13 Second Cars Built with Junkyard Parts - The Old Man From San Diego

13-Second Cars, Junkyard Parts

By , Photography by

What's 61 years old, wears a straw hat, and chooses off Honda punks every weekend? It's Bill Murray, the old man from San Diego who recently off'd seven of America's Sports Cars at a local "Corvettes take on all comers" weekend. The comment from the Bloomington Gold weenies: "But your carburetor is dirty and you don't have air conditioning."

That's the way Bill likes it. He also likes vintage Buicks and Oldsmobiles, 100,000-mile 455s that romp, and puttin' the hurt on the locals. But more than anything, Bill loves cheap: cheap cars, cheap paint jobs, cheap junkyard parts. Cheap power. He's pulled it off, too, with mild, driveable cars that look cool in that street-race-beater sort of way and run legit 13s in street trim. In fact, he has a yard full of 'em. Have a gander.
