I'll be there with a beat up 67 4dr. There is a reason I call it FrankenNova. It has parts from at least 6 other cars. At least it runs strong.

Assuming you lose 20% through your drivetrain, that should put you at about 635hp, I know he hit 500 last year, but don't know what he did this year. Should give him a run for his money, I know he had a 540 slipped under that 427 top end, but don't tell anyone I told you ;)

ps
I WILL NEED another ride in it when you get a new motor, either that 540 or another :eek:

I think I'll beat him by over 100 hp with the motor I hope to put in. You can surely have a ride again but I got a lot of mods to do now. I spoke to the guy with the race S-10 and went through the list of parts I'm gonna have to buy to go with the motor.

New Hood??
New Tranny (either powerglide or Turbo 400, 700R will never stand up to that kind of power)
Tranny shield
Flywheel shield
New fuel system
Additional roll cage
Window net
New shifter
New radiator
New drive shaft
Have to get car certified
Have to get a heath card to run that fast

We're guessing the car will run low 6's at the 1/8 or 9's at the 1/4.

Jamie,
What exactly is a Cop motor? I guess I can find the rest of those items. I supposed a black and white paint job too? I think Ron the tech guy at the track would get a kick out of a shotgun mounted in the car! He knows what I do! One of these days I'm gonna take the Sheriff plates of the squad and put them on the car at the track to see if anybody notices.
