Default March 09 Feature: Todd Akes 69 Camaro

The March 09 Feature of the Month is Todd Akes big block 69 Camaro. It's a bad ass car that quite a few of us got a chance to check it out while in Vegas for SEMA. It has the perfect stance with with slick black paint. It definitely looks right at home under the Vegas lights. I really like the shot with the Vegas Strip in the background - if theres a picture that defines the car's attitude, it would be that one.

Thanks Todd, love the car!

Not only does this car look killer, it has a crisp mean sounding BBC in it. I got a chance to see and hear it at the Lateral G get-together.
