This Guy's Garage If you saw the "Turbo Guys" article in our Dec. '11 issue, you might have caught a peek at Marty Stromberger's garage and wondered about the monster Hollywood sign on the wall and perhaps about the shop in general. The name of Marty's business is Stromberger Performance, and yes, he builds a lot of cars with turbos. Let's take a look around. 1. This is Joe DeCaro's '67 Chevelle. You can read about it in the Dec. '11 issue. Last pass was 9.60 at 143 mph. 2. This is a '55 Pontiac convertible also owned by a customer. This one was purchased at a Barrett-Jackson auction and it needed work. Marty added a Fat Man front suspension to get rid of the kingpins and a 5.3L LS engine with a T76 single turbo with a front-mounted intercooler and a RideTech suspension. It is going to be Post-It-Note yellow. 3. The yellow pit bike is 49 cc, and you can ride it around without a MC endorsement, like a moped. You can't see them, but the decals replicate the Bad Man '55 Revell kit from the '60s. 4. The orange pickup is a '57 that belongs to customer Gordon Kendall. Marty got it in a million pieces and began to build. He added a set of twin turbos to the existing B&M 144 blower on top of a ZZ4 GM short-block, finished the wiring, and swapped the cylinder heads for something with a larger chamber to get the compression down. It dyno'd at 400 rwhp with 440 lb-ft with 10 pounds of boost. More power? Not on the cast piston short-block, thanks. 5. Marty was at lunch when he spotted the last Hollywood Video store in the area being stripped for parts. He walked over and talked the construction crew into leaving the sign next to the Dumpster instead of crushed inside the Dumpster. Marty paid them $65 for beer money and hung the sign in his garage. 6. The black Honda is a '67 C160 Baby Dream. Marty bought it on eBay Motors for $850 from a guy who worked for George Barris. He cleaned it up so he could cruise it around town in the summer. The local Harley guys love it. By Douglas R. Glad Enjoyed this Post?
