The eclectic display of antique and modern vehicles, combined with the authentic, 1930s buildings of Forest City's Main Street, leaves people feeling like the decades have collided. The event runs from 11 a.m. - 9 p.m. and features live music, vendors, prizes and more. Registration is $25 per vehicle and the event is free for spectators.

Are you serious? lol. They are about 3 miles from the airport rd Sonic. Dave Marcus's old shop. Somebody called and asked what they would tune a ls car for and it was something crazy. 5-600 bucks I cant remember. But they do some pretty cool stuff I hear.

A friend of mine has, but it was a 3rd gen with a holley. But he is very happy with them and has started hanging around there some. Never heard anything bad about them, and Ive sold them parts. That's all I really know.
