DRAG CHALLENGE CONTENDER: TURBO BIG BLOCK HQ HOLDEN RUNS 8.39

POP666 is one of the meanest and wildest nut-job street cars in the country. It bucks hard off the line, loves to lift its nose in the air and owner Harry Haig has to wrestle the thing just to keep it tracking relatively straight every time it hits the strip.

In this video it runs deep into the eights at Heathcote, delivering a seriously impressive best of 8.39@172mph. When it hooks up and doesn’t backflip off the line, POP666 is one quick Q!

The car is a barn-find HQ Premier sedan that’s packing a 510-cube big-block with a Precision Pro Mod turbo, EFI and a air-to-air intercooler, running 20psi of boost. This donk dishes out serious grunt, and it all hits the road through a Powerglide transmission hooked up to a Ford nine-inch rear end. POP666 wears  MT 275 street radials, and she’s been tuned by the folks at Tunnel Vision.

Harry drives the Quey to and from the track every time it races and while he was a late starter in last year's Street Machine Drag Challenge, he completed the whole course from Albury to Heathcote and turned plenty of heads in the process.
