    افتراضي CARL'S '68 CAMARO RS




    Twenty minutes was all that I needed. Actually, scratch that. It was that first spirited corner which convinced me. The other nineteen minutes and fifty-eight seconds was a pounding-the-point-into-my-cranium experience. I was sitting passenger in a car that would normally cower at the brief mention of anything corner related.



    But not this 1968 Chevy Camaro RS.



    This particular lady, dressed-to-the-nines in Traffic Violation Red, has been completely redone from the ground up to do very un-muscle car sort of things: to take corners and doing it well in the process.



    You can't deny just how awesome this car looks, can you?



    Every car has a personality. Some cars can have a very serious personality, whereas others can feel a bit lethargic, whimsical, or even dangerous. Carl's Camaro totally screams out "I'm old, BUT THAT DOES NOT STOP BE FROM BEING TWELVE" at all times.



    And where does that kid-at-heart personality come from? A look under the car reveals just that. The Camaro's original suspension has been completely replaced with a Hotchkis Total Vehicle Suspension kit. The front suspension sports brand new top and bottom control arms, sportier springs, Bilstein shocks, and heavy duty tie rod sleeves.



    The rear of the car sports a set of Hotchkis leaf springs.



    The car also has a set of Hotchkis sway bars in the front and rear of the car.

    All those suspension upgrades makes car feels like it's a teenager again. Ten bucks says it still loves to eat microwaved chicken nuggets and drink Kool-Aid too!



    So with the character-making suspension characteristics out of the way, Carl then looked into replacing the tired old chevy big block. What now sits inside the pristine engine bay is a 2002 Z28 LS1 that has been supercharged with a Mangacharger system. The engine is relatively stock except for a Lingenfelter GT2-3 camshaft, Ferra exhaust valves, and ARP fasteners.

    That engine setup makes a groin-pleasing 465 wheel horsepower and 460 wheel torque at 6.5lbs of boost. With a muscle car, you'd expect muscle car fuel economy correct? Nope, not this car. How does 25 highway and 15 city miles per gallon sound? Those numbers would almost please the Californian legislature --almost.




    The car has a stock T56 six-speed transmission with an LS2 flywheel, LS7 clutch and hydraulic.



    Carl kept the car looking classically correct with a set of Vintage Wheel Works V45 17x9.5" with 275/40/17 Nitto NT-05 tires on all four corners. The Camaro's eons-old drum brakes have been replaced with 13" Corvette C4 calipers and rotors in the front and 1995 Z28 calipers and rotors in the rear.



    The interior has been restored to an almost show-room quality sheen. Everything is pretty much stock deluxe except for the two Sparco seats in the front.





    The car has been under the ownership of Carl for the past 32 years which was originally owned by his father whom traded their family '53 Ford truck for the Camaro. It then went into the ownership of his sister in 1978 till 1982 when when Carl traded his '71 El Camino for the Camaro. Carl talks about the early years with his car the best:

    "It was the best trade I ever made. It had the 70’s period 14” American Racing mag wheels, two-barrel 327 engine, and a Powerglide transmission. It took me everywhere in high school and college and only left me stranded once. At 17 years old a blown timing chain left me stranded in front of a house that was throwing a party that I was not supposed to be at. BUSTED! I got to know the car very well after two engines, three transmissions, two differentials, and numerous weekend wrenching sessions with my buddies."
