Growing up with a dad so firmly entrenched in making things fast, it was only natural that his kids would catch the bug. After Jeff’s son Dale built a 1982 Trans Am, his daughter Justina started to feel the itch and started poking around for something to autocross. As a boot-straps kinda guy, Jeff stated that she could build her own car, just like her brother did. With that, Justina rustled up a twice-worn ’89 Camaro from the back lot and went to town.
Turning corners runs in the family and pays the bill, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that this Camaro didn’t end up a drag car or a Conestoga wagon on 24s, but rather wears 18x9.5 and 18x12 Weld S77Bs stuffed into the wheelwells; the stock 16x8s could only dream of looking so good. How’d they get 10lbs of tire in a 5lb bag? Mini tubs were fabricated to make room in back for the 315s from BFG, along with a custom panhard rod and control arms from Schwartz, all suspended by Viking coilovers. Up front, things are surprisingly stock, with QA1 coilovers setting the ride height over the 275s. Baer 14” rotors and six-piston calipers serve as a backdrop for the contrast-cut rollers.
