That fan shroud is awesome.

I'm curious what made you decide to go with a NON 69 camaro.

If I remember correctly the gentleman who purchased Red Devil is a survivor car collector from Iowa. Maybe Mark or someone in the know can chime in.

Yes Red Devil is gone and so is my home equity line of credit debit.

It went to a gentleman in Iowa, not Charley. I already miss Red Devil, but I like working on a new project. Red Devil had a great run for “another Red ’69 Camaro with a SBC”. I doubt I’ll ever top that car for everything it did.

2nd Motor State with the car less than 48 hours old
1st OUSCI 2010
2nd OUSCI 2011
1st Holley LS Fest 2010
2nd Holley LS Fest 2011
1st Heidts 2011
Features in Hot Rod, PHR, Camaro Perf, Car and Driver and others
Featured in Sony Gran Turismo Game (the release is soon I hope)
Featured in Optima Battery Commercial (Watch Speed it is on all the time)

The ‘67 is an evolution of Red Devil: A little more power,little less weight a little more grip… I did a ’67 because they are a bit smaller and lighter than a ’69.

No major changes:
All DSE Chassis
Thomson Engine
D&D Performance Trans
Brembo Brakes
Ricks Fuel Tank
SED ABS Brakes and Carbon Fiber Hood
Etc…..

I hope to make an event in the Sept. time frame with it. Working on these projects part time with a lot of help from good guys like Sled Alley, Thomson Automotive, Dave Mikels, Ryan Kuhlenbeck, and Paul and Joe VanNus still takes a lot time. I’m still just a regular guy working out of my 3 car garage with a day job as an engineer. I don’t do all the work myself due to time constraints and recognizing my core strengths. My core strength is vision, engineering and project management. As an example I could paint my car but it would look like a crap compared to the job the VanNus team can do. I farm out work to people who are better and faster than me on a certain tasks. I can see the whole car in my head so I can coordinate the work with a few shops fairly effectively. A good friend of mine gave me some advice 15 years ago that I still stick to this day “Do one thing on your project a day and it will get done. Even if it is just making a phone call to order a small part it all adds up”.

The OUSCI deal has become very competitive and I have my eye on getting faster this year with more style. I hope I can bring enough car to hold my own one more year.
See ya at the track.

Mark

Awesome feed back, thanks Mark. Hope the build runs smooth.

Aiming for Mid-West venues. Buttonwillow is way too far away to tow to.

Holley LS Fest Sept. 7 - 9
Lingenfelter Event Sept. 21 - 23

Mark, do you have a name for it yet? I remember when you named Red Devil, but it was blue. LOL!! I'll be watching this one too. By the way Mark, can I use you GM discount to get some of those ceramic brakes and an LS9's?
