About “Dragula”

My wife and I bought this car April '08. This is the first picture I took after we pushed it off the trailer. We have gone through and completed all the work neccessay to get this old girl back on the road. She sat for about 6 years and fired up on the first try!!

Dragula is a work in progress.....but we are enjoying her every step of the way!

About “Land Shark”

The Chevy II has a new engine raising the hp to 400+ built 357ci (.040 over) w/10:1 pistons and new Comp 280 Magnum cam. The Holley was also rebuilt and jetted. Exhaust has Hooker Comp headers and matching Hooker 2-1/4" dual exhaust. Stock bucket seats, floor ratchet shifter and new interior complement a nice ride down the road. Very nice to drive on the highway and open road. Performance tuned.
