Smokey Yunick-klon, Kents Camaro -68
Det är världens mest berömda Camaro, trots att den aldrig fick
tävla. Mekanikergeniet och uppfinnaren Henry "Smokey" Yunick utnyttjade
varenda möjlighet och kryphål som fanns i reglementet för Trans
Am-serien för att bygga en vinnarbil. Den var så snabb att Fords och
Chryslers fabriksteam krävde att bilen förbjöds -- och så blev det.
Kent Larsson i Arlöv har byggt en näst intill perfekt klon av Smokey-Camaron, med alla
speciella tricks Smokey tog till, men tagen ett steg längre med 427
bigblock, sexväxlad låda och hydraulisk bromsservo, bland annat.
Historien om den kan du läsa i Bilsport 22 som står i butik från och med
torsdag 17 oktober 2013.

Smokey Yunick 1968 Camaro Trans Am Race Car at Hot Rod - Eastwood
Visit Eastwood: http://www.eastwood.com
One of the most legendary race cars of all time made an appearance at the
Hot Rod Magazine 65th Anniversary Homecoming in Pomona in March 2013 - the
1968 Camaro made famous
by Smokey Yunick. Although Yunick never won a Trans Am Race in this car,
he did set numerous speed and endurance records. Do Yenko later purchased
the car and led it to Trans Am victories.
The car was altered in many ways, and much has been written about Smokey
and the tech inspections.
Yunick also built a 1968 Camaro for Trans-Am racing.
Although Yunick set several speed and endurance records with the car at
Bonneville Speedway, with both a 302 cubic inch (~4942 cubic centimeter)
and a 396 cubic inch (~6489 cubic centimeter) engine, it never won a race
while Yunick owned it. It was later sold to Don Yenko, who did win several
races. In typical Yunick fashion, the car, although superficially a stock
Camaro, had acid-dipped
body panels and thinner window glass to reduce weight, the front end of the
body tilted downwards and the windshield laid back for aerodynamics, all
four fenders widened, the front subframe Z'ed (to physically move the front
suspension higher and lower the front of the car) and the floorpan moved up
to lower the car, and many other detailed modifications. The drip rails
were even brought closer to the body for a tiny aerodynamic improvement. A
connector to the engine oil system was extended into the car's interior, to
allow the driver to add oil from a pressurized hose during pit stops. In
order to allow the driver enough freedom of movement, the shoulder harness
was modified to include a cable-ratchet mechanism from a military
helicopter. In 1993, Vic Edelbrock, Jr. purchased and restored the car.
Yunick grew up on a farm in Neshaminy, Pennsylvania and had to drop out of
school to run the farm at age 16, upon the death of his father. This,
however, gave him an opportunity to exercise his talents for improvising
and optimizing mechanical solutions; for instance, constructing a tractor
from the remains of a junked car. In his spare time, he built and raced
motorcycles; this is where he got his nickname, "Smokey," derived from the
behavior of one of his motorcycles.

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 vs 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition! - Head 2 Head Ep. 52
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman travels to Barber
Motorsports Park for a head to head matchup with the brand new Chevy Camaro Z/28 and a well
known heavyweight, the Nissan GT-R. But not just any GT-R, the 2014 Track
Edition which packs a 545 hp twin-turbo
V-6, a 6-speed dual clutch transmission, sticky Dunlop tires and AWD
traction into a car without rear seats. The Z/28, by way of contrast,
features a massive 7.0-liter naturally-aspirated V-8, a 6-speed manual
transmission, and tail-out RWD. While it does still have rear seats, nearly
every other non-essential component has been removed. Moreover, the Z28's
tires might be even stickier! The front ones, enormous 305-sections, are
certainly the widest tires ever bolted to a production car. Both cars are
phenomenal, and both cars make rational men scream, "Gimme!" But only one
can come out on top. Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

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

During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be

Seat of YouTube!
