1971 Dodge Demon

The story: Bill Creech grew up in Southern California and was privileged enough to have a hot rod / drag racing dad, be in the absolute pinnacle of nitro funny cars (the early 1970s), and live close enough to OCIR (Orange County International Raceway) at the time the super track of its day and host of the most badass funny car events you ever dreamed of the Manufacturers Meet being the main one. 200 nitro funny cars on the property with 64 qualifying to represent their respective factory teams. This was the time of: Mongoose vs Snake, Jungle Jim vs The Snowman, the Lil Demon vs the Blue Max, The Revellution Demon vs The Chitown Hustler it was a spectacle, it was an event, it sounded like you were going to a monster movie. And when you arrived and walked in the pits you were not disappointed insane paint jobs, wild characters, and loud cars. Add in the brand wars: Dodge vs Chevy, Ford vs Plymouth it became even more crazy and filled with excitement. Everyone was in and everyone went. To Bill these are the critical missing components in drag racing today. Nobody cares about the Matco Tools funny car vs the Peak Antifreeze funny car, one bubble car vs another bubble car boring and fan attendance reflects it. None of those exist in drag racing anymore it has gone corporate and therefore bland and uninteresting. Racers have lost the plot as they are purely focused on winning rather than understanding that without fans, there is no racing at all. With that in mind,Bill set out to create a car that would time warp people straight back to 1972. A loud car that shakes like a Southern California Earthquake, a name and character that make you want to see what it is, a paint-scheme that will keep your eyes glued to it, and burnouts that will make you think he is violating at least a dozen EPA regulations. Bill always loved the lines of the Dodge Demon. Add in that most people collect Dodges not race them, and add in that Demons were only produced for two years combining that with one of my favorite cars Pete Everetts Lil Demon and that became my target. Bill purchased the Demon in Ohio and brought it to California. he began getting it to be more of my style and once he was satisfied with how she ran, he contacted Bill Everett (Petes son) who enthusiastically gave Bill permission to use the Lil Demon namesake. Then he took her to Riverside California to Richard McPeak one of the most well-known hot rod and race car graphics painters of the 70s who just so happened to have painted his dads hot rod / race car (1970 Dodge Charger R/T Magnum Force).nbsp; Taking his input of all of my favorite funny cars, Bill gave Richard a sketch of what he thought it should look like. He gave him a look, and told him to throw that away and just let him do his thing he kept Bills pics of the original funny cars. A week later Lil Demon rolled out of his paint booth in November 2007. Three days later she was drawing massive amounts of attention at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma CA and the attention never left her. The only change I would make to the car would be to remove the modern contingency decals and replace them with 1971 decals (whether the parts are actually on the car or not).The FactsVehicle: 1971 Dodge Demon H Code car.
