick names, “Wild Willy” Borsch. Willy also had an affection for doing FIRE BURNOUTS, earning himself yet another nick name - “Flaming Willy.” - KST


Dave Hogue's "NANOOK" AA/Fuel Altered - In 1968 drag racers Dave Hough and Ed Moore ran the NANOOK AA/Fuel Altered with a big-block Olds, later switching to a blown hemi engine. The switch to the Hemi made the NANOOK one of the fastest cars in its class. According to Ed Moore, the name “NANOOK” came from the Eskimo-like look his girlfriend’s fur coat. By the early ‘70s the NANOOK was running low 7s at over 200 mph. - KST


Mooneyham & Shark A/Fuel Coupe - Gene Mooneyham took his '34 Ford street rod and turned it into an all-out racing machine. Under the body, everything is as stark as can be. The car was originally powered by a flathead Ford, but that didn't last long. Gene dropped in a supercharged, fuel injected Chrysler Hemi that ran of 60 to 70 percent nitro! That was a pretty stiff load back in the '60s. As A Junior Eliminator class car, the car ran low 9's and was always a crowd favorite at the Southern California tracks. This car is considered by many to be the "grandfather" of the AA/Fuel Altered. - KST


Heffernan & Kaiser's Open GT Altered - In the ‘80 many Opel GT race cars were easily able to run Gas or Altered classes depending on how the cars were setup. Either way, it was a wild ride. During the late '80 the Heffernan & Kaiser team raced this Opel GT in the Altered class. - KST
