The Cheetah

Released: 1964

 

In 1964 Carroll Shelby was pretty much stomping everybody on the race track with his brutal Cobras. The Corvettes had not only fallen prey to the Ford powered roadsters, but even Zora Duntov’s Grand Sport program had been cancelled because of the racing ban that GM had. So in a desperate attempt to beat the Cobra’s, GM honcho Vince Piggins met with sports car racer and builder Bill Thomas, and told him Chevy would supply engines and parts if Thomas would build a car that could beat the Cobras.

We’re winding up the tenth season of GearZ, and what a season it’s been! But we’ve got some business to take care of before we move onto season eleven. First things first…Holley just made an EFI even easier to install on your carbureted vehicle, and Stacey will show you just how on target the Sniper is. The Thiokol Imp gets a suspension upgrade to keep it on track. And there’s a new kind of off-roading that’s sweeping the nation…see what RC4WD has going on. And what season would be complete without guitars? Check out Tennessee Electric Company as Stacey introduces a new guitar-maker whose custom guitars are hotter than the asphalt at the drag strip.
