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.

Raw Vintage Trans Am Racing at the 2010 Coronado Speed Festival
3 minutes and 34 seconds of raw and Shaky video of Historic Trans Am Racing
(group 9) at the 2010 Coronado Speed Festival. Footage was taken next to
the wall at turn 9. If you're looking for quality footage, this isn't it.
But, even the best footage couldn't convey the brutal awesomeness of these
machines. I highly recommend attending this event if you're a fan of

2012 Camaro ZL1 laps Nürburgring in 7:41:27
GM's North American president, Mark Reuss, has confirmed a
Nürburgring-Nordschleife lap time of 7 minutes and 41.27 seconds for the
2012 Camaro ZL1.
That time on the full-length, 20.832 km (12.944 miles), of the
Nürburgring-Nordschleife circuit beats out such track performers as the
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and the BMW M3 GTS - putting the ZL1 in solid
supercar territory. (Most lap times are measured on the 20.6 km stretch of
the track, stopping 200 meters short of the end.)
The test, though, was conducted by GM and not independently. The time was
set by GM's own test driver Aaron Link.
