BlownZ is our all-out 275 Drag Radial fourth-gen Camaro build. Backed by a Virginia Speed-built LSX 388 with a FAST XFI and CDS Gear Driven ProCharger F1-R, we look to be a serious contender in the class with high 7-second passes. It also features a Moser M9 rear end and brakes, along with a Riffle Motorsports 25.5 roll cage.
America's Sports Car can also be a performance bargain, thanks to a decade worth of depreciation. Our 2000 Y-Body is an LS-powered thrill ride anyone can afford, and we'll be turning it into a do-everything supercar with engine, suspension, and braking upgrades that won't bust a blue-collar budget.
The Chevy Nova has always been labeled as a car that couldn't handle, had small tires, and moderate power. Project Swinger is the exact opposite. This build features a Ridetech Air Suspension, GM Performance Parts LSA Crate Engine (Supercharged baby!), a Keisler/Tremec TKO-600, and plenty of Classic Industries components to make it look brand new again. Follow along as we take this rusted out X-Body to a killer multi-purpose vehicle.
Project Blueprint is the newest member of our project car lineup - a 1964 Chevelle packed with a 427 cubic inch LS3 build by Blueprint Engine. With autocrossing, open-track days and daily driving in mind, we replaced the tired suspension with a complete RideTech package and upgraded to a big-brake kit with SSBC. This Chevelle is serving it all with a no-nonsense approach to building a serious pro-touring machine.
To quote everybody's favorite post-apocalyptic car movie, "It's the last of the V8 interceptors!" Though the end has come for Pontiac as a brand, the cars live on, and our G8 GXP is healthier than ever with better handling from Forgeline, Nitto, Whiteline, and Eibach, and more power thanks to Corsa, Granatelli Motorsports, American Racing Headers, and SCT.
Nobody ever accused us of being tasteful before, but that's just what we are with our 2008 LS3-powered Corvette. Bigger brakes from Baer, new rolling stock from Toyo and Forgeline, and better breathing thanks to VaraRam and Kooks take America's sports car's factory goodness to a higher level while staying under the radar.
The LS7-powered C6 Z06 Corvette is the ultimate balance of performance and price - while the almighty supercharged ZR1 may steal the spotlight, 505 horsepower, world-class handling, and the ability to shame supercars with pricetags approaching a quarter-million dollars make the Z06 our pick as "best Corvette ever." Of course, just because we think it's the best doesn't mean we can't improve it a bit here and there.
