600WHP Pro Touring Gen II Camaro by Chevy Girl

August 17th, 2022

If this clip has you wondering whether to look at the car or the girl, don’t feel bad. Laura (aka Chevy Girl) and Olive (the Camaro) are both outstanding specimens in their own right. Although, you might want to consider that the Camaro doesn’t talk and it sure sings a pretty song. This is a 1973 Chevrolet Camaro with a split-bumper (1970.5) front clip. The exterior and interior are basically stock. Even the color is from a 1969 Camaro. It’s called Fathom Green (she thinks). Detroit Digital gauges and Vintage Air climate control round out the interior. Inside and out, Read More

Fast Lane Jane’s LS3 Swapped 1964 Corvette Restomod

July 27th, 2022

Greetings fellow auto enthusiasts. Meet Fast Lane Jane and her bodacious 1964 Chevrolet Corvette. Jane is so much more than a pretty face. She is a serious driver with a competitive streak as wide as the Mississippi River. Believe me when I tell you, she’s in it to win it – whatever “it” is. Jane’s Corvette has been artfully upgraded with an LS3 V8 engine block bored out to 416 cubic-inches and loaded with a SCAT forged rotating assembly (crankshaft and connecting rods). With all the bells and whistles, this naturally aspirated V8 is making 596hp and 610 lb.-ft. of Read More

July 1st, 2022

Is that diesel smoke or shredded tires that I see? Fact is that it might be both on this monster of a diesel powered F1 race truck by Scott Birdsall. What started out as a $225 beater has morphed into this showstopping diesel powerhouse. Shall we take a closer look? Under the hood of this Pike’s Peak Record holding 1949 Ford F1 is a 6.7-liter Cummins diesel engine built by Freedom Racing Engines. It has upgraded internals and a compound turbo setup that yields 100psi of boost. This combination is good for 1400HP and an astounding 2100 lb.-ft. of torque. Read More

630HP Restomod 1965 Corvette Widebody

May 14th, 2022

Our boy Shawn (from Autotopia) has done it again. He located this crazy 1965 Chevy Corvette with a widened body (6-inches) sitting on a nearly stock chassis modified to accept a C4 front suspension. In the rear, we have an independent torque-arm design with a Dana 44 Trac Loc differential. The Forgeline wheels are 18-inch (12.5-inch rear, 11.5-inch front) This is a car that is equally suited for the dragstrip or the autocross course. The engine is a Lingenfelter built LS7 7.0-liter all-aluminum dry sump V8 capable of producing 630hp. By the way, it’s naturally aspirated. The 3-inch exhaust system Read More

August 11th, 2021

Once again Shawn from Autotopia LA is showing us the goods. This time it’s a 1962 Chevrolet “Bubble Top” Bel Air. Make no mistake, this ain’t your typical Heavy Chevy.

This classic Chevy has everything it needs to make it look beautifully vintage – but perform like brand new. Have a look. Under the bonnet is a genuine work of art. The supercharged LS9 (6.2-liter) engine is capable of delivering 650hp to the rear wheels through a Bowler prepped Read More

1100HP TT Camaro Takes On Pikes Peak

July 14th, 2021

An event that can undoubtedly be described as one of the most dangerous experiences in racing, the Pike’s Peak Hill Climb attracts some of the most sophisticated and capable machines in existence. The DuSold Designs Camaro, piloted by Tommy Boileau, is one such craft. There was a time when vintage muscle cars were considered impractical for road racing. The theory was that these heavy hitters should be relegated to straight line endeavors. Not so these days. The invent of tubular chassis, aluminum alloy suspension members and heavy-duty brake kits allow these beautiful old cars to compete with late model racecraft. Read More

Autocross Club Equipe Rapide (ER) severs ties with SCCA

June 28th, 2007

Written by: Carl Couric As some of you may or may not know, the SCCA board has decided to cut all ties with Equipe Rapide and not honor the contract they agreed to at the beginning of the year. My first reaction was to think of how this affects all SCCA members, especially the Florida Region autocrossers, and it made me angry. All I could see was SCCA Florida Region’s board was being short sighted again. I then looked at it from a simple business standpoint, and from an ER perspective, I said “Thank you! More money and freedom for Read More
