This unrestored '62 SD race car drew lots of attention. Owner Ken Colacino says, "Big Thunder was originally delivered to Hutchinson Pontiac in Rouses Point, New York. I purchased it from Richard Compton of Ovid, New York, back in 2002. Originally an Aqua car, code QQ, it now sports the vintage Fireball Roberts colors. Old timeslips left in the glovebox have the big Pontiac running a best of 12.09 at 135.35 mph at Capitol Raceway when Jim Fikes owned it. Big Thunder still retains the aluminum front end and bumpers, and was also built with 8-Lugs. The original trans with the VIN stamped on top and original rearend are still with the car."
