Pro Street 210
Back when he was just 14, Brandon Collins of Orlando, Florida, was gifted this 1956 Chevy 210. It wasn’t in quite the same condition though, rocking a primer gray paintjob and old wheels off a third-gen Camaro, but regardless, Brandon drove it all through high school and has since built it into the Pro Street beast you see here. With the help of his dad and grandfather, he dropped in a 406ci small-block, a Turbo 400 transmission, and a Ford 9-inch. Small-blocks are fun and all, but he sees a twin-turbo LS engine in the car’s near future—budget permitting, of course.
Concours-Quality LS6 Chevelle
This 1970 Chevelle SS ticks all the boxes. Its owner, Ray, tells us it’s a true LS6 Chevelle SS454 convertible with a Muncie M22 Rock Crusher four-speed transmission. He found the car back in 2013, then it underwent a full restoration to bring it back to its former glory. Since then, the car has won the Standard of Exellence award at the 2016 Carlisle GM Nationals and has been invited to the Concours d’Elegance in New Jersey.
Z28 for the Street
Mike Burbank’s 1983 Camaro Z28 was built to be the ideal driver. He tossed out the stock engine in favor of a two-bolt main small-block 350 bored out to 355 ci and topped with Vortec 906 heads, an Edelbrock Performer spread bore intake manifold, and a Quadrajet 750-cfm carb. A Lunati Voodoo camshaft, MSD ignition, and Hedman 1 5/8-inch headers round off his list of engine mods. A beefed-up 700-R4 transmission sends power back to a 3.42:1 Posi rear from an IROC-Z. His Camaro has just the right modifications to give him all the fun he could want but still keeping it tame enough to enjoy on the streets.
