1972 Chevrolet C10 Pro Touring Build

November 23rd, 2022

Thanks to Shawn (Autotopia LA) for another stunning build from the left coast. This time we have a Chevy C10 smoke machine built to tackle the curves or run all out in a straight line. Whatever kind of racing you have in mind; this truck is up to the task. Check it out. It all starts under the hood. A naturally aspirated 6.2-liter LS3 V8 is pushed back in the engine bay nearly 10-inches. This helps with weight distribution and handling. Nothing radical with the engine, just a performance camshaft, some light porting and exhaust headers (2-inch stainless exhaust front Read More

600WHP Pro Touring Gen II Camaro by Chevy Girl

August 17th, 2022

If this clip has you wondering whether to look at the car or the girl, don’t feel bad. Laura (aka Chevy Girl) and Olive (the Camaro) are both outstanding specimens in their own right. Although, you might want to consider that the Camaro doesn’t talk and it sure sings a pretty song. This is a 1973 Chevrolet Camaro with a split-bumper (1970.5) front clip. The exterior and interior are basically stock. Even the color is from a 1969 Camaro. It’s called Fathom Green (she thinks). Detroit Digital gauges and Vintage Air climate control round out the interior. Inside and out, Read More

Then it happens – BAM – some smooth talker in a quiet ride moves in for the kill. You find yourself saying things like, “it didn’t sound that fast” and “I thought I had that one” before Read More

Thanks again to Shawn from Autotopia LA for finding this perfect 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle Restomod.
