The Streamline Motorsports Civic is owned and piloted by Donny Stefani of Pompano Beach, Fla. The Civic is force fed by a Jackson Racing supercharger outfitted with a special pulley to up the boost. Stand-alone fuel injection and substantial chassis rigidity tricks make this blown Honda one to keep an eye on.
The IS 300 is one car that has universal appeal as evidenced by this slammed, wheeled and exhausted example. Aaron Vuu was the driver representing Nalley Lexus in Roswell, Georgia.

Gary Gardella and his brother are building this car out of New Jersey, with backing from Echo Unlimited clothing. The engine needs a fuel system and the proposed Speed Pro engine management needs to be dialed in. We are looking forward to seeing more of this car on the strip in 2001.

Ms. Skunk2, Corinne Kendall stopped traffic with ease. Skunk2 was on hand promoting its lineup of Honda go-fast parts. The deck extension plate allows the use of longer rods without whacking out bottom end geometry. Skunk2 also offers a compete race engine program.
This Z-Car had bright paint and a sweet interior.

This battered del Sol met the challenge in the burnout contest. The Honda spewed smoke until a tire failed.
