Chevrolet Engine

1971 Chevrolet Camaro RACECAR!

Now that I have your attention, take a look at this performance hotrod!

The students in the Automotive Service Technology program just finished repairing the engine, rewiring the vehicle and painting the engine to complete the performance of this machine.  They finished the work under the hood, and now they’re handing it over to the Collision Repair and Refinishing Technology Program at ASU-Newport. 

Hot Rod Before!

Both programs are excited to work on this classic beauty! As soon as the car’s body work is done, the CRRT program will move on to painting.  


Hot Rod  Bodywork

Imagine this...The base color will be red with gold pearl, then a line just coming down just over the top roll of the fender will be black with a red pearl in it. There will be a silver line with multicolor pearl in it that will divide the black and red. 

If you can use your imagination…you can see the future of this beauty!

Check the blog on a regular basis, we’ll share the progress photos and the final product!
