1981 Camaro Z28 - Heart of a ZL1

With a 6.2L aluminum block, high-flow heads, and a 1.9-liter Eaton TVS supercharger, the Chevrolet LSA is one seriously potent motor. This engine was originally found in the 2012 through 2015 Camaro ZL1, but is also available from Chevrolet Performance as a crate configuration that produces 556 horsepower and 551 ft-lbs of tire-melting torque.

1973 Camaro - A 10-Year Project

No two classic car restoration projects are the same. Some are accomplished in weeks, with a whirlwind of new parts, body work, paint and assembly. Others take months or years of slow and calculated effort. Either way, stunning results can be achieved with the right plan and builder.

1969 Camaro - Blown Pro-Tourer

We'll always love to see classic cars exactly as they rolled off the showroom floor, but modern vehicles also have their own appealing characteristics. Automotive engineering has come a long way since the late '60s, thanks to precision tooling, streamlined manufacturing, and the revolutionary power of computers. For those who want to blend the best of classic cars with the power and amenities of modern muscle, there's an answer: pro touring.

1968 Camaro SS/RS - Fresh Squeezed

Every classic car has a history behind it. Some live an easy life with their original owners as garaged survivors, while others have undergone rough spots. Fortunately, the vehicles in the latter category can still be restored to original form. They just need the right parts, a skilled hand turning the wrenches, and plenty of long nights in the shop.

1982 Camaro Restomod - Blazing Yellow Z28

Here at the Classic Industries Retail Showroom, we see countless beautiful restored cars and trucks, as well as quite a few resto-modded vehicles. The latter category covers builds ranging from a few modern modifications to complete tear-downs and rebuilds with aggressive motor swaps.

The 1982 Camaro Z28 seen here definitely falls on the more extreme end of the spectrum. In fact, it's one of the most eye-catching third-gen Camaro builds we've seen to date.

1968 Camaro - Displacement Replacements

It's not uncommon these days to come across a classic car that has undergone an engine swap. In fact, for some models, there are many more examples that have been swapped than those that retain the original-spec engine. However, it's certainly less common to see a vehicle that has gone through as many different engines as this 1968 Camaro.

The '68 Camaro seen here belongs to Steve Koster, of Huntington Beach, California. Those who are familiar with these cars might guess it has a 327, 350, or even a 396. While it likely rolled off the factory floor with one of those engines, it's long gone now.

1970 Camaro - Stealthy Split-Bumper

Here at the Classic Industries Retail Showroom, we often see vehicles you might call "head-turners". They're decked-out in red, yellow, green, or purple paint, airbrushed with stripes or flames, and covered in sparkling chrome galore. However, a few vehicles we see in our parking lot take things in the opposite direction with an understated stealthy look.

At first sight, this 1970 Camaro had us subconsciously humming "Paint it Black" by the Rolling Stones. Every inch of the car's exterior has been blacked-out, from the split bumpers and projector headlamp housings to the steering wheel, Wilwood disc brake calipers, and 19-inch Intro billet wheels wrapped in Pirelli tires.

1967 Camaro SS - Rotisserie Restomod

The term "rotisserie" is often used in a culinary context, such as the whole roasted chickens that you'll find under heat lamps at the grocery store. But you'll also hear the term in the automotive restoration industry. So what does this mean in the context of a classic car?

Fortunately, rotisserie restoration has nothing to do with skewering a car over an open flame — we shudder at the thought. As you may have guessed, rotisserie restoration involves suspending the front and rear of a car on a special rack, and rotating it to access every nook and cranny of the underbody. Short of disassembling and removing the body for a full frame-off restoration, it's one of the best ways to thoroughly restore a vehicle.

This 1967 Camaro SS belongs to Graeme Chapman, of Huntington Beach, California. Graeme bought the car in 2008, and proceeded with a full rotisserie restoration to achieve the stunning results seen here.

1971 Camaro Restomod - A Golden Opportunity

Life has many turning points, and we often make decisions only to wonder what might have been if we had chosen a different path. Such was the case with the sale of this 1971 Camaro, now owned by David Kline, of Lakewood, California.

Back in 2003, the car's previous owner was unsure if he should sell it, but he eventually settled on the decision to let it go. David took this opportunity to purchase the then-rough Camaro as a new project, but as the former owner handed over the keys, he already felt a pang of regret.
