Featured Car - Ed Lovette's 1987 Grand National

Another clean stock appearing street prowler ...

Ed's deceprive looking stocker has some bolt on goodies that should net him some low 12s/high 11s when he gets it sorted out at the track. 64 year old Ed lives in Winston-Salem, NC and is no stranger to the turbo cars. His first was about four years back, a gray T-Type, also a very nice car. It didn't have as many bolt ons as his GN ... but it was still a heckuva a ride. We all know how fast even a bone stock turbo Regal is!

Ed's GN has 97,000 miles on it but runs like a new car. Ed plans to get it to the track during 2001 to get it sorted out and a handful of timeslips.
