With the help of GM Performance Parts, 8 students from Washtenaw Community College spent this summer restoring and updating one of the most popular muscle cars of all time - a '70 Chevelle. Now that's my idea of a summer job!

The car will be a featured vehicle in GM's SEMA display, and is the subject of an episode of "Rides" on The Learning Channel (in the U.S.).

The car is motivated by an off-the-shelf 620 hp ZZ572 crate engine (with 650 lb-ft of torque!), running through a four-speed Hydra-matic transmission. Four wheel disk brakes, Hotchkiss front and rear suspension upgrades, and 18-inch front/19-inch rear forged aluminum wheels complete the running gear.

Oh, the color? It's PPG's custom "Oh So Orange!" More pics after the jump.
