With 19 magazine covers and a starring role in Hollywood Nights, Popular Hotrodding's Project X is the classic hotrod. Since 1965 it's been modified constantly, but GM wanted to take a shot at the vehicle it had created 50 years ago. The General started with a 427 crate engine, and added parts from production models like the C6 Corvette and even the Chevy Colorado. Seats come from the Cadillac STS, a new center cluster was added, and the giant steering wheel from a 1963 Impala SS rounds out the interior. We were there for the live unveil of the updated four-wheeled legend, and you can view some of the action by clicking play on the video above.

      They say a Camel is a horse designed by a committee. I think this was designed by Camels.

      While the engineering sounds impressive, this has been done by backyard hotrodders to the most extent several times already. It is interesting that they felt that it was necessary to go to the "tried and true" 'ole '57 to make this point, whatever it was. I agree with Todd, *yawn* too.

        this would be a very impressive car if this were 1969, not 2007
