Mission: 69 Camaro Z/28

By Don Workman I have admired classic cars for as long as I can remember, but thought that running a business and other recreational activities wouldn’t allow me time to indulge. In 2001, a slick 1969 Mustang GT fastback with a 351, automatic, fell into my lap – and that was all she wrote. It […]

Off the Grid

If you’re even remotely tech savvy, you’ve more than likely heard that phrase before. If you’re old school and have somehow managed to avoid technology so far, I gotta say, I am somewhat envious. I’ve heard it said that even most 2 year olds already have a “digital footprint”. Meaning they’re on the grid – […]

Why Don’t They Make That Part?

Why don’t they make it for my car? Story and photography supplied by Colin Date One of the most common questions in classic Chevy car circles is: “Why don’t they make this part for my car?” As a supplier and manufacturer to the aftermarket for many years, we will attempt to answer this question and […]

1974 Camaro z/28 Type LT

1974 Camaro z/28 Type LT By Bob Hoke, Eckler’s Senior Product Marketing Manager I have owned my 1974 Z/28 Type LT since 1989 or 1990, depending on what part of it you are talking about. I have only owned one other car longer. My attraction to it started in high school when a friend bought a […]

Summer Memories

It’s that time of year again – summer! These are the times we look so forward to all winter long – warm summer days that blend seamlessly into the night, giving us plenty of time for those classic car get-togethers. It’s the time we hit the car shows and enjoy the company of fellow automotive […]

1969 Camaro Pace Car: Greetings from Denmark

By Morten Gadegaard, Holstebro, Denmark This rare big-block 1969 Camaro Pace Car is one Dane’s dream realized. When people say “pace car”, the 1969 Camaro comes into your mind. At least it does for me, I think it is epitome of Indy Pace Cars. The dream of owning one started back in 1988 when I […]

Tire Cleaning: 101

This may seem like a super simple little project, but believe me, when your tires have been coated in primer overspray, it’s not. Our project Chevelle was in the shop undergoing bodywork, primer, more bodywork, more primer, some finessing bodywork, a little more primer…well, you get the idea. The car was moved around in the […]

Rockin’ Down the Highway

Ever think about how big a part music plays as it relates to our classic car hobby? I’ve had my ear buds in for the past half hour and what comes on the iPod? The Doobie Brothers’ “Rockin’ Down The Highway”. A driving song if there ever was one! This particular tune has almost landed […]

The Cars of Cuba

The Cars of Cuba Story and Photography by Ranny Robertson #13039957, Glen Allen, VA I had the opportunity to see the cars of Cuba in February of last year on a “people to people” or “humanitarian” visa. We flew directly from Miami into Havana– it was a real step back in time. I found the […]

Manufacturing Reproduction Auto Parts

Although this feature specifically references Tri-5 Chevy parts, it will be of interest to owners and fans of all classic Chevrolets, including the earlier Camaros. All of our older Chevys utilized pot metal and the chroming process in the manufacture of emblems, bezels and other trim items. This is how it’s done. Story and Photography […]
