When it came time to work on our 1969 Camaro aptly named Project Blank Slate, we knew that a chassis upgrade was in order.

We’ve all been guilty of treating brake fluid like most fluids under the hood. We do this because it can be such a hassle to spend time bleeding the brakes.

When it comes to American muscle cars, there is no limit to what can be done with a pro-touring goal. That is unless you’re hindered by time, money or ability to create your perfect car.

If you own it, you should drive it. We’ve fit into that group of enthusiasts for years and aim to get every ounce of driving pleasure out of our project cars. That’s why we recently set our “Y2K” project Corvette up with a C5 Line Loc Kit and a LNC-002 Launch Control system from Lingenfelter.
CC Tech, Corvette Central’s how-to library, recently added an excellent piece on brake bedding that’s a must-read for anyone who does their own pad changes.

It’s one thing to go fast, but it takes more than horsepower to get around the corners. We install Ridetech’s suspension, Stainless Steel Brake system to make it handle as good as it looks.
