About “The Camaro”
I bought this car when I was 16 years old as a daily driver to school and work. At that time it had a corvette 283 motor with a powerglide transmission. It has gone through many modifications since that day. Major modifications include the blown 454 motor that was dynoed in the car at 751 horses with 660 lbs of torque. It has a manual valve body 400 turbo transmission. A narrowed Dana 60 rear with 410 gears, a billet drive shaft. The interior has a 12 point cage with the whole interior including the cage covered in tweed. Custom paint and graphics along with a set of wheelie bars finish up the outside.
About “Bad Belvedere”
This is my pride and joy. I have owned it since 1985, and have raced it almost that whole time. I Run the car in Super/Pro. My best time was 9.74 in Topeka Kansas. It ran 10.30s at Bandimere Speedway.I run the Bad Machine at Bandimere Speedway And Pueblo Motor sports park. in Colorado.
On April 28th of this year I had a very unfornate Accident. A Milidon external oil pump gasket to the external line failed on a run. At the top end of the track.Oil dumped under my slick. The car turned hard right hit the wall rolled then hit the other wall than fliped back on its wheels.The cars body is a total loss, The drive train was good. I was very lucky and walked away. I was beat up but no broken bones. This is The worst thing that could happen to a Drag racer,and it happened to me. The Belvedere will be missed.
I am planing to build a 1964 Fury. I will post pictures as the car is put together. Most of the parts will interchange so the heart of the Belvedere will live.
