58 Chevy Delray business coupe

I've owned my '58 for 46 years and earned 13 trophies racing in SoCal when there were 10 dragstrips...now there's only one 1/4 mile and one 1/8 mile. The car has plexiglas windows, a built 409 w/two Carter AFBs, 4-spd and 4.88 rear end gears. With 7 inch hard rubber slicks and minimal traction I turned a best of 114 MPH in 12.40 ET. Today, with better tires and a prepared track I'm sure it will get into the 11s. I've installed roller rockers w/titanium valve spring retainers and will put 1 inch spacers under the carbs this weekend. I drive the car to shows and cruises but have to run race gas...it's worth it.
