This clean 1969 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster is currently powered by an anemic small block Chevy and shifted with a factory 4 speed manual transmission. The combo is cool, but the owner wants to add more zip to this machine so he elected to go with a GM Performance Parts LS3 crate engine and a Tremec 5-speed manual. Follow along as the V8 Speed & Resto Shop crew complete this transformation and add some additional upgrades from Detroit Speed, Wilwood brakes, and YearOne wheels.

700 HP 1969 Camaro 540 BBC Detroit Speed Suspension, Holley EFI, Forgeline Wheels and More At V8 Speed & Resto
We all dig Hot Wheels cars, and Sean Svendsen builds cusom versions that go to a whole new level of cool. He strips the cars, polishes the bodies, sprays them with Spectraflame transluceant paint for a vintage look, re-tires them with reproduction redlines, and the results are awesome. These are just some of the cars he's done, and you can see his other creations, including model kits and artwork, at his website www.svensworldofwheels.com. We'd love to build some full-size versions of these at the V8 Speed & Resto Shop. Which is your favorite?
