Larry Callahan runs the website Pro-Touring****, and his own twin turbocharged 1968 Camaro is a textbook example of the kinds of cars the website is built around. The "MotiV8r" Camaro features every pro-touring trick in the book, and was built by Prodigy Customs to run as good as it looks. Video from the 2009 Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational DVD.

Our 1968 Camaro had some bad rust around the windows thanks to the original vinyl top holding moisture and corroding the steel below. In this video, we repair all that with a some new panels from Classic Industries, some 3M cutting and grinding tools, our HTP MIG 200 welder, and a Body Solder kit from Eastwood. As always, we strive for an undetectable repair.

This 1968 Camaro is being built to drive, both on city streets and the in occasional track-day event. To accomplish this, we decided to install a Detroit Speed QUADRALink rear suspension system on the Currie 9+ rear axle assembly. The QUADRALink is a highly adjustable 4-link system utilizing a panhard bar and adjustable coil-over shocks. This design eliminates the stock suspension's leaf spring wrap-up issues, and allows for more precise ride height adjustment and the quick spring rate changes coil-overs offer. The Currie 9+ axle assembly features a new fabricated housing, 3.50:1 gears, a Detroit Truetrac differential, 31 spline axles, and all new bearings and seals for a rock-solid foundation. All these parts will add up to a comfortable street machine that won't be unstable on the track. Part 1 of 2.

All the metal work on our 1968 Camaro project, "Reloaded", was finally done. The next step was to send the body tub to the sand blaster to find any hidden rust. Once we got the car back, we repaired any rust we couldn't find before and put the whole car in BASF Black Epoxy Primer. Next, gap adjustments and body work!

The 1968 Camaro "Reloaded" is on the streets, and we're quite happy with the end result. The car drives and handles better than it ever did thanks to the Detroit Speed suspension and the FAST EZ-EFI fuel injected 490 inch big block Chevy engine. The TCI 4L80E overdrive transmission shifts firmly and is programmable thanks to the EZ-TCU controller. It sounds great thanks to the MagnaFlow exhaust, and the overall look is crisp and contemporary thanks to the BASF Silver Bullet and Gunsmoke stripes. Loads of Classic Industries restoration parts make the car look new, and the Vintage Air keeps the occupants nice and cool going down the road. The Comp Thumpr cam rumbles, and the MSD Igntiion lights it off with ease. Reloaded has won awards at every show it's been to, but it was built to be driven! Contact us at www.v8speedshop**** to find out how we can build one for you!
