After a few weeks of chasing an electrical demon, we were finally able to get the car stable enough to take it out and play. The car is a 1985 Shelby Charger with an upgraded A555 Transaxle. 10 pounds of Boost. Special thanks go to the guys at turbododge.com and a special thanks to NAJ from turbododge.com for all the help.
The 1986/1987 Shelby GLHS vehicles
Kazzer introduces the long overlooked low budget performance sports cars
from Caroll Shelbys Chrysler turbo days,
the 1986 Shelby GLHS (sedan) and the 1987 Shelby GLHS (coupe)
These weren't just Shelby stickered up Chryslers, the GLHS series of cars
were taken to Shelbys Whittier CA skunkworks facility where the performance
was bumped up all around and limited editions were made..
1986 GLHS's = 500 total
1987 GLHS's - 1,000 total
This is a tribute video I made about the 1980's turbo Dodges. The video is also under my
StreetFire account (85CharGLHS) if you'd rather watch it there. I hope you

GLHS Shelby Charger #742 of 1000 made
I drove this car today, and let me tell you, this is one of the most
under-rated cars every made. What a blast it was winding 2nd and 3rd gear
out! Make you wonder why they only made 1000.

I pointed out a scuff line on the driver's window tint that was caused by
the inside felt window guide. It didn't scratch the glass. The aftermarket
tint is applied on the driver-side windows, the passenger-side windows and
the rear hatch. It is not too dark, has good visibility at night, and no
wrinkle spots or sun fading. This is a good quality tint and appears to be
professionally installed. No rust under the doors, and the door hinge pins
are very secure. The door weatherstrip has come loose for about 2 feet on
the bottom of the driver's door. It is intact, not damaged and can possibly
be glued back on or completely replaced if desired. Carpets are 95% clean,
no missing patches or ripped piles. Just one small stain that appear to be
from boots, and can probably be cleaned using a good carpet cleaner. I
always used the original Mopar floor mats, which are in real good condition
and are included. Clean non-smoking interior. Seats are 95% and work as
they should, just like everything else. I had seat covers on them since Day
2. Momo leather shift knob is 98% and the leather wrapped steering wheel is
95%. Only 3 small surface scuffs on the wheel, but both the steering wheel
and the shift knob are nice and black with no dry rot whatsoever. I
replaced the original radio for a Chrysler Infinity from a 1989 Lebaron turbo 2.5, and it was a simple swap. Same
connectors I believe. It sounds so much better than stock, but I will also
include the stock radio with the sale. Previous owner had an expensive
stereo in it which he removed before selling it to me. You will see Dynamat
on the trunk floor and spare wheel compartment because he had a speaker
back there. Even the glovebox door strap is intact! The AutoMeter Boost gauge will stay with the car and works
excellent. The needle does not flutter since I think it is a liquid-filled
gauge. It should light up with the instrument panel but I think the bulb is
burned out. All other interior lights work as they should. I removed the Boost gauge that the previous owner
installed because it was on the A-pillar and forced you to take your eyes
off the road. Also, I installed this so that it could be easily unplugged
and stowed in the glovebox to avoid theft. I didn't cut or drill any holes
during installation and it can be easily removed. The sun visors stay put.
There are a few areas of the headliner that are beginning to settle.
Nothing major, can possibly be fixed with a spray adhesive.
1995 Nissan 300ZX
First drive of my new Nissan 300ZX non turbo. Its got a Greddy full Exhaust with Stillen headers. Only mods that I
know of. Anyways, ran nice and smooth, pretty good car for my first import.
Omni GLH TII first drive
This is the first time I've gotten to drive it since the engine swap and
startup. Engine is a from a 1988 Dodge Daytona Shelby Z. Upgraded to a 2.5"
swingvalve housing. 3" turbo back Exhaust. Nothing vacuum wise hooked up so
computer doesn't run the Boost. Just
basic engine running.
