After 17 months and many 17 hour days, the Ridetech team unveiled their latest masterpiece last Tuesday at SEMA – the Goodguys G/RS 1969 Camaro. The G/RS Camaro represents a new era in the Goodguys legacy and corporate logo, signifying the emergence of today’s Muscle Machines while joining the esteemed Goodguys ’32 Ford Tudor which has stood as the main Goodguys icon for the last 30 years.
The G/RS build team consisting of Dennis Niehaus, Kurt Blackgrove and Greg Schneider were on hand for the grand unveiling as Ridetech founder and President Bret Voelkel took the floor to send the Camaro to its new home in Pleasanton, California. The car will be used to further promote the Goodguys brand through AutoCross events, driving tours and every day street use.
The bright yellow beast, a huge draw in the Goodguys booth all week at SEMA, features General Motors’ new LSA engine, TREMEC T56 Magnum six speed transmission, complete RideTech Suspension, Moser rear end, PPG “Goodguys Yellow” paint, Baer brakes, Forgeline wheels, BF Goodrich rubber, Vintage Air A/C, Dakota Digital gauges, Interior by Hudson Rod & Custom, RECARO seats, a fuel tank by Rick’s Tanks, American Autowire Harness as well as other goodies from Speedway Motors and Rick’s Camaro Parts.
