WOW. Some guys talk about running alcohol and a blower on the street, and some guys actually DO it. No music needed: the exhaust and tires are music aplenty!! BTW, that is one HUGE closed road course you were driving on!! ;)

Great vid! Thanks for posting.
Wholly f<<k that thing is fast. Looks like a hoot to drive.
Awesome machine! Just curious, why the Chevy motor?

Thanks alot guy for the nice comments and glad you all enjoyed. :cheers

As far as the Chevy motor goes.... I actually have all the matching #'s drivetrain for this car; drove it home 20+ years ago for $1750 factory 4 speed bench seat car. I was in the midst of a frame off resto when I got a helluva deal on the supercharger and carbs. I just could'nt see putting that on my original motor and as long as I had to buy another engine anyway, i decided Chevy was the way to go to make sick power for cheap.

I originally screwed the whole motor combo together with roller cam, trap door pan,ported square port heads from scoop to pan and running for a little less than $4500. And that's the combo that made 750 hp to the wheels:eek:.

Thats why I went Chevy. :rolleyes:




And I can always go back :D.

The Chevy parts are so much more available I've heard that reasoning before. I saw a wicked T/A at a show a couple of years ago with a motor much like yours with a Chevy 454 in it. I ask the owner why not the Pontiac 455, he said it would have cost twice as much to build the Pontiac. The legendary 427 was always one of my favorites anyway, beautiful machine, great job!

Yeah, don't let my wife read that :eek:, that's her BOSSS! She had fun, her dad is a local stock car legend that actually owned and built his own track and she has driven some too.

Great videa (and car) John....send your cousin to do my video!!:party:
Just paypal me the ticket $$ Eric ;).

Actually the GoPro's are really user friendly, he had two hooked up and the picture and sound quality for such a small camera are amazing. We took some footage at the firing range and it recorded the sound of a report from a .50 cal Barrett no problem. I though for sure it would have blown the thing up. If you took footage he would probably have no problem editing it for you.

Um, like the rest, I have NO IDEA why you would want to spoil the "sounds of nature" with background music.

Awesome music of a motor like that is all a real gear/motor head need....:cool
