Fastest Street Car In America – Tom Bailey’s 217 MPH ’69 Camaro

Those of us who are into drag racing, know that it’s difficult to have an extremely fast car that can be driven on the street AND racetrack. Recently, however, Tom Bailey, from Lake Orion, Michigan, blurred the line between full-race and full-street while competing at Hot Rod Magazine’s Drag Week event this past September. Bailey’s “street” ’69 Camaro ran 6-second quarter mile passes, five consecutive times, earning the title of the Fastest Street Car in America . Bailey’s ’69 Camaro has a composite body and full tube chassis with struts. It runs a massive Steve Morris 615ci BBC with Brodix 14-defgree heads, a brand new Holley Dominator EFI system and a hypercontrol boost controller. With two 94mm Precision turbos, Bailey’s Camaro dynoed at 2,200 hp to the rear wheels! He runs a pro torque converter with a Rossler Turbo 400 trans and a Gear Vendors under/overdrive. “It’s got monster 35-inch tall tires, 3.89 gears and gets a very impressive 12 miles per gallon!,” he says.
