Might be a member's car, I think I've seen it before but I hadn't seen the full story.

That car represents a ton of work. More work that I'd take on that is for sure. They replaced a lot of sheet metal and some of it was pretty critical such as the firewall. I don't think I have the stones to tackle a firewall replacement. I also like the fact that he dropped a full second off the ET with tuning. Low 11's on street tires at that weight is really impressive. Not very many drivers can pull off that trick. I've never figured it out that is for sure. My stuff usually just goes up in smoke when I try to go fast!

Very cool car and nice uplifting story about a good kid up

He must be getting good at clutch management sticking an E-body with that much torque under his foot. Look out for this guy in F.A.S.T. series soon with that much driving talent drive

Great story and that car runs great. The guy can drive a stick car that's for sure. He actually runs a combo close to mine in some ways. And its his dream car just like my 63 is for me. And he is smart for using Dwayne's cam and letting him do much work on the eng as we all know Dwayne's engines run awesome. One super fine Mopar. up Ron

Great car and great kid! This thing looks as good as it goes. Bryan is a talented young driver. I'm proud to have raced him a few times this year.
