Please, be introduced – this is one helluva awesome 1973 Camaro pro-tourer owned by Brian Hobaugh.
The first thing you gonna notice is probably its nice custom body painted in amazing orange. Car West Elite customized the body with fiberglass front end, hood, fenders, doors and deck lid. Mast Motorsports LS3 416-cubic 605-horse monster hides under the hood.

The rolling chassis was built by Maier Racing. It involves (all by Maier Racing) upper and lower control arms, spindles, link rear suspension. JRI Shocks – coil overs with 4 way adjustable fronts with remote reservoir, 2 way adjustable rear Hyperco coil springs Maier Racing anti-sway bars. Custom dual to single exhaust with Black Widow muffler sings its funeral Mars. The interior – Kirkey road race seats with O2 Creations custom seat covers, Speed Hut gauges and GPS speedometer.
