    Twin Eaton Supercharged '88 bird

    Check out these 6 pics of (what used to be a turbo coupe) a twin roots charged 351 in an '88 bird. Very cool.

    This is real, by the way. It's not photoshoped.

    I believe the guys name was Mike Sitar but not positve. He worked for Eaton at one time; he still might actually. He used to race it at Numidia raceway here in NE PA a few years back.

    That is the guy, but that was an '86 or previous twin turbo, not the '88 twin supercharged.

    After I found this video, I realized that I have heard of his work. He is the brother of my neighbors friend...sounds extended I know, Last I spoke to Mike's brother, he still works at Eaton Magnuson.

    Do they still have the plant in Roxboro? I used to deliver microfilm and such to them, when I was a courier back in the mid 90s.
