Hi all; i'm new here & coming to you all the way from little old New Zealand... where we have only 3 permanent dragstrips plus a few other ones which are airfields or combined with a racing circuit.
Where it also costs a fortune to build a fast car. Crying or Very sad

I've been racing on & off now for 25yrs (since I left High School) & have had a number of quick streetcars over the years.
In 1995 I dedcided to get serious & build a Pro Streetcar which I will post some pics of as soon as the make & model list gets altered to accomodate my other cars.
I wanted the fastest street-legal door car in the country & I got my wish... a 2742lb car powered by a nitrous 352sbc running a PB of 9.08 @ 148 over the 1/4 in 1996.

I currently have a new project on the go with which I intend to regain my title & put the record way down so it wont be touched for a very long time.
My goal is mid sixes street-legal & it's taking quite some time to build due to the cost of parts here.

Anyway, onwards & upwards!
