September's Featured Ride: Brain Parmenter's 1986 IROC
Brian Purchased this car in May of 96 from the second owner to replace an 89 LX Mustang. The IROC came well equipped with 99 option codes attached to it. In the summer of 97, she received an 87 IROC 350 and after some modifications and experience did a best 1/4 mile of 13.009 @ 102.78 at Orlando Speedway.
After an ill fated 355, broken valve springs and spun bearings, the IROC was due for a 383 that turned out to have problems of it's own. Combine School and multiple engine and trans problems she took a back seat for a little while.
After much trial, error, time and money, this IROC is on the road again with a fresh 383, Mini-Ram intake, CC306 camshaft and a newly rebuilt 700R4. The IROC also sports a modified GM 12 bolt rear with 3.73 gears, an 8 point weld in roll cage and a host of other mods that are sure to put this car in the "WOW" category if you ever get a chance to ride in it. Brian doesn't have any time slips with all the new stuff as of yet but I'm sure those will be coming soon and will be impressive to say the least.
Brain says she still needs some work and most notably tires that don't "bake off" as he put it once. Even so, this is still an impressive car with a lot of time and hard work put into it. Congrats on September featured ride Brian.
