MICHAEL SCHENA

HQ MONARO GTS OCT 2016

Street Machine - - Your Stuff -

MICHAEL Schena turned a bas­ket-case Monaro into a cruisin’, show-wor­thy burnout and drag ma­chine. “A panel beater told me straight-up that it would need 3000 hours spent on it,” he says. But be­ing a boil­er­maker and diesel me­chanic by trade, Michael was up for the chal­lenge. While he was work­ing on the body, Johnny Pilla at Pow­er­house En­gines put to­gether a stout 540ci Dart Big M mo­tor topped with a four-bar­rel Pro Sys­tems Dom­i­na­tor. The pack­age makes 785hp and has al­ready seen plenty of ac­tion on the burnout pad, and re­turned a swift 10.3 at Heath­cote.
