Even after 20 years, Super Chevy Show attendees are still proud of the awards they’ve received. We spotted these two plaques from the ’92 show in someone’s trunk, and were doubly impressed that the clocks still worked!
Talk about a pair of giants. That’s what’s nice about a Super Chevy Show; you never know what kind of pairing you will get at the starting line.
A rare and unusual car parked on fullsize row was Steve and Vinnie Hasenock’s ’69 Caprice. Unrestored with 60,179 miles on the clock, it had the 335 HP version of the 427 under the hood, and an M20 four-speed behind it, both rare sights to see in a luxury-minded Caprice. Other options include Positraction, power steering, front buckets with console, AM pushbutton radio, and the vinyl top.
This ’63 Impala belongs to Larry Clark. He actually came to the event to show the car, but his friends talked him into running it on the track. Larry’s buddies joked and laughed that it would kill his chance of winning an award. We decided to give Larry a Drag Car award for how clean the car is, so Larry got the last laugh.
This ’70 Vette belongs to Frank Fernandez and has a 496 stroker big-block, Tremec five-speed, along with power windows and A/C. What caught our eye was the paint job and classic Mini Lite rims.
A regular at the Denver show and survivor Camaro enthusiast, Dave Beem had an amazing find to show the world. This Cortez Silver ’69 Z/28 is a legit barn find Dave rescued from California in 2012. Built at Van Nuys, this particular Z had some interesting options on it, including an Endura Bumper, factory tach and console gauges, 4.10 gears, chambered exhaust, M21, and a “—“ paint code denoting factory stripe delete. The car spent its entire life in California till 2012, and only has 33,000 miles on the odometer.
