This is Revenge
It was built by Nick Butler back in the 70's with a 427 and along with Andromeda (also built by Nick) pushed the boundaries.
The car was built using sound engineering ideas and was one of the most famous cars ever built in the UK! It may look all show but even today it will show a clean pair of heels. Back in the day it was road tested by Hot Car magazine and the standing start and acceleration times were awesome! On the top speed run it broke the screen. The car still exists to this day.
It is the car to turned me on to hot rodding and customs as a child.

It should read like .010 or .005 .(considering the driver is good enough)LOL
Reaction time would not make a difference in ET at all, it is completely separate from the ET clock. Reaction time is measured from when the light turns green to when the front tire clears the stage beam....ET clock then starts when tire leaves the stage beam and stops when finish line beam is interrupted by front nose or tire..

Very talented man, great hot rod.
That is a very sweet looking little ride. I love it.

Not quite, highway 395 entering Reno. I know because I took the picture while driving my Track-T. He does run a rather healthy BBC, I also have a video back in Chattanooga of Ceec giving it a short romp.



Ceec rolling on some throttle on his big block.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g23it9aZOnc

He does get around so I don't doubt he has been through Grand Junction. Here is his ride in SE Arizona.









Here he is pulling Spooner Summit on hwy 50 heading to Lake Tahoe, again picture taken while I was driving, so not centered too good.



If you see this ugly old fart, chances are good your picture will wind up on an automotive forum.


The lovely lady that took my picture, Mary Ann.

OK, lakeroadster got me in a picture posting mood, and since the thread is about T-Buckets, that will be the subject. All pictures taken on hwy 50 just out of Carson City heading towards Lake Tahoe, pulling the steep Spooner Summit @ 7600'.


















Those 3 deuces that I like.


And of course the "No go show"


The small blower that I like.


Stock Viper power along with Viper 6 speed manual. This is Chris who is the one that brought his portable chassis dyno to a T gathering.

Another oldies saying - "If it don't go - chrome it!"

By the way, I seem to recall a song called "No Go Showboat"
