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.

1972 Plymouth Scamp - Restored A-Body

Scamp is a term for a mischevious person who goes against the grain; a rascal, rogue, or scalawag. However, a scamp isn't a serious outlaw, instead opting to toe the line in a likeable way. This is an apt description for the sporty two-door hardtop seen here.

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.

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.

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.

1977 Firebird - Screaming Yellow

When you own a classic car with sleek body lines, glistening chrome, and a roaring V8 engine, it's bound to turn some heads as you drive around town. You're not driving a beige Camry, after all. So why not take it to the next level, and throw subtlety aside completely? That's what Onesimo Lopez, of Santa Ana, California, did with his 1977 Firebird project.
