The best show in Vegas... Chevrolet Camaro Performance
Every year, companies from across the automotive aftermarket industry meet in Las Vegas for SEMA, a massive trade show and conference. Every year, the event features the latest and greatest products, accessories, and show cars on display. Every year, the vehicles get more wild and more creative. The recently-concluded 2013 conference was no exception.
For this year's display, Classic Industries featured two world-class 427-powered Camaro performance driven builds. One was the latest project from renowned custom builder Bodie Stroud, a Smokey Yunick inspired 1968 model built for actor/comedian Tim Allen. The other was a truly unique collector car built by one of drag racing's foremost innovators: “Mr. Chevrolet” Dick Harrell.
Tim Allen's 1968 is a state-of-the-art interpretation of what hot rod legends would have done with today’s technology to create the best in Camaro performance. It features a 505 hp LS7 427 V8, steering and suspension by Detroit Speed, Brembo brakes, and other subtle custom touches.
Here's what Bodie Stroud had to say:
This Camaro started life as an SS 396 car and was immediately sent to the Dick Harrell Performance Center to be upgraded with the best components of the day, including an iron-block 427ci with a ZL1 camshaft, 4.56 gears, and Lakewood traction bars.
This tribute is dedicated to the man who put it together:
