In 1987 Daniel Gottlieb commisioned Larry Mollicone to build a specialized engine for a stock 1969 Camaro that could reach speeds in excess of 200mph. The car was dubbed Big Red and debuted at La Carrera Open Road Race. Driven by Daniel's son, Richard Gottlieb, BR reached speeds above 140mph before the steering knuckle broke, sending BR off the road and totaling the car in the process. After the crash BR was rebuilt and entered races such as; The Silver State Classic, Texas Mile Virginia City Hill Climb, Movaje Mile, and multiple others. Currently Big Red's top speed is 234.2 mph, which was acheived at the Mojave Magnum in 2012, on the 1.5 mile run.
