Race Proven Z06


You get to come here and do this and it’s
fun, it’s fun, I enjoy seeing people go fast and get new bests and stuff like that. My name is Fran Schatz, we’re at Holley LS
Fest, Bowling Green, Kentucky. It’s a 2007 ZO6, started out as a street car. It was the first ZO6 to go into the 8’s, it
went 8.80 at 154 in 2009, real early, the car had 3,000 miles on it, I think there was
only like 7,000 miles on it now. Progressively got faster and built up and
it’s been a best in the quarter mile an hour with 7.66 at 180, 8th mile it’s been 488 at
145, actually yesterday was a new best. It’s a 430-inch dark aluminum block, got all-pro
heads on it, CIB intake, a pro charger, a F1A94. It makes about 20 pounds which is about maxed
out on that blower, that’s what I have to run. Got a Holley Dominator, the whole EFI on it,
still drive by wire throttle body, RPM transmission in the power glide and the 9 inch everything,
that’s about it, it’s fairly simple in the realm of things, you know it’s not really
too crazy. It went a 119 last weekend and I kind of just
have been playing with it and it went 117 yesterday so I kind of want to get that down
if I get that down into the low teens if I hit a 110 that would be crazy. Rhodes custom auto in Deleware did the 25
chassis on it, and then we pretty much built the rest of the car. February will be 13 years at my job, it’s
been a long road.
