Tom Cannon
Tom purchased his Challenger from Bill Worley about 10 years ago. When he was a teenager, Tom liked to hang out in Bill's garage learning about Mopars. Tom tells us it was Bill and his T/A that paved the way for him to indulge in the F.A.S.T. class of racing. Tom's F.A.S.T. Challenger (416 ci) is quick, going 11.57 at 123. That makes his T/A the baddest small-block car in that class. He doesn't consider his car a race car or a single purpose machine. Taking the T/A out on cruise night or down to the ice cream stand is always a pleasure.
