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.
Drag Racing Test: 2010 Camaro SS
PlanetLSX.com brings you the 2010 Camaro SS track test that we
performed at Lone Star Raceway in Sealy, TX. Weather conditions were 88F
and humid, with a 10-15 mph head wind. Density Altitude was +2,188 ft.
Track prep was good, but the 20" tires had some wheel hop if you launched
1969 Camaro RS/SS First Start up in 28 Years
Working 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....

Rocking awesome Corvette Bronze paint, a complete restoration and a
numbers-matching drivetrain, this fully documented Camaro is the quintessential blue
chip muscle car. If you're looking to grab a pristine, investment grade F1
before the market ticks up, check out your next classic!
Logging only weekend miles since its detailed, frame-off restoration, this
bold panther displays excellent bodywork that simply glistens under our
bright showroom lights. A lot of effort was put into making sure the car's
body is extremely straight, which resulted in Kansas-flat sheetmetal that's
completely wave-free. That time was well spent, as excellent panel gaps
perfectly center hinged pieces which move freely and close with solidity.
And those pieces are bathed in slick Corvette Bronze and Tuxedo Black
two-stage that's been buffed to a spectacular shine.
Under this Chevy's Kansas-flat hood you'll find an original 3914678-branded
302 that was cast on March (C ) 11th (11), 1968 (8), assembled in Flint,
Michigan (V) on March (03) 14th (14), 1968 and stamped with a correct
424402 partial VIN. Straight from the factory, Chevrolet's high performance
SCCA Mustang slayer
utilizes high flow, rectangular port heads, a forged steel crank, forged
steel rods and forged aluminum pistons to twist stout 11 to 1 compression
into more than 350 horsepower!
This coupe's original gear slinger, which hangs a Muncie 4-speed (P)
assembled on March (C ) 12th (12), 1968 (8) assembly stamp in front of a
correct 424402 partial VIN, spins a stout 12-bolt rear end around big, 4.10
gears. That first-rate drivetrain is held off the ground by a completely
rebuilt, high performance suspension, which includes 4-piston,
Corvette-style brakes, tuned front coils, multi-leaf rears and reproduction
shocks. And that suspension rolls on 15-inch Rally wheels, which spin
E70-15 Goodyear Wide Tread GTs around correct stainless center caps and
dent-free trim rings.
The Standard Black interior hiding behind this car's small bronze doors
illustrates the true, no frills intentions of Chevrolet's hallowed Z/28.
Its bucket seats were restored with new backs, new foam and reproduction
covers that look and feel fantastic. In front of those seats a wood-lined
dash, which exhibits no signs of warping or peeling, hangs rebuilt
telemetry above a vintage Delco radio. At the base of that dash, great
looking carpet centers a chrome Hurst shifter between four color-keyed
floor mats. And in front of the driver, Chevrolet's classy Rosewood
steering wheel spins satin spokes around a red, white and blue centerpiece.
When it comes to history and desirability, this Z/28 is a hard car to beat!
