Ken/Jon Hardesty's KOS 71 Demon
      #5708501 - Sun Jan 03 2010 12:15 PM

I was looking through some old magazines and found an article on this car(Mopar Action 2/97). But, the color photo page is missing. Does anyone have any pics of this car? It's Lime Green with no stripes and says Bevis Built Race Cars in the back window. And does anyone know where the car is today?

Thanks for any help!

The car was sold to Mike Robbins, and ran with a B1 motor. When Mike had it he installed black side stripes, and a blacked out cowl hood. Car ran very low 8's, just shy of making a 7 second pass. Mike sold the Demon, and then ran a Silver Viper. Not sure who owns the Demon today.

Thanks Jeff I thought it might be the same car, but the article I have says the Hardesty's bought the car from Robbins, then had Bevis Built do the work on it. Must be they sold it back to Robbins?

And thanks for the pics Ari I'd still like to see some of it before the stripes if anyone has one?!

They probably traded back and forth. I know Robbins also owned the RoadRunner that the Hardesty's used to have, before he ran the Demon. Both were Bevis built cars.

Last time I spoke to Lee Saunders about 2 1/2 years ago he bought both the Demon and the Viper from Mike Robbins. His family used to live in SW Virginia but now I think they live in Florida.

Man I wrote a long reply and the site would not post it up and the prose was evaporated. I now own the Demon. If this posts up I will try to recreate the rest.

Well that worked so here we go again...

First Hi Moparts! My name is Chris Barber and I bought the Demon from Mike Robbins. The title said he has owned it since last summer and I think he bought it from Lee Saunders in FL.

The car still looks just like the pic with the lovely lady. I looked the car over pretty well on a lift and saw no evidence of any fire damage. The paint looks pretty fresh so who knows. Rear quarters could use patch panels (for the bondo) which if AMD has them I will try to get done, otherwise the body is in great shape.

Edit: I cannot view photobucket pics here at work. Can anybody post up that fire pic on another photo site and reply here?

The engine is a 499 Keith Black / B1 that with 2 stages of spray that supposedly made 1250 HP on the Nelson Performance (FL) dyno. The engine was supposedly freshened up with a new Bryant crank, new alum rods, new pistons by Adger Smith in Texarkana. I do not have the engine build sheets or dyno data, yet... but will try to get those.

I live in North Alabama and the home track will be Huntsville Dragway (1/8 mi) which is 5 back road miles from my shop. I will get tags and maybe drive it on the street some too.

I have a brand new 540 world / Indy 440-1 engine I may put in so this old guy doesn't have to do so much maintenance. Headers will be the issue.

Anybody that has any info on what the car has been doing since the KOS days in 2001 please let me know.

This is one nice toy from back in the day. The car I should have had in HS (well, really a 4 sp 340 Demon).

I was sitting in the stands, and could hear the nitrous start flowing full blast, then I saw him reach to try and restart it! I yelled and stood up just as it exploded. My brain took two distinct pictures which will never be erased, the radiator jumping forward, and the fact that the carb and intake were absolutely destroyed.

Man I wish someone would post up the pics of the explosion or a link. I can't see some photobucket sites, some they show. Who was driving the car at the time?

No evidence of any such destruction that I can tell and no mention from Mike about the little incident. I'll have to look harder but I gave the car a pretty good looking over before I laid down the bengis. I can say that at this time the carb abd intake are very much alive and well. The engine runs great! The engine compartment is very very clean so maybe someone re-did it. Well, maybe one hacked in hole near the pass side fwd upper A arm pivot that is still there and Mike didn't claim to know a thing about it. When did this incident happen?

Besides, I wonder how the NOS was flowing unless the microswitch on the carb (activates at full throttle) was stuck on.

As for going all the way up to Indy I doubt it, at least this year. This is about 2.5X the car I have driven (416 street 68 fish - 7.20/98.x) before and I plan to crawl, walk before I run on both nawz systems. Kinda intimidated about the juice. I might even put my nice mild 14-1 540 in after a few passes with the 499.

Is that the same Josh that works the phone at Indy? If so... Do they allow 12 ga shotguns in the gate?

Airwoofer,
You have to remember this occurred like 15 years ago. The nitrous system was on a timer activated by the trans-brake button. He staged and had already pushed the button, but the bottom bulb was flickering. So he released the trans-brake to get another bite at the bottom bulb, as he moved forward the car died, then as he reached to re-start it, the timer went off and started spraying nitrous, or he must've went full throttle to fire it, not sure. If someone has a hi-res copy of the pic, perhaps they can e-mail it to you.

