This 980 Horsepower '66 Chevelle Has A Fighter Jet Cockpit

The 2014 SEMA show was a very good one for American muscle, with cars like the Ford Mustang King Cobra and the revival of the famous Yenko Camaro. But the SEMA Muscle Crown (Is that a thing?

1969 Camaro is voted the best Chevrolet of all time

As part of their 100 year celebration Chevrolet set up a weird bracket style voting system in an attempt to pick the best car the company ever produced.

Twin turbo 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle is one awesome sleeper

It is easy to mistake this 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu for a nicely restored stock car. Unless you happen to notice the unique "white wall tires" mounted on the stock 15x7 wheels, there is nothing to suggest this car is any different from the average cruise night Chevelle.
