There were hundreds of deserving show cars at the Super Chevy Show at Virginia Motorsports Park this past weekend, so narrowing the field to 10 was a difficult chore. Here were our selections.
Powered by an LS2 with a 6-speed manual, Ronnie Staples' unusual '57 Chevy features a number of subtle twesks including a business coupe roofline, front fenders with a slight forward slopes and side trim that's been lengthened 8 inches among other things.
Hailing from Virginia Beach, VA, Ronnie Lloyd's 1972 Cheyenne Super 10 features a 350 V8 with an automatic, 20-inch rims to fill the wheel well along with red orange & white two tone paint to produce a really nice pickup that's pleasing to the eye.
Gilbert Carter's 2002 ZO6 Vette with the 5.7L LS series engine is a great car to buy & customize these days. We liked the tasteful mods and overall look.
Another Editor's Top 10 Show Car pick was Ed Corl's Chevy II, featured a 4.3L V6 with a 4-71 Roots blower with electronic injection running on E-85. Backed by a TH-350 transmission, Corl's car dyno'd at 525 hp at the crank on just 8 lbs. of boost.
When Steve Heath of Kinston, NC, brought this car home in disassembled pieces, few people would have probably expected to see what he has today. This 1968 Chevelle SS 396 automatic drew a lot of admirers.
David Kissner of Chester, VA, drew attention with this unrestored, all original Nova SS. This Editor's choice came with a 350, 4-speed, dog dish hub caps and an AM radio.
Lisa Taylor of Woodbridge, VA, debuted her modified '69 Camaro at Virginia and won an Editor's Choice. While her husband has a '67 Camaro, she says this is her car. She works on it and also drives it every weekend.
Brad Corwin of Chesapeake, VA, turned some heads with this 1959 Impala.
Having a cool ride isn't always about doing an exact resto or making gobs of horsepower. Rick Booth went with just a crate 350 to go along with some killer good looks to make a great boulevard cruiser.
It may not have seen the track yet, but Angela Naff's 2013 COPO Camaro was still the talk of the late model pits.
