  • Any demo derby guys out there?

    Hi all, new guy here and I was just wonderin if there were any derbyers on this site. If so, what do you like to run and where you from?

    I ran derbies for about 17 years and quit about 10 years ago. I ran all over the state of WI for a few years and then just ran local ones for the rest. Typically I ran 74-76 Chevy Impalas, 2 doors, 4 doors and wagons with a few oddballs thrown in there.

    Things have changed some since I quit racing. Most of the debies I have watched lately have a couple different classes of cars and those older ones would be in a class by themselves. The newer large cars would run together and then there may be a compact car division also. The compacts are usually 100" wheelbase max and 4 cylinder engines only from what I've seen, lots of Escorts and Cavilers, etc.

    I had alot of fun over the years and wrecked alot of cars.

      I put a '91 Mercury Topaz in a 4 cylinder class. What a blast! I had as much fun prepping the car as I had driving it. Four cylinder classes are very popular here,(Ontario). We even have some minivan classes. I hurt for week after that demo.

                    I bet some of the square body Volvo's would be good derby cars.

                      I think the Volvo's have too long of a wheelbase for compact class. Most full size classes require American made cars.

                      I prefer 68-74 Cadillacs myself.

                          depends on the promoter. Some are 100" and smaller some are 102-104". Some dont know how to read a tape measure so you could get almost anything in
