Generational Impala SS

Tim Brown’s 1963 Chevy Impala SS has been in the family since it rolled off the showroom floor decades ago. His grandfather purchased the 327 Turbo-Fire, four-speed, on March 7, 1963, and held onto the car until he passed away in 1979. Then Tim’s mother used the car as her daily driver for a few years before the car was parked in the backyard. Finally, in 2005, Tim restored the Impala to its former glory and now takes meticulous care of it to this day.

1972 Nova 2/3

Classic ’70s Muscle

This Marina Blue 1972 Nova is the product of years and years of tinkering by Brian Dacey. He purchased the Nova back in 1988 for a meager $180 and has since modified it to be just the way he wants it. And the way he wants it is with a 355ci small-block bolted to a TH350 transmission and 12-bolt rearend with a 3.73:1 rear gear. With a little help from an NOS Powershot, the Nova has made a best run of 11.40 at 116 down the quarter-mile.

1978 Camaro RS 3/3

Styled-up Second Gen

Emphasizing his car’s inherent strengths, Keith Greene turned his 1978 Camaro RS into a stylish corner-carving beast. To get from stock to where it is today, he upgraded the Camaro’s front suspension with QA1 coilovers and upper and lower control arms and a Hotchkis sway bar. In the rear lives QA1 shocks and 2-inch-drop leaf springs. A 350ci small-block and four-speed give the car ample acceleration while a Wilwood front and The Right Stuff rear disc brake combination bring the car down from speed. Pro Car seats by SCAT, Simpson five-point harnesses, and 18x8 Riddler wheels wrap up his list of modifications.
