Chevrolet pulled out all the stops at the 2012 SEMA show, with Camaro concepts of all descriptions, the last 2012 COPO, and a bunch of performance packages and parts on display.

At a show where the vehicles on display range from “awe-inspiring” to “eyesore” and every spot in between, we’d have to say that this classic Corvette reborn with state-of-the-art running gear is subtle enough to keep Y-body purists happy while still being unique and modern.
The whole Power Automedia team is on the ground in beautiful, elegant Las Vegas, Nevada for the 2012 SEMA show, and we will be bringing you highlights and videos all week long as we prowl the miles of aisles here at the convention center. Today was move-in day, and we got a chance to sneak onto the show floor…

Dynocom has steadily expanded into the fastest growing chassis dyno company in the world today. Recently, Dynocom rolled out (no pun intended) their All-Wheel-Drive 5000 Series dynos, which they bill as the world’s most affordable and advanced mechanically linked AWD dyno, and it can be set up almost anywhere…

GM’s commitment to supplying turn-key engines to muscle car and hot rod builders just got a little deeper, with new part numbers that combine everything needed from intake to driveshaft yoke, and a program that lets buyers help build their own crate engines at the Wixom build facility, just like Z06 and ZR1 buyers
While this bespoke styling and engineering exercise didn’t show the future direction of production Corvettes in every detail, it still is an invaluable look at how Chevrolet’s talented designers were playing a game of “what if” and experimenting with concepts at full scale in the real world.

It’s been a long time since the COPO name has been attached to a Camaro, but the new turnkey drag car from Chevy could become a reality if interest is high enough. The 1LE and ZL1 Carbon Camaros also show potential directions for the 5th Gen, while Ron Fellows gets his own Z06 tribute Corvette…

Here at the 2010 SEMA show, we got to go hands-on with the Stealth setup, which is a drop-in replacement for the stock pump, retaining the factory jet siphon system and fuel level sender but capable of supplying enough flow to support 1000 blown horsepower (with the A1000 pump) or even 1400 with the Eliminator.
What if you could design a turbocharger from a clean sheet of paper – no legacy hardware, no limits on what you could do, other than those imposed by physics? What if you had years of data on aerodynamics, materials science, and real-world testing from one of the largest suppliers of OEM and industrial turbos?

It was only natural that the School of Automotive Machinists (SAM) and the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow became partners in the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Engine Challenge.

Factory steering wheels were pretty much the only option for airbag equipped cars for the do it yourself guys. That has all changed with Grant Products new Revolution line of steering wheels. There is an option for the airbag dilemma.
