Mullis Race Cars making a return?

Got a hot tip yesterday that the Mullis Race Cars brand will be returning late this year with a new owner and location.

Long known for building some of the nicest and smoothest cars out there, this may be a welcome as the "new" dragster market has a considerable back log for new builds.

Stay tuned...

I know. I am not in a hurry but have been looking at some different options. I am anxious to find out who is taking over.

Brian is no longer involved. He remains happy with his current job in Florida. The new owners will be very capable from what I see.

More news to come as things are currently being finalized from what I understand.

I'm not a dragster car--I know Mullis always a great reputation. Is there anything specific that made his cars smoother than others?

Someone in Mullis who hasn't driven a Ray Miller yet, possibly?

I know plenty of people who've driven both, they were both built originally, within an hour of the house.

I went 4.67 in a Ray Miller 15 years ago. Pretty smooth.

I run a crazy busy shop and if i cant get to a customer i still return their call and text,explain my situation and give them the option of waiting or going somewhere else.Its just good business sense.

Will, I thought the same thing until I called my supplier this week to order some tubing. I have never had an answer other than the price and ask if I want it delivered or if i’m picking it up until this week. I was told they were a week and a half out. I guess we’ll see how accurate that is.

Steel, especially 1/2" and 5/8" Cold Roll is about two to three weeks out and it has never been over a day before. The thick wall 3" square tubing we use has doubled in price in four weeks and we tried several other suppliers, same thing. Why is that? Any ideas? Going to cost a lot more to make things from good steel, that is for sure.

Mullis announced yesterday that it would be G&J Perfomance Fabricators along with help from Brian Forrester would be building the new cars. It doesn't say the extent of Brian's help.

Every thing is falling into place now. Hope to be taking orders soon But, We want to be able to give accurate delivery times at the best possible value. Still working on a few "Key" details but, hope to have some pricing out as soon as possible... Stay Tuned! Thanks!
