June 2010 Flashback TR7 runs 119.894mph at Maxton, besting previous best by 8mph!

In our first Saturday Morning run at the ECTA Maxton June event,  our hot rod 2 liter TR7 ran 119.894 mph on the ECTA’s one mile course. The new full race Tr7 engine bested our previous best of 111.715mph by over 8mph. I short shifted the engine and was easy on the throttle through the gears… hopes were high that we could tune the car into the high 120’s. We made a quick driver change and put Tony Chiles behind the wheel. Amazingly, the car slowed to 105mph. Tony diagnosed an engine bearing failure and our weekend focus turned to our “J” Gas Crosley Pickup.  Read More →

1951 Crosley Dairy Delivery… A National Champion

I purchased this vehicle as a rolling hulk back in 2006 and have invested over 2.5 years in complete rebuild by Crosley Master Tim Freshley into a Race Quality / Show Quality truck.  This is definitely a one-of-a-kind vehicle. The photo above was taken at the Crosley Nationals on July 11, 2009, exactly one week after the vehicle was completed. In that this Crosley spent most of its first life as a Dairy Delivery vehicle, we entered it in the Commercial Vehicles class, where it won it’s first National title. My Crosley truck is shown here nearly complete in January 2009 in front of Tim Freshley’s Randolph, Ohio shop.  Read More →

1966 Triumph TR4A Surrey Top

In our shop undergoing a complete cosmetic and mechanical restoration is this 1966 Triumph TR4A. Equipped with Surrey Top, Wire Wheels and Overdrive Transmission this will be a very desirable sports car. Look for a completion date of Spring 2015! We found this highly optioned TR4A languishing in a suburban St. Louis garage in July of 2013 where it had been resting for over 20 years. After a deal was struck with the previous owner we began our standard British Sports Car 4 Step revival process: STEP 1: Get it Running STEP 2: Restore and detail the engine bay STEP 3: Repair everything that needs... (more...)

2011 Chevrolet Camaro SS Offered FOR SALE is my 2011 Chevrolet Camaro 1SS equipped with the 426 HP 6.2 liter LS3 engine and 6-speed manual transmission.

I have the plastic off of the seats, the plastic wrap from the carpeting, the window sticker, and every piece of delivery... (more...)

1975 Porsche 914 2.0

The latest project to arrive at the Flashback Racing garage is this 1975 Porsche 914 2.0. The previous owner had finally given up on trying to make the repairs that this mid engine German roadster needed. We found it happily running along on 3 cylinders with little or no compression in the fourth chamber. Time for a complete mechanical rebuild. While we are into the car that far we will add a fresh coat of paint and look to have a road ready 914 in the spring of 2015. Here is how the project is coming along: June 21: We acquired the Porsche and took the following photographs. June 28: The... (more...)
