2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 aims at the Boss 302

Track day beast!

Although I've owned more Ford Mustangs any other vehicle in my life, I'm not really a Ford person. I like all kinds of vehicles, I just happen to like reasonably priced American muscle. There were some things about the new Camaro but I didn't like which left me purchasing a Ford. I am very interested in the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28.

This isn't like the Z/28 of the late 80s and 90s, this new Z/28 is a naturally aspirated American muscle car designed specifically for track day enthusiasts. Chevrolet calls this the ultimate track-capable Camaro. The vehicle uses a high revving dry-sump LS7 with carbon-ceramic brakes and fluid coolers specifically made for track work.

The only potential downside to this car is that it has a stripped-down interior that may make it uncomfortable for some drivers. The car is also light with a curb weight by 300 pounds less than other Camaros in the line and has a special tracking suspension and aerodynamic treatments. The engine produces 500 hp and 470 pound-foot of torque. Pricing is unannounced, but if those carbon ceramic brakes are standard you can bet this will be the most expensive Camaro in the line.

The only 4 compact pickups you can buy for under $25,000

Sep 18 2014 2:45pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

If you’re head honcho at the construction site, a gold-grilled rapper sitting on 24s, or the king rancher in your province, you drive the big, expensive, one-ton leather-lined and chrome-happy pickup truck. If you’re not that person (we know you’re working up to that) but still need the utility of a small pickup, you still have a few options that will get the job done. Compact pickups are also good at easing you into driving a pickup, as ...

Blame it all on Hot Rod magazine. When Calgary truck enthusiast Keith McEwen was a teenager, he read every issue of the hallowed journal. “Earlier in life, I’d always read in Hot Rod about the ‘clean chassis’ approach to a build,” McEwen says. “I always wanted to do a clean chassis, and I put it into practice on this truck.” McEwen’s truck is a . He’s owned more than a dozen of the second-generation 1967 to 1972 C/K pickup ...
