Supercharging Dad’s ’68 Camaro for Father’s Day!

The car hobby becomes even more enjoyable when shared with others, especially when it involves a special bond between a father and his children. Just picture the excitement of stepping into a Chevrolet Camaro, unleashing the power of its engine, and sharing that exhilarating experience with your dad.

In this particular case, Dad already owned a remarkable 1968 Chevrolet Camaro. However, about five years ago, his sons decided to give it an LS swap, enhancing its performance. As time passed, though, they couldn’t resist the urge to further modify this incredible ride and add a few extra upgrades. As performance enthusiasts, we’re all familiar with this feeling to want to go faster after a car has been the same way for a while.

After a clutch failure, the sons convinced their dad that it was the perfect opportunity to not only replace the clutch but also install a supercharger under the hood. I mean, why not boost those power numbers up a bit to make this thing a little more fun to drive. Sure, the car was awesome but it could always be better so the project became a special Father’s Day gift, aimed at boosting the 1968 Camaro to new heights. After all, who doesn’t appreciate a little extra horsepower?

In the video below, ScrapLife Garage, our host, takes us through the entire process of transforming the Camaro from a sweet machine to an even more exhilarating one. Watching the dad’s somewhat restrained yet undoubtedly pleased reaction as he receives these new performance enhancements for his Camaro is truly heartwarming. It’s a testament to the joy that comes from sharing the car hobby with loved ones.

Last but not least, who doesn’t love the sound of a little bit of boost?! Albeit a muted whine due to the supercharger being a factory pullout from another car, that sound is still unmistakable.
