Twin Turbo 1968 Camaro "MotiV8r" Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Larry Callahan runs the website Pro-Touring.com,
and his own twin turbocharged 1968 Camaro is a textbook
example of the kinds of cars the website is built around. The "MotiV8r"
Camaro features every
pro-touring trick in the book, and was built by Prodigy Customs to run as
good as it looks. Video from the 2009 Optima Ultimate Street Car
Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational
November, 7th, the day after the 2009 SEMA show, 40 of the worlds ultimate
street cars gather at Spring Mountain Raceway for the Optima Ultimate
Street Car Invitational presented by RideTech. These cars were built for a
wide range of reasons, but they were at the track in Pahrump for one reason
- to be driven!
Clean LS7 Camaro Has All The Pro-Touring Tricks V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - This '69 Camaro convertible looks
unassuming enough, but don't let it fool you. Underneath that shiny blue
paint hides all the latest pro-touring tricks, from the Detroit Speed &
Engineering subframe to the GM LS7 V8 engine. Owner Matt Gober tells us
that G-Force Design Concepts built this car with the goal of blending a
stock appearance with killer street and track performance, and it looks
like they've succeeded. Shot at the 2007 Run Through The Hills event.
Clean 1973 Camaro Z28 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Tommy Parker's 1973 Camaro Z28 is a great example of
how to build a clean car with smart parts to end up with a strong performer
with razor-sharp looks. Tommy used a GM Crate motor, Baer brakes, and
some trick suspension goodies to start with, then added a new Twist Machine
Pro Torque torque converter which creates a manual transmission feel with
an auto. Watch the video to see how.
1969 Mark Stielow's 1969 Camaro "Red Devil" Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Mark Stielow builds musclecars that truly raise
the bar. The latest, "Red Devil," is a supercharged 427 that makes tons
of power but retains new-car drivability. The complete Detroit Speed
suspension system helps it stick to the road. It's no wonder this car won
the 2010 Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational event!
1966 Chevelle Autocross Pro Touring V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - This 1966 Chevelle built by the Roadster Shop
features their new pro-touring style frame, upgraded Detroit Speed
suspension parts, huge tires, and big block Chevy powered. We shot it at
the Run Through The Hills III event in Pigeon Forge, TN., tearing up the
autocross course. This segment is taken from the hour-long V8TV Run
Through The Hills DVD.
Roadster Shop RSC1 Corvette OUSCI Track Thrash V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - The Roadster Shop builds some killer cars, and
they were recently out beating up one of their most amazing creations, the
RSC1 Corvette. Starting life as a 1962 Corvette, the Roadster Shop crew
transformed every piece of this car into a slick high-tech version of the
timeless C1 Corvette. Starting with a complete new RS Performance
chassis, they added a GM LS7 engine, Kinsler EFI, giant brakes, and all the
right parts to make it stop, go, and turn. Then they reworked every panel
on the car, added a custom interior, and started winning awards. We think
the best part is that this car gets driven hard on road course and
autocross tracks. This interview was shot at the 2009 Optima Ultimate
Street Car Invitational, and is part of an upcoming DVD of the event.

LMC Super Cuda 200 MPH!
log onto www.legendarymotorcar.com to see photos of the build!
Lady Luck was on our side last week as the Legendary Team made its way to
the Chrysler Proving Grounds in Chelsea, Michigan.
An all night drive through a snow storm saw us pull into the proving
grounds parking lot at the crack of dawn. It was cold and overcast but no
sign of rain or snow. It looked like the weather would cooperate, the next
hurdle was having MOPAR engineers check out the Cuda. The car passed with
flying colors, testament to the sweat and dedication put in by everyone at
Legendary over the last year.
Then it was off to the black lake for some real world handling tests in
preparation for the 4.75 mile oval and a crack a breaking the 200 mph mark.
Both the Cuda and the Enzo look impressive on the track but once the sun
began to come out late that morning the setting was perfect for our high
speed run. I think we captured some spectacular footage of a once in a life
After a brief mishap, when the Cuda lost its windshield trim at 190 mph,
Peter was ready to go. We could hear the Cuda coming long before we could
see her, as the cars went by they sounded like jet fighters. Top speed 208
mph with still some leftwe did it!
