    So my LeBaron sat on the dealer lot for a year and a half. At that point, Pat Bennett bought it and drove it home. It had 8 miles on it. Since then it's been a drag car. Tonight, it had the fastest time in it's career- 7.209 at 93 mph with a 1.500 60'!!! I tell you what, Gary Herche, of Herche Engines, knows his stuff!!! I can't wait until I get the go-fast trans, Cal-Tracs bars/leaf springs, and solid body mounts. Almost a foot wheelstand on weight without them!! Good Luck to the rest of you in this great late season weather!! Wayne

    Sorry, no video. I was riding solo on this one. The track takes photos so I'll have to wait to see if they took any good ones. It ended up spinning in the second round. The track is not the best prepared and it's pretty hard to hook 9 inches of rubber there.

    hehe, can't run spray.....i have to buy new rear leaf springs (they are the originals) so I'll just bite the bullet and get the split mono/traction bars

    Then lighten up the trans internals and go fully rollerized.

    A new car would be cheaper.
