Nostalgia on Steroids

At different times, I have owned two 1969 Camaro Z-28's (not at the same time). One was all original, purchased in 1971, and the other one, purchased in 1984, had a hot 350 with a Crane cam. These new Camaros leave the old technology in the dust, and look good doing it, too. They're more powerful, more fuel-efficient, and their handling is phenomenal. Even the base 3.6 liter V6 engine is a 300 h.p. screamer. For hopeless adrenaline junkies, there is the 7 liter-powered beast, and the possibility of adding a supercharger. Wicked, or as George Thorogood says, "bad to the bone".

Imagine one with an LS7 or LSX engine and a TVS-2300 supercharger

This is a clip from the Transformers movie showing the yellow RS Camaro that the machine morphs into.

Martial arts training is fascinating. I always had trouble remembering the moves. Here's a video on some interesting variants...

Here's an inspiring video on what is possible with enough training...
