About “**rocket**”

3800 supercharged with a 2 inch pulley on it that is putting out 10.4 pounds of boost. It is putting 259 horse to the ground and it runs 9.4 in the 1/8.

About “The Z”

Purchased in Feb 2001 with 47k on the odo.
I've been moding it slowly, progressively,
to make it the car it is today.

Not a show car, or dyno queen.

A clean, fast, driver, with style, class, and performance.
Currently with over 120k on the odo.
