Why Are There 1970-1/2 Camaros?

  Why Are There 1970-1/2 Camaros? You may have noticed that some 1970 Camaros are designated 1970-1/2. Things had been right on schedule for the all-new Camaro body stampings at Fisher Body, when during what is called "final die tryouts" right before production stamping begins, the quarter-panels kept wrinkling and splitting. The body dies required too much draw for the sheetmetal to cooperate. Fisher decided to reconfigure the draw dies, which are the two halves needed to pound out a fender or panel from flat sheet stock. This required a short delay. Unfortunately, the resulting quarter-panels stamped from the new dies were worse than the previous attempt.

For now we’ re just going to enjoy our reborn Camaro and start planning our next weeklong project. More on our Week to Wicked 1972 Camaro Build !

  We Live in the Age of the Muscle Supercar <p>Many of the muscle cars of today have enough performance to slap European sports cars in the face.</p>The current king of Camaros was announced last week to have set a 7:16 time around the Nurburgring, which is faster than the time set by the 488 GTB. The engineering that propelled the ZL1 1LE around the 'Ring faster than Ferrari's volume seller is not restricted to the car's 6.2-liter, 650-horsepower LT4 V-8, or a wing stolen from a Beechcraft mounted atop the trunk, it's the car's DSSV suspension, which allowed the last generation of Camaro Z28 to corner as well as the Porsche 918.

  Reader’s Ride: After Looking 34 Years He Finds 1974 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 of His Dreams I have been into muscle cars since I was 14 and have owned (and still own) many: a 1969 Chevelle, 1972 El Camino, 1970 Nova, 1975 and 1977 Trans Ams, 1970 Buick Wildcat, 1971 Camaro, pro touring 1970 Chevelle, and this one, a 1974 Z28. Research Research New Used New & Used Make (e.g. Mazda) Model (e.g. MX-5 Miata) I had been looking for one since I was 14 and saw one in a neighbor's garage with the big Z28 callout on the hood. I'm 49 now, and last year I finally found one. It came from a collection in Maine. This was the last car he had left, and he still had not decided for sure to sell it, but we worked out a deal.

1969 Camaro being built for performance!

  1969 Camaro being built for performance! Classic Chevys are more loved for their classic lines than for their dated suspensions or even their cool sounding, but by today’s standards, power-lacking drivetrains.&nbsp;It all started with a stalled project Tim found local to him in Rancho Cucamonga, California. The 1969 Camaro had been undergoing a complete restoration when the project ground to a halt. Since it was missing a drivetrain, something he would have discarded anyways, it was perfect for what he had in mind. Before work stopped on the Camaro it had been body worked straight and shot in Aztec Gold period-correct paint. Tim dug the retro color, feeling it would add to the Camaro's sleeper status.

Checking of some of the day one action as we work to transform a boring 2nd gen Camaro into a pro-touring high-performance ride.
