Father/Son Vintage Camero In Autocross

There were other “vintage” cars besides Cliff’s 1976 Cosworth Vega at the SPOKES 2009 Autocross #5.  There was a father/son team co-competing in a modified 1968 Chevrolet Camero.

By both the looks & sounds, you could definitely tell this car was no longer stock.

Neither Paul was very forthcoming about the mechanical mods to this aggressive sounding beast.  The engine was a 383 (cubic inches) fuel injected motor.  Also, the front end had some coilover shocks accompanied by a 3″ drop.  That more powerful than stock engine was accompanied by an open manual 5-speed transmission.

Up to date tires & wheels were a serious combination of Hoosiers mounted on Forgeline wheels.

It was good to see 2 different generations of family enjoying the unification of their ride, a good ole Chevy Camero…

Racing Ready has already been witness to the fun competition of parent/child racing rivalry:

It would be good to see more of this family sharing – as the family that races together, stays together!
