1968 Chevrolet Camaro

1968 Chevy Sunoco Camaro Tribute

Rides from the want ads

Excellent pictures and information in this want ad.

History: Mark Donohue’s and Paul Van Valkenburg’s timeless book, The Unfair Advantage, revealed how Roger Penske and Donohue painstakingly modified their Camaro team cars to be wicked competitors. when it comes to famous race car Camaros, few are as iconic as the Sunoco (referring to the Sun Oil Company) Camaro. Back in the ’60s Sunoco/Penske was, for all purposes, the Chevrolet factory team in Trans-Am racing. Backed by Rodger Penske with Mark Donohue behind the wheel, they crushed the competition in 1968 (in a ’68) winning 10 of the 13 races that year. LeRoy Gane was the car’s crew chief for drivers Donohue and Craig Fisher. In 1969 they switched to the new body style and again won the championship by placing first six out of 12 times. The reason they didn’t dominate as decisively in 1969 compared to 1968 was that Ford caught up a bit in the performance department with the introduction of their ’69 Boss 302 Mustang.

The Sunoco Camaro is powered by a big block detuned race 350cid V8 engine, with a 4-speed transmission. The engine was fully built with a street tune, however, very surprised the car drives exceptionally well and is not too loud for street driving which is what this Sunoco Camaro was built for. It has power steering, power brakes, fully detailed engine bay with custom pieces made especially just for this car.

The Body is in great condition and has been sandblasted, coated, and painted during restoration. Paint is of very high quality and has a mirror finish to it. Body is rock solid, and all detailed undercarriage. The Body is straight as an arrow. During the restoration process, it received all new mounts, new door seals, all new chrome pieces, new weather stripping, all new lights, bumpers, grill, all new bolts and nuts all around, all new windows etc.. Incredible amount of attention, and detail has been placed in this car. Underneath all floors are in excellent shape. I encourage you to see all the detailed pictures I posted.

The interior was all done brand new during the restoration, Seats, door panels, dash, and carpets etc. Custom Sunoco steering wheel with center pad, roll bar, full TMI interior, racing rpm gauges with pod, fire extinguisher and more. Also, have an extra seat.

This car will turn heads at every corner!

Chevy To Unveil Special Edition Corvette On January 25

It’ll debut at the Rolex 24 at Daytona race. The spot on the itinerary only shows “2019 Corvette Special Edition Announcement at the Chevrolet Experience,” and that doesn’t even hint at what makes the new model distinctive. Unveiling the vehicle at a major race could hint at some sort of motorsport-inspired connection, though.

An itinerary for the Rolex 24 at Daytona race reveals that a special edition Chevy Corvette debuts. It doesn’t provide any other details, though.

UCLA study says motorcycling reduces stress, increases alertness

funded by Harley-Davidson

On average, riding a motorcycle for 20 minutes increased participants heart rates by 11 percent and adrenaline levels by 27 percent, similar to light exercise.
Changes in the riders’ brain activity suggested an increase in alertness similar to drinking a cup of coffee.
Sensory focus was enhanced while riding, versus driving a car, meaning that riders were more alert to what was going on around them.
On the bike, many riders say they tune out anything that’s not relevant to the road. The study, which used electroencephalogram equipment to measure brain activity, seemed to validate that point.

The study, from the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at the University of California, Los Angeles, says results are similar to light exercise.

This female team says it’s no gimmick

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Every racing series in the world is full of wealthy enthusiasts with ideas that sound too good to be true. Expensive promises to fund life-changing opportunities are usually broken before cars even make it to the track. Jackie Heinricher has defied those odds and turned an outlandish idea into one of the most highly anticipated debuts in racing. She has put together an all-female team of drivers that will debut later this month at the Rolex 24 at Daytona, one of the most prestigious endurance races in the world. Her vision became a reality because she found a commercial sponsor with Caterpillar, landed a partner in Meyer Shank Racing and signed up top racers — all of whom wanted to be part of the unique project.
