1972 Nova - Completing the Transformation

Each week, we write about a customer's classic car restoration project here on our blog. Normally, we speak to the owner, jot down notes, and write about the restoration parts and accessories that we know were used during the build. However, occasionally we meet a customer who does an even better job describing his or her car than we could, so we simply share the story in their own words. That was the case with this 1972 Nova, which belongs to Graham Reimer, of Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. Read on for his detailed description of the project.

1969 Pontiac Firebird - Worth the Wait

We've all heard the old saying that patience is a virtue, but it's often difficult to put that virtue into practice in our daily lives. It takes considerable fortitude to see a classic car restoration project through to completion as the months and years tick by, but those who stick with it reap the rewards. Ethan Skinner, of Pennsylvania, experienced this firsthand as he restored the 1969 Pontiac Firebird seen here. He writes, "It has been a slow process, but worth the wait."

1968 Camaro - LS3-Powered Restomod

The Chevrolet Camaro is unquestionably one of the most iconic American cars of all time, but it shares this high level of prestige with its big brother, the Corvette. These two-door sports cars from General Motors have shared real estate in dealership showrooms for decades, and even though they're not direct competitors, they do share similar characteristics and a similar spirit. So, when Ryan Duncan set out to rebuild his '68 Camaro, he decided to drop in the heart of a Corvette: an LS3 V8 motor. After all, a little sharing among siblings is a good thing.

1965 Impala SS - Daily-Driven Classic

Many of the classic cars we provide parts for, such as the Camaro, were designed with agility and performance in mind. Others, such as the iconic '57 Bel Air, place a higher emphasis on luxury and comfort as opposed to all-out speed. Some would say the Chevy Impala SS offers a perfect middle ground between a sports car and a cruiser, blending the two ideas into a vehicle that's both elegant and fast. This 1965 Impala SS is a beautiful example of what we mean.

1928 Model A Truck - Road-Trip Ready

Classic Industries offers a huge variety of restoration parts for GM, Mopar, and Ford vehicles, and even though we only offer catalogs for certain models, many of the parts we provide can be used across a wide range of platforms and body styles. This 1928 Ford Model A resto-mod build, owned by Mikael Bjork, is one such example. We don't offer a dedicated Model A catalog, but Mikael was still able to source several components for this truck (and his other classic vehicles) from our site.
