Back In Time
Mt. Juliet, TN
As a 19-year-old in 1979, Ken purchased his '69 Camaro for a paltry 700 clams. Since then, the motor has been bored 0.030 over, uses a 284 Power Max Crane Cam with a Weiand Stealth intake manifold, and gets fueled by a 650cfm Holley up top. For exhaust, headers coated by Jet-Hot and a set of Flowmaster American Thunder series mufflers expel the spent fumes. Ken estimates the power to be around 350 hp, and as for his plans: drive it every chance he gets.
'70 Monte Carlo
River Grove, IL
It's big, it's fast, and it's flat-out evil. This full-body Monte drags its way to a low 11-second pass without flinching. Chris made sure to stick to the basics by punching out his 502 to 509 inches. For the rotating assembly, he added JE pistons with Eagle rods. For the extra go power, a Nitrous Works system was added to the mix. All said and done, these goodies are good enough to make just shy of 700 hp on pump gas. He even added QA-1 adjustables on all four corners, but left the remainder of the suspension stock. Even with 4.11:1 gears in his 12-bolt rearend, it still gets driven two to three days a week and goes into kill mode during grudge nights.

'68 Impala Conv.
Colin & Robyn Pick
Blackstock, Ontario, Canada
Colin and Robyn Pick are proud to be the third owners of this all-original '68 Impala. They purchased it two years ago after deciding that their '68 Chevelle was a bit too noisy. While the 307 was replaced, the Impala's currently powered by a 300hp, 327ci small-block and still utilizes the original factory Powerglide transmission. Plans include plenty of cruises and car shows; and, seeing as this Impala's a convertible, who wouldn't be jealous?
