We are all very excited here at V8TV and the V8 Speed & Resto Shop, as we've received the high honor of being chosen to restore the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro belonging to COMP Cams! They've had the car for many years, and 2016 marks the 40th Anniversary of COMP Cams, so they wanted the car freshened up for the milestone year. We'll be documenting the restoration of the car along the way, both in photos and video.
Plans for the car include a FAST EFI equipped LS engine mated to a TCI 6X 6-speed automatic transmission, a Heidt's suspension system, updated wheels, tires, and brakes, and a fresh paint job... among many other details.
Our crew is ready to make it happen, and we're proud to work with one of the industry icons to bring this significant car up-to-date. Follow along in the a photo gallery, videos, and a build thread on this slick '69!
The V8TV 10th Anniversary Drive-In Cruise Presented by HTP America, Inc. was a huge success, and we're all very thankful to everyone who came out and made the event such a fun time for everyone. We hosted a car show, gave away some fantastic prizes, showed a special V8TV 10th Anniversary feature on the big scree, then capped off the night with a showing of Smokey And The Bandit!
If you are a fan of Pro Street cars, the Street Machine Nationals in DuQuoin, Illinois, is the place for you. Once again, some of the legendary cars came out for the Heros of Pro Street display, where back-halved chassis, giant engines, steamroller rubber, and wild colors rule the streets.
The 1968 Pontiac GTO is a great looking car, and this one came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop after the restoration metalwork had been completed. The V8 crew jumped on the car to complete the bodywork and paint process. Follow along to see the progress!
Wheels and tires can make or break the look of your Muscle Car, and if you order custom wheels in the wrong size, you're stuck with them. In this video, Kelle shows us how to properly measure wheel width, diameter, bolt pattern and size, offset, and backspacing. We also learn about tire sizes to unscramble the mystery of the numbers on the sidewall. From an early episode of V8TV.
Our friends at Gearheads4Life recently came to the shop to check out the action... the even wrote a very kind story about the shop, projects, and crew. Thanks guys!

This 1993 Mustang FOX chassis started life as a 5.0 ragtop, a respectable street cruiser at the time, but the owner wanted to take things up a notch or two. So now, its hiding a 1000 horsepower supercharged monster under the hood.
