49 Plymouth Business Coupe with Taurus 3.2 SHO engine, Ranger 5 speed, Explorer 8.8 rearend
I've been building this for about 8 months and hope to be on the road sometime in May. It's 49 Plymouth Business Coupe with a 94 Taurus 3.2 SHO engine, Ranger 5 speed, Explorer 8.8 rearend with 3:73 limited slip, custom headers, and 4 wheel disc brakes.

Initial Startup, running in the parking lot by my shop. A few donuts, a few drifts and some straight line runs. A piss poor attempt to laying a patch! lol My friends and I have spent over 400 hours building this car. It is caged with race seats and harness belts. I plated the chassis and completely rebuilt the back end of the frame to suit my driving needs! I used the subframe from the Taurus SHO and modified it to fit the Fiero. I also plated the subframe and added a 1/2" thick aluminum skidplate! This baby is built to drive the piss out of it! :D It will be interesting when I start running exotic blends of fuel, as I am only starting off with some 87 Octane fuel to start with here. More to come in time.... I have an MTX and a auto Tranny I am willing to sell!

SHO powered buggy dusting an LS-1 buggy the wrong way!
When I dropped the hammer, the front end came up and I got a little out of sorts. I tried to find him after the race to apologize but he scooted. My buggy has a 3.2 liter SHO motor from an automatic transmission SHO, with a Roots style Eaton blower from an 89 Ford Thunderbird SuperCoupe. It's puts 278 hp to the ground and has 300 pound*feet of torque from about 1200 rpms up to 6000 where the blower runs out of steam. Really should have gone with an M-112. Now she's turbo'd and too scary for this old man. Looking to sell her to someone with bigger cajones. Craigslist Phoenix. $ 34,900.00 I took it to the asphalt drags also and did a 12.48 at 110 mph on knobbie tires. What a hoot. Tom
