Pictures are backwards. That picture is a picture of the 2010 Hennessey 600. Here is the ZL1 that is making the trip.

Just doing 650 this trip. Waited 5 months and 24 days on the Z. Would have to leave it at Hennessey for 30 days for the 700. Just don't want to let it go for that long right now. Want to play some first....will do 700 later.

Just a word of caution. When you leave the Hennessey facility in Sealy it would not be wise to jump on I-10 and drop the hammer too quickly. The DPS patrol the area very heavily and they ARENT forgiving. :thumb down: I live 10 miles from there and have had my fill of getting stopped in the area. Also, anything over 100 mph and they can take you to jail on the spot and charge you with reckless endangerment. Maybe John will let you take it out on the track behind the facility.

Thanks. I'll be driving the motor home out. Took the 600 on the road course and drag strip last time.

Wish you would have given me this warning three years ago when I left their facility. 1st on ramp... nailed it to hear my new exhaust for the first time and immediately got a ticket... and the speed limit is 70 out there...

What Camaros... all I see is one beautiful rig...

LOL! Yep...they patrol heavily in that area and they have all the tricks down to catch you on the ramps so radar detectors are useless. They know Hennessey is there of course and there are several truck stops in the area as well so its heavily patrolled. BTW...the speed limit in Texas has been raised to 75 so expect them to be changing those signs in the area over the next year.
