1969 Chevy Impala - Pure Elegance

The Chevy Impala models of the 1960s offered a long, sleek, and imposing appearance that few modern cars can hope to replicate. Although some have poked fun at the yacht-like size of two-door cars of this era, none can deny the head-turning presence of the sweeping lines of a classic Impala. These cars especially stand out today, with their lengthy proportions and big V8 engines contrasting strongly with roads filled by bland 4-cylinder compact cars.

1966 Nova - 625hp Pro-Tourer

What do you do when you have a classic muscle car, but you want it to perform like a modern muscle car on the street, race track, and drag strip? The answer is simple: blend the two categories together. Pro-touring is a style of resto-mod that some consider the ultimate fusion of old and new elements. This heavily-modified 1966 Nova from Full Throttle Restoration is a prime example of this type of build.

1965 Mustang Convertible - A 3-Year Project

As the old saying goes, Rome wasn't built in a day. In other words, it's rarely an overnight process to create something truly monumental. Restoring a classic car can take months, years, or even decades, but the end result is well worth the time and effort involved. The 1965 Mustang convertible pictured here was completely disassembled and restored over the course of three years, with the help of its dedicated owner and the Classic Industries Mustang catalog.

1970 Nova - Custom Yenko Tribute

Ever since its first use on modified vehicles in the 1960s, the name Yenko has represented pushing the limits of speed. Yenko took performance-oriented cars like the Camaro and Nova and added even more horsepower to the mix, resulting in vehicles that remain legendary to this day. However, original Yenko cars are extremely rare, and survivors carry six-figure price tags. This has prompted some enthusiasts to modify their cars with Yenko graphics and other affordable nods to this iconic heritage.

1989 Firebird Formula - The Original Owner

When you know you've found a good thing, you hold on to it. This is the mindset that led Michael Argandona, of Huntington Beach, California, to keep this 1989 Pontiac Firebird Formula for three decades. He has lovingly maintained it, keeping its smooth black paint and sleek sheetmetal in immaculate condition. The result is a car that's just as cool today as it was back in '89.

1969 Barracuda - Pop's Mopar

As classic car owners, we often develop a close connection with our vehicles and feel that they're irreplaceable. It's an understandable result of investing so much time, money, and sweat into making them look and run like new again. But few owners have a closer bond with their cars than those who inherited them from a family member. Angel Garrido received this 1969 Barracuda from his father, who bought it brand new in November of 1968. It's practically a four-wheeled member of the family at this point.

1954 Chevy 3100 - Built for Speed

At first glance, Rick Scott's '54 Chevy truck looks a bit rough. The cab was transplanted from an earlier split-windshield pickup. Its sheetmetal is sprayed in a mottled coat of flat black paint, the grille is dented, and both the front bumper and tailgate are missing completely. But when you take a closer look at this truck, you'll start spotting some subtle (and not-so-subtle) hints that it was built with a singular purpose: speed. Rick turned his truck into an all-out drag-racing machine.

1969 Camaro RS - One Lucky Grandson

Classic cars often become family heirlooms, passed from generation to generation over the course of decades. Not only does this process ensure a vehicle remains in good hands by keeping it in the family, it also maintains a strong sense of appreciation for these timeless cars and trucks. After all, it's one thing to see them in pictures and read about them in magazines, and entirely another to get your hands dirty under the hood and feel the exhilaration behind the wheel. This 1969 Camaro RS was recently restored in preparation to be handed down from a grandmother to her grandson.

1973 'Cuda - 500ci Mopar Power

Mopar cars of the early 1970s are well-known for their array of eye-catching High Impact colors, such as Plum Crazy, Sublime, Go Mango, and Panther Pink. Those vibrant hues were impossible to miss, and closely associated with the in-your-face attitude of these classic Dodge and Plymouth muscle cars. But even without brightly-colored paint, these vehicles have immense presence on the road. This 1973 'Cuda is a perfect example of what we mean.

1970 Camaro RS - High School Sweetheart

Anyone who was fortunate enough to have a car during high school has vivid memories of that vehicle. For some of us, it was a real junker, barely getting us where we needed to go as we struggled to keep it running. For others, it was a first project car, a little rough around the edges but something we took pride in restoring. John Velasquez, of West Covina, California, falls into the latter category. He bought this 1970 Camaro RS back in 1983 while he was in high school, and has owned it ever since.
