One final note: the Thomas Hewitt, "Leatherface," Texas Chainsaw Massacre mural on the trunk, airbrushed by "Meer," serves as a warning. Evelio built this car in only four months and "The Executioner" is out to carve up the competition. He will be coming for you.
The ExecutionerOwner: Evelio PerezVehicle: '87 Buick RegalCity/State: Miami, FloridaClub: Rollerz Only C.C.
Engine/Drivetrain: Under the hood, there's a 388-c.i.d. stroker that replaced the original V-6. Built by Luis Camacho and Evilio's father, Evilio Sr., the motor runs a 750 Holley carburetor, roller rocker Crane cam, and custom headers that feed into open exhausts. The firewall has been smoothed, then painted and pinstriped to match the exterior.
Body/Paint: The body was kept original with small touches like chrome side mirrors, painted elements in the front bumpers, and chromed headlight rims and rocker panels. Evelio added a canvas top and sandblasted his Rollerz Only club logo into the rear quarter glass. House of Kolor Candy Teal was accented with Lapis Blue and Pavo Purple. The pinstriping was done by Joe Williams who flew in from Las Vegas, Nevada, to do the job.
Interior: The interior follows the original approach, using factory-style stitching and teal fabric covering the dash, seats and door panels. Tony's Seat Covers in Miami accomplished the upholstery work. The steering wheel was painted to match.
Sound System: The Executioner executes audio excellence through a Pioneer P2000 CD player.
Setup: The chassis rails were reinforced, the upper and lower A-arms molded, the trailing arms and rearend reinforced, and virtually everything underneath was either carefully painted and pinstriped or chromed. The three Luxor pump setup is engraved and, with the help of the eight-battery power source, activates the 8-inch cylinders up front and 14-inchers in the rear. As you can see in the photographs, virtually everything that was removable was chromed, thanks to Imperial Plating in Hialeah, Florida. The final chassis mod was the 10-switch box that gives the car all of the moves.
Tires: P155/80-R13 Champion
Wheels: OG wires with alternating candy teal and gold-plated spokes
