Video: Joe Rogan's 1969 Camaro Built by Roadster Shop

The first-gen Camaro is an extremely popular platform for restoration and resto-modding, and it's the vehicle that got us started in the restoration industry back in 1976. With such a multitude of beautiful first-gens at car shows, cruises, and other events, it can seem difficult to build something that's truly one-of-a-kind. However, the crew at Roadster Shop did just that after high-profile client Joe Rogan asked them to build him a unique 1969 Camaro. The resulting vehicle appears subtle at first glance, but exquisitely detailed on closer inspection. Roadster Shop discussed all the details of this build in a recent video on their YouTube channel.

From books to movies and other forms of media, every great story has its twists and turns. The protagonist is often presented with a challenge or conflict they must overcome, leading to the satisfying resolution of the tale. The story of racing legend Dan Gurney's 1961 Impala fits this timeline so well that if we didn't know any better, we'd assume it was scripted by a Hollywood screenwriter. A short film from the YouTube channel Petrolicious tells this story from start to finish through the words of the car's current owner and caretaker.
