Check out this hot Chevrolet Camaro tuned with Limited Edition 22″ CV1s! So Fresh, so Clean!

Want some more super cool muscle cars? Check out this 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS LS5 Convertible! The set price is $119,900.00 and it is available at RK Motors Charlotte:
If you watched the recent Scottsdale auctions, you already know that duplicating big-name muscle cars is big business. Last year, we featured a stunning black cherry 1970 Chevelle LS5 convertible that was about the most beautifully executed clone wed ever seen, and it sold for $75K substantial sum to a very happy enthusiast. Just two months ago, we sold a Fathom Blue LS5 Convertible tribute for $80,000.00 and we had five guys asking us when we would be getting another, while lamenting being too slow to pull the trigger.
But in reality, nothing compares to the real deal, especially when youre talking about high-end investment-grade cars like this 1970 Chevelle SS convertible. Yes, it is a real SS, a real LS5 car, and has been authenticated by none other than Jerry MacNeish of Camaro High Performance. It packs a date-code correct engine and transmission, and has been highly detailed for show. Only 4574 LS5s were built in 1970, and of those, only a fraction were convertibles, making this a very rare piece indeed. See more, click on read more and take a look at the gallery!
Take a look at this 1970 Chevrolet El Camino SS 454 LS6. Found this masterpiece on eBay listed for US $127,500.00. Here’s the description:
What an incredible way to end a wonderful year! Chevrolet muscle car collectors, wake up! I don’t know about you but I had never seen one of these cars in my life until this jewel arrived at our dealership a few days ago. Please feast your eyes on this perfect, rotisserie restored, numbers matching and fully documented 1970 Chevrolet El Camino SS 454 LS6. It seems that only (2) of these incredible vehicles have surfaced in the last decade or so and they were both bench-seat, auto-on-the column cars. To obtain a real 1970 Chevrolet El Camino SS 454 LS6 with its original factory Muncie M22 4-Speed transmission is truly a Chevrolet collectors dream!
When she was built on the first week of February 1970, she was obviously built for one reason and one reason only, going very fast from point A to point B. The fact that she was ordered with Cowl Induction, Factory Tachometer, Power Front Disc Brakes and the Radio Delete Option states the obvious. Early in life, she was raced and was very well known in the Kitimat BC area (see vintage photos and newspaper clippings). Fast forward to 2011. A no-expense spared, concours nut & bolt restoration was just completed on this LS6 El Camino and she retains her original numbers matching motor, original numbers matching Muncie M22 4-Speed Transmission and the original 4.10 positraction rear axle.

New York independent filmmaker created winning Camaro ad
Advertisement to air during Super Bowl XLVI
DETROIT – “Chevy Happy Grad,” an ad submitted by 26-year old Long Island resident Zach Borst, will be aired during the telecast of Super Bowl XLVI, beating out submissions by independent filmmakers from around the world as part of Chevrolet’s Route 66 Super Bowl ad contest.
The ads had more than 32 million total online views between December 22 and January 14.
“We asked filmmakers to depict life’s journey and how Chevrolet is there along the way,” said General Motors Global Chief Marketing Officer Joel Ewanick. “When I saw Zach’s spot, I had to laugh, because the situation is something many families can related to – expectation and reality. ‘Happy Grad’ clearly shows the passion that Chevrolet elicits.”
Borst’s audience on Super Bowl Sunday is expected to exceed 110 million television viewers. “Chevy Happy Grad” was filmed on location near his home on Long Island during a weather window that offered Zach, his cast and crew only four hours to complete the project.
“My Dad was a cop and worked real hard to be able to buy his kids their first cars. They were used, but mine meant the world to me,” Borst said. “Then I wondered what it would look like if I got a brand new Camaro? I mean, after all, who wouldn’t want a Camaro as a graduation gift?”
Borst, an aspiring filmmaker, has been producing films since his childhood and founded his own production company, Goat Farm Films, based in New York. Watch it after click on Read more!
Dave Strickler’s 1968 Camaro Z/28 “Old Reliable”
Ok, this one is a real thing… and with list price: US $499,900.00 RK Motors Charlotte provides a real iconic muscle car. Here are the details:
Automotive history lives and breathes at RK Motors Charlotte. You know we are passionate about vintage racing, having completely restored “Project Six Pack” to its original state, and more recently presenting the legendary Arlen Vankes 1967 HEMI Barracuda. Today we are pleased to announce yet another milestone race vehicle coming to us from one of the top names in the Camaro hobby. The car is Dave Sticklers 1968 Camaro Z/28 that won the 1968 Super Stock World Championship, and the man is Camaro historian and authenticity expert, Jerry MacNeish. The car has been comprehensively restored to as-raced condition, including some incredibly rare NOS items that came from Jerry’s personal collection. If there is a more thoroughly documented, well-known, relevant and accurate early Camaro out there, I’d like to see it. Make no mistake: this is the ultimate Z/28 and the cornerstone of any significant Chevrolet muscle collection.
Racing legend Dave Strickler dominated NHRA Super Stock racing during the 1968 season with this Bill “Grumpy” Jenkins-prepared Z/28 Camaro. Equipped with a stock intake manifold and carburetor, a stock hood, Stahl Headers, 5.38 gears, and nine-inch slicks, the “Old Reliable” ran elapsed times in the 11.70s at roughly 116 mph, which made it competitive with many big block Super Stock Camaros of the same time period. Its dominance culminated in two of Sticklers biggest wins: on Sunday, October 6, 1968, Strickler drove to a decisive victory over a stellar field at the NHRA Super Stock All-Star Meet at Englishtown Raceway Park. Two weeks later, he went on to capture the 1968 Super Stock World Championship in Tulsa, Oklahoma, then the most prestigious S/S event on the NHRA calendar. Read more and see the gallery!
