The definition of a pro touring build is to take a classic beauty like this ’73 Camaro andfill it with modern internals and a high horse power engine. It's been done over and over to the point where it’s really no big deal anymore. However, every now and then there comes a build that really pops out on thecar showcircuit. Here's an example of what I'm talking about. With only2200 miles since a complete nut and bolt rotisserie restoration, this carwas featured in a 5 page article of Chevy High Performance Magazine in December of 2009. With a modern suspension, a luxurious suede interior, and a 425 hp engine, this Camaro is the envy of any speed demon looking tocapture the heartbeat of America.
