John did the legend right. it's not a real S/S 413 car, and he's not trying to pass it off as one, but it sure looks the part. John also heads up the Midwest Mopar Wheelstanders, a group of die-hard Mopar racers that wheelstand 3 to 5 feet in the air. This 3,500-pound car runs 10.50s at 124 mph and cuts a 1.38 sixty-foot time on a 10.5 tire, along with standing up 3 to 4 feet in the air when competing in wheelstand competitions. It's just how the song goes, "Tach it up, tach it up! Buddy, gonna shut you down.
