1967 Yenko Camaro RS SS Resto Mod 427 553 Horse Power
www.e-motorclassics.com AAMC's 1967 Yenko Camaro RS/SS is a highly restored
replication of an original Yenko, built and certified by All American
Muscle Cars, Ltd. (AAMC). The Original Camaro 1967-1969 Restorer's Guide
and interviews with other Yenko owners were used for reference in the
building of the AAMC 1967 Yenko Camaro RS/SS. Jim Stubbing, who
is a dealer in all original Camaro OEM parts was our main
source for obtaining most of the original Yenko parts used on our Yenko Camaro. These premium
priced components include the original OEM Yenko Stinger hood and all 427
and Yenko badging.
Built with all new technology and performance and packaged within a totally
restored replication of a 1967 Yenko Camaro. The AAMC 1967 Yenko Camaro RS/SS replica is
built with utmost attention to original detail. What makes this vehicle
unique is the blend of originality with new modern technology and
performance. The powertrain, drivetrain, and chassis are not original but
instead re-engineered with the latest technology, performance, and handling
that you would find in today's late model high performance vehicles. All
the new components are engineered to closely model the original part
appearance as it was in its original state with only minor modifications
where performance improvements were made.
The exterior and interior looks appear original with the exception of
different wheels and brakes. All the interior touch points appear original
except for the digital gauge display housed in the original I/P cluster.
Other than those enhancements, this vehicle looks stock. The intent was to
introduce the technology where needed without taking away from the
originality. Once you strap yourself in and take a test drive all bets are
off that you are driving an original 1967 Yenko Camaro but instead a 2005 modern
day version of an all new Yenko Camaro that looks original but
will outperform most late model performance cars.

1968 Plymouth Barracuda 426 Hemi Under the Hood
www.e-motorclassics.com Hemi Engine History
A Chrysler Hemi engine is one of three different internal combustion engine
families from the Chrysler Corporation that are Hemi engines; in other
words, they utilize a hemispherical combustion chamber. A hemispherical
cylinder head allows the valves to be inline rather than side-by-side,
which gives a straighter, simpler airflow path, allows large valves, and
gives greater efficiency. The hemi design places the sparkplug in the
center, giving more even ignition.
The advantages of the hemi cylinder head come at the disadvantage of
requiring intake and Exhaust valve
stems that point in different directions, requiring much more complicated
rocker arm setups in overhead valve engines. These also increase the space
taken up by the cylinder head; Hemi engines are not space-efficient.
The hemispherical head designed engines were the first engines in 1964 to
officially use the "Hemi" name, a word Chrysler trademarked. All Chrysler
Hemi engines of the 1960s displaced 426 in³ (7.0 L). Although just 11,000
Hemi engines were produced for consumer sale, the engine became legendary,
with "Hemi" becoming one of the most familiar automobile-related words in
the United States. The 426 Hemi was nicknamed the "elephant engine" at the
time, a reference to its far-from-compact dimensions and extraordinary
SLANT 6 Mopar or No Car!
Mopars and very attractive women.....Mopars Kicking ASS! What more can you
If you like what you hear, come and visit me at CDBaby!
In case anyone is curious, yes, I've owned tons of Mopar products! There
is a SRT4 in my driveway right now. I've had Coronet R/T's, Challenger RT,
Demon's, 300's, SRT8's, I love em all! And I have no problem with other
cool Musclecars. I even own a Buick with a V6 that is fairly
quick......However....I loves me Mother Mopar!
I'm back in the old school! I have a "NEW" 70 Coronet R/T! Burnt
Orange/White interior numbers matching, bla bla bla bla!!! Will post pics

