John Gifford converted the concours Plymouth show car into Nostalgia Super Stock race trim, and now he gets to drive it down the track-not a bad deal. The car is so subtly modified that we were floored when John told us it's run a best time of 9.67 at 142 mph. As we drooled over the two Holley carbs bolted atop the custom cross-ram intake, John commented that the car runs pretty consistently, regardless of weather. He keeps the fuel pressure around 7.5 psi to keep the carbs' needles-and-seats from blowing out, but the Savoy's fuel system was dead-on from the start. He says it best: "I've been racing a long time, so I knew how to build it right."
