AWD Camaro!

[singlepic id=760 w=525 float=none]

Yes, it’s an all-wheel drive 1968/2010 Camaro. John Wargo from The Custom Shop in Flanagan, Illinois joins Courtney this weekend with his wild custom muscle car. In a 7 month build he took the back end of a 2010 and grafted it on the front end of a ’68 Camaro, performed a two seat roadster convertible conversion and added all-wheel drive. He dropped in an LSX Pace Performance 376 motor with an F-1 Pro-charger and Holley intake and Holley Dominator fuel injection system. It rolls on Forge Line, 3 piece wheels with Toyo Tires. The paint is Pro Spray Speed Orange and Brilliant Black with a tri-coat Pearl. Check it out on PowerBlock May 4th & 5th. For more, check out CustomShop.org

PowerBlock Goes Electric!

[singlepic id=636 w=525 float=none]

This weekend on PowerBlock Courtney features two Nissan Leaf all electric race cars! Ron Stukenberg, Senior Manager for Nissan Motorsports, brings the Nissan Leaf that won its division at the Pikes Peak Hill Climb and a NISMO Leaf RC. The RC stands for racing competition and it could be the future of racing. It goes zero to 60 in 6.8 seconds and only weighs 2000lbs. It’s 100% electric so there’s no emissions, no CO2 gases or noisy exhaust. The other Leaf is completely stock except for a rollcage, fire extinguisher and more aggressive tires and wheels. Off road driver Chad Hord drove it up the 12 mile, 156 turn course in a time of 14:33. The race finishes at 14,110 feet and higher altitude means less performance for an internal combustion car. But the electric Leaf had no loss of power. Check it out on PowerBlock January 28 & 29. For more go to NissanUSA.com/Performance
