Fbodywarehouse is proud to sponsor David Cowan and his 1978 Firebird "Beat The Heat" Drag Car.
We at Fbodywarehouse are firm believers in not spending money hand over fist to be seen on TV
shows and high-end televised "auction" programs. While it is great exposure, it simply drives
up the price of the products to the consumer. We leave that to the huge, impersonal restoration
When we put our company name on a car or program, we are sure that program and driver will uphold
the ethical standards we believe in and also provide the public a valuable educational service.
David Cowan is a police officer for the Chattanooga Police Department. Fbodywarehouse and the
Chattanooga Meth Task Force are the primary sponsors of this car. The "Beat The Heat" program
is much more than a great time at the drag strip. David takes the car to several area schools
and community functions not only to remind kids to keep the racing "off the streets" and at the
track but also to remind them of the dangers of alcohol and drugs. The entire program is geared
to win at the track and to make our kids “winners” by starting and staying drug and alcohol free.
Fbodywarehouse has been proud to donate many of the factory replacement and restoration products
you see on the car! From sheet metal, weather seals, and clip and fastener kits to the entire roof,
fenders, and doors of this car, we have been instrumental in providing the parts and accessories
needed to make this a “Cop Car” that will not only catch you but beat you down the track!
We are proud to extend our continued support to David "Lead Foot" Cowan and Marty "The man who makes
her go fast!" Dunn and the 2008 Campaign!
