Wall of Fame, the early years

This is the Wall of Fame honoring some of the early stock car and Nascar drivers from the moonshining days around Dawsonville and the country roads that led to Atlanta. That was where the market was for moonshine.

The handling of this car would have really been something back in the day. External improvements include an optional SVT Performance Package, which includes Goodyear EagleF1 SuperCar G: 2 tires, all-new lightweight 19-inch forged-aluminum wheels in the front and new 20-inch forged-aluminum wheels in the rear, 3.73 rear axle ratio, performance tuned front and rear shocks, along with stiffer springs. I didn't care as much for the appearance of the wheels, as they always just looked dirty to me. I can't like everything, but you can always change the wheels. By the end of the week, they were growing on me. When the tach is climbing, you can't see the wheels.
