Well, we don't have to imagine what it would be like, because here it is: Brandon Vivian's '78 Trans Am. Using a combination of off-the-shelf aftermarket suspension and brake components combined with his own suspension engineering, Brandon's goal was to build the best road-race car he could using the stock body and frame. He proved his design by completing the grueling 5,400-mile One Lap course, which challenges contestants to race on and drive between seven road racing tracks spread around the country in a week-long marathon. Brandon and his brother Bryan built this car from scratch in Brandon's garage, including the paint application and bodywork, welding up the road-race-style rollcage, and fabricating a custom carbon-fiber console and doorsill plates. The level of quality and engineering skill exemplified in this car was astounding. It didn't hurt that Brandon can drive pretty well too. « | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | » | View Full Article Enjoyed this Post?
