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 … Continue reading »






Classic Industries Super Chevy Muscle Car Challenge

  Here at Classic Industries, we love providing restoration parts for vintage Chevy cars and trucks, but we also recognize that those vehicles aren't just designed to sit in a garage collecting dust. They're designed to be driven, and in many cases, driven fast.     Models like the Camaro and Nova SS were intended as high-performance models when they were released, and the vast array of engine, transmission, and suspension … Continue reading »






Turning a Barnfind Into a Driver

It’s every car enthusiast’s dream to participate in a barnfind. To discover a car of their childhood, a rare and highly sought after muscle car that had been stowed away in a garage (or front yard) for decades, or just a cool car that seems unloved and underappreciated.   Unfortunately, the reality is that regardless of the kind of car it is, or how rare it is, it’s still an old … Continue reading »






1991 Camaro Convertible - LS1 Third-Gen

When starting a new classic car project, there are a number of choices to make. Some owners choose to restore every nut and bolt to factory spec, ending up with a vehicle that looks like it just rolled off the showroom floor. Jeromey Campbell, of Huntington Beach, California, was looking for something more distinctive when he started work on this 1991 Camaro Z28 convertible. Jeromey purchased the Camaro about 8 … Continue reading »

/DRIVE Video - The Perfect IROC?

We've always been fans of the third-gen Camaro, so it's nice to see the increased attention it's getting lately. Much like the second-gen cars were unappreciated for years, and then suddenly became popular again, we're seeing a resurgence in interest in the third-gen F-body vehicles. This is especially true of the IROC-Z, one of the most iconic American cars of the 1980s. Popular automotive YouTube channel /DRIVE published a video today that … Continue reading »






1986 Pontiac Trans Am - Third Gen Restoration

We're always glad to see the third-gen F-body cars getting the appreciation they deserve. Ten or fifteen years ago, few people would have considered the 1982-92 Firebirds and Trans Ams candidates for restoration, but now that these cars are becoming more collectible, the prices for clean examples are on the rise. This white 1986 Trans Am is one of the cleanest we've seen, and shows how much these cars stand out … Continue reading »






1991 Camaro Z28 - Recovered & Reborn

For a car enthusiast, there's no worse feeling than having your car stolen. In an instant, the vehicle you put so much time and effort into is gone, and you're left empty-handed. This is exactly what happened to Ismael Castillo, the owner of this 1991 Camaro Z28, on New Year's Eve last year. After spending the evening with his friends celebrating, he went outside to find his Camaro was missing. It … Continue reading »






87 Camaro IROC-Z - 416,000 Miles

Have you ever heard of a car going 500,000 miles before? How about doing it on the original engine and transmission? If you have, it's likely that it was a boring 4-cylinder economy car. That's all well and good, but we think if you're going to choose a car to drive half a million miles in, it might as well be one with a V8 and some style. David Mayans, of Corona, California, … Continue reading »
