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.

1971 Chevy Vega Commercial - Worst Car Ever Made in the USA in Modern Times
The Chevy Vega was built to compete with the likes of VW, Toyota and Datsun
in the USA. It was Chevy's first Sub Compact Car. Although there is
always some debate. This car is considered by many as being one of or
actually, the Worst Car Ever Made. It's very subjective. It was heavily
recalled by GM for prolbems, the alluminium engines warped, the front cowl
sections rusted thru in a short period of time. The overall build quality
was very suspect. The Ford Pinto had some Safety issues or at least a bad
reputation earned rightly or wrongly with the placement of the Gas Tank
and the AMC Gremlin had detractors to it's styling but was reliable car,
but the Vega was real junk.

Pro-touring is one of the fastest-growing segments in the muscle car hobby
today. For those of you not familiar with the concept, pro-touring embraces
taking a vintage muscle car and upgrading its mechanicals so that it can
brake, corner, and accelerate like a modern sports car, and still maintain
creature comforts we take for granted in our new cars. Essentially, a
pro-touring car is the best of all worlds: looks, comfort, and performance.
This '67 Camaro is an
outstanding example of the pro-touring concept. It retains the timeless
good looks of the first-year Chevy pony car and updates the 40-year-old
mechanicals with 21st century performance. Every aspect of the car has been
honed and polished, from the 572 cubic-inch big block under the hood to the
killer sound system. There's so much work in this car that it would take
days to describe all of it. I'll try to cover the major items, but until
you see this car in the flesh, you won't be able to fully appreciate how
truly spectacular it is.
The first thing you notice is how slick and smooth it looks. That early Camaro shape is about as
timeless as you can get, and this car shows you why. The beautiful orange
paint with flat black stripes puts quite a glow on that shapely vintage
sheet-metal. The body panels on this car are straight, rust free and have a
beautiful fit. The undercarriage is no exception, you will find it the same
condition as the body, super solid and rust free.
Pro-touring isn't merely about big wheels and low-profile tires, it's about
getting a combination that delivers sports car levels of performance and
still looks killer on the car. Because pro-touring is about making the car
work better, this Camaro was given 4 wheel
drilled/slotted power disc brakes, and a 3:36 posi rear end. The Boyd
Codington wheels are paired up with Nitto tires, and you're going to need
all that tire, too. Under the steel hood are 572 cubic inches of GM big
block power. Rated at 620 horsepower, this Camaro absolutely screams. The
entire engine is highly detailed, and features a BeCool radiator, Billett
pulleys, 2 ¼ ceramic coated Dynatec headers, a Demon carb and HEI
ignition. People line up 3 deep to get a look at this engine compartment.
Lots of go, lots of show.
You need to be fast with the shifter on top of the M20 manual 4 speed
transmission, because 1st gear is over before you can get your foot on the
floor, the tires are going up in smoke, and the car is lunging ahead. Go
ahead and power-shift second; the Hurst shifter makes it easy to find the
right slot. By the time you're in third, you're grinning like a mental
patient and the car is closing in on triple digits. Not even the hairiest
Camaros of the '60s --
Yenkos, COPOs, whatever -- were this scary fast, and none did it with so
much control. Pro-touring is still all about speed, but it's also about
precision, and this car has both bases completely covered.
No car can be respectfully called pro-touring without an interior upgrade,
and this car showcases what can be done with a little imagination and a lot
of cash. The front seats are new buckets, and the rear bench was made to
match. The dash is full of Autometer Ultra-Lite gauges behind a Grant
wheel. You will also find a Clarion receiver hooked up to a Clarion CD
changer in the trunk. All of the sound comes through a trunk mounted Kicker
amplifier and subwoofers, with Kicker speakers mounted in the door panels.
So if people want to talk pro-touring, use this car as your guide to how to
do it right. It's about the total package and reengineering every system in
the car to make it accelerate quicker, turn sharper, stop harder, and do it
all while being more comfortable to drive than any stock muscle car ever
could be. Judging by the amount of work on this car and its incredible
performance, there's just no way you could build this car yourself for what
we're asking. The fact that someone else has already made the investment
and done the heavy lifting for you means all you have to do is come and
drive it. I guarantee that's all you need. Give me a call today
