Barn Find: 1987 Regal Grand Nationals

    It’s every automotive enthusiast’s dream to come upon a barn find. Back in the day, someone would literally find untouched classics in barns that had been forgotten by time for decades. Finding cars in an actual barn is rare these days—they’re more like “garage finds”, but everything else is still the same. So, imagine the excitement William Avila felt when he opened up a garage one day to … Continue reading »






2010-Up Camaro Catalog

1958 Chevy Apache Restomod - Slammed 454

  The 1958 Chevrolet Apache is a striking design, and a marked departure from the 1957 truck model that preceded it. With dual headlamps, a reshaped wider grille, and an all-new fleetside bed design, the 1958 pickups looked sleeker than ever.     This 1958 Chevy Apache restomod project belongs to Troy and Kimber Barr, of Huntington Beach, California. It retains the distinctive original styling, but with several modern twists that … Continue reading »

1987 Buick Grand National - The Dark Side

  The Buick Grand National was an unconventional car, to say the least. Rather than sticking with the traditional American muscle car formula of squeezing a large-displacement V8 under the hood, GM engineers tried something different: a V6 with a turbocharger. This configuration was a major risk, since turbochargers were still in their infancy when Buick launched the first turbocharged Regal model in 1978. But, after working through a steep learning curve, … Continue reading »






67 Firebird - The Start of a Project

Every classic car restoration project has a starting point. Sometimes it's a rusty basket case sitting on cinder blocks in a backyard, other times it's an excellent-condition survivor that just needs a few replacement parts. More often than not, projects start somewhere in between these extremes, with a running and driving car or truck that's a little rough around the edges. The '67 Firebird seen here will soon be undergoing … Continue reading »

1970 Challenger T/A 340 Six Pak four-speed. This series of numbers and words will mean very little to the average person on the street, but say them in front of a car enthusiast, and you'll immediately have their attention.

1972 C10 Restoration - Sharp Cheyenne

The 1967 through 1972 C10 pickup is a truly classic design. Its strong edges were a notable departure from the sculpted curves of the 1960-66 models, but it still wasn't quite as squared-off as the 1973-87 pickups which followed it. This is one reason why the '67-'72 Chevy trucks have remained popular for so many years. The yellow and white 1972 C10 seen here is one of the later examples of … Continue reading »
