WTF Friday: Blastro
Not sure if this photo is accurate of the current Blastro powerplant

I must admit I am pretty jealous of Solomon over at  Go with Solo because traveling around to Good Guys events gives him the opportunity to see tons of crazy cars, trucks, and vans like this 1985 Chevy Astro that has been converted into a tube chassis drag strip monster that the owner describes a street legal pro-mod all steel motor home.

I’ve seen a quite a few modified Chevy Astros in my day but never one that has been dropped, chopped, tubbed, and given a blow fuel injected big block Chevy heart.

Info on this car in terms of dyno numbers and trap times is a little sparse but pictures and videos are a plenty.

Check the textured flames on the air dam, nice touch
The entire vehicle works both as a show piece and a race beast
Solo spotted this at the Good Guys Columbus event
One hell of a gnarly people mover

Site Updates

Importfest is Saturday which means I can reveal (officially) the new sticker design that’s been in the works the past few weeks.

I am going to be giving these away to a few competitors at Importfest tonight but any I have left over will be free to any spectators who manage to track me down before they are gone.

I plan on arriving about 4 or so tomorrow and I’ll be updating my facebook and twitter with my ETA so if you want one of the pre production versions all you have to do is ask.

Big thanks to everyone involved in choosing the color ways for these new stickers, you will be given full credit in the upcoming contest for a few of these first run special editions.

I should also have some shirts and the store stock on me at the event as well.

On Sunday, if I am not too tired I will be heading out the Meeting of The Mazdas for the first time, should be a good weekend.
