probably the best collection of muscle cars and spare parts we are going to hear of, the Don Fezell collection

On April 13, 2012 during the Four-Wide Nationals at the zMAX Dragway, Don became the first racer ever to run an NHRA Stocker in the 8s, posting an 8.954 ET at 153.88 MPH in his 2008, 5.4-liter AA/S Cobra Jet Mustang.

A racer – both on and off dragstrips – since the mid-Fifties, Fezell had a healthy first-hand appreciation for factory-built drag cars of the Sixties after losing to the likes of Grumpy Jenkins. So in 1975 when he started his car collection, he decided to focus on some of the best high-performance machines Detroit built.

Four Z11s of the 57 ever made, are in Fezell’s collection, plus three factory Cobra Jet lightweight Mustangs, a couple lightweight Mopars, a Ford Thunderbolt, and a Super Duty Pontiac.

And then there’s the muscle cars – a Hemi ‘Cuda, an R-code Fairlane 500, and a Camaro RS/SS convertible among them.
