1970 Chevrolet Camaro Additional Info:

The Ultimate build, where does it begin, where does it end and how do you know it's complete? The answer is the car pictured on this page. This is a 1970 Camaro SS with much more than a stellar paint job and some expensive wheels. This isn't just a resto-mod car with an insane price tag. This is the ultimate car. End of story. It's impossible to justify the cost of this car on paper, and even at first glance, this car looks relatively ordinary. So please, take a closer look, and the longer you look, the more you'll begin to understand and fall in love with the immaculate details that exist on every square inch of this automobile.

This 1970 Camaro really begins to make sense the second you open the Anvil hood. When your eyes first glance on the 427 that sits in the engine bay, the numbers, and the magic won't even compute, you will experience sensory overload. After the overwhelming amount of detail hits you and you're finally able to focus in on the details, things will begin to add up in your head. The 8 fuel injected Ream ITB's sticking straight out of the motor. The details continue to pile up the more and more you peak around the engine bay, every single bolt has been replaced and almost every nut and bolt on the entirety of the car came from ARP. It has a bolt-in billet firewall for that matter. Everything has been done to utter perfection in any place you look on the car. Never will you be able to peak underneath a panel or trim piece and say to yourself "oh, really?" Not a single thing on this car looks untouched or out of place.

So you've inspected the engine bay, and it's some big powerful v8 with fancy ITB's, but still, how could someone spend this much money on this car? Inside. That's where the details really begin to sink in. Everything has not only been touched, but also updated. This car has been brought to 2016 in the grandest of fashions. The hand formed metal dash, the billet instrument panel, and the billet gauge surrounds, all of which fit immaculately. Nestling so subtly inside the billet dash are AC vents, which are made from the exact same butterfly valves located inside the Ream ITB's. There was nothing left untouched when this car was built. This car wasn't just a dream brought to reality; it was a prophecy that left no detail unimagined. This car isn't as much a build or someone's nightmare to inherit, this car is perfection beyond what any engineer in a factory could ever procure.

So you've poured over the impressive interior, examined the exceptional engine bay, and it is time to put all of the visual pieces together. The moment the engine fires up, inspiration and excellence fill the air. Turning this 427 over is something no car enthusiast could ever faintly shrug off. The first bark the exhaust announces feels different than any other car. It has a low grumble that is subtle like tasting notes of a fine wine. This experience is a sublime one, not meant to jar neighbors awake, as if announcing in some machismo fashion the excellence that resides within your very garage. No, rather, this car is tuned in every facet, only to pique the interest of a passerby. However, the driver realizes a much different experience than any onlooker. The subtle idle opens to a raucous symphony that follows once the pedal is pushed down. The experience then becomes real, tangible, and austere. The exhaust barks throatily and ignites a primal instinct inside the commander of this craft. The power becomes alive; it is personified as it echoes off passing buildings as the raw speed of this Detroit machine comes to life. Innocent bystanders will immediately experience a surging heartbeat as the aural symphony explodes out the tail pipe. Then, the price tag, however irrelevant at this moment, begins to make sense. This is a toy you didn't know you needed. Now that this has been realized though, it finally makes sense. Again, this is not a fine muscle car; this is a fine driving car. It not only has the raw power and torque America has become famous for, it has an exquisite elegance about it too. Like a line backer in ballet, there is a grace and composure this car has been ascribed. Detroit speed engineering, pretty much had their way with the chassis and this car is track ready. It will thrill any automotive enthusiast with the way that it carves corners around any private circuit in the country. Once behind the wheel, this becomes an emotive driving experience, the kind you expect behind the wheel of any exotic car, but not this. It is a visceral driving experience unlike any other car, while rehashing the glory days of Detroit. As has been said before, this car was brought into 2016 using only the finest parts on the market. The way this car handles the road and track, it rivals anything being produced by anybody today.

This isn't a car you can see online and understand, this isn't a car you can walk by on a showroom floor and comprehend. This car is an experience, it is an event, and it is die-hard love, crafted from the hands of an automotive virtuoso who absolutely encapsulated everything a car should be: into the skin of a 1970 Chevrolet Camaro. It is glory, unimaginably perfected, only understood at the hands of experience. This car is everything you never knew you needed. Seldom few will ever understand it's perfection, but it's essence is exactly that.
