  1. Torrey Zaches' Restored M400 Track Monster

    Torrey is the nicest and quietest guy in the WORLD!!!!!
    We're lucky, cuz often, we're not the fastest at building cars and that's the truth. Acutally, we always find something better and out comes the motor, AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!! It's ok, when Torrey's bored, he tracks the 458 and I also saw a Gallardo in our drive way once. Yup, the Noble is still faster, way faster!!!!
    He's got more patience than one of those desert spiders that sit under the sand waiting for a lizard to walk by for ...

    It's obvious that the Grapeman needs no introduction. We all know him as Robert. A humble man that spends all day battling in courts, but dreams of driving during his breaks.

    Robert is the kinda guy that does what he says and says what he does, it's that simple.

  4. Al Pettee's New Build

    This Noble was one of the first to make tons of HP. With the addition of Motons, big meats and two ecu maps (pump and 100 octane), the motor met a slow oiling issue which finally ended his day.
