Tony and Gillian Argentino - The Hitman - blown alcohol Chev
Tony and Gillian Argentino's 1936 Chev drag racer is known as "The Hitman", and is a theme car that represents history from America, which now resides in Perth, Western Australia. With its curvy shapes and vivacious body, the car represents beauty, charm and character, all whilst the tough supercharged and injected alcohol burning engine provides power for the machine.
Recent testing of the car got Tony familiar with all of the levers and buttons, and the crew kept the car working good enough through two successive race days and acquired several personal best times along the way. When testing a car of this caliber, power and driver need to familiarize and adjust, and the team was exceptional in achieving what they have in just three outings.
Hitman Racing is also heavily involved off the track where Gillian takes care of marketing the car. She has been involved with the establishment of Supercharged Outlaws in Western Australia, and more info and merchandise is available from http://www.superchargedoutlawswa.com.au
Tony has been racing on and off since he was 17 (23 years) starting in street, then modified until Outlaws started in WA and is best known for their previous car, a 1934 Ford 3 window coupe altered. This Hitman car was purchased from Terry Hall of Terry Hall Race Car Bodies in Vermont USA. It was running Pro-Mod and the Super Chevy series and has a best time of 6.30 @ 220mph. The Argentino's purchased the car as a roller, and are using the engine and gearbox from their old '34. The car is a 1936 Chevy Master (carbon fibre), it has a chrome-moly chassis, 442 cubic inch Chevy (iron block) and the engine is built and maintained by Tony. Induction comes from a 14-71 Littlefield hi-helix retro Supercharger, it has an FTC converter and 2-speed Powerglide, and the rear end is a Mark Williams modular rear with Strange Ultracase 4.56 gears and 40 spline axles.
Tony and Gillian would like to thank all of the crew for their help, Kwinana Performance for parts and the hands on effort of the Boss and staff who also double as Crew. Graham, Jan and Neil from Southside Engine Centre, FTC Race Converters for looking after the converter and gearbox, Spud at DJW Engineering for making all the nice mods to get the running gear to fit and making nifty things as needed. Fuchs Oils for supplying the oils and race fuel, Genie Exhaust, and The Moving Man Removals.

Assembly Arlington, Texas
For 1964, the Impala was slightly restyled, reverting to a more rounded, softer look. Out back, the signature taillight assembly had an "upside-down U" shaped aluminum trim strip above the taillights, but the lights themselves were surrounded by a body-colored panel. The 409-cubic-inch (6.7 L) returned as the big-block option, but the 4X2 carburetor setup was no longer on the option list. SS models continued to feature the engine-turned aluminum trim. Rooflines were carried over from '63 unchanged. The 1964 model has been praised by Westcoast rap groups since in the 1990s, with endorsers such as Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, Skee-Lo and The Game among many others.
