About “Passion”

Blown 540 Chevy on alcohol. 1100+ HP. Richmond 5 speed, 9" rear. All original steel body. Chopped 5 inches.

Motor was on carbs and gas last year, but has since been converted to an alky burner.

Also did a repaint adding some additional pearls and graphics. Almost ready to go for 2007.

Haven't taken a trip to the strip as it won't pass tech and we're not willing to put all the required crap on the car. It runs as good as it looks and is pretty well self explanitory.

About “Shoebox”

Completely rebuilt 55 Chevy turned into a Drag Car.

I've had the car for two seasons, which this past season decided to bump down to prostreet, and wanted to go with an all motor combination - 632. But I might go with a 555 w/ nitrous or 555 w/ twin turbos.
