1962 Chevrolet Impala – Psychedelic ’62

Gilbert Ramirez’s 1962 Chevrolet Impala “Psychedelic ’62”

As a toddler, Gilbert Ramirez attended car shows with his father, but nothing actually stuck with him until he became a teenager. By that time his fascination with lowriding began to grow, and through the influence of his father and the friends he had made on the scene, Gilbert didn’t just want to build any car, he wanted to build a lowrider that could hang with the big dogs. Then again, that should come as no surprise since his father is Big Fern, the man who has long been a fixture in the lowriding scene, a Lifestyle Car Club member, and owner of the famous “Moonflower.” Continue reading →

Wild 1961 Chevy Bubbletop Impala Full Custom

“How do you like me now?” might be the question Clarence Goodwin’s 1961 Chevy Impala would ask if it could talk. You see Clarence didn’t make a whole lot of changes when he first got the ’61 Impala, and for that matter he really wasn’t looking for a 1961 Impala when he bought the car. One might say it was Clarence’s dad who was to blame for him picking this particular year and model of car. Continue reading →

Tailored Koolness: CON2R Featured on Rod Authority!

A car’s steering wheel is the user interface between man and machine. The nexus point where human blends with steel, glass and rubber. It should be a fantastic experience with a “tiller” that beckons the driver to his mechanical steed with assuring tactile and visual rewards. Continue reading →

Done Right – Butch Poe’s Tight and Tidy 1963 Chevy II

This 1963 Chevy C10 Proves Second Time’s a Charm

Becoming involved in the build of your very first classic truck can be the ultimate learning experience. From the time spent researching your favorite make and model to when you find it and swap cash for a title, it’s just the beginning. For Todd Zientek of Shorewood, Illinois, the first chance he had to channel his inner hot rodder started with a 1963 Chevy C10 pickup once he graduated from college. With all the right intentions of building a neat restomod-styled truck, he delivered the prize to his parents’ garage and started the teardown with neighborhood friend Evan Vandarakis who brought plenty of mechanical knowledge to the mix.

This 1961 Chevrolet Impala Custom Has Been Collecting Awards But Was Built To Drive

Most of the street rodders we meet were born with a love for cars. For many, fulfilling that interest can require some waiting. Reaching legal driving age comes relatively soon, but can be an excruciatingly long wait for young enthusiasts. And even though teenage gearheads are thrilled to start driving, owning their first car and owning the car of their dreams are almost always two entirely different automotive milestones. That latter milestone typically requires more time, more money, and more waiting. Continue reading →

New “SuperStock” Clock For C1 Corvettes

As we always expect from the Old Skool Zone at CON2R, their direct fit clock for 1958-62 Corvettes looks like it could have been OEM.  The updates are hard to see – or invisible – but include needing only a finger touch to set the time on the quartz movement and LED halo lighting that reveals all the original detail has been correctly reproduced.  In keeping with their theme of building products “Your Way” custom colors and graphics can be added using the CON2R Instrument Build program online.
