Camaro Fever

1998 Chey Camaro
David Brady
North Hammond, Indiana


David Brady is a Camaro guy by heart and has owned three so far, including the '98 shown here. His list of engine hop-ups include an SLP cold-air system, MSD wires, and a pair of long-tube headers, all of which has helped him run a solid 13.2 in the quarter-mile. David's also an avid autocrosser and stepped up big with his choice of suspension, featuring a complete set of Strano springs, single-adjustable Koni shocks, a UMI adjustable Panhard bar, a BMR shock tower brace, along with the bigger 1LE front sway bar, and the larger 21mm rear sway bar—both with polyurethane bushings. On the autocross, his rollers of choice are the factory SS wheels that are shrouded with R compound Kumho tires and switches to a set of Borbet wheels on the street.

Radial flyer

1963 Chevy Nova SS
Bill Evans
Bradenton, Florida


Bill Evans' '63 Nova has a host of body mods, including the shaved door handles, driprails, trim, and smoothed gas tank filler. But, it isn't just about looks; Bill's Chevy II runs high 10s with a 1.58 short-time on Mickey Thompson 235/60 drag radials. Propelling the ride is a built 356ci small-block with a complete Brodix top end; out back is a 12-bolt with 4.10:1 cogs.

Pro Street Heat

1968 Chevy Camaro
Mike Mularoni
Thonotosassa, Florida


Originally purchased back in 1996, Mike Mularoni handled the entire build with the exception of the paint. Mike went on to tell us, "It has a 540 Merlin big-block and a TCI Automotive TH400 with a manual valvebody. The rearend is a Ford 9-inch with 4.11:1 gears." He's been driving it for the past three years and plans to see what it'll run at the dragstrip soon. Keep us posted, Mike!

Tarmac Terror!

1968 Chevy Camaro
Cory & Hilary Wilson
Greer, South Carolina


We dig wheelies, especially when they are on drag radials. Check out Cory and Hilary Wilson's wheel-hanging '68 Camaro. The outer shine is Toyota Silver with custom purple stripes. Powering the first-gen is a fuel-injected 496ci big-block with a ProCharger F2 supercharger; his transmission of choice is a TH400 that transfers the power to the modified 12-bolt rearend.
