About “NATA”

I have always been an F-body and GM small block fan.

This is my 3rd F-body with the others being Camaros.

Clicky



My car is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
It maketh me burnout on black pavements;
It leadeth me beside busy freeways.
It restoreth my soul;
It leads me in the path of quickness
For it's name sake.

Yea, though I walk through the velley of rice and imports,
I shall fear no turbo; for Torque art with me;
Thy rod and Thy piston, they comfort me.

Thou preparest a track before me
in the presence of mine enemies;
Though hast anointed my bearings with oil;
My car overpowers.
Surely traction and victory shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I shall dwell in the house of the V8
Forever.

Amen.
