Travis Tisdale
Fourth-Gen Camaro SS

Quick Take: Travis Tisdale went with companies that use three capital letters in their names when it came to swapping in new goodies for his bright-red Camaro SS. Take for instance, QTP long-tube headers and Y-pipe; SLP Loudmouth exhaust; BMR subframe connectors, adjustable Panhard rod, strut tower braces, and lower control arms; and MBA chrome covers in the engine bay. Electrical upgrades include an Optima RedTtop battery.

Robert Agricola
1963 Impala

1963 Impala Agricola 2/5

Quick Take: From Vista, California, Robert said he loves taking photos of his 1963 Impala next to murals. Robert also said his wife, Virgie, dreads when he discovers a new mural to pose next to as it always involves a long trek with both car and camera. “But somehow she always loves the results,” he added. Under the hood is a 330-horsepower 327 engine with a Comp cam and 1.6 roller rockers. The transmission is a Powerglide.

John Simioni
1966 Chevelle

1966 Chevelle Simioni 3/5

Quick Take: Under the hood of John Simioni’s 1966 Malibu he calls Roadkill there’s a 454-inch big-block with a Holley double-pumper carb on top of a Stealth intake manifold with oval-port heads and roller rockers. It has a Super T10 four-speed with a 12-bolt rearend and 3.73 gears. John says “muscle cars are a passion and a hobby. I’ll take a nice day at a car show over a ball game as a priority any day.”

Alex Hafliger
1986 IROC Camaro

1986 Iroc Camaro Hafliger 4/5

Quick Take: Alex is an 18-year-old from Kincaid, Illinois, and bought his 1986 Camaro IROC Z28 when he was 16. It has the factory 305 with Tuned Port Injection and a 700-R4 automatic transmission. The IROC is completely original, and has just 68,000 miles. Alex said taking his Camaro to the Street Machine Nationals in Du Quoin, Illinois, last summer was one of the greatest experiences he’d ever had.

Pete Urban
1989 Silverado

1989 Silverado Urban 5/5

Quick Take: Pro Street is neat. Pete’s 1989 Chevy Silverado C/K1500 shortbed, Fleetside pickup is a former show truck with only 14,400 miles. Underneath the Silverado’s cowl hood is a fire-breathing 5.7-liter Vortec small-block mated to an extra-beefy 700-R4 automatic overdrive transmission. Body mods include a molded-in steel roll pan, shaved tailgate handle, custom taillights, flip-up fiberglass bed lid, and smoothie front bumper cover.
