Test Driving 1967 Chevrolet Camaro 502 Big-Block Restomod - Fast Lane Classic Cars
I thought you'd like a look at this awesome 1967 Chevrolet Camaro. This beast is powered by
a ZZ502 Big-block crate engine, that's pushing out 502 HP and 567 LbFt of
Torque. All that power is being funneled through a Centerforce clutch, to
a Borg Warner T10 four-speed, and then back to a 12 bolt rear with 3.55
gears. This car has all the performance you need and then some. It's also a
beautifully restored car, from the ultra slick black exterior with SS trim,
to the completely restored houndstooth interior. It's also equipped with
front disc brakes, Eagle Alloy wheels, and BF Goodrich ZR speed rated
tires. This car goes, turns, and stops amazingly well. I hope you find it
interesting...thanks for taking a look!

as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to

JCG Restorations 1968 Camaro -- /BIG MUSCLE
Tucked away in a small industrial park in Oxnard, CA sits JCG Restorations
& Customs, a moderately sized shop that has built some of the best
performing pro-touring cars that we've ever driven. Now generally we don't
focus in on shops, however when the owners of three of our best test cars
start dropping names, we tend to listen. Originally we descended on JCG to
drive Blu Balz, a stunning 1968 Camaro owned by one Karl Dunn.
However since Mother Nature decided to water the Earth that day, we put our
original plans on hold and got shop owner Cris Gonzalez to give us the in's
and out's of what it takes to make a stellar pro-touring car.

Pro-touring is one of the fastest-growing segments in the muscle car hobby
today. For those of you not familiar with the concept, pro-touring embraces
taking a vintage muscle car and upgrading its mechanicals so that it can
brake, corner, and accelerate like a modern sports car, and still maintain
creature comforts we take for granted in our new cars. Essentially, a
pro-touring car is the best of all worlds: looks, comfort, and performance.
This '67 Camaro is an
outstanding example of the pro-touring concept. It retains the timeless
good looks of the first-year Chevy pony car and updates the 40-year-old
mechanicals with 21st century performance. Every aspect of the car has been
honed and polished, from the 572 cubic-inch big block under the hood to the
killer sound system. There's so much work in this car that it would take
days to describe all of it. I'll try to cover the major items, but until
you see this car in the flesh, you won't be able to fully appreciate how
truly spectacular it is.
The first thing you notice is how slick and smooth it looks. That early Camaro shape is about as
timeless as you can get, and this car shows you why. The beautiful orange
paint with flat black stripes puts quite a glow on that shapely vintage
sheet-metal. The body panels on this car are straight, rust free and have a
beautiful fit. The undercarriage is no exception, you will find it the same
condition as the body, super solid and rust free.
Pro-touring isn't merely about big wheels and low-profile tires, it's about
getting a combination that delivers sports car levels of performance and
still looks killer on the car. Because pro-touring is about making the car
work better, this Camaro was given 4 wheel
drilled/slotted power disc brakes, and a 3:36 posi rear end. The Boyd
Codington wheels are paired up with Nitto tires, and you're going to need
all that tire, too. Under the steel hood are 572 cubic inches of GM big
block power. Rated at 620 horsepower, this Camaro absolutely screams. The
entire engine is highly detailed, and features a BeCool radiator, Billett
pulleys, 2 ¼ ceramic coated Dynatec headers, a Demon carb and HEI
ignition. People line up 3 deep to get a look at this engine compartment.
Lots of go, lots of show.
You need to be fast with the shifter on top of the M20 manual 4 speed
transmission, because 1st gear is over before you can get your foot on the
floor, the tires are going up in smoke, and the car is lunging ahead. Go
ahead and power-shift second; the Hurst shifter makes it easy to find the
right slot. By the time you're in third, you're grinning like a mental
patient and the car is closing in on triple digits. Not even the hairiest
Camaros of the '60s --
Yenkos, COPOs, whatever -- were this scary fast, and none did it with so
much control. Pro-touring is still all about speed, but it's also about
precision, and this car has both bases completely covered.
No car can be respectfully called pro-touring without an interior upgrade,
and this car showcases what can be done with a little imagination and a lot
of cash. The front seats are new buckets, and the rear bench was made to
match. The dash is full of Autometer Ultra-Lite gauges behind a Grant
wheel. You will also find a Clarion receiver hooked up to a Clarion CD
changer in the trunk. All of the sound comes through a trunk mounted Kicker
amplifier and subwoofers, with Kicker speakers mounted in the door panels.
So if people want to talk pro-touring, use this car as your guide to how to
do it right. It's about the total package and reengineering every system in
the car to make it accelerate quicker, turn sharper, stop harder, and do it
all while being more comfortable to drive than any stock muscle car ever
could be. Judging by the amount of work on this car and its incredible
performance, there's just no way you could build this car yourself for what
we're asking. The fact that someone else has already made the investment
and done the heavy lifting for you means all you have to do is come and
drive it. I guarantee that's all you need. Give me a call today

Took advantage of my buddies HD camera, and filmed my car running mildly
on the streets of Los Angeles. Needs a nice paint job. Going with a pro
touring look; hence 18/20 TTII's and a brand new speed tech suspension QA1
adjustable Afco shocks all corners.
