2015 PRI Show- Justin “Big Chief” Shearer unveiled his new car- The Crowmod. The same Butler Performance powered engine from his crashed Pontiac, "The Crow".
had a horrific crash in his 1972 Pontiac LeMans drag car during a drag race. As you can see from the pictures, the original Crow was no more. To everyones surprise, the Butler Performance twin turbo 2500 hp engine survived the crash. The drivetrain was extracted and transplanted into his newest creation, a new lighter ride named "Crowmod". The Crowmod is a 1968 Pontiac Firebird featuring the latest and lightest body and chassis available. Here at Butler Performance we are glad to see this custom designed, insanely fast setup take life in his latest creation.
