TX2K13 "The Movie" Streets of Houston, Texas drag racing 2013 Full Event
FULL EVENT: TX2K13 "The Movie" Streets of Houston, Texas & Lonestar
Motorsports Park drag racing 2013! Follow Aries Xecutioner filming on his
first 3,200 mile round trip epic solo road trip to the city of Houston,
Texas to see the racing action for the T2K13 Supra Nationals held in its
13th edition. Driving a total beater at basically the last minute and not
knowing a single person in the car scene from there, I showed up with my
cameras just to catch what I could and feel this video is a good
representation of what anyone in the United States driving from far away
would encounter and see... I saw Mullets Twin turbo Underground Racing Lamborghini Gallardo
Superleggera in my first hour in town, saw packs of Lamborghini Aventadors
jockey through the streets of Houston, saw some of the baddest, fastest
street cars I have ever seen in one place at the Omni Hotel parking garage
in West Houston. Every single Corvette and Dodge Viper had Boost whether turbo or Supercharger. Every car had drag radial tires, Boosted engines and GoPro cameras
mounted all over the cars driving around town. I saw some crazy burnout
madness and turbocharged action all
weekend at the drag strip at Lonestar Motorsports Park and Hennessey
Performance in Sealy, Texas. It was an awesome journey I intend to make
again with a faster vehicle and
more cameras! Hope you enjoy this video and definitely take at look at

off the ground so instincts kicked in.

.The Chevrolet Vega is a subcompact automobile produced by the Chevrolet
division of General Motors from 1970 to 1977. Named after the star Vega,
GM's first U.S. mini-car was produced in two-door hatchback, notchback,
wagon, and panel delivery body styles all featuring an inline four-cylinder
engine with a lightweight, aluminum alloy cylinder block.
Initially well-received by buyers and the motoring press, the car sold well
against the AMC Gremlin and Ford Pinto subcompacts and imports including
Toyota, Datsun and Volkswagen. By 1974 it was among the top ten
best-selling American cars.
The Cosworth Vega, a short-lived limited-production performance model with
a reduced-displacement but more powerful all-aluminum inline four-cylinder
engine, was introduced in March 1975.
In early Vegas, engine problems and fender corrosion harmed GM's reputation
for build quality. The faults were remedied by recalls and design
upgrades. A three-year sales decline led to the car's cancellation at the
end of the 1977 model year
The Vega was conceived in 1968 to utilize newly developed all-aluminum
die-cast engine block technology -- the first sand-cast aluminum blocks had
preceded the decision to build the car by two years. A relatively large
displacement engine with good low- speed torque was decided on. gear ratios for low engine rpm
would achieve economy. Engine testing totalled 6,000,000 miles. The
pre-test version was installed in a Fiat 124 sedan for development of the
aluminum block, while several 1968 Opel sedans were used for drive train
Chevrolet instituted a new management program, the car line management
technique, which made it possible to produce the all-new car in two years.
The chief vehicle engineer had overall charge of the program. 50 engineers,
dedicated to the design of the entire car, were divided into groups: body,
power train, chassis design, product assurance, and pleasability. The
latter would check continuously on the vehicles on the assembly line, with
computers in another program monitoring quality control of every vehicle
built. Fisher Body engineers and draftsmen moved in with the Vega
In October 1968, there was one body style (the "11" style notchback sedan),
one engine, one transmission (MB1 Torque-Drive manually shifted two-speed
automatic), one base trim level, a bench seat, molded rubber floor
covering, no glove box or headliner and no air-conditioning (ventilation
was through the upper dash from the wiper plenum). As the program went into
development, the market changed, as did the product.
December 1968: Hatchback, wagon, and panel delivery styles added; also
floor-level ventilation, and an optional performance engine ("L-11"
two-barrel) which, predicted as 20% of production, accounted for 75%.
Bucket seats were standard. Hatchback and station wagon received carpeting
and headliners. Optional Air conditioning, predicted as 10% of production,
rose to 45%.
February 1969: Opel three- and four-speed transmissions (three-speed
standard, others optional); Powerglide also added (now four transmissions);
mechanical fuel pump replaced by in-tank electric pump; power steering
option; base "11" style Notchback trim upgraded to match Hatchback and
Wagon carpet and headliner.
April 1969: Gauge-pack cluster, HD suspension, wide tires; adjustable seat
back (45% of production); bumpers restyled, lower valance panels added;
swing-out quarter window option (10% of production).
July 1969: Electrically heated backlite option (10% of production); "GT"
package, $325.00 extra (35% of production); bright window-frame and roof
drip moldings added to Hatchback and Wagon.
This is essentially how the car launched as a 1971 model. Production began
on June 26, 1970. After the National GM strike (September to November 1970)
ended, bright roof drip moldings were added to base "11" notchback, with
moldings sent to dealers to update units already in the field.
Cars magazine said in 1974: "Chevrolet paid a price for its rush to
introduce the car with other 1971 models. Tests which should have been at
the proving grounds were performed by customers, necessitating numerous
piecemeal "fixes" by dealers. Chevrolet's "bright star", received an
enduring black eye despite a continuing development program which
eventually alleviated most of these initial shortcomings
2011 Bakersfield March Meet Tony Noto Grumpy's Toy Crash
Real bummer this car crashed. Tony Noto in his 1974 Grumpy's Toy Vega Pro
Stock replica. This was hands down my favorite car at the March Meet. My
dad had a Popular Hot Rodding centerfold of this car in my room when I was
a kid. Let's hope Tony will rebuild...I want to see more Nostalgia Pro
Stock cars like this one with the vintage wheels and dry hops (something
you don't see anymore).
I hope everyone likes my little Diamond P replay tribute.
