So, many, feelings…
Kalis DC Camaro & Firebird Blackhawk by All Speed Customs
This 1970 model Pontiac Firebird by All Speed Customs (ASC), is another ground up build but this one is intended to be a high-performance daily driver.
To some, the ‘70 Firebird is considered one of the best bodied Firebirds ever to hit the road and ASC made it even better. It has an impressive list of features including an in-house built 454cu Pontiac twin turbo EFI engine, a DSE suspension, Wilwood brake kit, Tremec transmission, a brand new custom leather interior with racing seats & stereo system, and tons more.
Some seriously well thought out body modifications give the car an updated look while still keeping it’s classic muscle shape. It’s an amazingly thorough build which keeps the soul of this bird alive, but gives it a bit more fire. It has plenty of experience on the street & track and all 1200hp is intended to be used daily.

Damn it Feels Good to be a Pro Skateboarder
You might remember this, the All Speed Customs 1100-hp ’69 Camaro built specially from the ground up for pro skateboarder Josh Kalis. ASC called it the Kalis DC Camaro and it won 2nd place in the top 10 cars at SEMA in 2009.
For those who have seen it before, it’s a nice reminder. For those who haven’t, you can check out all the build photos here.
Would you believe the car pictured above is a Porsche Cayman? That’s right, it’s an extra special Cayman with a Rush Aerokit designed by Anibal Automotive Design and sold by Armadura Exotics in Hollywood, California.
It’s a serious rebody available in fiber glass or, for twice the price you can splurge and get the carbon fiber kit ($50,000!). Armadura makes it easy to fully tune your Cayman with an adjustable Bilstein suspension, front and rear roll bar, Brembo brakes, a rear diffuser ($16,000!), a turbo/intercooler/header kit ($20,000!), some matching leather seats with carbon fiber finish, and some big, bad 20” HRE H-40 wheels paired with Nitto Invo tires.
The complete carbon fiber package with the works will run you roughly $119,000 (not including the car itself), almost double the price of a brand new Cayman S.
But forget about the price for a second (if you can). Just looking at the body kit, I think we have a winner here. It has bold body flares, tons of sharp edges, and details that one could never get bored of and although some may find it a bit gaudy, it harkens back to the slant nose 930’s of the past, a bit. The front bumper may be a little too “exotic” (Ferrari/McLaren) for the Cayman but the rest of the Aerokit looks like it could have been offered as an option straight from the factory.
There are a ton of 911 tuners like RUF, TechArt, and Gemballa but it’s great to see a company actually doing something with the Cayman, a car with so much potential.
