'70 Chevelle Robert Michell Waxhaw, NC
Just $450 is all it cost Robert Michell to buy this '70 four-speed Chevelle back in 1983. The tired 350 quickly left for a much more powerful small-block, but that one didn't last long either. By the next year, Robert built a 454 to drop in. Finally satisfied with the grunt, Robert proceeded to work on the interior and suspension, but the paint and body were always a low priority. That didn't stop him driving it every time the weather was nice, however. Finally in 2009, Robert sent the Chevelle off to the soda blaster to strip it down and prepare it for paint after 25 years of waiting.
'80 Camaro Kelly Crawford Franklin, MA
The first time Kelly Crawford saw a Camaro, she knew she had to have one someday. She just never figured she'd be restoring one herself, getting greasy, and earning a few busted knuckles along the way. With guidance from Sic of It All Customs, he's learned a lot, and taken the Camaro from a rusty and rotted mouse haven to a respectable running and driving project car. There are quite a few more block-sanding sessions to come, but when she's finished the Camaro will get a slick black coat of paint.
