The pilot reported he was preparing to land on runway 36 (2,200 feet by 150 feet, dry grass) when another airplane on the ground had its engine quit. This airplane was stopped on the east edge of the airstrip, approximately 1,200 feet from the approach end of the runway. The pilot reported that he "attempted a go around but did not give it full throttle." He reported the airplane stalled and the left wing dropped. The pilot reported that he added full power, however, the airplane impacted the terrain off the west wide of the airstrip.
