Featured Car Fred Keene's 1986 T Type
Featured Car
Something about the black out trim and dark windows tells you this isn't Gramma's Regal ....
Fred says that the car is about 80% restored with a fresh paint job, engine work and a unique transmission combination. Performance to date is a 14.08@104 MPH (enough MPH for 12s if he gets traction...at that time the car was "peglegged", had 6 year old BFG street tires on the rear that were hardened and dry rotted and the tranny had a nasty 2-3 gear flair up). Despite those challenges, it was Fred's first time racing and he had a BLAST!
