Despite the fact that they are looking extremely potent and powerful, one of the numerous reasons why we love the American muscle cars is because of those highly modified examples that we get to see rocking and rolling at various drag strip races, where we see them setting the strip on fire and achieving outstanding results. And the following 1985 Chevy Camaro that you are going to see in the following video clip that we have prepared for you today, is a great proof of that!

As you could have read in the title, what we have here is a real beast of a Detroit muscle, heavily modified specimen of the 1985 Chevy Camaro, which belongs to a guy named Mike Wenzler, powered by a Nitrous fed Iron Block BBC. The video below is from this year`s Hot Rod Drag Week, where he was competing in the Unlimited Class, and he managed to finish second, having an average pass of 7.67 seconds at 178.76 mph, during those 5 days of competing.

However, the following clip is showing us this ’85 Camaro beast`s fastest pass of 7.62 second at 178. 76 mph, and I think that you are going to enjoy watching it rocking out the strip and leaving the competitor from the other lane way back in the rearview mirror! So check it out and enjoy the show!