Actually 2 tunes. One, I penned back in the mid 80's called Red Light. It
was about my 69 R/T.
Triple Black Attack: 1970 440 6-Pack 'Cuda - /BIG MUSCLE
Each and every muscle car enthusiast has that one experience that has
helped define the way in which they view the automobile. For Northern
California's John Cross that experience came by way of riding in the back
of his cousins 1970 440 6-Pack Plymouth 'Cuda when he was a kid. It was a
car that provided him with memories, stories and of course, a goal - that
being, to one day own the very car which got his engine running all those
years ago. It's now 2012, 42 years after that first faithful ride in the
very 'Cuda you're about to see. This time however it resides in John's
garage, not his cousins, which can mean only one thing... Sometimes dreams
do come true.
1967 Formula S Plymouth Barracuda - Redefining Mopar muscle cars
This black 1967 Formula S Plymouth Barracuda is a driver's car and owner
John Rocks proudly displays it at local car shows. John refers to his work
as a restofication, meaning that it may not be a number 1 show car but it
looks almost as good as new. John is an expert in Mopars and ells the story
about how he worked on Mopars as a young man and we show pictures of his
original 1967 convertible Plymouth Barracuda. We also get a peak at his
white 1967 Plymouth Barracuda coupe. The contrast of these two cars sitting
side by side is pretty special. Hang in there and take an afternoon drive
with John as he shows off the cornering performance of his black Formula S
Plymouth Barracuda. The white Barracuda is not too happy about it but you
can only drive one car at a time.
This video includes the use of a camera jib (crane) for some incredibly
smooth shots. The use of the GoPro was a learning experience as this was
the first time we used it to capture some scenes of John and his car
speeding around corners. This is one videographer that had to hold on tight
and some of the footage was not usable as I went flying around in my seat.
Enjoy the Ride,

This striking '71 'Cuda pro-tourer, with its 605 cubic inch Hemi V8, fully
custom suspension and sleek leather interior, is perfect for the muscle car
fan who wants the best of absolutely everything!
The beneficiary of a professional, frame-off restoration that was completed
by the owners of Lakeside Rods and Customs in Rockwell City, Iowa, this
slick Plymouth super star features a seamless custom appearance that's
highlighted by an immaculate coat of matte-finish paint. The team's plan
was to create a car that was unlike anything they'd ever built. And this
gnarly pro-tourer, decked in PPG Dark Titanium, detailed in a striking
combination of black, orange and silver, and finished in PPG Flex N' Flat
clear, ended up the perfect cross between a '70s drag car and a modern
When this sinister 'Cuda rumbled into the showroom, it caused such a
commotion that our entire staff came out of their offices just to check it
out. And when we lifted the hood and found a 605 cubic inch Indy Street
Legend Hemi that produces an amazing 850 horsepower and a stunning
790 lb./ft. of torque, we certainly weren't disappointed! At the top of
that Maxx aluminum block, a custom shaker forces wind through a reusable
filter element into a giant King Demon carburetor that's cinched to a
ported intake and fresh stainless fuel lines. At the sides of that intake,
Indy 426 heads, which have been fitted with high quality roller rockers and
clean stainless valves, hang slick orange covers over an Indy-supplied
rotating assembly that includes Wiseco 10.75 to 1 pistons, Eagle H-beam
connecting rods, a Callies 4340 crank, ARP bolts and a Comp roller cam. At
the sides of that rotating assembly, black long-tube headers swirl spent
gases into a rowdy true dual Exhaust
system. At the front of those headers, a familiar Billet Specialties Tru
Trac system spins a chrome Powermaster alternator above a polished Billet
Specialties power steering pump. And the big motor's fires are lit by a
Painless Wiring harness that utilizes an MSD 6AL ignition system to spark
an MSD coil, a color-keyed MSD Pro-Billet distributor and high performance
MSD plug wires.
Behind that high-octane engine, you'll find a TCI-supplied Powerglide
that's wrapped in a Reid Racing case. That stalwart 2-speed spins a custom
driveshaft that's hooked to a Ford nine inch Traction-Lok rear end, tall
3.73 gears and Strange 31-spline axles. As you can probably tell from our
pictures, that rock-solid drivetrain is suspended by a custom Art Morrison
MaxG chassis that's fitted with a Corvette C6 front clip, a Corvette C6
sway bar, a Watt's Link rear clip and Strange coil over shocks. And power
flows to the pavement through a slick set of custom Intro wheels that spin
245/40ZR18 and 335/30ZR20 Pirelli P Zeros around chrome lug nuts and
Inside this stunning Mopar you'll find a completely custom interior that's
tight, technological and in excellent condition. The firm seats,
custom-stitched suede and leather units that are equipped with RCI Camlock
harnesses, feel comfortable enough to spend a sunny afternoon in. In front
of those seats, a custom, Lakeside-built dash hangs a sweet set of Classic
Instruments Velocity gauges above Large Rockford Fosgate speakers and small
Rockford Fosgate tweeters. And the car's driver stays connected to the road
via a painted tilt steering column that's complete with stylized stalks and
a sporty Momo Nero wheel.
In summary, this killer Plymouth pro-tourer represents creative engineering
at its very finest, combining stunning design and execution with
no-excuses, no-limits performance. Call, click or visit
