The known history of the car begins in 1982 when Ray Dupont acquired the car. Ray had been lucky enough to find a very low mileage, original paint, Copo Camaro that had been sold new at Scuncio. Ray wanted to go racing, so, he proceeded to “improve” upon the already awesome car. A pretty radical big block with, at times, a dual quad tunnel ram was installed. The original block was put in the corner. He added a Jericho trans, some Summers Bros. axles, a little suspension work, and it was off to the races. On 10” slicks the car ran consistent 10:50 times. After twenty years of fun, but, very few miles, Ray had had the car repainted, and, the motor rebuilt, and, it was time to go to the next owner. Kevin Hand bought the car, and, sold it to Mike Guarise. Over the next year Mike put the car back to a more stock appearance, and, as luck would have it, had no room for the car. Having looked patiently for a supercar, Mike’s friend Dave Steinberg had followed the progress on the car, and, “just had to have it” when it was ready. Dave’s car still retains all of its original body panels and interior, and, now has a total of 10,400 miles. Dave has now had the original engine rebuilt, and, plans to install that, along with a correct M21, in the near future. On the other hand, maybe Dave can be convinced to leave it the way it is for SCR 8, and, blast a few 11.0 runs!

Great car...any high performance car in black is too cool!

I love the Scuncio dealer "plate" on the back with the California black license plate circa 1966...
