We spotted this super-cool family transporter and had to snap a photo. If your kids aren't hooked on cars already, they would be after this event.
Robert and Rashell Tye of Corona, California, were by far the most excited to see us with our camera and clipboard in hand. Robert built the entire car himself, minus the body and paintwork, which he handed over to Airhead Kustoms in Corona. This '68 Camaro has a 420-inch small-block Chevy, TH350 transmission with a 2,800 rpm stall, 9-inch Ford rear end suspended by heavy-duty original parts and polyurethane bushings. Robert's wife, Rashell, especially likes the interior whose design came to her in a dream. They both drive the car quite a bit, but not as much as the retired gentleman they bought it from, who used it as a daily driver.
PHR Editor, Johnny Hunkins, didn't get to walk the entire show this time because he had his own thing going at the Air Ride booth. As a public demonstration, the guys at Air Ride installed their no-fab TigerCage in his '76 Camaro. Stay tuned, and we'll show you the step-by-step cage install story, and some video of the entire process.
