True Street/Ennis '04 There were 82 cars that finished the MM&FF/Tremec True Street tour and all three drag passes, making it one of the biggest, most competitive fields in recent history.
One of the favorites was famed Outlaw racer Mike Murillo, whose new street car sported a mild turbocharged powerplant along with a squirt of the giggle gas. His first two passes were in the nines, but on the third run the tech officials realized he hadn't been running with the required fire pants and he was disqualified.
John Bryant held off bracket magnate Owen Spry and his familiar orange notchback for the top honors in the class, while Matt Monroe, Brian Warwas, Rance Reynolds, Larry Drozo, Lloyd Turner, and Tim Withers cleaned up in the other classes. A.J. Zabojnik of Rowlett, Texas, took home the coveted MM&FF Editor's Choice award with his '93 LX coupe. The twin-turbocharged, 331ci Stang sported shaved door handles, a Jerico four-speed gearbox, and an air-to-water intercooler. - Steve Baur
