1960 Impala - LS3 Restomod

1960 was a unique year for the Chevy Impala. That year, it followed the aggressive aircraft-inspired look of the 1959 model but preceded the more subdued 1961 redesign. As a result, its styling falls somewhere in between the two. It retains the prominent "bat wing" rear fins, but pairs them with a sleeker front grille, and replaces the '59 model's large teardrop tail lamps with three conical lamps on each side.

1970 Pontiac Firebird - Early Second-Gen

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.

1971 Chevy Nova - 350 Resto-Mod

The third-generation 1968-74 Chevy Nova is an extremely versatile platform. Many of these Nova models, especially the inline-6 cars and four-door sedans, were used as utilitarian family vehicles. However, the '68-74 Nova also became popular among drag racers and hot-rodders due to the potential of its small-block V8, and this potential remains to this day.
