Intimidating 69 camaro

It’s refreshing to see a ’70s truck like Sean’s C10 rolling out of South City Rod & Custom – a shop well known for traditional hot rods and customs.

Sean is quick to thank his wife for supporting his passion, Travis for selling him the truck, and the crews at South City Rod & Custom, Compani Color, and DJ Designs for the excellent work turning his dream into a reality.

Ed Capen of Goodguys, explained the significance of the special exhibit.

“Nothing quite like this has been done before,” Capen said.

Beyond those fortunate 10, dozens more went home with picks and awards from the Goodguys staff, including two finalists for 2019 Top 12 awards – Bill Brunker’s ’67 GTO for the MSD Muscle Car of the Year, and Ed Vannoy’s ’67 Chevy C10 for LMC Truck of the Year Late.

There was also a PPG Dream Car Pick – Butch Poe’s ’63 Nova – plus a Fuel Curve Pick given to Glenn Sinon’s ’72 Maverick.

“We’re putting out the call this early to allow for those who would like to be part of the exhibit time to plan.

If you have built/restored a significant Camaro or know of one, we would like to speak with you,” Capen emphasized. The 5,000-mile round trip haul from California to Columbus and back this past summer paid off for Sean Provost and the South City Rod & Custom crew when Provost’s “Mafia” ’70 C10 nabbed a 2018 LMC Truck of the Year Late finalist spot.Vehicle owners and collectors interested in participating in the 50th Anniversary Camaro exhibit will be required to provide their daytime contact information along with a picture of the vehicle. We first saw the truck in April at the Goodguys Del Mar Nationals and were stunned at the build quality, fit, finish, and presence of this cool custom hauler.The truck retains mostly stock lines, but the South City crew worked every panel to perfection and incorporated a lot of subtle tricks before Compani Color finished it with True Blue House of Kolor paint.While the ZL1 was king of the ’69 Camaros and a killer street/strip car, the Z/28 model offered buyers a sportier ride with its road course inspiration.The Golden Anniversary ’69 Camaro Exhibit will feature a wide range of ’69 models.“We have reached out to General Motors to get this event on their radar to offer whatever manufacturer support they can offer for this this historic gathering.” Each vehicle will be carefully selected based on significance, and its impact on the hot rod industry.
