NOVEMBER 2019 THE SHOP 71 1968 CHEVROLET CAMARO AWD John Wargo of The Custom Shop, Flanagan, Illinois, presents a 1968 Chevrolet Camaro widebody with all-wheel drive. The roadster includes an LX 376 engine with a ProCharger F-1 kit and custom Eastwood orange mix paint with bronze accents. Upgrades include Forgeline wheels, Toyo Tires, plenty of body mods and an air ride suspension. See it in the SONY booth #12039 at the 2019 SEMA Show. Participants include American Autowire, Auto Custom Carpet, Cerakote (powder-coating), Eddie Motorsports, Enduratex, Fairchild (weather stripping), Grote LED, Holley Performance Products, Hedman Hedders, Leather Hide Store, ODYSSEY Battery, Presta Products, POR-15, Prismatic Powders, Pypes Performance Exhaust, Tanks Inc., Thermo-Tec and Trulers. K50 CHEVROLET BLAZER An award-winning builder of custom 1967-'72 Chevrolet/GMC trucks, Rtech Fabrications will debut the Bulldog K50 Blazer in the Toyo Tires Treadpass display between the Central and South Halls at the 2019 SEMA Show. The Bulldog Blazer is also competing in the SEMA Battle of the Builders. Rtech is known for its four-door crew cab conversions, and the build is a slight departure for the company, as it retains the factory doors but adds the signature Rtech 2-1/2-ton medium-duty platform. It also features the company's double- DIN dashboard, 60-gallon aluminum fuel tank, roll cage and bumpers. Participants include American Force Wheels, AMP Research (PowerSteps), BD Diesel Performance (turbocharger, transmission cooler), FAAS (lift pump), Flowmaster (exhaust), F-O-A (suspension), GT2 (braided plumbing) and Dakota Digital (gauges). 1949 DODGE POWER WAGON Vintage truck specialist Legacy Classic Trucks is known for creating bespoke Dodge Power Wagons. Each is built to order with a choice of body styles: original two-door pickup or carryall panel van, plus custom extended-cab and four-door conversions. Power plant options include the LS3, LSA, 6.7-liter Mopar or Cummins 3.9-liter. See a 1949 example in the Stertil-Koni USA booth #10325 at the 2019 SEMA Show. Participants include: Stertil-Koni USA (EARTHLIFT mobile column lifts), Advance Adapters (Atlas transfer case), Dynatrac (axles), PSC (steering hydraulics), Borgeson (steering linkage), Flaming River (steering column), ARB USA (air lockers), Warn Industries (winch, hubs), Tom Woods (driveshafts), Wilwood (brakes), Lokar (e-brake linkage), Ron Davis (radiator), Vintage Air (A/C), Painless Performance (wiring), Alpine (entertainment system), Bilstein (shocks), TrailReady (wheels) and Toyo Tires. 1949 HUDSON DERELICT This barn-find 1949 Hudson was revived and reimagined by Jonathan Ward and ICON as a high-tech Nashville daily driver. Its time-earned body patina hides modern mechanicals and a bit of rockabilly attitude, made even more boisterous by a 638- hp LS9, four-wheel independent suspension and custom hand- dyed alligator upholstery. See it in the OPTIMA Batteries booth #20323 at the 2019 SEMA Show. Participants include: Art Morrison Enterprises (chassis), Speartech (wiring harness), Armstrong Race Engineering (ARE) (dry sump system), Setrab USA (heat exchangers), Griffin (radiator), Concept One (compressor), Vintage Air (A/C), Huntington Beach Transmissions (4L85E transmission), Brembo (brakes), Wilwood (master cylinder), Hydratech (hydro- boost), Moore & Giles (interior components), Relicate Leather (interior components), Focal (audio) and BFGoodrich (tires). presented by: booth#36227
