Amsoil/Street Rodder's Road Tour '59 Impala

The Chevrolet Impala arrived in 1958 as an upscale alternative to the Bel Air, creating a more competitive mid-price ride with a sporty demeanor. With its cool crossed checkered flags and distinctive silhouette, the Impala quickly became Chevrolet's widely recognized flagship nameplate. Those old enough to remember the era understand '58 was a standalone model year, styling-wise, with a new X-frame chassis underneath that would remain a GM mainstay through 1964.

The all-new '59 Impala's futuristic styling completely eclipsed everything in the marketplace. This model's overwhelming presence made it an awe-inspiring mode of transportation. So, it made perfect sense to take a '59 Impala two-door hardtop and give it an incredible makeover.

'73 Camaro Z28 - Commitment of a Lifetime

Don Hilderbrand's '73 Camaro Z28 L82, a High School Sweetheart


For those of us who grew up in the sixties and seventies, Chevy's Camaro has been the ever constant familiar face in a frequently changing automotive climate. We've ridden the tides of change, from hot factory high-performance cars in the 1960s, to the decidedly lame Detroit iron of the 1970s. It was a long dry spell before the lords of Woodward Avenue and Van Nuys Boulevard would get back to the business of burning rubber from traffic light to traffic light in the mid-1980s.

1970-73 F-Body Passenger Floor Pan | Without Converter Hump

"What happened to your floor?" is a question familiar to F-body owners. The catalytic converter hump in the right floor pan, just in front of the seat, has puzzled fans of symmetry and warmed the legs of passengers since 1974. Owners of (smog exempt) 2nd gen vehicles can replace their floor with the 70-73 version to delete the hump and gain valuable leg room, while 3rd and 4th gen owners are left to their own devices.
