1961 Impala - Frame-Off Restoration

Back in the late '50s and early '60s, cars didn't necessarily have "generational" styling like they do today. These days, designers often create a model that stays cosmetically the same for 3 to 5 years, and eventually release small tweaks, or refresh the design with new lights, bumpers, and wheels. Back in the 1950s and '60s, there were many cases where every model year was unique, with huge stylistic changes every … Continue reading »

1972 Camaro Z28 - Red-Blooded

If you're anything like us, few things get your blood pumping more than the rumble and roar of an American V8. Better yet, that V8 should be under the hood of a classic car that has the timeless looks and aggressive disposition to match the engine's sound. Wide rubber, glossy paint, and sparkling chrome are all part of the equation, too. The 1972 Camaro Z28 seen here is a fine … Continue reading »

1970 Challenger Restoration - Sublime SE

Many classic car owners use the restoration process to make their cars their own, adding small period-correct tweaks along the way. For example, changing upholstery colors, upgrading to the top-of-the-line engine, or installing a different set of wheels and tires. However, Alan Little, of Lakewood, California, has done none of those things. He's a big believer in maintaining originality, and has put this belief into practice with his 1970 Challenger restoration. … Continue reading »

1979 Camaro Restoration - Little by Little

Sometimes, we see classic vehicles restored in one fell swoop—a car rolls into a restoration shop off a flatbed truck or trailer, then roars away under its own power a few months later. However, this night-and-day transformation isn't always possible. In some cases, the vehicle's owner drives it every day, and must gradually work to restore it piece by piece. The owner of this 1979 Camaro restoration project is Gaspar Rosales, … Continue reading »

1968 Camaro - Resto-Mod Drop-Top

The term resto-mod is a portmanteau or blend of the words "restoration" and "modification". As you might imagine, resto-modded vehicles run the gamut from lightly modified classic cars to vehicles which have had almost every component replaced with modern parts. The beauty of a resto-mod is that you may not know which category the vehicle falls into at first glance—it can still look like a classic, even if it performs … Continue reading »
