Albert Melchior, of Canada, was a member of the group that drove cross-country with Brian Finch. His 555ci big-block sounded like hell unleashed, and when the Anvil Auto-sponsored Camaro left the starting line, it laid down rubber all the way to Turn 1. Sadly, on one the first timed laps, the big-block grenaded, scattering bits of high-end machinery all over the asphalt. Albert isn't sure what went wrong, but the long sweeping turns of Spring Mountain are notoriously hard on oiling systems.
