1966 Chevy Nova - 760hp LS Swap

Take one look at this 1966 Chevy Nova, and it's clear that it falls into the restomod category. Some elements have been restored using original-style parts, while others have been modified or replaced with modern components. The lowered stance, large billet wheels, blacked-out bumpers and trim, and carbon fiber chin spoiler are all characteristic cues for this style of build. However, the changes to this Nova are much more than skin deep.

1966 Chevy Suburban - Old-School SUV

These days, the Sport Utility Vehicle segment has become a dominant force in the automotive industry. Anywhere you look, you'll see dozens of SUVs, whether they're small crossovers or full-size family-haulers. In many cases, these versatile vehicles outnumber trucks, sedans, wagons, and hatchbacks. But back in the 1960s, the idea of an SUV was just beginning thanks to innovative models like the Chevrolet Suburban.

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.

1971 GMC Pickup - Candy Red Restomod

With its quad headlamps and distinctive crosshair-shaped grill, the 1967-72 GMC pickup truck diverges slightly from the appearance of its more-common Chevy sibling. These trucks exude classic style, even today, making them a popular choice for restoration projects.

1969 Camaro SS - Father-Son Project

Restoring a classic car can be a great bonding experience that bridges the gap between generations. A parent may have fond memories of driving a specific car during their youth, and can share that with their children, allowing them to make memories of their own behind the wheel. Seeing through a restoration project to completion isn't always easy, but it's certainly a worthwhile endeavor.

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.

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.

2014 Camaro SS - A Custom Daily-Driver

A classic car doesn't necessarily have to be a certain age to qualify as "classic". A modern vehicle can be a classic in its own right, as long as it develops a die-hard following that will last for generations to come. That's why at Classic Industries, we believe in supporting every generation of the Chevy Camaro. From 1967 to 2017 and beyond, the Camaro has always been an icon of American performance.

With a 6.2 LS3 V8 engine and six-speed manual transmission, this 2014 Camaro SS is a modern take on the American muscle tradition. This car belongs to Bob Castro, of Huntington Beach, California. Bob moved to California from Hawaii, and purchased this Camaro as his daily-driver vehicle shortly afterward.
