Through the years, the second-generation Chevrolet Camaro has often been overlooked as a performer mainly due to the popularity of the first-gen Camaro. But when your business is building showstopping, track-stomping machines like the folks at Roadster Shop, the desire to be different pushes you to conjure up an insane, one-of-a-kind Camaro—and then take the brash step of naming it Rampage. A fitting name for a car designed to cause destruction among the competition. "I always thought that the second-generation Camaro had a little bit more of an exotic look to it, more so than an American muscle look. We happened to have a great customer who shared the vision, so we twisted his arm a little," recalled Roadster Shop co-owner Jeremy Gerber.

Reader’s Ride: 1970 El Camino SS454

  Reader’s Ride: 1970 El Camino SS454 With just over 26,000 miles, my 1970 SS454 LS5 El Camino is a one-family survivor car. It was ordered on December 6, 1969, and delivered to my dad in January 1970. I was born on December 5, 1970, and took my first ride home in the car. My brothers and I grew up in the car in the summers of the 1970s and early 1980s before it went into a barn for more than 20 years. © Hot Rod Network Staff It was pulled out of storage in the early 2000s when my dad asked me to keep it in my garage to give him room for another restoration project. In 2004 he finally gave in and signed her over to me.

Their in-house designer, Chris Gray, put the rendering together and the company presented it to car owner Alex Covington, who then made the decision to get the project underway. The Camaro, which was plucked from the desert, was super clean and straight, although covered in patina from sitting. It wore all original sheetmetal right down to the floors—a real rarity in this day and age—but was ripe for blasting to clean up the surfaces.

Once the car was back in the shop and ready to be worked out, they braced the shell and cut the floors completely out to make room for the Roadster Shop chassis underneath. Roadster Shop's Fast Track full chassis is loaded up with all of the custom options they offer to underpin this beast. In addition, the chassis has been configured to fit the widebody perfectly.

By using fully boxed, hand-fabricated framerails; a new floor; custom center crossmember; and other tricks they've developed a suspension system that is immensely stiff to reduce unibody twist yet still uses the factory body mounts and bumper brackets. Each chassis is built to house the customer's specific engine and transmission selection. In this configuration, the chassis makes use of a rollcage designed to be tight to the body. This was achieved by lifting the body off the chassis during the construction process to ensure it was as snug as possible.

Although the second-gen Camaro chassis' capabilities were improved over the first-gen's in factory form, the Roadster Shop team felt they could improve it even more by configuring each piece of the suspension to their liking using a mixture of custom parts, existing products, and proven C6 Corvette spindles and hubs to modernize the chassis' handling prowess.

All GM Brands Turn Out for the 2017 Carlisle Chevrolet Nationals

  All GM Brands Turn Out for the 2017 Carlisle Chevrolet Nationals This year, the folks at Carlisle Events decided to narrow the focus—or, at least, narrow the brand name—of their June GM-oriented show. So last year's GM Nationals became this year's Chevrolet Nationals, just in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of the most popular Chevys of all time, the Camaro. © John Machaqueiro No Camaro fan would leave this show wanting for more. The first Camaro was there. So was the five-millionth. There were pace cars, big-block cars, Z cars from every era.

No, this 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS454 is the real deal, complete with the matching-numbers LS5 on the side. All the correct SS hardware is in place, including the fully functional cowl-induction hood with pins, blacked- out SS grille, and twin oval tailpipes out back.

"The neat thing about it is that it's really just an overgrown version of all of our factory production suspension. It may look like a race car, it acts like a race car, it works like a race car, but it still has the same bushings, same control arms, and the same components we use on our production chassis ... just set up a bit wider. But this is a hard-core track day car," says Gerber.

The track width of this chassis has been increased by approximately 2.5 inches on each side; making Rampage approximately 80.5 inches wide at the outside edges of the Falken Azenis RT615K 315/30/18 tires used during the 2016 Falken Tire Super Chevy Muscle Car Challenge. The 5 inches of additional track width engineered into this car is for one reason and one reason only—to maximize grip no matter where the car is raced. Custom control arms were built to tie everything together in the front suspension.

