race at Rolex Monterely PreReUnion race. Distances are much less than they

full Motorsports Reunion race.

every year since it was fully restored to late 1958 specs in 1982 with
Testa Rossa V12 3 liter engine as installed by von Neumann (and rebuilt by
David McCarthy and Patrick Ottis). Most cars in the class it is racing
against have engines at least 0.8L larger, and disc brakes.

bloody good fun to watch.

JCG Restorations 1968 Camaro -- /BIG MUSCLE
Tucked away in a small industrial park in Oxnard, CA sits JCG Restorations
& Customs, a moderately sized shop that has built some of the best
performing pro-touring cars that we've ever driven. Now generally we don't
focus in on shops, however when the owners of three of our best test cars
start dropping names, we tend to listen. Originally we descended on JCG to
drive Blu Balz, a stunning 1968 Camaro owned by one Karl Dunn.
However since Mother Nature decided to water the Earth that day, we put our
original plans on hold and got shop owner Cris Gonzalez to give us the in's
and out's of what it takes to make a stellar pro-touring car.
