Assembling a high-performance vehicle can be a daunting task for area novices and experts alike. Those seeking inspiration and guidance have a great local event to turn to, the Race and Performance Expo.
The three-day trade show, which just completed its sixth year, took place last weekend at the Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles. Although the focus is instructional seminars and aisles of the latest go-fast goodies and high-tech products, attendees were treated to a new section this year called the Car Builder’s Showcase. This showcase consisted of showstopping dream machines. The remarkable level of top-notch craftsmanship can be demonstrated by three examples from the show we highlight here.
1981 Pontiac Trans-Am Dale Schwartz, Schwartz Performance, Woodstock
1962 Ford Falcon Gasser Dan Ulreich, Derek Smunt, Midwest Hot Rods, Plainfield
1969 Chevrolet Camaro Roadster Shop, Mundelein
