Faith in an extreme street car is hard-earned. Pushing the limits of what a street car is and can be often comes at a hefty reliability price, but Chris Bishir makes striking a balance look easy. Not only did the Fort Wayne, Indiana, resident set out to compete in the True Street class at Holley LS Fest just hours before HOT ROD Drag Week tech day, Bishir won at LS Fest and then proceeded to repeat his win in Drag Week’s Street Race Small-Block Power Adder class.
At LS Fest, Bishir trounced the competition in his gray 1982 Chevrolet S10 with an 8.70-second average elapsed time. That was more than 0.4 second clear of his nearest opponent. While Bishir likes winning—something he does often—his primary goal at LS Fest was to tweak the tune on the recently installed 6.0L engine for Drag Week. Because Bishir’s class (Street Race Small-Block Power Adder) has a minimum e.t. of 8.500 seconds, Bishir wanted to get the tune-up just right to run within a three- or four-hundredths of a second of the class floor.

If there is one downfall to having a car show in the middle of Summer, some might say it’s the heat. Well, the Holley LS-Fest is a “hot” event that eliminated the heated conditions by announcing that their 2016 event will be happening On September 9, 10, and 11. That might seem like a long time away, but you should probably make plans now, as Holley has announced that preregistration is now open for Holley LS Fest 2016.

Ah, the local early-morning cars and coffee meets. A relaxing drive to your favorite local hangout, good coffee and pleasant people.

It blew me out of the water.
