Blastro is a blown, alky swilling, tube-chassis version of a Chevy Astro van. It’s bat poop crazy and we love it. After dropping the video of the A-Team van on you yesterday we needed a little van follow-up. While it may not be the quickest thing ever to head down a strip, and calling it a Pro Mod is only mildly accurate, we love the hell out of this van. BA Baracus would approve!
We’ve known about this machine for some time, but it slipped our minds until the other day. Tom Richey is the man behind the van and he hails from Westerville, Ohio. We don’t know if it is wedge or hemi headed, but from the sounds of it, the van is making some serious snot. Our research says that the brick is capable of 4-second ETs in the eighth-mile. That’s hauling ass.
It is also capable of amazing burnouts, as the video below clearly demonstrates!
