Saw this on this morning :eek:

That car is my "Eleanor". Filed right along with Unicorns and other mythical fantasy creatures.

I believe it is currently the fastest street legal thirdgen in existence with a top speed over 250mph.
Not only is it the fastest street legal 3rd gen, it is the fastest independetly documented street legal car in Europe.

I was told I cant post a vid because it involves street racing, but there is a red 86 IROC that went toe to toe with a new ZR1 up to 170 MPH without NX, and then went toe to toe with a twin turbo 800+ HP Lambo Murcielago up to 170+ on you tube. It has an SB2 engine out of a Craftsman NASCAR truck in it along with a TH400 and 5500 stall convertor. Nothing like turning 9400 rpm with a 360 NA motor.
