It is our first annual “Show of Muscle”™ car show and food drive. This is a free event and open to everybody. If you have any non-perishable items you would like to donate, we will be happy to collect it and make sure it gets distributed to needy families for the holidays (unwrapped toys will also be accepted).

As this is our inaugural event, we have worked extra hard to acquire some very distinctive and rare cars to show, like a one of a kind 1969 ZL1 Camaro, 1 of 16 1967 Corvette L89s, 1 of 188 1971 Corvette LS6s, 1962 Ferrari GTO replica, Mosler MT900s, 1964 Pontiac Grand Prix, 1999 Ferrari 550 Maranello, 1967 Corvette 427/435hp Convertible, 1966 427/425 Corvette Coupe and a 1969 factory race tune 560hp L88 Corvette, among many others.

There will be free beverages and finger snacks for your enjoyment, but please no eating or drinking to close or inside [...]

We just got in a 1971 LS6 Corvette! There were only 188 LS6 optioned Corvettes produced in 1971 (the only year the LS6 option was available) and was the last of the high HP (rated at 425HP) Corvettes. After 1971 the horsepower and torque numbers began to drop radically, due to the insurance companies and other bureaucracy that existed in the USA at the time.

The LS6 Corvette followed the L88 corvette of the late 1960′s and was truly a testament to the corvette lineage, as it carried on the tradition of outperforming most of the muscle car of the time. As with all the previous Corvettes, the LS6 was an option and not normally found on a dealer’s lot, so you had to know what to order to get it.

The LS6 came from the factory with hydraulic lifters, high performance camshaft, 425HP and 475LBS/FT. The crankcase could hold five quarts of oil and [...]

1969 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

Most powerful. Quickest. Only one Chevy in 1969 could say this: the 1969 Chevrolet ZL1 Camaro. It went a step beyond the 427 Yenko and even the mighty L88 Corvette, to where few production muscle cars tread.

Drawing a bead on NHRA Super Stock drag classes, Chevy performance guru Vince Piggins authorized the factory to fit a batch of ’69 Camaros with a version of the 427-cid, all aluminum, V-8 used by the all-conquering Can-Am Chaparral. This actually was another of Piggins’ Central Office Production Order projects, and like the COPO Chevelles and Camaros being built for ’69, the ZL1 was technically a Camaro option package.

The cars began as 396-cid/375-bhp Super Sports with the F4l suspension. Engine and SS trim were deleted, and the cars were equipped essentially as other 427 COPO Camaros, with cowl-induction hood, front disc brakes, a choice of heavy-duty four-speeds or Turbo Hydra-matic, and a 4:10.1 [...]

Make sure you are checking our inventory weekly, as we have been buying and selling many fine cars this month.

We have a VERY clean 68 L-88 Convertible that will not last long.
