Steve Bertone's 1979 Turbo Regal, Nascar Replica
I've built this car three times and purchased it in 1980 when it was a stock turbo Regal. It had been totalled. I repaired it back to stock and drove it for a while, at the time I had a custom car business. One of my customers had to have it around 1982. He then wanted it modified to look like a Winston Cup car. I did some minor things like wider tires and lowering and painted like Dale Earnharts car at the time. My customer proceeded to run it off the road at over 100 mph and totalled it again. I purchased the car back, built a new frame and recustomized as you see it now. You can read the spec sheet to see all that has been done to it. Mostly it sits in the warehouse. Occasionally I take it to road course track events. Or, being street legal, go terrorize the locals. It was designed to do 200 mph.
