1999 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, 5.7L LS1 with a 4L60E and a 2.73 rear end

Best E.T 12.32 at 112MPH

I have owned the Camaro for about 18 months now, and have put a bigger cam, higher stall converter and bolt ons so far. The majority of work being carried out by my Dad and I.

Russ and his team at Customville are always very helpful, nothing is a problem and are there with advice and their years of knowledge. They have a large amount of items in stock, and if he doesn’t, usually has most parts within a few weeks.

Best e.t. with N.O.S 11.80 at 124mph only using the gas in 2nd and 3rd
Best e.t. without 12.30 at 115mph

I have owned this car for the past 30 years and have carried out the majority of the maintenance myself, the engine, gearbox, and rear axle have all been re-built and I have used Customville for the majority of spares and consumables over the years. Nowadays with the internet its very easy to buy parts from all around the world and it will probably save you money but if you want a reliable service with one of the UKs oldest American car parts specialist then give Russ and his team a call to see if they can find what you are looking for, you might be pleasantly surprised!

1968 Vauxhall Victor FD with a complete tube chassis and full steel body except the bonnet which is fiberglass. The engine is a 662 Cubic Inch (10.8 litre) big block ford with twin carbs that runs on C16 race fuel and produces roughly 1100 BHP, the engine is equipped with a 3 stage nitrous kit that allows us to add up to 600 extra horse power. The power gets sent through a J.W Ultra Glide 2 speed transmission and to the rear axle that has a  Mark Williams 40 spline centre section.
Our personal best over the standing 1/4 mile is 8.12 @ 168 mph without nitrous, and 7.78 @ 178 mph with a 200 shot of nitrous.

Born out of a requirement to circulate a 400 metre oval in the fastest possible time in the company of up to thirty other cars with similar characteristics, these 1500 kilogram motorised leviathans have the mandate to forceably remove slower cars from the racing line whilst engaging in a multiple lap challenge that goes beyond conventional motor sport.

Slow-rolling laps signal the start of each race and when the white-roofed cars come out of turn four, the green flag drops and it’s action all the way, as in excess of 12500 cubic inches of engine capacity converts the arena into a supercharged, no holds barred cauldron for oval supremacy over a minimum of sixteen laps.

The car was found on a Raf base and was owned by a guy called Colin Osbourne, it was brought my My Dad and his friend Gary in 1986. The car was brown with a red bonnet and slot mags. At the time it was a stock Buick 455 with a 750 double pumper open headers and slicks. The car was regularly run at North weald running around mid to low 13’s.

Gary parted ways with the car and dad made the decision to take it on himself. As time passed the car got more love and attention and was treated to its first lick of white paint, Dad competitively run the car for around 3-4 years chipping away at his Et running I think his best of 11.6. Early 90’s the decision was made to build the car to its almost identical state you see her in now. The car was then raced competitively for another 10 years. I now own the Car and have plans of using her as much as I can, small competitive bracket weekends and RWYB, I also would like to achieve at least one full competitive race season with the car if Money allows.
