Snappy the owner, ran it in the Texas Mile. 217 MPH, its bad ass. He is building a COPO Camaro with the goal of hitting 280 MPH in the Texas Mile. 2700 hp motor.

Wow...what all is done to the red one....me and my brother have always wanted to come to watch there. He is building a 2002 sunset orange Camaro z28 with 20k original miles on it. It's got a 5.3 with a 78mm precision turbo....he's wanting 8-900 to the wheels. No roll cage and pure street car...I mean it's not a 2700hp COPO but it will work!

Sounds like a bad ass car. I think the orange one has 1200 with nitrous. I would love to build another fbody. Maybe one day.

Yeah I'll post some pics later...he had a 2001 as with a procharger on it . I was a 6spd and dynoed 600/610 and ran a 6.52 @107 with a 1.45 60'. We don't have 1/4 within 200 miles of us..

Seems like he needs more aero as opposed to pushing that brick...So much power is needed to get beyond the 150 mark and aero makes it even harder if the CD is not minimized (while preserving some downforce to keep it from flying off the road like that Lambo did at the mile a couple of years ago!)

Sweet none the less. Very sweet

McRat (DurmaxDiesels) land speed in Casper 2008

"Casper" is a 2005 GMC Duramax diesel 2500HD pickup with Allison Transmission. McRat drove it to a peak sustained speed of 174.586 mph at Bonneville on pump diesel. It is the world's fastest production diesel pickup, with OEM axles, transmission, and engine running a single turbo.

Bonneville looks as smooth as the road I live on! Ha that's pretty bad a**!! I would be interested to see how that thing handled running that fast. I'm sure he had some good suspension work but still...

You and Snappy would hit it off. Both old farts that like chrome. Lol. You should come out to the Texas mile in Oct. It will be a blast.
