Wednesday nite one of my customers was testing a new turbo charged/pro street shoot out cars at Mid mich. dragway and the transmission let go, filled the drivers compartment with tranny fluid and caught fire. He has 3rd degree burns to his feet and face. Hes doing ok now and says he can'nt wait to get out and back running, tough bugger I guess. It just takes balls to do it again????

A lot of people do not know that EJ was the original Monster Garage Guy He built a lot of real cool stuff a long tome ago.

back to those Chevy powered motorcyles the last ones were called Widow maker;

Imagine sitting on that thing on the line With engine reving and rear tire spinning 150 MPH Plus and it was pushed off the center stand for the launch..... Burned the tire for the entire quarter Mile...The guy had Balls
