She was running like 8s or 9s I think?
I remember that Lori Brower raced BORs (Brower Autobody was an early BOR sponsor) in the 80s in the old Nasty Habit bug that used to belong to Bob Hole. I think she ran like 11s also. 12s for sure!!
Good question, never really thought about it?
This should be in the Powder Puff section !! ;D

Steve and Lori Brower are my parents, I literally grew up at the dragstrip, at the VW drags in particular. This site is like a huge trip through my childhood!
My mother did drive several full bodied cars, including the orange bug that was the original Nasty Habit car, the orange bug later became the dragon lady car. If I remember correctly she dipped in the high 11's in that car. But... I believe she may be the fastest woman in an aircooled VW powered car. We purchased one of the old Pizzo Brothers altereds and ran a turbo motor in it for a while. She ran into the 8.60's with that configuration, although it was at a nostalgia racing even and not a vw event.
