2013 Camaro ZL1 - Modern Muscle

As classic car enthusiasts, we tend to be skeptical of modern cars. After all, we love the cars of the '60s and '70s, and a lot has changed since that golden age of muscle cars. Back then, designers stuck to a simple formula: big-displacement V8 engines, alloy wheels with wide tires, aggressive flared bodywork, and bright paint colors that screamed performance. Thankfully, this formula is still alive and well in the 5th Gen Camaro ZL1. It has all the elements of a raw muscle car, plus plenty of technological improvements to make it a more livable and well-rounded vehicle. That's something that even the most skeptical classic car fan can appreciate.

Mopar Lighting Guide - A, B, and E-Body Bulb Charts

Owning a classic Mopar car is a labor of love, since finding the right restoration parts can sometimes be a difficult task. That's why Classic Industries began offering restoration parts for a variety of A, B, and E-Body models--we want to help Mopar owners restore their cars and keep them in showroom condition.

With this philosophy in mind, we also wanted to help restorers tackle some of the trickier tasks, such as replacing interior and exterior light bulbs. Swapping a burned-out bulb seems like an easy task—after all, how many mechanics does it take to change a light bulb? However, there are a number of different bulbs used throughout the 1960s and '70s Mopar lines, so having a guide to the specific applications is essential.

'64 Valiant Convertible - Perky Plymouth

One of the things we love about classic cars is their wide range of variation in shapes, sizes, and styles. Some classic cars appear aggressive and muscular, with wide flared fenders and gaping grill openings, while others appear poised and refined, with intricate chrome ornaments and sweeping lines. If we had to use a single word to describe this 1964 Plymouth Valiant, that word would be cheerful. The wide-set round headlights, bright red body, and peppy 318ci V8 would put a smile on anyone's face.

'80 Firebird Esprit - Affordable Classic

If you've ever owned or restored a classic car, you'll no doubt know that it can be an expensive endeavor. Iconic classics such as the '57 Bel Air and '69 Camaro fetch large sums of money whenever they are sold, even in barely drivable condition. Then there's the cost of parts and labor, which must also be taken into consideration. So, how does a young enthusiast afford to get into classic cars? Thomas Coursey, of Anaheim, California, found a solution to this dilemma via the 1980 Firebird Esprit seen here. It has all the pedigree, V8 rumble, and sculpted good looks that initially attracted Thomas to American muscle cars, but lacks the steep price tag of older or higher-trim models.

2012 Camaro RS - Vigilante



Whether it's in comic books, cartoons, live-action TV, or high-budget blockbuster movies, the superhero persona of Batman has been an ever-present part of American culture for decades. The Caped Crusader has captivated both kids and adults with his suave personality, enormous wealth, agile fighting skills, and clever gadgets. However, one of the coolest aspects of Batman, in our opinion, is the Batmobile. Batman's high-tech ride has been interpreted in many ways over the years, from the sleek roadster of the Adam West TV era to the armor-plated "Tumbler" piloted by Christian Bale in the Christopher Nolan movies. However, we recently came across a strong contender for a future iteration of the Batmobile: Jeff Sanders' 2012 Camaro RS.
