The Super Chevy shows that take place in or near the Atlanta area have long been the most popular in the American South.They feature legions of spectators, a car corral that rivals the car show itself, and a swap meet that junkyard dogs can roam for hours.
True Streets was anything but a one-man show, with five of the seven competitors within a second of each other. Four late-model hot rods turned the contest into a nail biter as Phil Bonner in his 2000 Corvette took home gold with a 13.23-second average; just a hair quicker than Mitchell Moon's 13.15-second average.
No nine-second True Street passes today, but this one sure goes into the record books as the closest margin of victory in the history of the class. Way to go guys!
When it came to True Street, seven He-Men entered the contest with hammer in hand.
These are the top three True Street Machines and their owners:
Overall Winner:Phil Bonner, Lilburn, GA, 13.12 in his 2000 Corvette.
Runner-Up:Mitchell Moon, Appling, GA, 13.15 in his '99 Trans Am
13-Second Index Winner:Justin Buckern, Bincon, GA, 13.51 in his 2002 Camaro SS
