Another MCF Member Story. Grandfather was a used car dealer for over 60 years and this lucky guy got to test drive some classics.
I guess you'd say that muscle cars run in my blood. My grandfather was a used car dealer for over 60 years, so I got to test drive everything from Mach 1 Mustangs to Challengers and Super Bees. As a teenager in the late 1950's, my mom beat everyone in town (including the rich kid with a Corvette) quarter mile street racing in her big block Bonneville. My earliest memories of my dad include his 1969 GTO and it's awesome performance.
Dad last won a drag race in his Z06 Corvette at age 69.
I'm happy these days pushing the envelope as often as possible in my 2016 Mustang GT (color chosen because of Steve McQueen's Bullitt), even my dad is impressed with the 435 hp and my mom didn't bat an eye recently when I topped 135 mph with her in the passenger seat.
The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is coming in 23 days to the New York auto show. What’s fueling interest in this two-door muscle car variant is the guessing game: how powerful is it? The Demon is the latest strike in the white-hot contested horsepower wars. The battle to go fast is fueled by an online enthusiast community drooling at the thought of delirious numbers that translate to incredible launch speeds once reserved for the drag racing strip.

We've featured Ohio dealer Lebanon Ford before, for the crazy powerful modified Mustangs they sell for reasonable money. Now, the dealership has a Dodge Demon-style ready-to-drag-race Mustang. Lebanon Ford announced today the LFP 10, a $60,000 Mustang GT that promises consistent ten-second quarter-mile times. That's more expensive than Lebanon Ford's $45,000, 1200-hp twin-turbo Mustang, but the LFP 10 comes with lots of upgraded drag racing hardware for your money.

You have to get the timing just right. Executing the perfect drag racing launch is a delicate dance; klutz up the steps, and you're in for embarrassment.
Buckled in to a 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis, I'm not gunning for a world record. I'm just trying not to humiliate myself on my first day at a drag strip. Demon launch procedure feels like it came from a NASA handbook, a series of instructions to be performed in exacting succession. I tap the touchscreen to engage Line Lock, mash the brake pedal, and hold the steering wheel button to lock the front wheels. Next, goose the accelerator, lighting up the rear tires in a ten-second burnout before releasing the button and easing into the staging lights.
