I'm sure the Viper was a
standard non-RS Camaro and I know it was red originally. It had the 200kmph
speedo, but since the car has been heavily modified there is no more tell
tale signs to look for as for it being a Yutivo, we will have to ask John
and rely on his memory. I know he got it out of a junk yard in Angeles City
The cool pictures of the
car in front of the Blue Nile and Neros in Angeles City was taken in 2002.
The bar wanted some promotional pictures of car and driver after I set a V-8
record and was the first V-8 to break into the 10's in the Philippines. The
old 10 sec pass was with the 350 on nitrous at a PDRF event at Harbor Center
The car get a lot of attention because of its history as being from the Philippines and that it has been raced in the Phillipines as well. I first started racing the car in 2000 and raced it until 2004, then I shipped it to the U.S. Back in those days I raced it with a 350 smallblock, now of course it has been swapped with a 440cui smallblock, see specs below..
