1969... a very good year for 1st Gen Camaros - winning the SCCA Trans-Am series title for the second straight year was Mark Donohue behind the wheel of the Penske team Camaros. Our 1969 Camaro came to us as a stripped hulk - a "blank slate" to work from. The plan is to restore this vintage beast far beyond its original capabilities with modern performance to tear up the autocross - with a 502 ci LSX engine and 6-speed Tremec trans combo, our Camaro will be more than a capable opponent. However, we're going to leave the paint in 'original' condition just for the fun factor of a wolf in sheep's clothing. “Captain America” Donohue would definitely be proud.
Project Blueprint is the newest member of our project car lineup - a 1964 Chevelle packed with a 427 cubic inch LS3 build by Blueprint Engine. With autocrossing, open-track days and daily driving in mind, we replaced the tired suspension with a complete RideTech package and upgraded to a big-brake kit with SSBC. This Chevelle is serving it all with a no-nonsense approach to building a serious pro-touring machine.
Project Swinger features a Ridetech Air Suspension, GM Performance Parts LSA Crate Engine, a Keisler/Tremec TKO-600, and plenty of Classic Industries components to make it look brand new again.
BlownZ is our all-out 275 Drag Radial fourth-gen Camaro build. Backed by a Virginia Speed-built LSX 388 with a FAST XFI and CDS Gear Driven ProCharger F1-R, we look to be a serious contender in the class with high 7-second passes. It also features a Moser M9 rear end and brakes, along with a Riffle Motorsports 25.5 roll cage.
When you think of MaxStreet, think of the Ultimate Muscle Car. We're looking to build the ultimate Friday night bruiser here with our 1966 Nova. Fully street worthy, can turn corners and run 10s on the track, and be the talk of the burger joint. Oh yea, pump gas, overdrive transmission, and over 900 hp.
Project Respect is based around the attitude that the third-generation Camaro from Chevrolet never received the credit it was due. That said, we're going all-in on this platform; including the addition of an all-new suspension, Moser 12-bolt rearend, Baer disc brakes, and a heavily-modified TCI 700R4 transmission. What's more, it'll retain it's everyday driveability...yeah, we're bringing Respect.
Project Grandma is a 1978 Chevrolet Malibu that was originally purchased by an elderly grandma in Pasadena. Now, it's far from it's original state as a full-on drag radial stock-suspension car. With a stock-body 25.5 chassis, 295/60/15 Drag Radials, a TCI Pro-X Glide and a monster Big Block.
