SEMA Show 2018
For SEMA 2018, Chip Foose brings a 1957 Chevrolet convertible done in a “restomod” style, with an extreme attention to detail and the perfect color choice. The car has the perfect blend of strength, reliability, and performance while still maintaining it’s iconic style that makes the 1957 Chevrolet one of the most recognizable automobiles in history.
Are your ears untrustworthy? Prefer to be one of those “show me” people instead? Watch episode thirty-four of the podcast, filmed from the Magnaflow stage in Hot Rod Alley at the 2018 SEMA Show. Includes bonus material and exclusive coverage of the show!
Each year at The SEMA Show, PPG Automotive Refinish hosts the most unique booths, featuring a fresh theme. This year was home to Camp Wannapaintem, and the Gearheads were honored to host Cristina Fronzaglia Murray, the Director of Customer Communications and Service and Jeremy Seanor of Lucky Strike Designs fame live from the lodge. We talked paint, creativity, marketing and Dewey Cox.
The Engle Brothers team up to help build a radical lowrider named Helldorado out of a car that you don’t often see getting customized. The 1968 Eldorado originally came with front wheel drive, but the brothers convert it to rear wheel drive. Then, it gets out of control, with a chop top, suicide doors, an LS engine, and tons of other cool modifications.
The gang over at Cotati Speed Shop have been busy busting along on this radical 1968 Camaro for USAC Silver Car champ Brian McClish and his dad Mike. While the car may look like some modern racer, it has some great styling ties to the old days at LeMans, and really brings the Sprint Car flavor, using the very engine that Brian won his championship with for motivation. It even has ties to our podcast team. Get the full scoop here.

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.
