Last week, we took a stock 1967 Chevelle (the Super Chevy AMD Chevelle) and transformed it into a Pro Touring car in a week. We called the event CPP Week to Wicked presented by Super Chevy and Axalta, and hopefully, many of you followed along from home. On day one, we had the car completely stripped down to a shell. On day five, we had it running, driving and did the gnarly burnout we promised our loyal fans. Day six and seven were spent checking the fluids, setting the alignment, and doing a few other odds and ends to ready the car for the road.

Amazingly, and with the help of some truly talented people, we got the car done within our one-week deadline. Today, which is day 8, we will be hitting the road for Arizona. The first stop on the drive is at Westech Performance in Mira Loma, California where we will put the car through its paces on the chassis dyno to see what it actually sends to the tires. From there, it’s off to Hot Rods by Dean where we will give the car a once over just to make sure all is well with so many new parts in the equation. We’ll then hit some desert sights as we work our way north looping back South to Tucson where the good guys at Tucson Dragway are going to let us make a pass.

It’s 6:30 in the morning as I write this, and we will be taking off for the rollers in just under an hour. We’ve left a lot of the drive open-ended and will go where the sights of the open road take us.

Wish us luck and stay tuned for more updates from the road.

What is CPP Week to Wicked Presented by Super Chevy and Axalta?

It all begins the morning of April 18 when our stock 1967 Chevelle will roll into Super Chevy’s Santa Ana Tech Center for a full teardown and rebuild. We’ll be pulling the car down to its bones, replacing steering, suspension, powertrain, drivetrain, and just about everything else you can possibly imagine; all with the goal of bringing the performance of a 1967 Chevelle up to par with modern muscle cars. It’ll be a mad rush till the very last seconds of our timeline. And if that wasn’t enough, immediately following the build, we’ll be driving the car on a 1,000-plus-mile road trip to prove its road readiness. We’ll be hitting the drag strip, the engine dyno, and a few scenic local sites!

How can you follow along from home? The entire event will be covered on SuperChevy.com via daily video and story updates, as well as on all of our social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Stay tuned for what is sure to be one heckuva ride!
