May 14th, 2009, 02:41 PM
Just got back from a little run up to Fredricksburg and some cool cars.

Flatonia Texas BBQ stophttp://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y263/breck4x4/TEXAS%205_09/IMGA0351.jpg

502 1940 Tudor


cool custom c10 with ostrich inlay interior


Luling City Market for BBQ on the way home

ZR1 and Twin Turbo Ford GT

ZR1 (that is going to The Ring in Fall) and me hiding behind the Q. The slow Vette.:(

Bunch of Snakes actually this is probably the cleanest shop I have ever seen.

For Scotty a GTR getting the Hennessey work over. Dave said the 2nd gen launch control is better suited to modified set-ups.

Cant really see the turbos here but that is definatly not the stock intake ducting for a Ford GT.

some more here: http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y263/breck4x4/TEXAS%205_09/ not to many though.

That one has the 502 and the other one in the album with the walls is leather bucket and a 383.

;1456179']That one has the 502...

Okay, I'd leave that. :silly:

It needs lowered and the top chopped 4" or so.

You noticed that although you can't see the twin turbos on that GT, the friggin' SUPERCHARGER is still on the motor. :eek::eek: Right there on top, stock blower (Maggie).

DAY-UM!!!!! :drool::drool::drool:

I've heard of turbos piggybacked on a blower, but never actually seen one.

I can't imagine the kind of power that makes.

Great post. :hail::hail:

I'll drive the Cougar Eliminator. Looks like a Boss 302 version.

Went to Hennessey today and saw Dave. Their new thing is Camaros. Take a stock Camaro, tear the motor out, put in a warmed over LS9 (ZR1 motor), dump the stock suspension, put in coilovers, huge Brembos, the whole deal.

They make over 700hp. Shop bought 22 Camaros, have sold 20, at around 120K each.

Dave took me out to their track in his CTS-V. Again, around 700 horse. Holy cats, it was awesome. NEED to get the wife to agree to driving a Hennessey prepped CTS-V for her next car.

That shop was amazing. What a great afternoon.

Oh, forgot to add- that twin turbo/supercharged Ford GT was in their showroom still. Makes over 1,000HP. Dave drove it to 235mph, said it was dead stable. Nice.

The good stuff:

Brake and suspension upgrades on one of the Camaros:


Where the LS9 goes:


The shop:


Now THIS is a GTR. That pig needs the seven-hundie it's getting. Awesome:


GTR motor and trans out, getting worked over:


Customer cars waiting to be picked up. WANT a CTS-V...........BADLY


Cars waiting to be worked on. Yes, that's a Cyber Grey ZR1 that apparently doesn't have enough HP from the factory:


What a place.

What kind of rental did you drive to Sealy? Some parts of the freeway from Houston out there are just built for high speed runs.

BTW spill the beans what did Dave do to get the LeMons penalty?

December 5th, 2009, 01:29 PM
Biggest POS rental of all time. Chrysler Sebring. Seriously, that car was a complete pile of manure.

2000 lap penalty for the turbo setup on the LeMons car. It was fairly badass. There's this total chitbox of a car, and this killer turbo setup on it. Chromed out, the whole nine.

I can see how it wasn't entirely within the spirit of the LeMons deal. One team apparently had an old BMW and had transplanted an M3 motor into it.

I've always said I wanted a Pantera for my collection, but I might have to add a GT to the list.