Thanks for the info guys. That pic looks terrible but I can assure you the car is in great shape now as far as I can tell and I am somewhat A body knowledgable (havein a 68 fish I am restoring and a ratty 71 Demon drag car I was trying to get race ready). The car could use patch panels on the rear quarters to smooth them out. Trunk extensions are still OK.

Anybody know the exact date and who was driving the car? Was it Mike? Funny he never mentioned it but no big deal. The history on this car is out there and I would like to know it. This car will be raced and some times driven to the track as there is a pretty good street car presence around here in HSV (mostly damn rustangs but some boosted chebbies) and this car will be in the mix. I plan to remind them why Mopar was the king of the streets back in the day.

The car currently has a 2 stage NOS with the 1st stage (200 plate) initiated by hitting the full throttle switch. The second stage (400 fogger nozzles) is actuated some time later determined by the setting on the 7AL-3 box. There is a switch to choose one or two stages. I have yet to play with the juice and get it all figured out so I know what to do if something goes haywire.

As far as going up to the midwest events, they are a "fer piece away" and my current trailer is just a utility, not enclosed. There is a Mopar event at HSV in the Summer and maybe folks who are close enough may want to come to that. Another thought is Louisville, KY where there is a big Mopar scene.

It's good to see that the Demon will be put to good use again! I grew up seeing Mike run his heads up cars at Brainerd Optimist dragstrip.

I don't have an exact date on the explosion but Mike was piloting the car at the time. I think it was 2001? However I do remember seeing the car at Brainerd right after he got the car sorted out from the explosion. If I remember correctly there was minimal damage - mostly cooked wiring. The hood may still be orbiting the earth tho..

There is a Mopar Action write up on the car. I will see if I can find it and scan it in.

I hope to see the car again at the Huntsville show this summer!

That hood went straight up probly 50 or 75 feet! It was like a square column fire straight up out of the engine bay! Never forget seeing that. Sorry I don't recall the year though.

Always loved that car, even though I never
got to see it in person. I have a picture
of it on my garage wall...wheels up high at the starting line! It's got the black cowl hood with the black side stripes in the magazine pic.

Good luck, and have loads of fun with it Airwoofer

Mopars are few and far between at HSV especially since Wild Bill passed.

Well, The fools sold me tags and insurance and I got the car out on the street ETs Sunday for a little test driving. This thing is an absolute beast on the street and I never got over 1/2 throttle when punching it, didn't even get into the cam (keeping it under 4500 or so) and 50 MPH. The smallish radiator (reverse flow) is OK at 45 cruising but when you have to slow the fan/radiator can't keep up and it gets up around 200 degrees. 1st gear is about useless except to get you to 2nd and that gear is useless at 1/4 throtle or more. This was with 6 PSI in the tires. I can't wait until the track opens in March for some TnT. Hopefully I can get up to a full motor pass on the trans brake. In the meanwhile I will be cleaning up a little laundry list of stuff to fix.

I am probably going to sell the engine and the things it takes to put it into an A-body. Anybody interested in a turn key, fresh 499 Keith Black water / B1 engine that supposedly made 1250 on the dyno with the spray send me a PM. I will be including the very large headers/exhaust, B1 intake with the fogger system (and a bunch of plumbing), reverse flow radiator, vaccuum system, and probably all the stuff for the data system forward of the firewall (maybe including the Racepak SC1000 box too). Gonna be looking for $15K for all. Will put a classified here and the other Mopar sites as well as RJ.

I have a new 540 I built that will go in it's place. Too bad I built that engine with so much compression but that jerk Josh at Indy sold me the wrong pistons and I will have to deal with 14-1 and C-16 until I can fix that. Gonna put in a new radiator and headers

Mopars are few and far between at HSV especially since Wild Bill passed.

Well, The fools sold me tags and insurance and I got the car out on the street ETs Sunday for a little test driving. This thing is an absolute beast on the street and I never got over 1/2 throttle when punching it, didn't even get into the cam (keeping it under 4500 or so) and 50 MPH. The smallish radiator (reverse flow) is OK at 45 cruising but when you have to slow the fan/radiator can't keep up and it gets up around 200 degrees. 1st gear is about useless except to get you to 2nd and that gear is useless at 1/4 throtle or more. This was with 6 PSI in the tires. I can't wait until the track opens in March for some TnT. Hopefully I can get up to a full motor pass on the trans brake. In the meanwhile I will be cleaning up a little laundry list of stuff to fix.
