It has had a best sixty foot time of 1.428 and will run 10.80 at 124mph in good air . The car weighs 3150 with me in it . I run mostly ET Bracket classes and Nostalgia races without "Electronics" We have won a few Championships including Los Angeles County Raceway Track Champion in the California Classics series 2003 and 2004 . Good Guys Vintage racing Association Champion in HOT ROD Eliminator class 2004 - We won the 44th Annual March Meet in our class as well as the 5th Annual Fuel and Gas Finals . We have a couple of NHRA "Wally's" to our credit from National Dragster Challenge wins as well . We'll be at Famoso Raceway this weekend at the American Nostalgia Racing Association's Summer Nationals .
