A converted street car, Billy's GT features an NBS Performance and Fabrication's 25.5C chassis, including a funny car-style 'cage. He and his brother, Rob, performed the car's final assembly, taking every step to ensure a clean install of all electronic components and mechanical devices, which Billy says gets compliments from his racing peers-and us, too. He views a plethora of Auto Meter gauges from the comforts of a JAZ Products racing seat while he clicks the CRT Transmissions-built Powerglide into high gear via a B&M Pro Stick shifter.

Besides the people and shops we've already told you about, Billy (right) wants to thank Wayne Young from Young's Perfor-mance, CRT Transmis-sions, Innovative Racing, PTC converters, Real Speed Racing, Aerospace Com-ponents, Rick Garry, Frank Inturrisi, and Earl Whoolery. "I would also like to thank Laurie Allegretto for always getting it done, my brother Rob [left] for all the late nights and hard work, and last but not least, my supportive wife, Patty," Billy says. With the help of all these people and manufacturers, Billy hopes to take his wild ride into the seven-second zone, into the thick of Super Street Outlaw's 10-Inch-Tire Freak Show.
