“This car was raced in the late 70’s and 80’s the last race it completed was in 1990. Glenn Emery built this car as one of the first 4WD 4 wheel independent suspension rear engine vehicle. It has a Buick 215 V8 mated to a Turbo 350 transmission with a B&M shifter. There is a Casal V-drive to get the driveline turned the correct direction mated with a corvette rear pumpkin. The car is rock solid and has a solid start on the restoration. The car is currently street legal and runs, get in it and go have fun. I’m not entirely sure how much travel this car has, but it’s a lot. It can take 2-3 ft whoops at any speed.

My uncle was in the pit crew back in the day when Glenn Emery owned the car. He sold the car to Carl Cook and we tracked the car down a few years ago and found it sitting in a barn. We got it running again and started the restoration. Mickey Thompson has driven and raced this car a few times as well, it is a true timepiece of off road racing. The old pictures have Mickey Thompson in the drivers seat. Life got in the way and we haven’t used it as much as we wanted and it is sitting more than it gets used.
