When someone asks you what hard work and dedication get you in this life,
You tell them; "It gets you EVERYTHING!"
Phillip Flower has been dreaming of drag racing for ages.
He gets a decent job fixing heavy equipment, and carefully saves the money to buy "The car."
We here at Wannabe Racing would like to congratulate Phillip.
This has been a great car for us for seven years.
We hope it runs that well for seven more!

Brand new anodized Centerline 'Convo Pro' Wheels

The Caddy was originally owned by Wannabe Buzzz, it was originally run in 2001 with a borrowed engine from his dad. Fortunately, Buzzz put some old used pieces together and made a pretty good engine, and is currently running with Jessica, a great little engine, but unfortunately, smoked the pistons out of it on the last pass. We will have to wait and see what Phillip does to the car.
He is currently drawing up possible future paint schemes.
