1952 Chevy Truck - A Work In Progress

Every project vehicle has a beginning and, as the saying goes, Rome wasn't built in a day. Although we see plenty of complete builds with every last nut and bolt replaced, we also see quite a few in-progress builds, and we find these equally interesting. A partially-completed project tells a story about the journey it has been on as well as the intended destination.

1962 Impala SS - 327ci Daily-Driver

We appreciate all styles of automotive restoration, from high-tech restomod builds to original-style restoration projects. But when it comes to the latter category, we're especially fond of cars that stay true to their original styling and are also daily-driven. Rolling down the highway looking just like they did brand-new, these vehicles are like time capsules on four wheels, and they take us back to a wonderful time in automotive history.

1969 Camaro Restomod - 406ci Daily-Driver

Many of the restored classic cars that show up in our Retail Showroom parking lot are driven frequently, and this fact always makes us smile. After all, while these timeless vehicles look great standing still, they're truly at their best in motion. The men and women who originally designed and built them intended them to be driven, so we're glad to play our part in making sure that's still happening several decades after these cars and trucks rolled off the assembly line.

1973 Nova SS - A "Hybrid" Build

If someone mentions owning a "hybrid" vehicle, most people assume it's a Prius or some other ordinary commuter car powered by a combination of gasoline and electricity. However, the term actually represents anything made by combining two different elements. So in a broader sense, a hybrid build can also be a vehicle that blends visual elements rather than powertrain components. Case in point: this 1973 Nova SS might not look like a '73 at first glance, since it features a front-end conversion with parts from the previous model year.

1971 Camaro - Built for the Corners

Autocross is a form of racing that pushes a car and its driver to the limit. On the surface, it seems relatively simple: navigate a cone course as quickly as possible without hitting any cones or losing control. Most autocross courses are relatively compact, and don't provide enough room to reach the triple-digit speeds you might see on a full-size track. However, the sport places a heavy emphasis on precise acceleration, braking, and handling. Making a car dance through the cones is far from easy.

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.

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.

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.

1965 Impala - Cross-Country Cruiser

America is a huge country, and one that's full of a tremendously diverse variety of landscapes, people, food, music, and culture. Each state and city has its own identity, famous landmarks, and beautiful sights to experience. That's why traveling across the United States is such a fun and memorable experience, especially when it's in the form of a road trip.

The cross-country road trip is a wonderful thing, and it's even better if you love to drive the open road. Miles of smooth asphalt, the wind in your face, your favorite tunes on the radio, and the thrum of an American V8 engine in the background — we'd say it doesn't get much better than that.
