KIRSTEN

Being the backup girl for a Nostalgia Funny Car is what dragged me into the colourful world of dragracing back in 2011. It didn’t take really long before I realized I definitely wanted to race myself. In 2013 SuzyQ entered my life and has become a big part of it ever since.

Nowadays I drive and wrench, backing up cars has become something I occasionally do for fun. Having grease up my elbows and black fingernails has proven to be so much more satisfying to me than running around in short skirts and high heeled boots.

My love for Mopar and especially the E-body Barracuda (1970-1974) has always been guiding for my weapon of choice at the track. It’s absolutely true: Mopar or no car!

Suzy Q Dragracing

Last week I already posted an update about the work on SuzyQ on Instagram, but somehow Facebook slipped my mind ๐Ÿ˜… Better late than never, here we go for part 2๏ธโƒฃ

After the big cutting and TIG welding work on the chassis, it was time to move on to the interior. SuzyQ always had a nice aluminium sheet metal interior and I really wanted to keep her that way.

Due to the different angle of the new rear clip, many aluminium panels didn't fit anymore. But this wasn't a problem at all, since Henk's Customs & Restoration worked his magic and made beautiful new ones. The sheet metal work isn't finished yet, so you'll see more of this in update number 3๏ธโƒฃ

What do you think of these aluminium panels? I absolutely love them! ๐Ÿ˜

KIRSTEN

After getting involved with dragracing as a back up girl in 2011, I quickly realized I wanted to be a driver instead. In 2013 SuzyQ entered my life and has become a great part of it ever since.

Throughout the seasons I also started to learn everything I can about the mechanical aspect of racing on and off the track, besides my driving duties. Grease up to my elbows and black fingernails have become a rather common state of appearance.

My love for Mopar and especially the E-body Barracuda (1970-1974) has always been guiding for my weapon of choice at the track. It’s absolutely true: Mopar or no car!
