Featured Car - Eddie Burt Jr's 1987 Turbo Regal

Somewhere in all that smoke there's a gray TR!

Eddie has had this car for a lttle over a year... and he says enthusiastically "I LOVE IT!" Hard to argue with a daily driver that will belt out 11s on Drag Radials, functioning air conditioner and still gets about 20 miles per gallon. Eddie is shooting for the low 11s for sure.

Eddie has also won 1st place in the Houston Buick Viewers Choice car show, and plans to enter it into as many races as Ihe can get the car totally sorted out..
