Anyone know about this truck?

I was watchin a rerun of the pinks all out from Phoenix tonight and noticed a truck that caught my eye. Wonder if anyone here knows anything about it they'd like to share??

It was a purple or dark blue early 70's F100 that was elimnated in the first round of the 16 car field. Owner stated that it ran 9.20's w/o the spray, and 8.80's w. It had a Procharger and what looked like a big ford......Anyone know more about it??

He also stated it weighed 4100lbs......I have to know more!! :lol: :lol:

I watched that episode the other night also and have been trying to find out something about that truck. Just can't seem to come up with anything. Mine weighs in at 3820 pounds w/o driver and runs 11's so he has to be making a lot of power. Starts researching truck again...

Belongs to Earl Schexnayder, pronounced like (shake-snider), He has a shop in Lafayette, La. Very nice and very fast for 4000#+ truck.

If it ain't broke, you can't fix it no matter how hard you try!
