Intimidating 69 camaro
Ed Capen of Goodguys, explained the significance of the special exhibit.“Nothing quite like this has been done before,” Capen said.
The Golden Anniversary ’69 Camaro Exhibit will feature a wide range of ’69 models.The action-packed days were separated by a spectacular TGIF party at Detroit Speed in nearby Mooresville, complete with barbecue, shop tours, and live music from James Otto.Thousands of cars filled the CMS infield both Friday and Saturday, many of them vying for a Builder’s Choice Top 10 from Kyle Tucker at Detroit Speed.Beyond those fortunate 10, dozens more went home with picks and awards from the Goodguys staff, including two finalists for 2019 Top 12 awards – Bill Brunker’s ’67 GTO for the MSD Muscle Car of the Year, and Ed Vannoy’s ’67 Chevy C10 for LMC Truck of the Year Late.There was also a PPG Dream Car Pick – Butch Poe’s ’63 Nova – plus a Fuel Curve Pick given to Glenn Sinon’s ’72 Maverick.“We’re putting out the call this early to allow for those who would like to be part of the exhibit time to plan.
If you have built/restored a significant Camaro or know of one, we would like to speak with you,” Capen emphasized. The 5,000-mile round trip haul from California to Columbus and back this past summer paid off for Sean Provost and the South City Rod & Custom crew when Provost’s “Mafia” ’70 C10 nabbed a 2018 LMC Truck of the Year Late finalist spot.
It’s refreshing to see a ’70s truck like Sean’s C10 rolling out of South City Rod & Custom – a shop well known for traditional hot rods and customs.
Sean is quick to thank his wife for supporting his passion, Travis for selling him the truck, and the crews at South City Rod & Custom, Compani Color, and DJ Designs for the excellent work turning his dream into a reality.
The most notable mods are the one-piece side windows, shaved fuel filler, and perfectly gapped panels.
The front bumper was narrowed, tucked and shaved, as were the drip rails.
