The Gearheads celebrate fifty episodes with an incredible insider’s look at Hot Wheels design and career arcs with Die Cast Hall of Fame members Eric Tscherne and guest-host Carson Lev. It’s a multi-layered episode with not only two influential giants, but a mentoring theme that makes for a masterclass in following your passion.
While collecting parts for a prior Z/28 Camaro project, Chip Foose stumbled across a rare 302ci engine out of a 1967 Z/28. He thought it would be really cool to find a 1967 Chevy short bed pickup and then do something that the factory designers should have done back in 1967. How about combining the body of a C-10 with the drivetrain of a Z/28, and then sprinkle some first-generation Camaro bits into the mix? And when you’re done, call it a C/28.
