This car reeled us in and made love to our eyes
Awash in the finest cars money can buy, there are certain vehicles that called out to us as we paced the carpet at the 2008 SEMA show. This particular vehicle, a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro, was our Siren. She beckoned us with a subtle song every time we walked by, until finally we stopped and said, "If the keys were in that ride we'd be gone so fast you'd have to call the Mexican border police to catch us." Turns out, we weren't alone in our sentiment. We have since learned this car took home the 2008 Mothers Shine Award, one of the most prestigious awards given out at SEMA each year. Built by Ringbrothers of Wisconsin, RAZOR, as the car is known, started out as a California-raised 1969 Chevy Camaro. Dropped off at their shop with a Ram Jet ZL1 crate engine (193 of 200 produced), the project was only supposed to be quick restoration job, but turned into something so much greater.
