The Camaro was all-new for 1970, and the Z28 is loaded with the also-new LT1 350.   The LT1 350 had a higher horsepower rating than the big block, and the Z28's performance tuned suspension was one of the best you could get in '70.    This Forrest Green Z is a low-mile car from the Brothers Collection.

http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - This 1968 Chevrolet Corvette is one of the 80 built in '68 featuring the legendary RPO L88 427 V8.   This is as close to a full-race Corvette as you could buy in '68, with heavy-duty suspension & brakes, and a lack of creature comforts like a radio or heater.   From the Brothers Collection.  

Are modern Muscle Cars to be considered as Muscle Cars?   We explore a 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and compare it to the first 1969 ZL1 and note the differences and similarities.   Of course, this ZL1 is special on it's own, as it is the earliest Captured Test Fleet car produced.   From the Brothers Collection.

This week, we're playing with what appears to be a fairly common-looking 1969 Camaro.   But once you look closer, some details present themselves that indicate that this is definitely NOT a typical used car lot '69.    In fact, it's a true double-COPO 427 car sold through Berger Chevrolet, and it is still in original paint.   Truly a gem in the Brothers Collection.

 
This week, we take a closer look at one of the high points of Corvette style and power with this 1969 Chevrolet Corvette roadster featuring the 435 HP L71 427 V8 under the hood.   This beautiful Daytona Yellow 4-speed Corvette is nearly all original, and is showing just over 30,000 miles on the odometer.    Even the original analog clock still works!    It's an amazing car from the Brothers Collection.

What starts off looking like a plain-Jane 1973 Camaro is really a pretty rare Z/28 with the optional stripe and wing delete option.   Why would you delete the iconic stripes and wing from a Z/28?   We're not sure, but this nearly all-original 48,000 mile survivor was ordered this way.  Other features include the original blue vinyl top and "natural" colored vinyl interior.   The 350 / 4-speed manual combo makes this car fun to drive, even if power levels were slipping by 1973.   It's an unusual car, and one of the more sedate Muscle Cars in the Brothers Collection!

Some Muscle Cars are cool because they came with the goods from the factory, while others are standouts because of modifications they received after leaving the line.  In this case, this 1970 Camaro started life as a 350 powered SS car, but a trip to the Dick Harrell Performance Center was all it needed to be a monster Muscle Car built by one of the legends in Chevrolet racing.  Add to the pedigree the fact that the car is an unrestored survivor with approximately 6000 miles on the clock, and you've got a winner in every way possible.  It's one of only a handful built, and it still has the  power to burn the hides at will.  There are many souped-up cars in the Brothers Collection, but this Harrell car is one of the coolest!
