Troy Scott’s Opel GT has been around for years and is legendary for what it can do on the strip. That’s not a stretch of the imagination…an Opel GT is the size of most kit cars and looks like it’ll float away in the breeze in the right conditions in stock form, so adding a good-sized V8 and some big, sticky rubber just seemed like a great idea for a race car. And it is…this little howler has been making the rounds, running races in the midwest for a while now. But this year the Opel gained something new. Yeah, the paint scheme is a little different, but take note of the blower…you know, the power-adder sticking through the hood that seems to compose a fifth of the whole damn car. Even from my position on the scaffold at the 660′ mark, there was no mistaking the tiny little car with the big effing blower stacked on it for anything else. And it ran, too…each time it passed, the blower blades wide open, arrow straight, through the end, the Opel slipped through the air with ease. Nothing against the turbo cars, but a gigantic honkin’ blower pulling into the lanes is just awesome, and when that blower appears to be composing 15% of the car’s total weight, all the better!
