Definitely not worth the asking price, but in all fairness it IS a 9 second car... has a 505 in it.

It's been on ebay several times before this, but I think he was actually asking less before...

It would be cool if it needed FOUR slicks! Think a 242 would stand up to the power? With 285 miles on it, that's like what, 142 trips down the quarter-mile? Doesn't seem too bad........

It's a quarter mile down, and a quarter mile back. It's not 1140 trips either.

never seen a full blown dragster make the 1/4 mile back. as soon as they cross the finish line, pull chute and have a tow vehicle tow it back to the pits.

so considering it has a wheelie bar and a chute, i am pretty positive that it only see's a 1/4 mile per time

Pretty sure I can build pretty much ANYTHING that does 9 sec for less than that.

It's still rolling, ticking off mileage, whether or not it's under its own power!. But, if it's being pushed or pulled, and the engine is not running, so much the better. And yeah, I must have been doing Washington math! How's 576 passes sound?
