Yamaha powered dune buggy at the drags?

Thought I would take my dune buggy to the street drags at SpeedWorld in Surprise AZ. At this event I had a 3.2L Yamaha V-6 out of a Ford Taurus SHO in her with a M-90 Eaton Roots style blower bolted to the side of the block, and pushing 8 psi. I don't have street tires for her so I ran with my BF Goodrich Mud Terrains. Didn't have a bottle warmer for the 30 shot of Nitrous so I left it off. Fastest time of the night was a 12.49 @ 110mph

Ford SHO mid engine RWD in a Fiero Redneck dune buggy
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





Ford Dune Buggy, Flathead Inline 6
A home built dune buggy. 3 speed tranny. Made between 1949 and 1951. Could have been a truck or coupe to begin with, but the frame was shortened so there really isnt any way to tell right now. I will have to see if I can match the numbers to any specific vehicle so I know what it was to begin with. Sat in that same spot for over 30 years. When I first looked at it, I assumed it was an automatic tranny because there were only two pedals and the shifter was on the column. But upon further inspection, the gas pedal was broken off and it is a three on the tree.

Turbo'd 90 SHO vs turbo'd SHO powered buggy
Friendly drag race at Speed World on 10-18-08, between a recently turbocharged 1990 SHO and me in my dune buggy. I call the buggy "The Other Woman" and you might have seen my YouTube videos of her with the Eaton blower on her at the sand drags at Gordon's Well in Southern California. At this race, the 90 kept up with me the entire way which is very surprising when you consider that he's carrying at least a 1000 pounds more than the buggy.
