My son and dad finished the 454 short block build yesterday for his 69 chevy pickup project. We have. Year before he's 16. It's coming along. Still doing more deconstruction that new build.

I'll get more pics next week after I get the detail / paint protection out in the sun...it looks black indoors but this nightfall grey is goofy & changes color in the sun. Looks lighter:

2017 ZL1: 650hp / 650 torque...loving it, but hate this break in period.

If I can find the time I really need to do a little maintenance on the '85 GT and drive it. Been collecting dust for about a year now.

Just installed seats. Got them at Decatur Swap Meet a couple weeks ago. They are from a conversion van company and fit perfectly. Have a guy here in Mineral Wells that did my Camaro seats and he will be re-doing door panels and headliner next week.

Previous owner had smoothed the dash and installed Vintage Air. I will be replacing gauges with Autometer gauges in the near future.

Wow! Some very nice Oldies! I've got a 4 door 68 Impala but it's nothing more than a bucket of rust. Grandpa gave it to me when I was in middle school with the intent that I would keep it running and work on it growing up. Parents separated not long after and we stuck it at our property for another day. I'm hoping that day comes when I have the funds to bring it back to life.

very nice turtlewax...dollar for dollar the ss 1le is arguably the best sports car for the jack.

Have you seen the ZL1 1LE version that is just now leaving the factory?? It's one sinister machine & will be a beast on the road courses.

I have seen it. They started leaving the factory last week or the one before. Only a handful being made and a 2 year wait from what i hear.

The 1SS 1LE placed 4th out of 12 supercars they tested. Faster than the Mclaren S5 in the esses at over 126 mph and can stick with the new Ferrari 488 GTB in the turns.

This car is truly unbelievable.

I took my friend for a quick ride today and he was grabbing for invisible handles. And we werent even over 4k. Still 1200 more miles of break in.

It's not a true 'limited edition' but they do not expect to make any more than 750 per year...they had to change up the front suspension to make room for the huge wheels. The front tires will be as wide as the rears on my zl1. It's really a true dedicated racer. That huge wing is a bit much for my taste in a street car, but said to function very well on the track.

One thing that is nice about the mag ride in ours is how cozy the car is in tour...you can run over a dime in track mode & feel it. Put it in tour & the car is remarkably comfortable. GM is really upping their game. I'm curious to see what/if they do with the Z28...I'm sure it will be naturally aspirated.

Also curious to see how Ford reacts with the new GT500...it will be stupid expensive & then the dealer mark up??

Oh man...did I struggle over that decision when placing the order, but went with the A10.

I also thought about waiting for the 1le version but really wanted a 50th anniversary...the 10 speed technology is simply incredible. Bunch of die hard manual guys are praising it. Even the driver at 'the ring' said it was the way to go.




Future buyers will be seeing various versions of the A10 all across Ford & GM's line although the only thing they share are the outer casing. All the innards are fine tuned for the particular application.

Im not sure about the ZL1 but the 1SS 1LE only comes manual. Not sure how that would play into the Z adding the 1LE package, may still only be manual.

I did test drive the 2SS with A10 and thought it drove really well with the auto.

Chevrolet definitely has the others looking in the mirror.

Yup, 1LE = Manual in Camaro world...they held to their roots with the ZL1 version too. The A10 is faster but story goes they needed something to fill the gap of no current dedicated track monster for the Z28. Just like 1Le is always traditionally manual, the Z28 should 'always' be a naturally aspirated power plant. We shall see.

I didn't even know they were even offering the 2018 2ss with the A10 already...I thought they were still all A8's for at least another year?? Regardless, still think the ss camaro is the bargain sports car for the coin.

Only thing that bugs me on the 1LE is the all black hood...not a bad thing, just seems odd if one wanted the full track pack but with a cleaner de-badged look.
