I think it was an ex Grumpy/Larry Lombardo car but this racer that was first in the 8s (NHRA legal) with a big block built his own motors ...

Good hint ..and still builds big blocks today.

 

All in- all done? ... I'll say the name.

  At that time frame Musi was lucky to get in the show in a national event. He did get much better in later years. still a builder too. So Excellent guess .

 

IIRC the Monza never ran a Big block due to the NHRA weight breaks. Maybe in IHRA (?) and in match race trim. 

 

The first big block Chevy in the 8s was a Camaro.

That was in the 7's anyway.

 

I'm so confused.

Recap -

Who was the first Driver/Engine builder in a NHRA legal Pro/Stock Big Block Camaro to run under 9 seconds in the 1/4 mile at a sanctioned event?

 

He still builds

Was wearing platform shoes

White car
