My friend paid $60k for the '06 he ordered. Still hs it and it has under 8,000 miles on it. His wife stopped talking to hi for two weeks when he brought it home. She thought he'd been joking about him placing the order for it. He told her it was an investent. I think he'd be lucking to get $40k for it right now if he tried to sell it.

Personally , my thoughts on the demise of P/ST was the engine, nobody cared, Oh look a truck. If they went with NO2 with the small blocks as a power enhancer, it would have seperated them from any other class as the only one that can use it, Fans know and understand Nitrous, Purging the lines before staging builds excitment, Brings in more manufactures into the fold

It seems that Chevrolet decided not to sponsor the class anymore and NHRA shut it down after they said it was a go for the year and teams had beau coupe time and money invested for the season along with sponsor contracts that they had to give back. The rational was that the class did not really go away, but was folded into Comp. Eliminator which was no longer stand alone. Can you imagine someone giving you a million dollars (back then) in good faith and then you had tell them "I spent your money but the class isn't going to happen". It would haven't ever been resolved except the court case was finally moved out of California where NHRA had a strangle hold on any one who tried to sue them. One thing good that came out of this is that now a major team sponsor also has a contract with NHRA for X many races when they sign up. Only trouble is then NHRA tries to steal the sponsor or pressure them deal all terms of sponsorship with NHRA.

Thanks Roger. So the class had a dedicated sposnor (kind of like what P/S need now). What ws the time window of this all going down? For some reason I just never followed the whole deal. Did NHRA kill the class lie mid-season? Did they now say "the class won't be retruning next season" and finih out the year?

Come on Hemi... Couldn't you get into a stock sheet metal, big tubed Ram with a T/F motor in it?

(Make it a crewcab for Dixon's passengers.)
