The BlackHawk

Forged by SLP and refined by LEP...Behold! The Black Hawk!! also known as " The Wife " why? because she sucks enough money out of me as it is.

Me, i am a clown, usually making posts based off the cover and not what's written in the book. Filled mostly with sarcasm, missed spelled words, unstructured sentences and childish remarks they are indeed just letters on the computer screen. BUT! for those who know! I have a bit of an obsession for the Firehawks.. I Swear I don't know why that is!

Fully Documented( ), 1995 Firehawk #584 of 671.
385cu.in LT1 force fed by an intercooled rearmount turbo. power numbers: ****ing crazy! ( for me anyway, maybe not so much for those pushing over 600 to the wheels)






Undocumented clones and real firehawks beware.... .....For accountability reasons

Former owner of one of the most powerful firehawks known to man.. 95/584 ..she will be missed and not forgotten.. May her new owner treat her well and not wrap her around a tree

Looks great. I bet your rear tires don't stand a chance.

Just two slow 4 doors.

What has it done in the 1/4 mile? I don't think you've ever said, I know you're not a crazy drag guy but I've always been curious. Your car is one of the sexiest LTs out there.

To one of my favorite buddies across these great United States, I love your Firehawk, she is truely a thing of beauty that makes other cars tremble to sit on or near the same asphalt strip.

The power your Firehawk makes rivals that of the finest built LT1's in the country. I am honored to call you a brother in the Armed forces and the Perfomance community. Now where are the good pics of the wife ???

I'd perfectly happy being a car owner and watching someone driving her down the track to the car's full potential! ... Car owners get paid more too
