True Street is a class that separates the real street machines from the race cars with license plates. We were so impressed with row of them that they garnered two our coveted Editor's Choice Drag Car awards at the Texas Motorplex Super Chevy Show.

Take Jason Glover's inconspicuous '57 210 hardtop. The clean black hardtop with the flat hood gives little outward indication that it's a 10-second machine, but it ran a best of 10.06 in the first of three passes after a 20-mile road tour. He averaged 10.118 over the three runs to win the True Street title. For this we gave him an Editor's Choice award.

Shawn Farris' '69 Camaro was another True Street standout who got an Editor's Choice Award. This nitrous fed F-body ran a best of 10.55, and averaged 11.055. He also ran non electronics brackets and the 11-second index class.

Gary, Kallen and Adam Gereau got one for their 8-second '67 Camaro RS (400 SBC with a ProCharger F2 supercharger. Another F2-equipped winner was Kevin Johnson's blown '71 Chevelle with a 540 under the hood.

Our final award went to David Thompson and his '95 S-10, which has a 406 between the fenders.
