I originally purchased this car in Ohio .

My son (Tyler) and I raced the car for about 4 years.

After making many improvements to the car we managed  to turn it into an mid 11 second car that was very consistent and reliable.

 

Although it was Street Legal... it would set a lot of car alarms off. The engine was a 451 Stroker Dodge Motor that produced an estimated 500+ HP. It included Ported/Polished 906 Heads, an M-1 Intake, 850 Double Pump Holley, 11:1 Compression, 2" tube headers, MSD Ignition & Billet Distributor.

 

The car also had an Aluminum Radiator, Fuel Cell mounted in the trunk, Electric Fuel Pump, Dana 60 with 4:10 gears & Racing Axles, 727 trans with a Griner Trans Brake, B&M Shifter, Stock Chassis with Super Stock Springs, Roll Bars with Racing Seats & Simpson Belts.  The car was Race Ready at a Hefty 3750 lbs. with the driver

Our best ET  was 11.53  at 115+MPH.

 

In 2003 we decided that we wanted to go faster, in order to do that would require major alterations  to the car. Since it was pretty much stock relative to the body and suspension, we decided to sell the car and purchase another car that was already modified for faster racing.

 

I sold the car in 2003 to Dave Schultz in Houston, TX. Afterwards, my son and I both regretted selling it. However, since then, the folks at Texas Thunder have turned the the car into a very nice 9 second NSS car which Dave races frequently. You can see pictures & videos of the car in it's current configuration at the bottom of this page and in other areas of this website.
