About “Peter Pan”

This car is my favorite playtoy! Peter Pan takes Tinkerbell wherever she wants to go. On sunny summer days, he helps me with my suntan, and we turn heads wherever we go.

About “NastyAstre”

Bought the Tubed Vega Chassis at a swap meet several years ago and threw a Pontiac 400 into it (hence Astre). I have been racing it ever since.

I have won the Colorado Super Chevy Show in the car twice, 2000 and 2006. I was in the non-delay class both times.
