About “NOT A COLT”

I built this car by myself in a single car garage. The only two things that I paid somebody else to do for me was to weld in the S & W rollbar and building the transmission. Otherwise it is of my own two hands and some cussing! It has run low 14's at Bandimere's 5800 foot elevation and has run a best of 13.08 @ 108.75 on nitrous. It is a good and consistent bracket race car.
Best of all it I built for less than $5000.00 including original vehicle purchase and could be duplicated including painting it for $7000.00 or less (mine is in black primer).
