As a car enthusiast and hotrod artist, I have always had a fascination with cars of all types. I am like a kid in a candy store when it comes to cars, and as long as they have that SIN-ful style (SIN - Style, Intrigue, and Nobility) as I like to call it, I am content to enjoy their sweet beauty. However, there are a few cars like the second-gen Camaro that have always had a special place in my heart since early childhood. So when I got a call from Heath, at Heath Elmer Restorations, to work up a rendering for a client’s ’70 Camaro, I was excited to put the ideas to paper.

Working with Heath, the plans for this Camaro were laid out, The commanding stance and handling would require a DSE subframe, coilovers, mini tubs, and QUADRALink, allowing the body to rest perfectly over the three-piece Rushforth 18-inch wheels. Adding to the exterior styling, door handles from a late-model Buick were grafted in, while an Anvil carbon-fiber hood, deck lid, and spoilers would be revealed through the Lemans Blue paint scheme. To ensure that the car will perform as good as it looks, a 427 big-block will reside under the hood, with a T56 Magnum transmission transferring all that power to the rear wheels.

Heath is a master at his craft and bringing this Camaro into reality is already well underway.
