Hey guys my name is Alex Hooten and I am the Speed Shop Manager at the Pep Boys Temecula location. I remember growing up and tinkering with my dad's old 57' oval window VW and from there I was hooked. We began by rebuilding this car with some obvious performance upgrades (I.E. Scat Longblock 2378 assembly, IDA 52 Carbs, scat single exit exhaust, Empi 5 spoke wheels, etc.). When we finished that car, I was already in my teens. At that point, my Dad helped me buy my first car which happened to be a 1972 VW Beetle. I originally put a dual port 1600 bored to a 1776 with a set of IDF Dual 40's. From there, I dropped a T3/T04 hybrid turbo and sleeved the bottom end. Well I ended up turning this bug into a drag car, I pulled the 1776 out; tossed in a 3200 Porsche twin 62mm Garrett turbos, everything went great until the motor blew up about three weeks back ( second weekend in May 2014). In the process of this car, I've built 6 Chevrolet's, 2 Ford's and 2 Mopar's. (Both small and big blocks). I just finished another race car; it's a 64' Nova with twin turbo Big Block Chevrolet, CPP front end, Currie Enterprises Rear End, and a custom driveline by Driveline Inc out of Mission Viejo. I can't wait to meet you whether it's if you wanna chat or if you wanna build that car of your dreams!
