I owned an identical 1985 GSL-SE in high-school which died at the hands of a friend who put it a curb. Hard. Hard enough to bend the subframe and misalign the body panels.

I bought after deciding that nothing else would fill the void and took it from an almost stock car to its current state. I has been through two paint jobs under my care after I mistakenly let my younger brother park it under a Jeep, fortunately the damage was minor.

This spring it the engine tune will be sorted out by the guys at www.diyautotune.com when they install a Megasquirt on it at the the Mitty. The car is used for auto-x, hpde events, regular driving duties and will hopefully be competing in some time trial type events.

A special thanks goes out to:

  • Racing Beat
  • Cameron at Pettit Racing
  • Billy at RE-Speed
  • Jerry at DIYAutoTune
  • Paul at Mazmart
