Any authentic Yenko Camaro is a special car, and this one is perhaps even more unique.   As the popularity of the Yenko name grew, other Chevrolet dealers were permitted to sell Yenko branded cars under license.    This Daytona Yellow '69 Yenko Camaro is one such animal, being sold new by Jack Douglass Chevrolet in Hinsdale, IL.   Jack Douglass was the authorized Yenko dealer for the Illinois and Wisconsin territory, in addition to being a high performance Chevy dealer of his own.    This Camaro features the L72 427 V8 and all the COPO 9561 and COPO 9737 package goodies, and is one of several unique Yenko cars in the Brothers Collection. 

The LS6 Chevelle option was new for 1970, and the cars went into production in late 1969. This week's Muscle Car Of The Week has a build date of December 9, 1969, making it one of the earliest. For a while, this was believed to be the earliest US-made LSX, as there is a Canadian manufacturer car with a build date of November 1969. The world will never know what the first one is unless the VIN numbers of all of the cars are somehow obtained.  No matter what, this dark green metallic, 450 hp 1970 LS6 Chevelle is one of the nicest in existence.  There are several LS6 Chevelle's in the Brothers collection, this one is one of the most unique.

This week, we're taking a look at a Muscle Car that proves one didn't need the biggest engine to be a bad machine!    The 1969 Camaro Z/28 boasted a high-revving 302 cube V8 - a size dictated by the SCCA for Trans Am racing legality.    But don't let the relatively small displacement fool you - the Z/28 302 was conservatively rated at 290 HP - although many claim it made closer to 350 HP at a higher RPM than the original rating.    This Dusk Blue example retains all the cool parts that made up the Z/28 package.   From the Brothers Collection.

The Corvette changed for 1968, evolving into the 3rd generation for the American sports car. The sleek new styling looks like full speed standing still, a trait shared by most Corvettes. This week's Muscle Car Of The Week could be considered the top-gun of all '68 Corvettes, as it carries a 500+ HP 427 under the hood, an optioned named the "L88". L88 cars featured not only a distinctive hood, but a whole list of performance enhancements... the F41 performance suspension, J56 heavy duty brakes, a Muncie M22 4-speed transmission, and of course, the 12.5:1 compression 427 V8. The LeMans Blue roadster in the Brothers Collection is one of only 80 built in '68, and it might look like a nice Sunday cruiser, but it was a thinly disguised race car sold to the public!
