A group of spectators look over the Burgundy Baron, a 1965 GTO rebuilt so the chassis is backwards in correlation to the drivetrain. The car, purchased brand new by Les Schwenk when he was 22, has been street legal to drive backwards since 1983 after a decade of drag racing. Schwenk said he frequently attends car shows and his backwards muscle car always draws a crowd. “Every show I go to I keep thinking ‘everybody’s seen this. Everybody knows about it,’” he said. “Then I’ll pull up and all of a sudden people say ‘man, that’s the first time I’ve ever seen this!’”
