Bob Bertelsen's OPTIMA®-equipped Brute Force Camaro
If the name "Bob Bertelsen" sounds familiar, it should. Back in 2010, Bob competed in the OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational with his 1972 Pontiac Firebird. Bob has created another beastly F-body, he calls "Brute Force" and you can be sure he is looking to make a return appearance with it in the OUSCI.
Bob completed the car on the Thursday before the Goodguys show in Columbus and with almost no miles on the car, he ran very competitively in the autocross. Although he was not a finalist for Street Machine of the Year, he was named a finalist for the Muscle Machine of the Year.
Popular Hotrodding magazine also photographed Bob's car for an upcoming feature story, so stay tuned! We have a feeling we'll be seeing more of this amazing machine!
