Featured Car - Allan Gorneault's 1986 T-Type

Show car quality, race car results!

This 1986 T-Type with a Stage II motor is definitely a screamer! As you can see from the pictures, it has a very understated stance, deceptively simple appearance, and great attention to detail. Allan has goals to get it solidly in the 9s and is well on the way to reaching that goal.

The really cool thing is that this car is totally streetable and is driven! Allan's maiden voyage to the track yielded a 10.16 @ 133 MPH spinning through the 60' and running 9-10 A/Fratio(really rich) His next run had a 1.46 short time, but he short shifted from the unexpected hard launch. He should be in the 9s soon!!
