I bought a new digital camera (Nikon Coolpix S550). This thing is 10 MP, smaller than a pack of smokes, and has fairly good video to boot! So I took it to New England Dragways Jetcars Under The Stars on Saturday night. Here's some of the pictures. Some of them were taken using the continous 1 fps setting. It took a bit to get used.... so here's the best of the pics I took.

For the jetcars, I took video of them running! I'm still working my way thru getting that ready for the internet. I've never dealt with digital video before, so I'll post those up as I figure out how to edit them.

I wish the damn phone pole wasn't in the way in this one!



These were taken in the continous setting: The quality is OK, but I should have zoomed in more.













This one's better. This car runs Pro Comp, but it's basically a fuel altered like they ran in the '60 (altough it's new). It uses a Fial Topolino body. I love this shit!

Jet cars are great! They're there to put on a show and they do just that. That ambulance supposedly uses almost 100 gal. of fuel during a run.
