Super Chevy Show

This past weekend was the Super Chevy Show at Bandimere Speedway.  Some of the top Outlaw class drag cars from around the country came out to the show to see who was the fastest.  Chuck of Finishline Performance doesn’t have the carbon fiber bodies of some of the top racers, but was just hoping to get a time under 8 seconds in the quarter-mile.  Chuck didn’t quite meet that goal, but ran a personal best this weekend at just over 8 seconds and at a speed over 170 mph!

The guys at Finishline finally have a flash down of the final run and should be able to tweak enough to get under 8 seconds this coming weekend’s Outlaw class race.  Chuck’s looking forward to finally breaking the 8 second barrier.  Here are a couple of images from his run.

A reasonable 8.0 second final run of the day.

I thought today however I would show you some highlights of the amazing classic Chevy’s (and other GM products) at the show. There were just some beautiful cars that brought back a lot of memories of when I was growing up. I remember driving around in my dad’s ’58 Olds and ’62 Corvair and my cousin with a glove box full of tickets in his Red Impala SS. These are cars you just don’t see on the road much anymore.

At The Track

Yesterday I took you inside Finish Line Automotive and Performance for an automotive performance tuning session on the dyno.  Today I’m taking you out to Bandimere Speedway for some racing action. Proof is in the pudding when you can take what you have done in the shop and then produce results at the track.  Greg and Jonny’s cars are always the top performing cars at the track.
