Profile

Schwartz Performance - they sure did get the name right. In fact if we had to suggest a humble, modest graphic tweak to their logo it would be: Schwartz PERFORMANCE!!

You see founder Jeff Schwartz, former GT1 Corvette and IMAS Camaro racer, has always obsessed over delivering superior real world track performance on every one of his shop’s builds. Jeff, his son Dale and their merry Woodstock, Illinois crew are the magicians that can take any street car (and we do mean any) and transform it into and autocross corner crusher, a drag strip pavement pounder, a road course rocket ride - all the while maintaining perfect street manners.

How about a completely stock looking ’82 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham - an enormous 5000 lb. boat of a vehicle to begin with - that runs 11’s at the strip and can generate 1.02g’s on the skid pad. Or a twin-turbo Ultima GTR that can run 145 mph in the quarter and 211 mph in the standing mile. We’re talking SERIOUS jaw dropping performance here.

Most of their builds include their own proprietary, track proven chassis that they build in house and are widely recognized for their unsurpassed edge in performance, recently garnering Car Craft magazine’s Pro Builder of the Year award with an 1800 HP ’67 Malibu and Popular Hot Rodding magazine’s Muscle Car of the Year with a twin-turbo ’81 Trans Am.

When you meet Jeff, you meet someone with a split personality - on the outside a quiet, unassuming, friendly and modest person, but in the inside an extremely driven motorhead competitor that will never ever settle for just running with the pack!

Neat ride. The sad thing is that most car shows do not give an award to the orphan class. I have some friends that have some very nice off brands that do not take them to shows. They say it is not worth going to all the trouble of showing it. That's why you usually see GM, Ford, Mopar only at the shows. I personally like seeing Packard, Studebaker, Geo, Nash, and most of the out of business makes also at shows. Very unfair in my opinion and it denies the public the chance to see the other brands fixed up and restored.

Evan Lipe That's going to be one sick handling Stude

Cool project , not cougar cool , but still cool. Hahaha

Finished Jrs LS3 assembly today, going in the 1956 Pontiac Safari wagon project. We painted the engine body color, added a sheet metal intake & billet rails, and a billet front accessory system. Well be swapping valve covers to match the intake closer to completion.

Nice... what pulley system is that?

That's a name you can trust!

I would love to have that in one of your chassis with an L 80 E trans for my 56 Nomad. If the IRS and State Franchise tax board did not take all my money, I would of ordered that set up.

I'd love to slap that in my 92' Camaro 😊
