SEMA 2013 Preview: CW Restoration’s 1957 Cameo

1957-Cameo3

CW Restoration Shop has a second vehicle it is bringing out to the 2013 SEMA Show – a 1957 Chevy Cameo pickup.   This pickup hosts a number of upgrades from the Hedman Performance Group on its small block powerplant including a set of Hedman Hedders, Hamburger’s Performance Valve Covers, and a Trans Dapt dipstick.  Emphasizing the smallest of details is what this truck is all about.  Looking at the finish of the wood in the bed, the trim and gauges on the dash, and colored accenting throughout shows the kind of attention to detail that this world class builder put into this project.

This beautiful Cameo will be on display in the Griffin Thermal Products booth (#24935) of the SEMA Show in the Central Hall, so make sure you stop by and check it out.  For more pictures of the build, check out the gallery below or head on over to CW Restoration Shop’s Facebook.

SEMA 2013 Preview: The Custom Shop’s SSL727 Camaro

SSL727camaro

John Wargo from The Custom Shop is bringing this wild 5th Gen Camaro out to the 2013 SEMA Show.  John and his crew left nothing untouched on this highly customized Camaro they call SSL727.  The body has been widened front and rear with custom fender flares that flow into redesigned front and rear bumpers.  The car has also undergone a conversion from 2+2 convertible to two-seat roadster with a custom 5,000-watt Sony audio/video system taking residence in the former rear seating area hiding underneath the motorized tonneau cover.  But don’t fool yourself into thinking that this Camaro is all show and no go.  The 727 in its moniker comes from the horsepower output of the Procharged LSX376 with Hedman Hedders hiding underneath its highly stylized hood.  Bringing this monster to a stop is the job of its 16-inch Brembo brakes that reside within the 22-inch Forgeline wheels while its Eibach suspension and Granatelli subframe connectors keep it firmly planted on the road.

SSL727 will be on display outside of the SEMA Show in the Car Crazy booth so make sure you stop by and check it out.  For more pictures of the build, check out the gallery below or head on over to builder John Wargo’s Facebook.

Cruisin’ for a Cure Charity Car Show 2012

Published October 5, 2012 by hedmanperformancegroup

Once a year the Southern California classic, muscle car, and hot rod communities descend upon the Orange County Fairgrounds to attend the Cruisin’ for a Cure Charity Car Show.  Benefitting the City of Hope Foundation and raising money to fund Prostate Cancer research, this car show is the largest charity classic/custom auto show in the world and had over 3,400 cars in attendance for 2012.  But this car show is more than just a fundraiser; it is a place to celebrate the automotive lifestyle.  To help embrace this lifestyle, the show has more than just the normal rows of parked cars.  Weaving throughout the show grounds is a half-mile long “Cruisin’” route that allows owners to fire up their rides and take part in one of the staples of American car culture – cruising.
