James Reeve Returns 2011 Road Atlanta
The return to racing of Yenko Stinger racing legend James J. Reeve Jr. Back in the mid 70's James was a thorn in the side of the British and Datsun factory teams. James in his 1966 Yenko Stinger Corvair running as a privateer was able to beat the likes Group 44, Huffaker and Datsun factory backed teams in SCCA D-Production road racing at the national championship level. I offered my Yenko Stinger Corvair for James to drive in the 2011 Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR) annual Mitty race at Road Atlanta the weekend of April 29-May 1. James certainly didn't disappoint us Corvair types this weekend. We were only beaten by a very well driven, and fast, Lotus Super 7 driven by Bill Bartlett also from Atlanta. Thanks again James.

132757 / 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Yenko
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/6sr3rle You can't argue that the '69 Camaro wasn't one of the best-looking pony cars of all time, and the Yenko treatment only made it better. This one is dressed appropriately as a base V8 Camaro with full Yenko regalia and a simple ducktail spoiler. A cowl induction hood was added, along with a cool chin spoiler, and the Lemans Blue paint is the perfect combination of subtle and stunning. Rendered in two-stage urethane, it has a soft glow to it that only seems to emphasize the Yenko's power and attitude. Before the Yenko stripes went on, the entire body was color sanded and buffed for a spectacular shine that really makes the white stripes pop. But let's be honest, the only reason you want a Yenko lives under the hood. In this case, it's a correct iron block 427 cubic inch mill dressed like the factory would have done, plus a few upgrades. There's Chevy Orange paint on the block, a correct open element air cleaner with '427 turbo-Jet 425 horsepower' decals, and OEM chrome valve covers, which were standard equipment on big block Camaros. Upgrades include a big Holley carburetor atop an Edelbrock intake, some positively huge long-tube headers, and an HEI ignition system to light the fires. There's almost no sign of usage anywhere under the hood, and the level of detailing will make you want to pop the lid every time you park the car. Although you could get a Yenko with an automatic, a vast majority were equipped with Muncie M21 4-speeds like the one in this car. Out back, there's a correct 12-bolt with 3.73 gears and a Posi. That massive dual Exhaust system features Flowmaster mufflers that sound like God's own V8 is under the hood, and subframe connectors have been added to keep the body tub solid behind all that power. Power disc brakes, a new gas tank, and fresh KYB shocks at all four corners keep it planted. Cool American Racing Torque Thrust wheels give it a period performance look that's just as cool as steelies and dog dish hubcaps, and wear a set of performance radials. Fresh black seat covers, new door panels, and correct carpets give it an OEM feel, plus those sYc decals on the front seat headrests (and yes, they were decals on the originals, too). This one also has a beautifully restored center console, complete with Hurst shifter and cue ball knob, not to mention some beautifully reproduced wood appliques. A reproduction rosewood steering wheel helps warm up the interior, and bringing the Lemans Blue paint into the car on the steering column and glove box lid is a cool touch. A new AM/FM/CD stereo system has been installed, because this is a car you're going to want to drive and there's no point to absolute originality in this car. A new set of Chevrolet logo floor mats were dropped in, and the trunk features a proper mat, spare, and jack assembly. If an SS is just too ordinary, and you really dig the appeal of those magic three numbers, 427, then perhaps a Yenko is just what you need. Building one to this level will cost a lot more than the sticker price here, and even if you started today, it would be more than a year until it was done. No, if you've got a big block jones, the only thing you need is this Yenko. Driving is what tributes like this do best.

