Shows, yes, but on-strip runs, no. "I really don't have any interest in doing that," Gary says. "I'm 62 years old, and I've seen too many videos of guys losing it, and the car has no rollcage. while I might be tempted, I know the car will run in the high 10s the way it is now, and with some gears and tires maybe a little quicker than that, but I don't have any interest in that."
When asked if he had any advice for someone considering a similar "tribute" car, either pro-built or DIY, Gary replied, "Make sure you know what you're buying, and whose expertise you're buying."
