Drag Challenge Big Block VG Valiant on kill! | 528ci Chrysler | 9 Second | Street Machine Magazine |

Hopefully the video gives you a pretty good idea of the level of this car, the paint is absolutely phenomenal and has a subtle pearl accent. Not only does the car deserve every bit of it’s place in Street Machine Mag, there’s nothing tougher than the sound of a Solid Roller Big Block Chrysler rumbling away.

The car definitely isn’t all show, even though it would have no issue competing in any elite pavillion bay at any level of car show… This is a true street car!

Not only that, but Aaron took the VG all the way to the Eastern States to compete in Drag Challenge taking out runner-up in the Tuff Mounts 235 Aspirated class and also claiming the quickest Mopar-powered car.

Check out the awesome write up on that one below:

With the car back in our home town, the opportunity to get some more track time presented itself.

It’s never as easy as it seems getting a high powered radial car down the track, it was definitely a challenging day for Aaron and through no lack of trying on this occasion either. Getting the car ready for Drag Challenge in October this year it was a good opportunity to dial a few things in and work out what changes or upgrades were needed to step it up come October.

With Aaron making adjustments during the day and testing each the car wasn’t going to let him have it easy this time around, he’s already got his shopping list together and the suspension is likely to get a few tweaks in the lead up to October.

We hope you enjoy the sights and sounds of this one, it’s a seriously cool ride!

  1. Your description of this very lovely old Valiant is spot on, fast and class! Thanks for more memories of my childhood cars that I grew up with, just like my mother's RX4 and my father's VC Regal named Gunther and his VF two door named Dimitrios! 👍
