Bad Penny Camaro at Bowler Transmissions annual
We ran our Camaro Performers '68 project car called Bad Penny at Bowler Transmission's annual event. This was a full blown SCCA autocross and the Camaro ended up turning in the fastest time of the day with a 46.86 time. We were running on Toyo R888 tires, God I love these tires.... Great event and it was worth flying to IL all the way from CA.
