The Big Hoss
There’s just something about a minty-fresh Hugger Orange SS Camaro that makes us weak in the knees. This 38,000-mile beauty belongs to Joe Gallo of Mount Sinai, New York and it rocks quite the punch for a low mileage SS. Under the hood, Joe’s got plenty to brag about, including a ProCharger D-1SC supercharger head unit pushing upwards of eight pounds of boost through an 85mm Granatelli Mass Air Sensor, an 80mm BBK throttle body and an LS6 intake manifold. All of that air eventually ends up running through a set of SLP long-tube headers and a GMMG exhaust, which must sound wicked pumping 500-rwhp worth of the good stuff out in to the wild. Those wheels are 19-inch C6 Z06 pieces, with Nitto Drag Radials out back to keep Joe hooked up.
If you’ve ever wondered what a college degree can do for you, check out Kyle Humbert’s Cyber Grey ’03 Z06. Thanks to his Mechanical Engineering degree and awesome job as a Steam Turbine Field Engineer in Chicago, Kyle has been able to afford the good stuff, including a set of TPE T2 fender flares, 18x13 competition grey CCW C10 wheels, and a set of Pfadt coilovers to create the perfect stance. Under the hood, Kyle has added a Virginia Speed custom camshaft, 1.75-inch American Racing long-tube headers, and a FAST 102mm intake manifold. Belting out 466-rwhp and 416 lb-ft of torque, Kyle’s certainly got his hands full on the street, but that’s the whole point of owning something like this, isn’t it?

Deanna Culhane has an eye for style that clearly shows in her gorgeous ’95 Camaro Z28 project. Hailing to us all the way from Phoenix, Arizona, Deanna has taken a lot of time to set her ’95 up right, adding a set of 17-inch Torq Thrust II wheels, KSport lowering springs, a Harwood smooth cowl hood with custom paint, and a ZR28 spoiler complete with “Mrs. Chevrolet” script to round out the appearance package. Concerning the engine, Deanna has already added a Comp Cams 305 camshaft, along with a pair of Pacesetter mid-length headers, which flow through no mufflers or catalytic converters all the way back to a pair of Corsa exhaust tips. We can almost hear how loud this LT1 is from here, but we’re sure that’s exactly the way Deanna wanted it to be.
SOM LS3 WS6
Steve Ciregna’s ’02 Sunset Orange Metallic Trans Am may look like a show car, but he’s got enough track time and horsepower to prove otherwise. That’s right, Steve and his WS6 managed to grab two track championships in 2011 (Real Street and GM EFI Bracket at Englishtown Raceway), along with a 12.0 True Street win at both Super Chevy Maple Grove and the LSX Shootout. Unfortunately 2011 also marked the demise of Steve’s LS1 engine, which he promptly replaced with a Chevrolet Performance LSX376 crate motor, hopped up with a custom camshaft, Trick Flow cylinder heads, and a new FAST intake manifold. That’s enough motor to run 10.90’s, which Steve is happy with, considering he plans to run in the 11.50 bracket this year. Consider yourselves warned if you plan on lining up next to this WS6 anytime soon!
