…It’s Tuner Tuesday: C1-RS?


I got a chance to check out the Roadster Shop’s C1-RS Corvette this past weekend at the Goodguys West Coast Nationals, and was AMAZED by the level of detail in this award winning street machine. (Street Machine of the Year to be exact.)

Under the hood lies a 618 horsepower LS7 with a T-56 transmission that does its best to transfer all 640ft lbs of torque, while Detroit Speed & Engineering suspension keeps the tires planted and 14” Brembos bring everything to a stop.

Outside, the ‘vette features carbon fiber side louvers, a front end that was entirely customized out of aluminum (including all grills, grille surrounds, front bumper and grille bar) and a rear end with enough carbon fiber to make an F1 team jealous.

Inside, it’s all luxury, with Italian leather, Alcantara suede, a hand-sculpted aluminum dash, and Classic Instruments carbon fiber gauges all around.

In sum, it’s a car that has been thought through, massaged over and customized to perfection, with few peers and no substitutes.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Ring Brothers’ 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.

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.
