watts up with the 2019 ecopo camaro concept

NLicata@motortrend.com Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel was not the first to build a casino in Las Vegas, but he played a major part in the construction of the first luxury hotel/casino—the Flamingo, which opened its doors to a less-than-stellar reception on December 26, 1946. Bleeding money from the beginning, the Flamingo closed its doors in January 1947 only to reopen in March 1947 and lucky for Bugsy, it actually began turning a profit soon after. Not lucky for Bugsy, he was shot dead approximately three months later on June 20th. The story is well documented in the 1991 movie Bugsy. In 1977, SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) moved its hugely successful aftermarket parts industry show from smaller venues in California to Las Vegas due to the demand for more space and to take advantage…

Continued Family Tradition NHRA’s chase for Lucas Oil World Championship glory during 2018 included a very significant title for second-generation racer Brian McClanahan in Stock Eliminator. Racing his AA/SA 1969 Camaro, Brian clinched the prestigious World Championship during the NHRA Lucas Oil Pacific Division season finale held in Las Vegas. For Brian (Alta Loma, California), it was his first world title, but not the first for his family. McClanahan now joins his dad, Jerry, and his son Ryan on the NHRA World Champions ledger. Previously, Jerry won NHRA Stock Eliminator world titles three times (1973, 1974, and 1978), while Ryan prevailed to win the NHRA Super Stock title in 2010—all in Chevrolet cars. Sponsored by Total Trucking Service and Titan Tire Recycling (Fontana, California), Brian races a Hansen Race Cars-built Camaro…

taillights rapidly receding

SEE MORE PHOTOS AT CHEVYHIPERFORMANCE.COM The story is as old as hot rodding. Call it hot rodding lore—you know it, eyes bigger than stomach bite off more than they can chew. But this isn’t about trying to wolf a four-and-half-pound beefsteak at the Big Texan while the clock is ticking. Inexperience is the reason; ego is the driver. But growing up, Alex Wright had been indoctrinated, had been around race cars and sports cars as a youngster. “I bought the car when I was 22, and slowly started to strip it down. I had no idea how over my head I really was,” Alex confessed. But luckily the bell rang before he tried anything. “When I found out that work would take me overseas, I stashed the car in my grandfather’s barn.”…

One key to a successful electronic fuel injection conversion is, and always will be, to employ a high-quality fuel delivery system. If constant, pressurized fuel can’t make it to the injectors the best EFI system in the world will perform poorly. This may sound simple enough, but the devil is—as they say—in the details, and the fine points will make or break a good installation. It is in Holley’s best interest as a fuel injection manufacturer to come up with a quality system that will work under grueling street conditions and high-g loads. They offer a few different universal fuel tank conversion kits and the HydraMat filter/pickup works very well. But the best situation is to create a fuel tank with a built-in fuel reservoir and then make those tanks for…

50 years of the 1969 camaro

Collector Tim Schell has something like 40 cars in his expansive and impressive collection of muscle cars; and 19 of them are 1969 Camaros. Nineteen of them. “The 1969 Camaro was always the car,” he says. “There were a couple that cruised our town, including a black one with Center Line wheels. It just had the look. It was the one I, and everyone else, wanted.” Schell would be in his early 30s before time and finances allowed the purchase of his first ’69 Camaro; and his collection has mushroomed considerably in the years since, including a number of cars that have come and gone. “I got one as soon as I could afford it,” says Schell. “It’s not going anywhere, either.” For the record, Schell’s 19 ’69 Camaros include nine original COPO models—one…

five that mattered

Countless 1969 Camaros have been built for the street, strip, and more over the past 50 years. And while it would seem impossible to narrow them all down to the most important and influential, we’ve nonetheless taken a run at it. Here, then, is CHP’s list of the five most significant 1969 Camaros in the history of high performance. 1. THE FRED GIBB-DICK HARRELL ZL1 It was the first production Camaro ZL1 built and one of the 50 ordered by dealer Fred Gibb. He immediately sent it to Dick Harrell’s shop in Kansas City, Missouri, to prep it for Super Stock competition. Driven by Herb Fox, who bested Ronnie Sox’s Hemi Barracuda in eliminations during the car’s first outing, this was the car that established the ZL1 legacy. 2. LES SUTAK’S ’69 Z/28…
