Jay Leno checks out State Farm’s “cross-dressing” Camaro

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Filed under: , , , , , , ,

The latest video installment of Jay Leno’s Garage takes a look at a convertible 1968 Chevy Camaro. Actually, two 1968 Camaros on the same, but different, chassis. It’s an RS/SS hybrid of sorts that’s both fully-restored stock and modified at the same time.

It may sound like something cooked up just in time for Halloween, but, in fact, it was built by State Farm Insurance to educate agents about the myriad ways classic cars can be restored.

The driver’s side of the Camaro is stock 1968 Camaro RS except for the clearcoat paint. The rear wheel is the stock 1968 hubcap and whitewall, while the front is the optional redline tire and rally wheel. Passengers, however, get to travel in what the car would look like as a heavily modded SS with bright red paint, shaved door handles, a spoiler, oversized custom wheels and side pipes.

Looking at each side individually, the two wouldn’t seem odd at all. From the front or back, though, you’d swear someone just couldn’t make up their mind. The whole car is split down the middle, beginning with an RS grille on the right with hidden headlights and exposed lights and half an SS badge on the left. The hood is split between the standard flat RS hood and a louvered Super Sport lid. The divide continues over the cloth top and onto the rear deck lid where half an SS spoiler sits. The engine is split with aluminum heads on one side, cast iron on the other. The SS side also has tubular control arms, nitrous, big brakes and a carbon-fiber wheelhouse.

A single, split-personality Camaro is easier for State Farm to transport than two Camaros, says State Farm’s Earl Hyser (who built the original side). He says the car would probably run, but they’ve never tried because keeping it empty of fluids allows them to take it into any building.

The “cross-dressing Camaro” as Leno calls it, will be on display at this year’s SEMA. Check out the video below.

Watch the entire 30-minute Urban Outlaw documentary

Saturday, October 27th, 2012

Filed under: , , , , ,

Earlier this year we had the pleasure of sharing with you a short film called Urban Outlaw, which detailed some of the life and cars of iconoclastic Porschephile Magnus Walker. The original three-minute film, by director Tamir Moscovici, was impeccably shot and well worth your time if you are even the slightest bit interested in old 911s.

The small project gained enough momentum to turn in to a larger one, it seems, and Moscovici’s short video has now given life to a 30-minute film. The fuller version of Urban Outlaw debuted at the Raindance Film Festival in London, and is now available to watch from the comfort of your own computer. Sit back, grab your Porsche hat, dim the lights and enjoy the complete story by scrolling down below.

75-year-old woman to drive around world in 91-year-old car

Saturday, October 27th, 2012

Filed under: , ,

Heidi Hetzer is a serious driver, she always has been.

An accomplished businesswoman and local German celebrity, Hetzer has no intention of taking the easy road. She never has.

The 75-year-old racer plans on circumnavigating the globe along the same route taken by the first person ever to drive a car around the world: Clärenore Stinnes.

Stinnes did it in 1928 and Hertzer plans to one up the original driver by using her 91-year-old Hispano-Suiza roadster.

Of course, Hetzer will have no problems if the Hispano-Suiza breaks down. One of her first jobs in the ’50s was as a mechanic at her father’s Opel dealership. When her father died in the 1960s, Hetzer took over the dealership and then built it into one of the largest dealerships in Berlin.

In between fixing and selling cars, Hetzer also raced them. She has collected more than 150 prizes from numerous races spanning more than 50 years, the most recent in 2007 in a classic car rally, according to Wikipedia.

The legendary Berlin native will begin her newest journey in 2014.

Scroll down to see the video.
