Featured Car - Jerry Turner's 1987 Grand National
A sinister NASCAR look!

Jerry's car definitely exudes the Winston Cup car look. He has chosen Winston Cup wheels and Good Year Eagle #1 raised gold lettered tires for his GN. He bought the car December 1988 and he tells us that it has been a love affair ever since. Jerry drives his "mistress" daily, but only has 8,500 miles on a fresh rebuild to "roller motor" specs. Jerry is anxious to get to the track and get some numbers!
