AMS Standing Mile / Bonneville car project

Moses has been keeping some of the Members of the MLR up to date on our projects here at AMS Performance. I wanted to specifically highlight this one as it holds a special place for me.

This car was brought to us by a customer and close friend of hours Tommy passalaqua. Tommy's EVO was already quite the force to be reckoned with. Making over 600 whp in its earlier trim.

That wasn't enough for Tommy, He wanted to go fast....REALLY fast his goal was to build a car for the Bonneville salt flat races and Texas standing mile here in the state. We had quite the game plan to achieve this. The following are a series of pics of the custom build we are doing for tommy in his quest for 230mph!

First here is how the car was delivered to us











After some initial fabrication and fitment
