Story of David Roy’s 1000hp 1973 Chevy Camaro

How about a 1000+ horsepower small block 1973 Chevy Camaro street car with 8-seconds ET that launches with the front wheels in the air? I know you have to see this beast, so hit the play button to watch the video story we put together for David Roy’s RS/Z28 Camaro and read more on the build below!

Purchased this 1973 Chevy Camaro for $1,000 back in 1985 with no interior and drivetrain when a drunk driver took out his current ride, David had to install wheels and rearend just to get it home. Later on at a Family Get Together his brothers helped him to put in a motor and a tranny. Dave has changed many set ups on his RS/Z28 Camaro during the years: Dual Quad’s, Single Dominator / Nitrous Fogger, EFI Hilborn 8 Stack. Couple of 355 cube small blocks, and a 461 GM Rocket Block w/Brodix 215’s, but always with the intention to race it and drive it on the street.
