Terry Thurman's aluminum '64 Plymouth Savoy wrecks at Norwalk.
It was powered by a 528 HEMI though an A727 with a Ford 9" rear.

Here's some photos before and after the wreck...

A real shame that another Hemi "bites the dust". Word has it on another 'site, that Terry is recovering OK, but the crash was nothing to do with Terry or his car: The show was running late at the track and the track staff were pushing the cars through quickly - the second pair of cars burning out before the first pair had staged. The car before Terry smoked badly at to top end of the track on its run, and left fluids down there. No one from the track inspected the surface after that cars run.

Then it was Terry's turn to run ......
