Street Outlaws Monza Job

We won championships the first year we did it, and then we came back the next year and won the championship again.”

Back in the day, he used to race 972 split bumpers Z/28 Camaro. “It’s kind of my dream car, ” he shared. “I’ve always liked the ’70 to ’73 Rally Sport split-bumper Cameros. I wanted one as a kid but I could never afford one. I finally came across this one six or seven years ago.”
He added more, “I got it from Dominator off the show — it was just an old shell, basically, and we built it up. Squirrels were living in the thing when we picked it up. It was a bare hull, and we took a true 1972 split-bumper Camaro RS and tuned it into a race car. Some folks think I’m stupid for doing that instead of just going for a tube chassis deal, but I was building it for street racing.”
