Does that really look like a Taurus to you? Did any of the Taurus cars you had have rear wheel drive V8 platforms? it looks a lot more like a NASCAR chassis. Which may or may not (more not) be a street car. Most street driven cars i see have headlights.

Three notes:

1. cars are teched for safety.
2. only if the car sets a record does it undergo scrutiny to see if it meets the class rules
3. At ECTA, we rely on racers to self police and live with their integrity.

Photo of the car looks pretty stock. Photo is in Woody's group from the last day. But did you actually see the engine? Nothing to say he couldn't have removed FI for a carb or done an engine swap. A gentle approach to the owner asking the question/suggesting the miss classification, perhaps. If you want to protest a record it is too late now but read rule 1.I in the rule book. As revolutionary said, we police our own stuff. If someone "cheats" they are only cheating themselves in reality though I know a record feels good.
