Yet another car show... the Camaro seems to get lots of attention.
Most people are amazed at the amount of detail work that has gone into the car
during construction and how clean Harry keeps it for a street car!
When Harry goes to the track it is usually with a group of racing buddies and
friends including Bill Creech and Al Alguire as shown below!
Harry's wife Caroline, is also on hand to take care of taking the all important
pictures and movies of Harry and his car.
Here is Harry lighting them up just prior to another mid 10 second pass down the track !
Harry is no slouch when it comes to handling the wrenches. He built his current
427 BBC motor, in addition to making all kinds of modifications to the car from
fuel systems to modifying the chassis components. Oh and did I mention that he
also does his own paint and body work.... Harry you are "Da Man" !!
Shown below are some videos of Harry's Wicked Camaro including some
quarter mile runs at the track...
" If your in or around Rocklin California be sure to keep an eye out for Harry
and his "Wicked 69 Camaro" cruising the streets looking "BAD" as ever !! "
