Arrow Inferno Diablo [COTW 11/24/13]

In less than 2 years I transformed my IOM Camaro from bone stock to a truly head turning machine !! once I finished with it I sold it and moved on to my next project, a white turbocharged SS which I also plan on finishing in about 2 years but I plan on keeping this Camaro for good. My ducati 1198s is my other baby , I also transformed it from bone stock to a piece of art and plan on keeping it forever

Had to double check your last post. I thought you said you ran a 9.67 1/4 mile instead of 1/8 mile. I was thinking, "Dang, what did he put in that thing!"
