This is a short documentary I made for a class. Using mostly my own found
footage, I give a commentary on "Sleepers" and my own personal experiences
This video was intended to tell a story and be mildly entertaining/funny.

I'm getting messaged like crazy to reveal the mod lists for my cars. This
is a bit difficult to do for the Regal since it almost never had the same

SHO - SHO SHOp catless Ypipe (That's it!!!) (Stock during most of the Races

vs tuned turbo Cobalt at the Track.
Regal: Headers, mild cam, pulley, tune and intake
