Spring is here—or at least it is in some places, we’re still freezing our asses off in New York as we approach May—and that means it’s the sports car time. Time for people to put away those winter tires, drop the convertible top, and maybe even make a weather-influenced fun new car purchase. Like a 2019 Chevrolet…
It’s 1981, and a man pulls up to an intersection in his ‘52 pickup. He looks left to check for traffic. All clear. He looks right, but the van next to him is blocking the view. The man driving the van waves him through. The man in the pickup proceeds. Moments later, he is thrown from his truck, his skull cracked on…
The freshly redesigned sixth-gen 2019 Chevrolet Camaro was revealed today alongside welcomed news of a 1LE track package for the 2.0-liter turbo engine. To counter this good example of a four-cylinder Camaro, let’s look at the worst example—the third-gen 1982 car with the infamous Iron Duke engine.
The 2019 Chevrolet Camaro was revealed to the world today and, well, let’s say reactions were mixed. So we’re take that as our cue and get some strife brewing by asking a potent question: what’s the best generation of Camaro?
Oh my God, my friends, even though this happened on Friday—a whole four days ago—I’m still relishing the instant karma I was fortunate enough witness go down while I was driving. I can’t wait to tell you about it.
“CAMARO IROC-Z” blasts from the heavens. It’s time for the Camaro that’s “lookin’ so hot, so good.” Now you can own your very own Camaro named after the International Race of Champions. You can be a champion.
The ZL1 1LE-based Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R race car and its kitchen island of a wing looks and sounds terrifyingly great. It’s a championship-running race car with an exhaust note as loud as, but far more pleasant than, your home security system. And you, wealthy member of the public, can have one all for yourself.
The base-model Chevrolet Camaro was such a dork for so long. It was weak, slow and generally incapable of eliciting enthusiasm. But now it’s one of those dorks who grew up, sold an app and became a millionaire. The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro 2.0T has taken off the taped glasses and become worthy of your attention.
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.
It took more than 50 years for Steven Weber’s father to tell his son he loved him. By the time he said the words, Steven’s father was overcome with dementia, living out his final days wheelchair-bound. Yet Steven’s father is the reason he bought the ‘68 Camaro back in 1973. It’s the reason he’s held onto it all these…
The best part of this dashcam video isn’t the karma served up to this Chevy Camaro driver brake-checking another car three times in a row then losing it in an intersection and crashing up a pole. It’s watching the car flail aimlessly, more upright than desired, in reverse with no wheels on the ground.
NASCAR driver Austin Dillon didn’t get to properly celebrate his first ever Cup Series win with a big burnout. He ran out of gas just as the tires started to spin. So, to redeem the good name of the post-race burnout, he whipped out a gold-wrapped Camaro and filled a barn full of smoke.
The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE looks every bit like a weapon of mass trackstruction. Not a week after that street-legal car’s debut does the General show off its racing version. This is the Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R.
Chevrolet showed off its latest racing tribute to the Dead Milkmen and the gods of speed today, and it looks so good. The new Camaro GT4.R is based on the 2017 Camaro ZL1 road car, per IMSA, and it packs a gigantic 6.2-liter LT1 small block V8 engine that can roast tires on demand when the race is over.
Rally legend Michèle Mouton helped start the Race of Champions in 1988 to determine the best rally driver in the world, and it’s grown to include all kinds of racers. We should care about it, but it still feels overshadowed in the United States by the defunct International Race of Champions. Why? IROC had a car.
One of my favorite displays at auto shows are the engine cutaways. I love seeing how the parts move together and what does what. Imagine my delight when I saw this video of a working, 3D printed General Motors LS3 V8 engine.
I have always been a big fan of American cars, terrible handling and all. None of my friends who owned Audis, AMGs, Bimmers understood this affection. I didn’t care. It was a cheap way for me to enjoy gobs of torque, and the occasional fishtailing. (Plus, while I spent $30 for an oil change on my Ford they were…
Truly, we are living in an extraordinary time for nutjob junkyard engineering. As proof, look at this otherwise junky Malaise Era Camaro with a 6.0-liter LS V8 out of a truck with four turbos pulled off Ford Ecoboost engines. It is a monster.
I think the Dodge Viper (RIP) V10s, all versions of them, are some of the coolest engines ever made and nothing anybody can say will make me think otherwise. You can stick one in your lawnmower, or your 1968 Camaro, and you won’t hear a peep out of me.
