Watch this video for answers to all your questions (songs, car mods,
setups, etc..) along with bonus footage and updates.
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.
No one in this film thinks they drive the fastest car on the planet. We are
all aware of our limitations.
Try to enjoy it :)
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
setup on it for more than a few weeks! Anyway I'll try my best!
Z34 - Intake and chip. Stock at the time of the Iroc-Z race.
SHO - SHO SHOp catless Ypipe (That's it!!!) (Stock during most of the Races
in this Video)
vs tuned turbo Cobalt at the Track.
Regal: Headers, mild cam, pulley, tune and intake
Vs stock G8. Regal: same mods as above
11.9 @ 112 in the 1/4 on slicks with some c16 race gas mixed in, m90 blower
Vs full bolt on, gears, tuned 2011 Mustang v6. Regal: TVS swap with
stock TVS pulley. 7psi of Boost.
vs full bolt on, 3.55 gears, tuned 1998 Cobra. Regal: same setup as vs the
Vs 330whp low 12 second Vortech supercharged 2002 Mustang GT. Regal: TVS swap + 2.8''
pulley (14psi) and ethanol.
374whp with same mods as vs the blown GT
As always the Regal had stock heads and never had an Intercooler!
Thanks for all the comments!

midweststreetcars / 405 is one of the a best sleepers out there, this beat
up old farm truck really puts down the power with it's Nitrous assisted big block, running into the 10's
at the track, and spanking cars on the street! Check out the wheelies it
pulls off with some help from PIMP JUICE (his creation)

Dodge Grand Caravan Long-term Review (Van Culture) - Kelley Blue Book
FOR MORE CAR VIDEOS & REVIEWS CHECK OUT
Dodge Caravan Minivan. It wasn't so long ago that people cringed when
confronted with the fashion of the 1970's. But with the Disco Decade nearly
40 years in the rearview mirror, the era is experiencing its inevitable
irony-driven comeback. So when the Dodge Grand Caravan joined Kelley Blue
Book's long-term test fleet it was greeted with a bit more enthusiasm than
one might expect of a minivan. That enthusiasm, due largely to a wealth of
optional equipment, also reflected the hope that the Dodge Grand Caravan
might act as a portal to another time when custom vans were for the cool
kids and not just angry loners. Sure the Grand Caravan does a fine job
hauling children to ballet or grow-mulch home from the store, but it
performs equally well as an impromptu lounge or for blasting Lynyrd Skynyrd
while cruising down the highway with your old lady. Can modern minivans
offer enough retro-fabulous mojo to fill the void left by the custom van
fad of the 1970's? It's a question that deserves an answer and one which
kbb.com's Micah Muzio explores in the following video.

1989 Dodge Turbo Caravan beats a Viper at the Mission street legals, Sep16/11
Fully loaded van with a/c, interior, full Exhaust and auto, 3700 lbs with me in it, GT35R
turbo, 2.5L 4 cylinder with a TIII 16
valve DOHC head.
Playing at the Street Legals, just fixed the trans, no tuning, so trying to
tune tonight. Ran a 14.0@96 mph.
Viper guy was NOT happy, almost got to race him again but he dodged the
bullet. Later on, wouldn't even look at my direction, lol.
Sleeper minivan beats riced Honda Civic on track
Because I get it a lot, yes, this was at PIR.
Just shows that a sleeper car can still put a Honda in it's place. This
Plymouth minivan was one of the fastest cars on the track finishing a
quarter mile at 123.42 MPH. Definitely not an easy task! Either way, it's
always fun to watch some fancy Honda get his ass handed to him on a
