    Thanks for pointing that out
    It's a 1969 RoadRunner Numbers Matching Car

  9. 9.3 quarter mile puts it near the Top-10 fastest cars for that distance, at a speed of 150+ mph. That is impressive. With a car that gorgeous, I sorta cringe that it's used for dragging. ;)

    Thanks Shaun here is a picture of a Pro Mod car that my brother also owned and was NHRA sanctioned for 6.5 not sure what it actually did but he sold that. He also has a twin turbo 70 chevelle that he plans on running this upcoming season he predicts it will run in the 8's. He's pretty serious about drag racing, I know this it's a very expensive "hobby"
