So just to recap here your plan is to never have been to a real drag strip once in your adult life. Which can only mean no real practice with the tree or launching on a prepped track. take all of your adult life to build one unstable engine. ands go race the big boys before that one chance in your life comes apart?

Well, Godspeed, buddy. But between us, you might have better odds playing the lotto.

Wiz,

You know I am partial to the C4 drag platform.

A friend of mine (who passed last year) ran NMCA events like me.

He was in a different class.

Bob Curran. you can google him if you want.

From Bartlett Illinois.

Ran 7's in his small block C4. Street legal.

Hi Matt.
I got hired by a Famous Corvette shop in Chicago today.
Also stopped by Crazy Eds house.
He has his old Race Car on the lift.
Getting revamped.
No Prep Drag.
Around 1800-2000 Single 88-91 mm Turbo planned
About $30k away.
Eddie was happy to see me. Been 8 months.
Buzzing home to the Farm in my 87 C4 Vert doing 90-100.
Feels good driving my Corvette once again.

wiz,wiz,wiz,

You miss the point.

I raced NMCA true street.

It's more than a car with lights.

You have to show proof of insurance, have plates, lights, turnsignals, brake lights, etc.

A registered, street legal car car.

My class would run 30 miles on a NASCAR track to prove it was a street car, Then drag race.

Look up the rules Wiz.

Wiz,

I was posting friends of mine from NMCA

From Illinois.

Are you buddies with that car owner you posted? Or just something you found on the net?

Here's another pic of another friend of mine from NMCA.
He had a picture of my car in his shop.
Also from Illinois.

That Is A Huge collection of C1 Corvettes Matt !

The 1969 Trans Am is real.
Trans Am lettering is too big like 1973 on the rear spoiler.

1970 TA is nice.

Buccaneers Red Looks good on that 1973 TA

Buddy, I've never made a penny off of racing. I am a Corvette specialist. Across all generations. I am here to tell you, mechanic, there is money top be made building, wiring, and tuning for people. And that money pays everytime, not just when you're lucky.
