You just want a Camaro. A Camaro that is fast and that doesn't break every other day!!!!!!!!!!You wouldn't know what to do with it when you turn the key and it actually starts.

Not me... I was the last one to leave the tower.

I did see the winner do a burnout while pulling his Camaro. Lets see Robert do that with his new truck.

First, props on that ^

Next, I am really pushing to get to the fest this year, and the Camaro is almost sorted. But I had some things to do with the truck, and I don't if they'll get done. Still waiting on the compound piping kit...

Cool and good luck....
I unfortunately unless something major changes wont be at the Fest this year.... I'll be floating away on a rig.... We are taking our rig to Nicaragua, can you say hot.... and i'm 99% positive my crew will be on it for the tow....

If something changes and I am able to make it, it'll be without the car.... We are starting over at ground zero with the turbo kit and there is no way it'll be finished by then.... Exhaust manifolds, intake manifold, all the plumbing, the intercooler tanks etc....

Our goal is to have it properly built and ready to go for the Mile in October.... Then I'll show Jaime the difference between quick and fast.... nine seconds is quick.... 20 seconds is Fast as hell...
