http://www.v8tvshow.com - Larry Callahan runs the website Pro-Touring.com, and his own twin turbocharged 1968 Camaro is a textbook example of the kinds of cars the website is built around. The "MotiV8r" Camaro features every pro-touring trick in the book, and was built by Prodigy Customs to run as good as it looks. Video from the 2009 Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational DVD.
Supercharged ZR1 LS9 1969 Camaro "Jackass" Track Video V8TV

Currie Enterprises, and more. Hang on tightly!
Roadster Shop RSC1 Corvette OUSCI Track Thrash V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - The Roadster Shop builds some killer cars, and
they were recently out beating up one of their most amazing creations, the
RSC1 Corvette. Starting life as a 1962 Corvette, the Roadster Shop crew
transformed every piece of this car into a slick high-tech version of the
timeless C1 Corvette. Starting with a complete new RS Performance
chassis, they added a GM LS7 engine, Kinsler EFI, giant brakes, and all the
right parts to make it stop, go, and turn. Then they reworked every panel
on the car, added a custom interior, and started winning awards. We think
the best part is that this car gets driven hard on road course and
autocross tracks. This interview was shot at the 2009 Optima Ultimate
Street Car Invitational, and is part of an upcoming DVD of the event.
1965 Chevelle Engine Upgrades V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Our '65 Chevelle drove in on a low-performance
350 cubic inch Chevy replacement engine that was reported to have less than
10,000 miles on it. Initially, we contemplated doing a late-model EFI
swap on this car, but then we thought we'd take a look at what we had and
see what kind of shape it was in. Turns out that the 350 is a parts-store
type replacement engine with 4-bolt mains and a very clean bottom end.
The cast iron heads and cam were not very exciting, so we used the Dynomation engine simulation
software to whip up a new recipe. In this installment, we clean up the
engine, repaint the short block, and install a new Comp Cams Xtreme Energy
cam, lifters, timing set, new Holley performance aluminum cylinder heads, a
Weiand Action Plus intake manifold, an MSD Pro-Billet distributor, some
Flowtech headers, and a Holley 670 Street Avenger camshaft. Some of the
parts we already had like the MSD unit, the intake, and the carb, but the
cam and heads are new. Here's how it went.
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.
2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 vs. Mark Stielow's Red Devil '69 Camaro - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 13
On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, David Freiburger meets up with Pro
Touring legend Mark Stielow to compare old and new Camaros head to head. Mark
Stielow is a GM engineer with a long history of building vintage,
with amazing handling prowess. His latest is the Red Devil, a '69 model
powered by a 427ci, supercharged LS9 that tops 750 hp and 800 lb-ft. It
runs a six-speed trans and complete suspension from Detroit Speed, and has
won a number of shootouts with similarly built Pro Touring cars. But can
his modified muscle car outrun the technology of the Magnetic Ride
suspension on the new, 580hp, 2012 Camaro ZL1? We head to GingerMan
Raceway in South Haven, Michigan to find out.

CTS-V Powered '68 Camaro Drop Top - /BIG MUSCLE
Finding the right balance between a well tuned street car and a flat-out
performance car is no easy task. However that didn't stop Southern
California resident Bob Hall from building what may just be one of the best
vehicles we've ever driven. He started with an ultra clean 1968 Camaro SS convertible, fitted it
with a supercharged LSA mill from a 2009 Cadillac CTS-V, reworked the
entire drivetrain and suspension, and in the end, created a car that's 44
years old but feels like it rolled out of the factory yesterday.

1967 GT500 Eleanor: Re-imagining a Classic - /BIG MUSCLE
Carroll Shelby created it, "Gone in 60 Seconds" re-imagined it, and
audiences around the world made it famous. The 1967 Shelby GT500 Eleanor is
one of the most recognizable movie cars of all time. With the body lines of
a shark, the stage presence of a movie star and the perceived performance
of an olympic athlete, it's no wonder die-hard enthusiasts fell in love
with this amazing machine. BIG MUSCLE received so many requests for this
car that we just had to go out and find one. So now sit back, click play
and enjoy... and don't bust my chops in regards to my glasses - it was
really sunny that day - M. Musto
