Trans Am Is The Best Sounding Race Series

SRT isn't completely gone from motorsports. They're still alive and kicking with partner Miller Racing, who runs a sweet lime green Challenger in the Trans-Am series. This short clip of Tommy Kendall's Challenger and another competitor's Camaro proves that Trans Am is now the best sounding race series in existence. » 11/23/14 5:02pm 11/23/14 5:02pm

Battle of the Misfits: The Camaro Z/28 versus the world

In his postmodern novel The French Lieutenant's Woman, John Fowles tells us that the heroine, Sarah Woodruff, was "the perfect victim of a caste society. Her father had forced her out of her own class but could not raise her to the next. To the men of the one she had left, she had become too select to marry; to those… » 10/23/14 4:07pm 10/23/14 4:07pm

The Camaro SS 1LE Will Make You Weep For The Way You Looked At Life

I was resolute in my obstinance. The Chevy Camaro was old, archaic, primitive, and atrocious. I would hate it with all my being. It would not change me. I would change it. I would resist. But I was wrong. So, so very wrong. Because now I am in love, and l'amour, thy name is Camaro. » 10/15/14 12:29pm 10/15/14 12:29pm

That Time I Met Dario Franchitti And Didn't Even Realize

We hosted a short press event yesterday morning at the Classic Car Club Manhattan. The good folks at GM brought along the 2014 Indy 500 Pace Car; a brand new Camaro Z28, y'know, the one that brakes so hard the tires lose traction on the wheels. Oh ya, and they brought Dario Franchitti too. » 3/26/14 9:08am 3/26/14 9:08am

Meet The Mini-Camaro GM Designed To Compete With The VW Beetle

I really love looking at stillborn car prototypes. And while it feels weird to type "love looking at stillborn" anything, there's just something about the alternate-world possibilities of them that make seeing these concepts fascinating. And I can't think of anything more fascinating than a Mini-Camaro made to compete… » 11/06/13 4:30pm 11/06/13 4:30pm

Interviews from the Subculture: Juan Capo

When I was a kid, I remember driving through Atlanta with my family on our way to Florida. It was dark and the lights on the side of the highway illuminated a car pulling up on our left. The lights played over the bright green paint and I lifted my head from the window sill to look up at a Chevy Caprice. It wasn't too… » 10/01/13 11:01am 10/01/13 11:01am

Taiwanese graveyard of old US musclecars

In the Summer of 2011, I was on a business trip to Taiwan and working in biotech, most of my time was spent visiting state-of-the-art DNA sequencing labs. Then one day in Taipei, we’re going to visit a customer - and the lab is on the first floor of a 30 year old US musclecar bumper factory! And even more oddly, both… » 7/11/13 9:38am 7/11/13 9:38am

These Iron Maidens Will Torture Your Ears

Don’t be fooled by the sweet stylings of silver screen legend Paul Newman singing a few verses from his iconic film "Cool Hand Luke". Everyone here knows his real passion was with speed. He raced sports cars in this exact race series, on this exact track, for longer than most of us have been alive and he knew first… » 6/07/13 1:18pm 6/07/13 1:18pm
