This marked the beginning of a long-lasting sponsorship between Warren Johnson and General Motors Corporation. Warren Johnson was the first NHRA Pro Stock driver to break the 180 mph barrier, 190 mph barrier (Firenza, September '86) and the 200 mph barrier (Pontiac Firebird). The Olds Firenza was also used at the beginning of the Pro Stock racecar wind tunnel testing era that is now an integral part of all professional automobile racing. As Warren Johnson remembers, three Ness chassis Olds Firenzas were built for the early 1987 NHRA Pro Stock racing season. Two identical cars were ordered by Warren Johnson. This 1987 Ness Olds Firenza is one of the two originally ordered and the only one known to still exist. It has been restored to original condition with a genuine Warren Johnson engine and drivetrain as Warren raced in 1987. This Firenza still has all of the original chassis components as recalled by Warren Johnson. It includes rear end assembly, rear coilover shocks and springs, front struts and springs, steering rack and brakes. Every effort has been made to restore the body and chassis to the same exacting detail as it was in 1987. Each part on this car, if not still the original part, was restored with attention to detail overseen by Warren Johnson himself. This car has many items Warren custom-built just for the Firenza. No restoration expense has been spared. An international search was conducted to acquire the few missing 1987 parts to make this car a reality. The repainting and application of graphics are a combination of vinyl and paint, as was the case when Warren Johnson raced his 1987 Firenza. Warren Johnson's signature will be on the rear wing of the car. A photo opportunity with the new owner and Warren Johnson will be available should the winning bidder so desire. "We have lost track of many of these now famous race cars from that era. We never expected any of them to turn into the treasures that they have become. This Olds Firenza could possibly be the most correct rendition of a vintage NHRA Pro Stock car available for auction to date." - Warren Johnson *SOLD ON BILL OF SALE ONLY*
