1968 Camaro SS "Reloaded" Final Feature Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com/reloaded - The 1968 Camaro "Reloaded" is on the
streets, and we're quite happy with the end result. The car drives and
handles better than it ever did thanks to the Detroit Speed suspension and
the FAST EZ-EFI fuel injected 490 inch big block Chevy engine built by Fast
Times Motorworks. The TCI 4L80E overdrive transmission shifts firmly and
is programmable thanks to the EZ-TCU controller. It sounds great thanks
to the MagnaFlow Exhaust, and the
overall look is crisp and contemporary thanks to the BASF Silver Bullet and
Gunsmoke stripes. Loads of Classic Industries restoration parts make the
car look new, and the Vintage Air keeps the occupants nice and cool going
down the road. The Comp Thumpr cam rumbles, and the MSD Igntiion lights
it off with ease. Reloaded has won awards at every show it's been to, but
it ws built to be driven! Contact us at www.v8speedshop.com to find out
how we can build one for you!

shock kit, new quick ratio steering components, and is installed into the
stock Camaro subframe.
