2015_ISCA_Championship_Finals

 
The 2015 ISCA Championship Finals sponsored by Summit Racing Equipment went off without a hitch during the Chicago World of Wheels, March 13-15, 2015. Fifteen of the top points cars involved with the Summit Racing Equipment Show Car Series went head to head in competition for the 2015 ISCA Grand Champion Award.

There are five different categories of competition involved in the ISCA Championship Finals. They include Custom, Rod, Truck, Restored and Street Machine Comp. The entries in each of these categories are separated into classes determined by the number and the type of modifications that have been made to each entry. These entries compete during our season to accumulate points to qualify for the Finals and this special weekend in Chicago. This year’s Finals consisted of entries from ten different states.

The 2015 ISCA Category Champions included Ronson and Teri Burton from Milton, Delaware with their 1963 Nova convertible. Ronson was a Detroit Great 8 Ridler contender a few years ago and has been winning many awards on the ISCA circuit for the last couple of years. In 2014 Ronson and Teri were in the runner up position but came back strong this year to win the Custom Championship. The Truck Category for 2015 was won by Linda and Harry Smith from Powell, Tennessee with a 1983 bright red Blazer. They have been showing the Blazer with us for a few seasons and have won the Truck Championship before, but the truck always looks great and ready to show. Harry has another project in the works and, I believe, plans on debuting it at the Detroit Autorama in 2016. He does most of the work on his entries himself with some help with the paint and the interiors. Great to see this kind of effort pay off for them. Phil and Deb Becker out of Dwight, Illinois took the Rod Championship with their Dave Lane built 1932 Ford three window coupe. This hot rod has been on many magazine covers and has won so many awards from the ISCA, Goodguys and NSRA it would take two pages to list them all. The car has been done for four years and looks today just like it did when it was first done. The Restored Championship has been a long time coming for this year’s winner. Jeep Compton from Lufkin, Texas has been showing and winning ISCA shows for the last eight years and has made it to the Finals many times before. He has shown four different vehicles over the years and captured his first ISCA Category Championship this year with a 69 Camaro convertible. Needless to say he and the other category champions were over the top with excitement.

The 2015 Grand Champion and the Street Machine Comp Category Champion was Brian Ganos with his Jim Hubbell prepared 69 Camaro from Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. This is the second time this pair has put together a great package for our shows. The stunning blue Camaro was a Detroit Great 8 Ridler entry in 2015 and has won about every award it has been up for this past season. The ISCA is very proud to have them represent our hobby for the next year as the ISCA Grand Champions. The Camaro was painted by Charlie Hutton and the interior was done by M & M Interiors. Congratulations to all the category winners and to all the contestants of the 2015 Summit Racing Equipment Show Car Series and the ISCA Championship Finals.

It will be “Fast & Furious” In Select Cities!

Championship Auto Shows, Inc. is known for presenting iconic custom vehicles from television and film at its Autorama, World of Wheels, and Cavalcade of Customs events. This year, CASI is pulling out all the stops to showcase vehicles from one of Hollywood’s most popular film series.

The Fast and the Furious action films have earned a worldwide box office of $2.3 billion to date, making them Universal Studio’s most lucrative franchise of all time. The popularity of the films is due, in large part, to the street racing and automotive action sequences. Now fans of the franchise can get a close up look at several cars used in the films in the following select cities:

- Cincinnati, OH (Jan. 9-11, 2015): 55th Annual KOI Auto Parts Cavalcade of Customs
- Pittsburgh, PA (Jan. 23-25, 2015): 54th Annual World of Wheels
- Kansas City, MO (Feb. 13-15, 2015): 55th Annual O’Reilly Auto Parts World of Wheels
- Milwaukee, WI (Feb. 20-22, 2015): 53rd Annual O’Reilly Auto Parts World of Wheels
- New Orleans, LA (Feb. 27-Mar. 1, 2015): 45th Annual O’Reilly Auto Parts World of Wheels
- Detroit, MI (Mar. 6-8, 2015): 63rd Annual Meguiar’s Autorama
- Chicago, IL (Mar. 13-15, 2015): 53rd Annual O’Reilly Auto Parts World of Wheels Presented by South Oak Dodge Chrysler Jeep
- Winnipeg, MB (Mar. 20-22, 2015): 41st Annual Piston Ring’s World of Wheels
- Boston, MA (Mar. 27-29, 2015): 41st Annual Town Fair Tire World of Wheels

Included in The Fast and the Furious Collection are the green 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse and white 1995 Volkswagen Jetta from the first movie (The Fast and the Furious), the 1970 Chevy Chevelle SS and 1970 Dodge Charger from the fourth movie (Fast and Furious), the 2008 Dodge Challenger from the sixth movie (Fast & Furious 6).

The 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse sports custom green paint, SE7EN 18-inch aluminum wheels by Axis Sport Tuning, Inc. with Toyo Tires, Sparco racing seats, 2-Liter 4-cylinder engine, a Robo Car Aero Armor Eclipse Body Kit and an ARP two-level GT2 style wing. In the film, the Eclipse is owned by character “Brian Earl Spilner,” who is also known as “Brian O’Conner” (the late Paul Walker). After the first film, the Eclipse was repainted blue and used in 2 Fast 2 Furious in the scene where O’Conner learns to drive. It was repainted in its original green paint scheme at completion of filming.

Known as the “Bullet Car” or “Jesse’s Jetta,” the 1995 Jetta’s most distinctive features are the custom body kit, a 4-cylinder engine with 5-speed transmission, 18-inch Konig custom wheels, WingsWest rear spoiler and 19 realistic-looking painted bullet holes. The bullet holes illustrate the Jetta and “Jesse” (Chad Lindberg) being sprayed by bullets in a drive-by shooting in the film.

The primer painted 1970 Chevelle SS from the fourth installment boasts a Small Block GMPP 350 crate engine with aluminum headers, Edelbrock intake, Jaz fuel cell, Beard racing seats, Koya 17-inch custom racing wheels, AutoMeter gauges, Wilwood rotors and brakes, Hotchkis sway bar suspension and a full roll cage. The Chevelle was used in filming of the “race for the job” scene and associated with character “Dominic Toretto” (Vin Diesel).

The flat black 1970 Dodge Charger is another “Dominic Toretto” (Vin Diesel) vehicle from Fast & Furious and Fast 5. While the magic of Hollywood led people to believe that the Charger was powered by a blown Hemi engine, it is actually equipped with a Chevy 350 with an attached faux blower. This Charger was used for close-up purposes with the actors.

Yet another “Dominic Toretto” ride, the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8-391 can be seen in chase scenes at the end of Fast Five and the beginning of Fast & Furious 6. The Challenger is powered by a first edition 6.1 Liter Hemi engine, and is fitted with a wide-body kit from Classic Design Concepts that adds six inches of width. It also has custom rims, a stock interior and a patched-in faux shaker hood.

You can have your own Fast & Furious experience at select AutoRama and World of Wheels events this season! Along with the Fast & Furious cars, you can see hundreds of locally customized vehicles, magazine feature cars, sports stars, celebrities and top competitors from the Summit Racing Equipment Show Car Series, which is sanctioned by the International Show Car Association.

More than a million spectators annually attend Championship Auto Shows indoor events under the names of World of Wheels, Autorama and Cavalcade of Customs. For more information, visit www.AutoRama.com.
