Jeremy Bonnett’s Chopped and Channeled Drag Week ‘29 Pontiac

Gear Vendors Drag Week Powered By Dodge brings all types of people and all types of cars (and trucks!) together with a single goal in mind: finishing. One of those people crazy enough to try surviving the torture is Jeremy Bonnet from Litchfield, Ohio. He and his crew chief, his 11-year-old son Ian, decided to bring their family built, 1929 Pontiac sedan to complete Drag Week in 2016.

Jeremy has been a motorhead all his life, working alongside his father, and now with his own kids the family has been building, driving and racing cars all from the home shop for years. The 1929 they brought to Drag Week is a true family affair and built mostly from recycled parts and pieces — from the frame to the roof.

The pre-war sedan is a true street car after logging thousands of miles before and after Drag Week. In the engine bay lurks a 414ci small block that is topped with a Dyers 6-71 blower, sending the power to the rear through a TH400 before putting the power to the tires thanks to a Ford diff. So far the car has managed a  9.64 at 141mph. For his first Drag Week that is a pretty good number, especially with an 11-year-old crew chief! (I think that kid is going places!)

Jeremy was thrilled that he got to spend the week with his son as he couldn’t have asked for a better crew chief and co-pilot for the journey, meeting all the fellow Drag Weekers and seeing rural America from the driver seat of classic American car. Jeremy hopes he can get the car into the 8’s on DW next year and have an even better time with the little sedan.

He would like to thank Mountain Motors, Quick Performance, Dyers blowers for all the help and support with the car and of course his family who makes everything he does possible.
