On both fronts, Adam Martin certainly can. As a sixteen year-old in 1990s Minnesota, Martin used his pizza-making earnings to buy a ridden-hard, primer-gray 1968 Chevrolet Camaro...

Driven by Design: 1967 Chevrolet Camaro

Driven by Design: 1967 Chevrolet Camaro

Chevy flattered Ford by imitating, and engineered the Camaro on an existing platform (the refreshed, soon-to-be-released ’68 Nova’s) just like Ford’s Mustang to decrease costs. Did it work?

I marveled at its beauty and even took a couple photos before deciding to give it another go...

Modern Cars No Comparison for a '67 'Vette

I enjoy the satisfaction and happiness others get when seeing and asking questions about the car. I routinely get a “thumbs up” from other drivers on the road and many want me to roll down the window, just to ask about the car. When I drive the car, I feel like I’m back in time, to the year 1967. It’s a feeling one just can’t get driving a modern day car.

Why the Chevrolet Corvair Corsa Is Collectable

Why the Chevrolet Corvair Corsa Is Collectable

Not only could the Corsa pack 180hp, but it also included larger brakes borrowed from the Chevelle, a stronger differential ring gear, and significant chassis refinements were made. Sadly, the Corsa was short-lived, remaining in production for only two years. But a relatively short production run coupled with the most powerful engine for the model means that it is the most collectable model and will easily remain so.
