The rebirth of the original 1967 Camaro Funny Car of Dekker & Mueller. The Logghe Stage 1 chassis has been updated to meet current specs by Ed Quay Race Cars. An alcohol-injected big block Chevy with a vintage Hilborn injectors propels the car down the track close to the et’s of the original blown car.

We completed the project and ran events starting in 2007. A new engine was prepared over the off season in 2009 and ready for the 2010 season. We won Editor’s Choice at Super Chevy Show in July ’10 and ran another successful season. 2011 brought another great season of nostalgia events.
