Everything was functional on that car, its was the sweetest thing I ever saw. I was in Duquoin the year that Rick Dobbertin introduced the car, its was a Pontiac J2000. I need to dig out all my old pics from DuQuoin. I went almost every year from 1984 (it was in Springfield then) to 1997. This pic was taken at Telvi's Raquteball Club & campground just outside of DuQuoin in 1986. Telvi's was the party site back then and it was some of the best times of my youth. This was my first Camaro, the hot and very young lady in the pic is still my wife to this day!

That J2000 was way overkilled and not able to make any kind of decent 1/4 mile pass. He built that in the beginning of ProStreet as an example of the WAAAAY Extreme that you could go. The workmanship and imagination was phenomenal ! No idea where it is today, should be in the Pro Street Museum.
