We've never seen anyone do so many 360s and 180s while sliding down an ice-slick hill next to a 15-foot drop, but Nick Zalucki did just that. Repeatedly. We were convinced that he'd slide right off the side, but each time his '76 CJ-5 would spin around he somehow maintained control. Then he'd line back up and flog his 0.40-inch-over inline-six up the hill with all the fury that his Offenhauser intake and Edelbrock carb could muster. The T-18 didn't care, nor did the swapped-in Dana 300. The front Dana 30 and the ARB Air Locker in the rear AMC 20 just kept on pulling against the ice.
