Driving Heavy Metal

Ford Shelby Heavy Metal

Owned, operated and driven by Frank Stagnaro, this Ford Shelby Mustang GT350 marvel is known to the world as “Heavy Metal.” This is powered by a dry sump Full Aluminum 310 Motor matched with a Jerico Transmission. Frank and Mike developed the suspension using JRi Shocks. We have a custom 13” rotor gripped by a 6 piston Superlite caliper front and a 4 piston caliper setup in the rear helping those Hoosier Racing Tires stop almost as fast as it can take off. This is by no means an ordinary Ford Mustang.

Many have had their hands wrapped around this famous steering wheel including Mike and Brianne Maier, Mary Pozzi, Barbara L. Ogg, Elizabeth Berger and even Frank himself. They have collectively brought in 14 Sports Car Club of America Championships. Heavy Metal has not missed a season since 1969 with care and dedication of Mike Maier Inc. — at Camarillo Airport.
