…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Jackass?

Jackass Camaro

The 638-horsepower LS9 from Chevrolet’s new Corvette ZR1 is the most powerful engine GM has ever made. The 1969 Camaro is (arguably) the most beautiful car GM has ever made. Combine the two, and you have a match made in heaven known (lovingly) as Jackass.

Made by Mark Stielow, the Jackass Camaro not only features the engine from the ZR1, but the GIGANTIC carbon-ceramic brakes as well.

Rounding out the package is a Tremec T56 six-speed out of a Viper, and an Art Morrison subframe to hold it all together.

In all, Mark says that it would have been “cheaper to just buy a ZR1”, but then you wouldn’t have the baddest car on the block.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Ring Brothers’ RAZOR?

RAZOR

The Ring Brothers’ RAZOR project is a 1969 Camaro taken beyond anyone’s wildest dreams, and it was recently (and deservedly) awarded the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association’s Street Machine of the Year.

RAZOR Detail

If you can see it, then it was probably customized, including a flawlessly sleek and modern exterior, carbon fiber goodies all around, custom wheels and tires, an updated interior, a beautiful paint scheme, and a 454 Ram Jet ZL1 providing the motivation.

It doesn’t get much better than that.
