"Something Old ... Something New ...Something Borrowed ...Something Blue."

I've worked on my fair share of Camaros over the past few years and I have had requests for all kinds of body and paint modifications ranging from the very mild to the borderline insane. One project that falls neatly in the middle is this custom Glacier Blue '69 Camaro. A friend and client of mine, Josh Kalis (professional skateboarder and custom car builder) came to me with this project and we spent some time coming up with the right look for it.

We came up with a simple two-tone paint scheme that utilized the Camaro's original factory color and some unique body modifications that would set the car off from other first-gen Camaros out there. The front fenders feature heat extractors styled after those on the new ZR1 Corvette and the stamped gills in the rear quarter panels were dropped in favor of a functional brake cooling duct. I feel the car is a nice blend of old and new. It's not trying too hard to be the most groundbreaking Camaro out there, yet it still looks unique enough to stand out.

The car also features Forgeline WC3P wheels with centers finished in white while the satin black lips tie in with the blacked out trim on the rest of the car. Stopping the car are six-piston Baer brakes and a set of two-piece rotors. The stance comes courtesy of an Air Ride suspension, which gives it the low-slung, Pro Touring style stance while maintaining adjustability and comfort. Bringing another modern touch to this car is the updated lower front spoiler, built in carbon fiber by Anvil Auto. I think that all of these features combine to create a classy, yet racey '69 Camaro infused with up-to-date style.
