1969 Camaro Restomod - 406ci Daily-Driver

Many of the restored classic cars that show up in our Retail Showroom parking lot are driven frequently, and this fact always makes us smile. After all, while these timeless vehicles look great standing still, they're truly at their best in motion.

1969 Plymouth Satellite Sedan - A Practical Classic

When we think of classic cars, it's easy to focus on the most powerful and sporty top-trim models. For the Mopar B-body platform, this means that most enthusiasts dream of the Dodge Charger or Plymouth GTX and Road Runner. Although those vehicles are certainly memorable, there are also many other forms of the B-body platform that are certainly worthy of appreciation.

1973 Camaro Type LT - Luxury Second-Gen

By 1973, the Camaro had long since established itself as a fun and engaging vehicle, but Chevrolet was looking to expand the appeal of this successful model even further. For some drivers, a hardcore track machine was less attractive than one with more focus on comfort and refinement. In pursuit of a trim package that would draw in these buyers, Chevy developed the 1973 Camaro Type LTThis shift in direction was especially relevant considering the increasing emissions restrictions of the early '70s.

1975 Firebird - A California Classic

California is a friendly environment for classic cars due to its mild and sunny weather conditions year-round. Snow, ice, and salted roads are virtually nonexistent, and even rain is a rare phenomenon. This means that the Golden State is a great place to find survivor vehicles that have been preserved in excellent condition since the day they rolled off the production line.

1973 Nova SS - A "Hybrid" Build

If someone mentions owning a "hybrid" vehicle, most people assume it's a Prius or some other ordinary commuter car powered by a combination of gasoline and electricity. However, the term actually represents anything made by combining two different elements. So in a broader sense, a hybrid build can also be a vehicle that blends visual elements rather than powertrain components. Case in point: this 1973 Nova SS might not look like a '73 at first glance, since it features a front-end conversion with parts from the previous model year.

1969 Nova - Yenko/SC 427 Tribute

For fans of classic Chevy vehicles, the name Yenko is a real attention-getter. The first-gen Yenko/SC Camaro was a true high-performance icon of the late '60s, and its legacy lives on to this day through modern cars such as the 1,000-horsepower 2018 Yenko/SC Stage II Camaro. But the Yenko name was also applied to other Chevrolet vehicles, including the Corvair, Chevelle, and Nova.

1972 Plymouth Scamp - Restored A-Body

Scamp is a term for a mischevious person who goes against the grain; a rascal, rogue, or scalawag. However, a scamp isn't a serious outlaw, instead opting to toe the line in a likeable way. This is an apt description for the sporty two-door hardtop seen here.
