Does your ride have power, handling, and cool looks? We're not just asking about your weekend cruiser, but your daily driver. Sure, that big-block Chevelle in the garage is unbeatable, dialed in, and really turns heads when it thumps into the local hangout on Friday nights. But during the rest of the week it takes a daily driver with good performance, the right appearance, and plenty of automotive cooperation to haul you to work, school, and on your parts chases.
To many CHP readers, this all happens in late-model half-ton pickups, third-gen Camaros, or S-10s. These vehicles offer platforms that allow easy performance upgrades, and are rear-wheel drive, affordable, and have most late-model creature comforts like air conditioning. But the best part is that whether you want to build one of these vehicles as an everyday performance driver or a performance machine, there are many fun and affordable performance mods that are easy to do.
