Throwback Thursday: Building A Foundation With Chassisworks

Here we are again, another week is nearing completion. That’s right, Thursday has landed firmly on our garage floor. With the end of the week quickly approaching, are you making weekend garage plans? Maybe they have already been made? If your plans for spending some time in your garage include a little research into upgrading your classic second-gen Camaro’s chassis, you might want to check this out.

In this edition of Throwback Thursday, we’re taking a short hop back to September 2013, to check out: Building A Foundation With Chris Alston’s Chassisworks’ Frames. In this article, we take a look at what goes into making a complete hot-rod chassis for your second-gen Camaro.

You can customize your frame with a ton of shock options that help pave the path to a finely tuned rig. VariShocks provides what is needed.

It’s no secret that a solid foundation is paramount to any successful project. A hearty chassis can make all the difference between a durable, long-lasting hot rod, or one that doesn’t quite meet expectations. Chris Alston’s Chassisworks of Sacramento, California knows the value in a correctly built foundation.

In the original article, we learned that a prime example of Chassisworks’ engineering is the 1970 through 1981 second-generation Camaro Full-Frame System. This frame is comprised of three modular frame sections that make up the perfect core to a competition-dominating, corner carving, Pro Touring hot rod or drag racer. The front and rear sections are independently usable from each other, and can help anyone at any stage of their build. “The modularity of our entire system is the biggest plus. It can be used for any vehicle set up from street to race,” shared Lino Chestang of Chassisworks.

The g-Bar and g-Link rear suspension systems plant the rear of the vehicle squarely where it needs to be, eliminating wheel hop and providing crucial adjustments to fine tune how the car reacts.

Individuality is what this hobby is about, and building a car to do exactly what you want it to is the end game for all enthusiasts. Chris Alston’s Chassisworks Frame System allows adjustments galore, helping every dream become a reality. The hot rod, muscle car, and Pro Touring scenes are constantly evolving, and you can bet that Chassisworks will continue doing the same.

A myriad of options are also available to tailor the front suspension to suit any enthusiast’s need.

There is a lot of good information in the original article, and that is why I thought; Building A Foundation With Chris Alston’s Chassisworks’ Frames would be a great article for this week’s Throwback Thursday.
