Hey, Thanks for putting me on the list. I was hoping to have a chance to drive it...

Yes, you stumbled correct. That was it from quite a while back.

That is actually a model against a green screen that was later replaced by the Nelson Supercar garage... The real one is being driven somewhere in California by the Stig.

I have spent almost an entire night watching NRE videos. I really enjoyed what they are doing. I wish I had the dough to pony up for one of his engine upgrades.

You're a lucky person to have a passion that can be fed. Keep up the good work, and I can't wait to see the final product. 0-60 in Zoooom!

The harder you work, the luckier you get. Speedster is one lucky guy.

Oh I work hard!! But my line of work can only take me so far. All good things happen for a reason, and right now good things have happened, otherwise I wouldn't be where I am, happy, but not stinking rich....yet....

Your car is nice as is - enjoy it! The SST isn't the first nor the last but the technology now is pretty spectacular. Even the Firebird is a wild car, but this is a notch above that in terms of cutting edge.

That is a pretty radical number...

Just have to wait and see. It's killing me as much as you. I have a range in mind and hope to equal or beat it.

Originally I wanted this car to look 100% stock, idle stock, get 25 mpg and pump out 1000 hp, but at this stage it was decided to kick it up a notch. So you have now seen that heads were changed and upgraded for considerably higher flow capacity. Something about a motor making so much power should not idle like it's electric, so the decision was made to chuck the hydraulic roller LS7 cam and run a solid roller with a NASCAR valvetrain. So the heads are now topped with nascar springs and a full T&D shaft roller rocker setup. This setup has proven to be bulletproof and should last for 100,000 miles with no problem.

N- You are so logical you scare me sometimes. You don't miss a whole lot. I guess in your profession you keep track of the details.
And it was 1952 I guessed….. Radical? Absolutely!