132961 / 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Yenko
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/76q69tb If you're one of the growing number of enthusiasts who wants to actually enjoy the performance, look, and value of the storied Yenko name, this '69 Camaro is your opportunity to forgo the time, headache and six figure cost of building one yourself. There's no question that the '69 Camaro is one of the best looking muscle cars of all time. Throw in a slick coat of correct GM code 72 Hugger Orange paint and an authentic race-inspired Yenko decal kit, and it becomes one seriously lust-worthy piece of automotive art. Naturally, all this car's top notch eye candy rides on a clean and arrow straight body which presents solid, dent-free panels with better-than-new fit and super narrow gaps. And its rugged two-stage urethane provides the kind of dynamic finish and glossy shine that will emphasize the car's power and attitude for years to come. Lift this Camaro's bright orange hood and you'll find a date correct iron block 427 which has been restored to a highly accurate, showroom fresh appearance. At the top of that block air flows from a correct open element air cleaner, which is adorned with a new 427 cross-flag decal, into a coated Holley 4-barrel carburetor and a modern aluminum Chevrolet intake manifold. At the sides of that intake, spectacular finned aluminum valve covers hang multi-colored Yenko emblems above fully restored cast iron Exhaust manifolds. And at the back of those valve covers, a rebuilt points distributor sends fire through correct Packard TV R Suppression wires. Cooling is provided by a Yenko-spec Harrison heavy duty radiator which sends water through reproduction GM hoses and fresh tower clamps. And, since this Camaro came with factory equipped power steering and power disc brakes, an appropriately tagged Delco Moraine brake Booster hangs on the firewall and a correct power steering pump is bolted to the left side of the engine block. Although you could get a Yenko with a slushbox, the vast majority were equipped with tough M21 Muncie 4-speeds. And this particular Camaro, which has been upgraded with a virtually indestructible Borg Warner ST-10, spins a correct 12 bolt Posi-traction rear end and tire shredding 3.90 gears via a correctly detailed driveshaft. That rear end hangs on restored leaf springs and brand new shocks which help give the car its crouching stance; and that transmission rides just behind a restored double A-arm front suspension which features fresh shocks, correct factory optioned power steering and correct factory optioned power disc brakes. At the center of the car, a thrill inducing soundtrack roars through a fresh Gardner Exhaust system which accurately duplicates the car's original chambered pipes. And at the corners of the car, era correct 15 inch American Racing Torque Thrust D wheels wear a fresh set of E70-15 Goodyear Wide Tread GTs. Inside this pristine Yenko tribute, it's 100% Camaro; and that's always a good thing! Original GM code 713 Black Houndstooth upholstery features an OEM feel that simply can't be duplicated by today's best restoration products. An optional Z87 deluxe interior package, which includes unique stainless trimmed door panels, wood grain dash applique and bright pedal trim, amps up the visual appeal. And bold "YSC" headrest decals provide just the right amount of detail to elevate an already impressive cockpit to a whole new level. In front of the driver, a good looking black dash hangs beautifully restored gauges, an electric clock and controls for the cars heater above bright wood grain trim and a correct Delco AM radio. Below that dash, an optional center console props a completely chrome Hurst short throw shifter above great looking wood faced and chrome trimmed accent plates. And at the sides of the seats, black deluxe door panels are decorated with excellent looking stainless trim and correct white inlayed "Camaro" emblems. Connecting the driver to the road is a fully restored factory steering wheel which spins a blue bowtie and great looking wood applique around a factory tilt steering column. If a Super Sport is just too ordinary and you really dig the magical appeal of that storied 4, 2, and 7 number combination, this high quality Yenko is just what you need!

Corvair Engine Rebuild
A Corvair Engine is put together





1965 Corvair Corsa with a Crown Engineering V8 conversion
I have owned this car since the early 1980's. It was a lifetime dream to own and build this car. This car is beautiful. From a distance it appears as a stock Corvair with a few modifications. However, it is far from stock. This car is also not a luxury car. It is more in the lines of a race car for the street. The car has been driven less than 200 miles during my ownership. The body was completely restored about 10 years ago. The body panels were replaced with fiberglass panels. The only steel that remains on the car is the doors, rear cove, and roof. The wheel wells, trunk area and floors have all been done in aluminum. The engine is a small block Chevy from a 1966 Chevy II factory rated at 275 hp. The car has been sitting for a few years and does have a few small leaks. I did just replace the carburetors with new Holley 600 with vacuum secondaries. It has a Saginaw 4 speed. One last thing, It's FAST!
