‘AWESUM’ 1971 Chev Camaro
It’s almost inevitable that the quest for speed results in a car being tubbed to fit larger rubber under the bum and a loss of street registration. Well, at least, that’s how it used to be. Quick street cars are where the action is at these days, and there’s a big push behind small-tyre cars sticking it to those with big rubber, too. Craig Wall and his ‘AWESUM’ 1971 Camaro have been preaching this for years, with AWESUM having been driven to the annual Father’s Day Drags, gone right into the pointy end of competition, and been driven home again with no trailer in sight. The car has run 10-second quarters since back in the days when that was almost unheard of for a streeter, and, although it’s not raced much these days, Craig still drives the wheels off it every chance he gets.
