Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
The Chevy Camaro celebrates is 50th anniversary with the 2017 model year. In honor of that, GM just cracked open their time capsule and cut this reel of old Camaro footage over the ages. So, is that volcano real or...?
She was knitting when the brakes went out.
Tonight on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, we uncover the best kept secret of the post-nuclear-holocaust desert: Immortan Joe’s Citadel!
What do you mean this amazing weekend of racing is over and we have to go back to work now? Here’s this year’s Indy 500 Pace Car, the 50th Anniversary Edition Chevrolet Camaro SS.
Your rad Dodge Challenger Hellcat may lord it over the other modern American muscle cars in horsepower, but not when it comes to the small overlap test.
The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1's new 6.2-liter supercharged V8 doesn’t just sound good on paper. The latest footage of the ZL1 testing on the Nürburgring sounds unbelievably good even through the cheesiest phone speakers. (Plus, they kept it off a wall this time.) Find a good sound system and crank this engine note up to…
Sometimes when you’re behind the wheel of a potent American muscle car at high speeds on a track with walls super close to the asphalt, well... shit happens. Ask me how I know this! And the poor bastard behind the wheel of this 2017 Camaro Z/28 mule knows it now too, at the Nürburgring no less.
Do you like the sixth-generation Camaro? Have you always thought it could use a few more electrons in its powertrain? Probably not, but it’s good news anyway, we promise. GM is working with 16 colleges to help design a more environmentally-conscious Camaro, and one university’s plug-in hybrid system is looking highly…
If taking your new car out for a track day and risking a parts failure is too much of a headache for your wallet, ease up if it happens to be a V8 Chevrolet Camaro.

“Stop trying to make Pontiac happen,” I said to no one in particular at the New York Auto Show last week as I stood in front of the Trans Am SE Bandit Edition booth. “It’s not going to happen.” Then I learned that these garish last-generation Chevrolet Camaro conversions were signed off on, literally, by Burt Reynolds…
Sebring International Raceway’s Chateau Élan Hotel and Conference Center features sweeping views of the circuit itself, a lively bar right next to the action, and a parking lot to bust in to A-Team-style when you lose your brakes at the hairpin. We’re glad this Camaro driver knew where the track access road went.
Getting 500 horsepower sounds simple: just stick a cheapo Chinese-made turbocharger on your equally-cheapo Chevy V8. But the actual process is a bit more involved.
Welcome to Paper Jam, the feature where we highlight the best automotive advertisements from the past! Print might be nearly dead, but our scanners are just getting warmed up.
The formula sounds simple: buy some old $800 Craigslist special and stuff an omnipresent LS in it. This is what every Internet car nerd recommends if you want cheap speed, and this is how this kind of budget build actually plays out, fuckups included.
The previous Camaro SS 1LE was one of our favorite Camaro variants. Now the performance package is coming to the one with two fewer cylinders. That means you can have a 1LE V6 with 335 horsepower and a stick. Still can’t decide which performance muscle car to buy? Well, Chevrolet just made that choice harder.
Speed. Power. Noise. Ice. And a near complete and total lack of visibility. This is why the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS is both the best and the worst car for driving in a blizzard. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
This might just be the best deal in the automotive world right now: a verified 200 mph car selling for just $60k. And of course it’s on Craigslist.
It might look like any other IROC-Z, but it doesn’t drive like one.
