The legend of Sean Misfud's "Wild Willy"
SYLVANIA WATERS, NSW – Cast away into a corner with the used bits and pieces of long ago power…
The baddest '41 Willys to grace the southern hemisphere and one of the BADDEST '41 Willys in the whole wide world now sits in a corner of a factory up on his pro jacks with bits and pieces being scavenged for this and that or to be loaned to a fellow racer to help them try to be what he once was.
The record for the quickest roots doorslammer in Australia was held for years by this intimidating race car, but now he sits forlornly wondering what is in store for him next. His win at the last 16 car field of Top Doorslammers is now but a memory.
Is his fate to be covered up with a car cover and forgotten by one and all? Who knows what the future holds for this great piece of Australian drag racing lore???
His master had found a new mountain to conquer, a Camaro just like all the rest of the Camaros! A car to make the spectators yawn and think, "not another Camaro"! And with a PSI screw blower, of all things on top of its Jan-Cen engine's Hemi. That magic five second ride beckoned his master like a lady in the night. "Come find me. Search me out. I can be yours," were her cries. And so in search of her he went. And find her he did.
That 5.89 time slip was like the elixir of life and his master was rejuvenated and ready to be hard at it all over again! And now the Camaro shall be the one to be passed back on to another driver full time. And in its place will be a new, different ride for Sean Mifsud! The next car of his dreams, a Plymouth Duster right out the Jan-Cen stable of winning race cars, is to be his next challenge!
But rest assured all is not lost! Like a Phoenix, Wild Willy shall rise once again from the ashes and the dust of the Rollup Racing factory to again wow the crowds Australia wide. Bar the doors, lock up the women, hide your children! Be prepared one and all, for he shall return!
