Car Craft Summer Nationals 2017 The World’s Fastest Model T

  Car Craft Summer Nationals 2017 The World’s Fastest Model T Mike Warren of Lobelville, Tennessee comes across as any typical, enthusiastic gear head you might run into at a car event, the vehicle he brought out to the Car Craft Summer Nationals this year is anything but average. This one off creation started life as the shell of a 1926 Model T, that no one, not even the local Model T club wanted anything to do. Rather than seeing the husk of the car as a lost cause, Mike saw it as an open canvas to do whatever he wanted and got to work in his shop.© Wes Allison,Jacob Davis,Mike WarrenAfter taking a trip to Bonneville, Mike had always wanted to build a land speed racer.

F-bodies (that would be Camaros and Firebirds for those not hip to the nomenclature) are arguably one of the most iconic cars ever churned out by General Motors. It was Chevrolet's answer to the Mustang and even though we are pretty biased we're convinced it won the pony car wars. Give the car's huge popularity it's no wonder so many clubs and organizations are loyal to the nameplate. But, what was really needed was a venue for likeminded Camaro fanatics to come together. That was the idea behind the Classic Industries F-Body Nationals held this year in Memphis, TN. Yep, an entire event dedicated to all things F-Body. When we found out we just had to go check it out for ourselves.

Custom Shop’s 1962 Big-Block Corvette

  Custom Shop’s 1962 Big-Block Corvette First-generation Corvettes aren’t a common sight at the Summer Nats, so even after a few laps around the Custom Shop’s Copper Topless 1962 C1 we couldn’t quite figure out where factory fiberglass ended and the custom work began. © Hot Rod Network StaffInitially we were struck by the big-block Chevy that was shoehorned into the car's compact engine bay. As if a 596ci V8 weren't enough, it's force-fed with a Vortech supercharger to the tune of 1,048hp. John Wargo is in Bowling Green representing The Custom Shop, which is outside of Chicago, and he walked us through some of the modifications we'd missed.

The event had a little something for everyone. It was held at the Memphis International Raceway, so there was a great drag strip to try out. For those that like a few turns thrown in there was also a great CPP-sponsored autocross that was pretty challenging. For those looking to chill out a bit more there was a large car show with Camaros, Firebirds, and Trans Ams of all generations on display. There was also a large tent holding some pretty rare examples including VINs 001 and 031, some of the first Camaros ever produced.

A 1970 Camaro That Was Built To Go Fast And Look Good Doing It .
<p>If he was going to be competitive he needed a whole new plan of action.</p>If he was going to be competitive he needed a whole new plan of action. "I went to the first event in Laguna Seca and was really impressed that there was an event that judged your car based on driving performance first and looks second. I knew my Chevelle wouldn't be competitive unless I completely rebuilt it to handle well. About the same time, my friend was selling a 1970 Chevy Camaro he had stripped down but never found time to work on.
