2023 Camaro Nationals Re-Cap 1024 576 Karl Scheffy

I want to thank all the Camaro and Firebird owners who came out to Morgantown for this year’s Nationals.  Without cars and car owners, there is no show. From our first event in 1999, through two venue changes, and the release of two additional generations of Camaro, you have grown with us – both in…

  Thanks for another great turnout for the 22nd Camaro Nationals. Many had concerns back in March, when the decision was made to go ahead with the show.

2019 Camaro Nationals Re-Cap

2019 Camaro Nationals Re-Cap 1024 680 Karl Scheffy

The 2019 Nationals will be an event I will remember for quite a while. First and foremost, was the absence of our dear friend Bud Scolastico. Time will heal wounds, but this first year without him was extra tough a couple of times. Marla and Crystal both made comments that Bud would be taking care…

LS1 or LS6?

LS1 or LS6? 150 150 Karl Scheffy

Scott Settlemire 3/12/19 A few of you have asked me about the “LS6” block versus the “LS1” block. Very simply, we could not supply enough LS1 blocks back in, as I recall, 1999. Thus, the corp (GM) made the commitment to build another plant to produce more V8 ‘blocks’ — the difference is that if…

I will always remember Bud as a real car guy and a devoted grandfather. I first met him and Marla, with his recently purchased 1968 SSRS big block, back in 1999 at the first Camaro Nationals. He really got off on how everyone was so friendly and talked to him about his car. At the…

I got my first Camaro Brochure in early September of 1968.  I was at the ‘Great Allentown Fair’, and drooled over what I  thought was a new model of Corvair.  There was a line of people in front of a tent – and the sign said “FREE” – so my brother and I stood at…
