The Machiavelli Max post the other day was one of the better looking fake Ferrari kit cars I’ve seen recently — despite its plebian TransAm roots, it looks like a Ferrari to a casual observer. This next kit car…it is interesting, but I don’t think that anybody is going to be fooled into thinking it is a ’57 Chevy. Similar to the Machiavelli, the Belaro also uses a GM F-Body for the mechanical parts, but this time a Camaro. Find this 1997 Chevrolet Camaro Kit Car offered for $19,750 in Ft Lauderdale, FL via eBay.
If you try and shove a giant V8 into a little car and find that the engine’s air cleaner doesn’t fit under the hood, you’ve got a few options. The cleanest look is to find an intake snorkus that allows you to run the stock hood, but you can also add a scoop or a cowl induction hood…or…you can bust out the sawzall and hack an opening in your hood. Find this 1963 MG MGB V8 offered for $8000 in Corning, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
This next car comes as a tip from Matt C who writes: If I needed to say something nice about it, I’d say that it succeeds much better than attempting to make a 1957 Chevy out of a 2002 Camaro. And it is probably considerably more exciting to drive then when (a small portion of) it […]
Personal two door coupes sold by the truck loads in the 60’s-70’s-80’s, but are hardly produced any longer in 2018. Today’s Impala coupe has been given a Grand National style black out treatment and the results look almost vintage AMG like by my eye. Under the hood features a Chevy LS swap that should motivate […]
One of the biggest knocks on the Disco era Corvette’s is the lack of power from the strangled 350 V8 engines. In 1978 for the 25th anniversary, you could get a 220hp option which was a nice upgrade over the base 185hp. The biggest exterior change for 1978 was a new fastback design and the […]
DT E-i-C Vince: Sorry about the lack of posts today, I had unexpected internet connectivity issues at the DT headquarters (I should probably consider paying my bills…) all day and have only now figured out a stop-gap connection. ANYWAY, as an apology I present this 1965 GMC Pickup offered for $2500 in San Jose, CA […]
Now is a good time as any to get into a third generation Chevy Camaro or Pontiac Firebird/Trans Am. In recent years, the Smokey and the Bandit 1970’s cars have seen some strong appreciation so bargain third gens are still out there. The Iroc-Z is a icon of the 1980’s and boasted a real racing […]
The turbo charged Cobalt SS is easy car to argue about. On one hand, it is one of the fastest fwd cars ever to lap the Nurburgring and very simple to add an extra 100 horsepower to the stout 260 hp stock engine. On the other hand, any Cobalt isn’t going to impress your significant other […]
The new for 1978 Malibu took the Chevelle’s place in the Chevy line up. The A-body Malibu went through similar downsizing and weight loss program that the Impala went through. It would not be a stretch to think of the square jawed Malibu as the American Volvo 240. Today’s Malibu is particularly noteworthy because it […]
The MGB was a fantastic car when first introduced in 1962 and through the late 1960s…but it was getting long in the tooth by the 1980s when it was fitted with some awful looking rubber bumpers, and a smog restricted engine…but that shouldn’t stop you from upping the power/fun with a Chevy V6 engine swap.
