Oh yeah!!! I attended one in Rancho Cordova when the car was all stock and the last two in Pleasonton. My kids love going to them and has become our family weekend getaway. Sounds like we might get more cars at the show too.

Thanks for the compliments guys, I can't wait to hit the track and autocross.....my buddy and I fabricated a cover to cover up the injectors/wires. I added some pics. I think it needs something more to make it standout, tell me what you think? I'm open to ideas.....

I went with the red intake because GM used red intakes on the one year only 1996 LT4 motor, thought it would be unique.

The rear is a 12 bolt from a 71 Camaro. Because of the rear truckarm suspension, it uses a different style of perches. The rear end measures 47" from inner backing plate to inner backing plate and has 12" Wilwood disc brakes with an enternal parking brake. The rear wheels are 17x9.5 inches with the 4.5" back space.To achieve more of a DEEP DISH look, you could have 3-4" back space, but the width of the rear end would change. What we did was pick the wheel/tire combo with the back space, then cut the rear end to make it look the way it does.

With the gears, tire height and T56 trans, the motor turns 2300 RPM at 70 mph......
