    Bonneville....These guys had their company and tried to get a Chevy LS setup and thought owners would go for it. They know about the Cad motor now but they already had it built,so 120 MPH is still not too shabby!!!

    Hello Keeper,

    I'm not sure what the video is showing us. Is that a GM motorhome that is being run? Can you tell us more about the setup - engine size, any power adders, trans gearing?

    Thanks,

    d

    Keeper,

    Thanks for that link. It provided the information I was seeking. That is a very impressive vehicle.

    The Palmer Designs video was interesting and brought back some pleasant memories.

    We went down the long course in our Cad 507 EFI powered '78 GMC after the meet was over one year, but at a sedate and responsible speed.

    Still, it was nice to have made the drive to see what the long course looks like through our own windshield. Hey, we can dream, can't we?