Up front, Penske shocks custom-built for Roadster Shop, utilize Hyperco 600 lb-in springs and work in conjunction with a Speedway 1.25-inch front sway bar, Delrin bushings, and the aforementioned custom control arms. In addition, Roadster Shop custom-designed and machined a trunnion bearing mount rocker arm to work with the front shocks. Alignment settings are simpler than you might expect: 1.75-degrees of negative camber, 6.5-degrees of caster, and 1/16-inch of toe out keep the massive front tires planted.

With all this grip on tap, surely there must be a monster supercharged or turbocharged powerplant onboard, right? Not so in this instance. The horses are generated by a pump gas, naturally aspirated, 750hp 427ci LS7 built by Thompson Racing Engines and Lingenfelter, which was set back 5 inches to improve weight bias. A cross-ram Hurricane intake from Australian firm Harrop makes use of individual throttle bodies and a pair of plenums to help build usable power throughout the rpm range. Engine management is handled by a MoTeC M880. And when was the last time you saw a pair of 2-inch stainless-steel 180-degree headers wrapped around an LS engine's oil pan? Right here on Rampage. To route the horsepower from engine to tires, the Jerico transmission uses a 7.250-inch-diameter multi-disc Tilton clutch inside the Tilton bellhousing. The race-inspired Camaro is also fitted with a quartet of air-jacks. Yep, that's right, just like the big boys.

The Roadster Shop fab team made the decision to build molds in-house for the carbon-fiber wheel flares, and a carbon-fiber Rally Sport front clip from Anvil was set into place. By creating the molds in-house, if there are any on-track issues where damage occurs, they can pop another flare out much more quickly than if one had to be re-created out of metal.

Gerber shared a fun story with us. Apparently, on its first testdrive, Rampage was equipped with Hoosier slicks, the straight-cut gearbox, and the nearly open exhaust. "With the small, lightweight clutch and fresh, cold slicks it is virtually impossible to start the car without spinning the tires," says Gerber. "At the first stoplight there happens to be a cop sitting directly across from me. I hung a right like a NASCAR leaving the pits and ended up at the next light lined up next to a guy in a red C7 Corvette convertible. I think that guy's pride and mind will forever be blown."

Looking at these results, it's quite obvious that Roadster Shop's 1970 Camaro is, as Jeremy Gerber puts it, a very hard-core track day car. Driven by professional hot shoe Mike Skeen, who also pulled double-duty with the company's other entry at the Challenge, Rampage simply demolished the benchmark fifth-gen Camaro's numbers in all aspects. With Skeen pushing the car's capabilities to the limit, he recorded a best pass over 7 mph quicker than the 2010 in the slalom, 0.60 quicker in the 100-yard dash, and a mind-bending 15-plus seconds quicker around the road course. Its biggest challenge was not melting the tires in the 100-yard dash! The engineering resources, fabrication talent, and systematic build process put into the Rampage Camaro was on full display at this event. It was, simply put, the best-performing machine on the property. And in case you were wondering, it was also fully licensed, registered, and insured for street duty.

Reader’s Ride: After Looking 34 Years He Finds 1974 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 of His Dreams .
I have been into muscle cars since I was 14 and have owned (and still own) many: a 1969 Chevelle, 1972 El Camino, 1970 Nova, 1975 and 1977 Trans Ams, 1970 Buick Wildcat, 1971 Camaro, pro touring 1970 Chevelle, and this one, a 1974 Z28. I had been looking for one since I was 14 and saw one in a neighbor's garage with the big Z28 callout on the hood. I'm 49 now, and last year I finally found one. It came from a collection in Maine. This was the last car he had left, and he still had not decided for sure to sell it, but we worked out a deal.This is a true survivor with 16,700 miles, original paint, interior, drivetrain, and tires.
