They were indeed 1959 Pontiac 389 engines Mickey Thompson used in his 4 engine streamliner.
One of the backup engines.
12 were built.
2 were stroked 413's.
2 were bored & stroked 455's.


Reverse flow cooling system, last year 1959.
Gusher Tubes shown, water elbows not on the heads.

Had to stay together 10 miles flat out on Nitromethane Alky Mix.
I like my Nostalgia yet.
Have a complete 1959 389.


Billet heads needed for Nitro.
But only Pontiac 389 heads with full water jackets can take Nitromethane.

Have mixed feelings going here .....at least today.

Shit Is real Wiz.
Lighting Fast Reflexes needed.
Guys in vids posted jacking off.
Maybe 40 % power shown displayed.

A good Test of Reflexes needed is taking a full glass of water filled 1 inch from the top.
Glass so it's heavy.
Close your eyes .
Let go.
Catch it before it hits the ground without spilling a drop.
99.9 % will fail .

How Bill prepared me.
You can do it to another.
He must catch without spilling a drop.
Eyes closed entire time.

Chassis & tires.

Danger with Corvettes after C4 Gen in a horrific crash is falling through the Floor.
C4 has a partial steel floor rearward.

Under floor pan roll cage bars needed.

These 1000 Hp Loaded Weapons are going to get built.

What bothers me is Zero safety.
It's Mother Fucking Powerfull.

Enough to snap Frames in 1/2.

Weak Welds found.
Suspension mount points can and will fail.

Shit goes wrong and I know most are not fearless like me.
I only Fear God.
Fast reflexes.
Spin out at 140 and pull it back straight.

Doing this kind of work you want to get paid in cash.
No paper trail .

The Racing Rollcage saved his life.
Assuming the crash took place around 160-180 mph, he did scrub off some speed from 260.


Race seat.
Helmet, Firesuit & more.

Damn! Just, damn. My old Boss Brandon, the redneck with the drag bike had this cool saying. "If you are gonna be dumb and stupid, you gotta be tuff." And I think that applies here.

We are going there....

It seems like great fun.

What I have done has been behind closed doors.
Not a registered business.
Can not come back and sue.
Dealt with True Drag Racers and Street Racers.

Customer dies in a business like your Boss has and you work for him.....spouse and family can Sue and likely will.

Dealing with power to run 8 seconds flat at 170 mph in a 1/4 drag car.
Rollcage in all.

Suicide in an uncaged Corvette.

I looked at all those -bolt in cages....Fucken junk.
Has to be Custom Fabbed and TIG Welded in.

Always worst case Scenario.

Need to get away from all factory plastic and hard lines and what's done present Pro Tour.
Not for just Fuel Delivery needs but for Severe Crash And Fire Safety.

All must be plumbed like a True Drag Car or High End Road Race Car.

In tank fuel pumps Ok.
External better.

The Main Feed and Return lines must be Braided Race Fuel Hose.
Although not required in NHRA Rule book Stainless steel braided race hose is best.
All Forged AN Fuel Fittings used.
And a layout that allows 6-12 inches movement or straight hard pull before the fuel lines are stressed like a crash.

Done with carefull planned loops routing the fuel system.
