Jim Clark was a west coast factory sponsored racer from the mid 60s through mid 70s. Jim approached me, and asked if I could recreate his pro stock Demon, as his old car no longer exists. This is the end product, which was built off an old bracket car he had. Jim currently races this car at nostalgia events, and is reliving his glory days from the past. Best run to date 8.95 @151.18 mph.
