8 second Street Car Cruising the Las Vegas Strip!-Finnegan's Garage Ep.82

  • Published: 05 November 2019
  • This is the story of how myself, 12-Volt Dave, Cotten, Merlin Johnson, Kelvy Limon and Brian Macy took Blasphemi to Las Vegas November 1-2, 2019 for the NHRA Dodge Pennsoil Nats, won a grudge match against another Gasser, and then went out cruisin.

    Blasphemi has been on a tear lately while winning Hot Rod Drag Week's A/GAS class and then winning a best two of three grudge match in Vegas. In Vegas it ran 8.63, 8.66, 8.68 and 8.69 passes at over 155 mph. The darn thing is reliable and consistent enough to be a bracket race car even with the stick shift and straight axle suspension.

    Now that the racing and cruising is over we've driven the car into the convention center for the annual SEMA Show and we'll have videos of this awesome event coming throughout the week. Stay tuned!

        How does this transmission work? I see he doesn’t have to clutch during shifts but it’s not a sequential. What’s the lever/handle for on the shifter?

          It's some sorta crash box, similar to a rally car gearbox. You only need to clutch during downshifts.

            Glad you got to do that! I know that car was a dream of yours before you ever bought it and it's nice to see your dream come to fruition! Congrats! That is definitely not a roadkill car!

                                      Why the fuck are the trunk lid and other assemblies pinned to the car instead of "taped on"? How the hell can you even run like that on a licensed track?!

                                            It would be cool to actually have a LS equipped '55 Chevy UBER car for real. You'd make a killing.
