Extra Information from the Owner
Originally built to blast around the tight two lane roads here around rural West Virginia... Got away with it for years, with several close calls. There was a particular VERY twisty 25 mile stretch with very few - legal - passing zones that got timed regularly late on Sunday nights when there was no traffic! MAJOR fun, but this kind of stuff is a time bomb waiting to go off, so off came the road race suspension and gears, and in went the drag stuff and 4.33's....

Recently (summer 07), I installed a new 306 with twisted wedge heads and ran the times above using a 200hp nitrous plate. Still shifting at 6800 rpm.
