"Vespa 400 drag racer video!!!"
 
   Q: What do you get when you stuff a big block Chevy into a Vespa 400?

A: the altered-wheelbase drag racer known as "No Big Thing".

Here it is, caught racing at the US 30 dragstrip:

   Thanks for the photo. I remember looking forward to seeing your car during the US 30 dragraces. I was telling a friend about it and wanted to show him some pictures of it, impressive as it was remembered.
