Sinister Road Runner

What catches my attention at a car show?..

Not the chrome or the half-naked girls. I get excited when builds crosses between different generations, trends, and styles. This then starts a new movement of copy cats and new trends to be born in the grassroots scene.

This RoadRunner is a fine example of what I gets my attention. First off, the stance is spot-on. No bags or BS. Full coilover conversion for the best of old and new. Then there's the ridiculous motor that sounds and runs like a 1200 hp Pro-stock machine. Notice the use of wrinkle red on the twin valve covers. (Honda)

Then the rollers are ZONE wheels finished in gloss black with full painted lips and barrels. Oh, did I mention it has Step Lips and a full Time-Attack pinstripe..

Blending of styles and trends are not easy, but this Road Runner has set the bar very high for others to follow. All show, all go, and all business.

So, how did he do on the autocross?.. wait for the next Gazette and you shall see.
