Steve’s Restoration steel body. The Marianis wanted to enter it in the Street Racing Class so the car had to be built to look like a road car. It is raced in two different classes with either fenders on or off. Full custom made chassis and a purpose built billet steel front tube axle allowed Troy to stretch the wheelbase. Custom-made headlights to meet the rules and also perform for the speed necessities. Troy always wanted to build another salt car that equaled the quality of Blowfish. The aerodynamics were wind tunnel tuned at Chrysler. It has Air Ride suspension and Billet Specialty Wheels. One unique build aspect is the upper induction system and the EFI. Inside of the the throttle bodies are four injectors that wet out the blades so that it works like a carburetor which gives good fuel charge but with the control of the EFI.
