St. John Catholic Church Car Show / July 31
We were really impressed with the first St. John Catholic Church Car Show we attended last Saturday, July 31.
Church member and organizer John Meaney is a long-time friend of LPE and founder of BigStuff3, makers of digital fuel injection systems. We were invited to display, along with BigStuff3 customers including JEGS and Rad Rides by Troy.
The blue T/A got a lot of looks.
There were probably 200 cars in the show.
Some were fairly obscure. There were about 347 Pulse vehicles made between 1985 and 1990 in Owosso Michigan by the Owosso Motor Car Company. Underneath, it's a motorcycle. It rides on 2 main wheels and has 2 outrigger wheels.
Two very different black cars.
Long-time LPE customer John Spratt brought his '56 Chevy with 615 cubic inch engine we built with EFI, Donovan aluminum block, Dart Big Chief aluminum heads, making around 880 HP. We've also worked with John on a 1966 Chevy II with an EFI 383 we built, a 1990 SS 454 truck with a 1500 HP twin turbo BBC EFI and an H2 Hummer we supercharged.
Mike Coughlin brought his JEGS Top Sportsman car.
Mike also brought his Lingenfelter-powered C5 Corvette, one of 3 with that center mount charge cooler and modified duct work different from our standard 725 HP C5 Twin turbos. I thought the guy in the photo was Mike; turns out he drove the rig. No wonder he had a laugh when I asked him for a photo.
Rad Rides by Troy is famous for show cars and they brought the '62 Chevy "Chicane" and Roger Ritzow's '32 Ford.
"Chicane" has a really-nicely detailed twin turbo for power.
The '32 Ford has a flathead with fuel injection.
The church is near the GM Proving Grounds and not-yet-on-sale Cadillac CTS-V Coupe and Chevy Volt test cars were on display.
The Volt drew quite a crowd.
We're looking forward to next year and plan to attend with a bigger presence!
