1969 Camaro ZL1 on Dyno
~~~Please Read Description~~~
I UPLOADED THIS FOR MY DAD, I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE CAR. SORRY.
Engine ZL1 427 all aluminum, pro top line head, comp cam, 1000 cfm holley,
5 speed tremec, 411 gear.
TWO PULLS: 1st pull inconclusive. Tires spun on rollers. 2nd pull,
tightened ties some more. Pull was better, but tires still spun (that's
the blue smoke)
I guess stock poly glass doesn't work with all this power. Will try again
with slicks on.
1969 Camaro RS/SS First Start up in 28 Years
Work on getting my dads new project car, a 69 Camaro started after sitting for
28 years untouched and uncovered in an Anchorage, Alaska back yard. It was
originally a big block/4speed car but was swapped to a 327 in the early
80's. The engine was covered in leafs, moss and debris and had no air
cleaner, headers or half the spark plugs when we got it. The car has been
parked since 1984, watch to see if we get it going! Don't pay any
attention to the Z28 badges someone added those long ago and it was
originally Daytona Yellow not white. More details coming soon....
Big Red Camaro vs. 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28
In February 2014, Hot Rod Magazine invited the Big Red Camaro out to face off against
Chevrolet's new 2014 Z-28 Camaro. Big Red has never been
one to back down from a challenge and to pit the Generation 1 Camaro against the new Generation
5 was too good an opportunity to pass up. The Big Red team braved one of
the worst ice storms on record and made the trip out to the Barber
Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama to attend the challenge. With the
freezing temperatures came poor track conditions, and the new Z/28 had a
huge advantage with all its modern traction control systems - Big Red had
her work cut out for her. Unfortunately the less than ideal conditions held
Big Red back from reaching her full potential in what would be a classic
duel on a truly great road course, but she still managed to give her
descendant one hell of a run for its money.
A big thanks to Hot Rod Magazine, Chevrolet and Barber Motorsports Park for
the opportunity to come out and strut our stuff!

The Big Red Camaro was
originally built in 1987 by father and son team, Dan and RJ Gottlieb. The
car began as an all stock 1969 Chevrolet Camaro and became a very highly
modified muscle machine revered and well-known for its stunning
performances in "flat out" open road racing. The original car was destroyed
in an accident in the La Carrera Road Race in 1988, as the stock chassis
was unable to handle the stresses of cornering the heavy car under the
conditions and massive power output. "Big Red" was then rebuilt by the
late, great race car builder Bill Osborne with the original stock '69 body
and a spaceframe tube chassis, as well as a 1,000 plus horse power engine
built by Larry Mollicone. This is the car that went on to win accolades and
trophies at both the La Carrera Classic and Silver State Classic Challenge
throughout the late 80's, catching the world's attention, scoring features
in numerous car magazines, and made a name for itself among muscle car and
race enthusiasts. Big Red was retired in 1996 to a car museum, and revived
for racing again in 2004. Big Red continues to live up to the title of "The
Baddest '69 Camaro
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.
