Introduction: This list is solely based on my opinion. All these vehicles are production cars. Just because a car is not ranked high does not mean it’s bad. I would like feedback so feel free to leave it below the article and I will respond. Thanks for reading as usual and look out for my Japanese car list soon.
#10. The Buick Grand National was one of the fastest American production cars of the 1980′s. This car looks sleek and sexy stock. All were made in black. This inter-cooled turbo V6 has shocked the world over and over. When modified a Grand National can be quite the challenge to beat in a race. I have seen many of these G bodies with the V6 wheel stand at the track.
Mother nature was nasty that day. Our show started at 12pm and at 12pm the bottom fell out hard. On the other hand, the weather cleared that afternoon and we still had a few nice rigs show up. For the few that made it we still did a little awards judging. The mayor of Kimberly, AL judged 3 best in show plaques, put up by TP’s. We are going to throw this event again on June 26 so come out!
Come on down this weekend for a great time with cool bikes and cars. We want all types of vehicles to join in. Good food, music, and prizes. No entrance fee just pull up to this fun cruise in show.
Where: TP’s Bar and Grill- 9394 Peterson Drive Kimberly,Al 35091
When: June 26 12pm-6pm
The first generation z/28 camaros are some of the most interesting in my opinion. Originally this car was made for the Trans-Am racing series so Chevy had to produce a street version for the public to be able to enter in the series. When you hear “302″ Ford might come to mind for most but actually these Camaros had a 302ci engine under the hood as well. The rules for the racing series stated that engine had to be under 305ci and 5liters, and that’s how the Chevy 302ci motor was born. Most z/28′s came with beefed up suspension, power front brakes, 4 speed munci, cowl induction hood, trunk lid spoiler, and the famous z/28 racing strips to say the least. The 1967 z/28 is hard to find with only 602+/- made. The 1968 model had 7,199 +/- units made and in 1969 20,302+/- units were produced.
Buddy Bowers is the proud owner of this clean 1969 SS Camaro and nicked named it “Gerald Dean”. Buddy lives in Springville,AL and has a tile contracting business in Birmingham. Mr. Bowers purchased this car in Tampa,FL at a muscle car dealership a few years back. Buddy has been a huge fan of the automotive world his whole life and told us “I like anything cool on wheels”. Buddy has had a 4×4 K5 Blazer and a custom Jeep Wrangler in the World of Wheels car show. Even though he likes anything cool on wheels when it comes down to it he has always wanted a Dodge Viper hands down.
