    It was my favorite car when Hurley owned it, and it still is!

    My favorites:

    Tom Snyder's Pappy's Pride A/A
    Hurley Blakeney's (Mark Wolfe) Silent Thunder AA/AT
    Bob Phelp's '63 Vette that Volpe won the US Nats in. I think it was AA/A
    Vinnie Deceglie's '63 Vette A/A (the truck was pretty cool too)
    Tom and Merideth Haner's A/D driven by David Cook Jr.
    Bob Book's A/D
    Rick and Dick Hord's Yellow AA/A or BB/A Vette I saw for the first time at Indy in either 1996 or 2000
    Steve Matusek's Aeromotive BB/AT Mustang
    Buddy Ingersoll's Buick I was a real youngster when I saw him run but I never forgot how cool it was.

    Those are my favorites. Every other car that rolls through the staging lanes during a comp eliminator qualifying or elimination round is a close second! :)

    Rick Hord's yellow and purple "Maximum Effort" vette that ran AA/A was my all time favoritve... that thing had photographers hiding behind the wall.

    My dad's A/SR roadsters were good hot rods too. The first one (owned by Norm LaRiccia) was an animal... went 5.03 to the 1/8th in 1997 at Richmond which would have been a mid 7.90 run if you couldnt hit your index in qualifying... at the time the record was 8.07.

    His yellow roadster was a good lookin ride... the original of what Vinny has now.. by the end it was bad to the bone... Barely missed being the first roadster in the 7's with a 8.002 record run at E-town.

    I always like Jonathan Aloisio's Camero E/SM... that thing would stand on the bumper

    Pat Ross current ride is slick... looks like it just rolled off Bickel's floor and it gets with it too

    Always been a fan of Hazlett's "Purple Haze" B/A... you wanna talk about wheel speed?

    Larry Pritchett's red and silver Olds with the 400 in it (which I believe was D/SM at the time) was stout... It kind of sounded like a mini mountain motor car going through the gears and it would walk away from you in the back half

    Obviously hundreds of other cars come to mind but these were the first few that popped in

    Dave Hughes C/SM nova, Al Masottos's A/SM, Rick Voegelin's project A/SM camaro, and every other modified class that moved to comp eliminator, we should all write a chapter for a very large book, it would be a best seller!!

    Have to go with my home town heroes of Ron Neff, vette or Jolly Rancher B/ED, and then Tom Snyders Pappy's Pride.

    As a kid remember a black and gold 68 Camaro of Tony Wro????? High winding, always neat to watch
