Long vs. Short

Camaro owners have strong opinions about which body & engine modifications offer the most “bang for the buck,” in terms of value and overall performance upgrade.

Front splitter or rear spoiler for optimal aerodynamics and down draft? Retrofit turbocharger or cold air intake? Engine tuner or new cluster gauge?

How to Choose an Air Induction System

When it comes to getting the most out of your car’s performance – Camaro, Mustang, Corvette, Challenger, you name it – there are plenty of options.

Ever since 1953, the Chevrolet Corvette has defined the classic American sportscar. Today’s latest Corvette models may not look like Chevy’s original ’53 model, but they still contain legendary Corvette DNA.

For comparison purposes, we thought it would be a good idea to contrast classic and contemporary Corvettes. Let’s take a look! Continue reading “Corvette: Classic vs Contemporary”
