A couple weeks back, we found out that Oklahoma-based Classic Recreations was planning to offer new and updated versions of the 1969-70 Ford Mustang Boss 302, 1969-70 Mustang Boss 429 and 1969-70 Mustang Mach 1. It's great news for those who want to drive a classic without risking a true collector. According to GM Authority, new versions of the 1968 Yenko Camaro will soon go on sale thanks to the Brand New Muscle Car company.

The latest episode of Petrolicious looks at auto restorer Adam Martin and his 1968 Chevrolet Camaro that he calls Lucy. He bought the pony car at just 16, and by learning to work on it, the classic Chevy pushed him into his current career. Eighteen years later, Martin has kept driving Lucy and continues to make her even better.
The things we are interested in while young often grow into passions later in life. Take Mark Lundquist for example, whose car collection is highlighted in a new video from Petrolicious. Out of high school in the late 1960s, he worked at a gas station and filled up many of the era's most prized muscle cars. He wanted one but couldn't afford it until years later after his kids went to college. Now, he finally has his dream collection, which includes two classic Chevrolet Super Sports.
Jay Leno returns to hosting duties in his garage after spending a day with Jerry Seinfeld, welcoming fellow comedian Tim Allen and his homebrew 1968 Camaro 427 COPO to his garage. Allen says he got hooked on a green 1968 Camaro he used to see as a kid racing on Woodward in Michigan, but when it came time for his own he went beyond that original hero car.
