Brandon Zambrano’s ‘10 Chevy Camaro

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Brandon Zambrano, owner of Saints Motorsports, set out to build a one-of-a-kind ride that was as at home cruising the boulevard as it was tearing up the track. Once he saw the new ‘10 Camaro he knew his search was over and ordered one of the first off the lot.

Rich Jones; 1969 Chevy Camaro; Tucson, AZ

Rich Jones of Tucson, Arizona, stumbled across his ‘69 Camaro a couple of years back when it was an unfinished project for sale in the classifieds. Call it custom car karma, but Rich always wanted a pro touring Camaro and what better year to build than a ’69, considering this was the pinnacle year for Chevrolet’s pony car program of the late-‘60s as well as the basis for GM’s retro-themed ‘10 Camaro of today. Having owned and built his fair share of hot rods and muscle machines in the past, Rich found himself ready to wrench again when he spotted this diamond in the rough.

This Big-Block Camaro Looks Good From all Angles

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

It’s hard to believe that this car was designed and built in three months.

Friday, August 12th, 2011

Passersby can’t help but notice Camaro Concepts’ rather unique sign on top of the building. Made from the front clip of a ’69 Camaro RS/SS, the vacuum-operated headlights, side markers and turn signals all function. Also note the unique Texas “TEST CAR” license plate. It’s the real deal!

As its name implies, Houston’s Camaro Concepts specializes in the parts sales, restoration and modification of Chevrolet Camaros from 1967 to the present, as well as other popular makes of GM muscle cars, like Corvette, Chevelle, Nova and full-size Chevrolet.

In the annals of hot rodding there is a rich history of cutting off body parts, and no, we’re not talking about your high school auto shop teacher (ours was missing about a finger and a half). We’re talking about shaving things like drip rails. For those who live in Washington State, drip rails may actually be a good idea, but for the rest of us they look awful. (more…)

There is simply nothing like pounding on the skinny pedal and shaking your fist at the shifter as you throttle your way through a curvy asphalt playground. (more…)
