Turbo Maverick Sleeper Outruns Drag Car
Josh Dillon's '73 Maverick Grabber doesn't look like it should run mid 6's
in the eighth mile, but it does! And outruns lots of full on drag cars.
Josh has driven this car on several road trips, and constantly beats on it.
The car looks rough, and even sounds sort of rough, but has a 75mm turbo that makes all the difference. On this
pass, the car made 12 pounds of Boost and runs a 6.62 at 105 miles per hour in
the eighth mile. The rough exterior and stock steel wheels make this
Maverick a killer sleeper!
The car has a 460ci big block Ford with stock block and stock crank. The
heads are stock castings that Josh ported at home. turbo is a Borg Warner S475, and Josh built every
piece of the turbo setup on a budget.
Transmission is a C6 automatic with stock hard parts and a Dacco torque
converter. Rear end is still the stock 8-inch!!!!

Fiat Coupe - Top Gear 1994
This is a very hard to find video of the original Top Gear review of the
Fiat Coupe by Jeremy Clarkson. It hails from the days of poor video, sorry
for the quality!
I do not own the rights to this video. If I am contacted by one of the
copyright holders to take it down I will do so immediately.

Fiat Coupe 20v Turbo vs Corvette Z06 - Drag Race Santa Pod
Even though I just missed out on the win it was still worth documenting :)
The Corvette Z06 is the latest and greatest in the long line of true
American muscle. Packing a 7 litre LS7 V8 producing 505bhp, the Z06 will do
sub 4 second 0-60 and 8 second 0-100!
So it's a blown 2 litre Italian Stallion FWD vs 7 litres of American Muscle
RWD! Both our cars can do an 11 second quarter but too much gas off the
line bouncing on the limiter leaves the Z06 ahead at the 60ft, 3rd gear
starts to real him in but by this time it was too late and the victory goes
across the pond :)
