Have you heard of the Rampage Camaro? Of course you have, it was arguably the biggest hit of SEMA 2014; a second generation Camaro with a full slathering of motorsport technology and fabrication bestowed onto it by the wizards at Roadster Shop. And what’s better than seeing pictures of a glossy finished car shining under stadium lights? Pictures of that same car in bare metal with little to no panels bolted to it! I actually found this build through another featured build. I was browsing for updates on the red MKII Supra (whose owner works at Roadster Shop), when I saw him post a link to this build within his own thread. See, it always pays to look through the archives, you never know what you’ll find! I honestly had a lot of trouble figuring out which pictures to use for this post, as I found myself wanting to save pretty much every damn image from the thread, so I hope you enjoy the visual banquet that is this build as much as I did. It might not be achievable for most of us, but it’s nice to dream and peek into the upper echelon of car building once in a while. Who knows, you might find an idea or two for your own build?

What can I say about builds like these? High quality mods, high quality images, and high quality documentation, everything we all love in a thread, steered by my favourite kind of builder; one with OCD! Another thing I love about this particular build is watching the owner’s skills progress and improve as time goes on. The choice of car is something we haven’t seen on the site before, we’ve had Supra’s, but never a MKII, so it’s refreshing to read about a platform that can sometimes go unnoticed within the nostalgic Japanese community. There’s so much quality here, from fiberglassing, wiring, welding and CAD design – and over 50 pages of it – so get comfortable!

One company I’ve loved following online for the past few years is Roadster Shop. In fact, I’ve featured a couple of their builds before, which you can view by clicking here. While cruising around the Pro Touring forums, which I like to do regularly, I noticed they were undertaking yet another new build. This time, they’re teaming up with Craftsman Tools and putting together a really nice Chevy C-10 pickup, all documented via some slick videos that detail each stage of the process. Apart from the videos there are also high quality images in the thread, which you’ll find at the bottom of the post.

The Roadster Shop are back again with another incredible build which just oozes copious amounts of talent. The last time I featured one of their metal sculptures it was an award winning ’62 Corvette. This time they’re keeping it in the GM family and are back with a ’67 Nova. The fabrication work in this build is completely mind blowing, it doesn’t even matter that the car isn’t finished yet, your jaw is still bound to drop once you see the new custom body-lines, all-metal interior work, subtle roof chop, the customised bonnet (hood) with clearances for airboxes built into the engine bay, and of course their Fast Track chassis. This build is just rife with details, make sure you check out the full thread.
This isn’t the first time a Nova has been featured, click here to see the others.
