To think that this car was built by an average guy and his friends in a garage is mind blowing. It’s pro level from top to bottom, it’s amazingly well sorted, and it kicks ass in a straight line AND on an autocross course. This is owner/builder Bob Bertelsen’s third award winning car. Each build […]

This 1980 Grand Prix LJ has been modified with a 400 CID Pontiac V-8 with #62 heads, Edelbrock Performer […]

While the light weight Chevy Vega gained popularity with the drag racing crowd, it’s cousin the Astre, didn’t get the same respect. That’s fine I guess. It just makes them more rare and unique now.
