    Car raced to a lesser extent for the next couple of years and then in 2008 yet another new engine (Diamondback 408 with Indy 360 heads & Intake); new transmission with billet drum, modified pump, hardened gears, bolt in sprag, Griner valvebody, and other high end race transmission parts; low mount Nippon alternator; new PPP shifter.

      Next came the rear disc brakes, CSR billet water pump, and wiring in relays for the trans cooler fan, water pump and radiator fan.

        Since the new engine, transmission, brakes,... the Car was raced 7 times since in 2009, in NMCA's Nostalgia Muscle Car class, where Dallas took 3rd place (while missing one of the eight events) and was NMCA's Rookie of the Year.









        While the car with a power tune and running on the ragged edge is capable of low 10s in the quarter -- it was short-shifted for a consistent 11.00 in the B/NMC class and low maintenance/high durability.

          The car is currently for sale (Looking for $25K -- but might take $20K if waived in front of my nose) as Dallas is now running Nostalgia Super Stock. It is a quality car that has had no expense spared. Everything was done with the goal of Safety first, consistency, and durability. It can easily be converted to Street/Strip or True Street Racer. It would cost me over $40,000 to find a decent Demon, do all of the paint and body, cage it and connect the subframes, do the interior and wiring, set up the suspension, install true race motor and transmission with the parts used, and all of the other top shelf parts (wheels, shifter, .....) you see done in this thread.

          Someone wanting to buy a proven car ready to race with mostly new parts, at consistent 10-second speeds that are virtually bullet-proof -- this is the car. It is good for the experienced racer not wanting to build a car or always have to wrench on it -- or slow it down (take out some throttle cable and shift at 5500 RPM instead of 7000 RPM) for the new racer wanting the ability to go faster as he gets better.

              Great build and a great car for the money.
