Mike and Jim Ring, owners of Ringbrothers, will never be accused of building the "same old, same old" when it comes to crafting badass classic muscle. Their cars have landed in the top five contenders for the Goodguys Street Machine of the Year (SMOTY) more than a few times, and they’ve taken the top prize twice. Not bad for a couple of guys who started out doing more collision repair than custom work. This time the focus of their creative juices is on this ’71 Camaro owned by Robert and Charlene Venne. The couple has given the brothers free reign to transform the second-gen into rolling automotive art. Nearly every metal panel on the car, inside and out, is getting the full-custom treatment. The front fascia has been completely transformed and will come off the car in one piece, the bumpers tucked, and trick pass-through rock guards were hand-fabricated. Under the hood resides a Mast Motorsports 650hp LS7 backed up by a Tremec TKO-600 five speed. To handle any curves the Venne's might encounter, the front suspension was treated to a complete Detroit Speed Inc. hydroformed subframe while the rear got a custom four bar with a Watt’s link. Baer brakes will handle the stopping duties, and the Camaro will roll on Forgeline wheels wrapped in BFG rubber.
Hopefully we can scam a ride once this killer car hits the road!
