The goal for this idolised American muscle car, was to create one of the most innovative street machines ever built in this country. It had to be, as it was always the intention of Robert Zahabi from Rides by Kam, to float it across the big pond to take on the best-of-the-best at SEMA, Las Vegas. That’s a big ask, however Rob’s got runs on the board. His yellow, ‘69 Camaro (Kamaro) knocked the yank’s socks off when it toured the states in 2012/2013. After its stunning unveil at MotorEx’s huge, tenth anniversary, in 2010, Kamaro went onto become one of the most talked about vehicles at SEMA 2012. It was the centrepiece of the Meguiar’s stand, Popular Hot Rodding nominated it as one of the show’s top trendsetters and it appeared on the cover of a number of magazines.
That was then, this is now. Robert tells us that for this build he took things to the next level. “Kamaro was great but we think this is then some.” As well as being a phenomenal, elite-level build, it combines stunning attention-to-detail, incredible finish, unusual colours and that essential muscle car ingredient; huge gobs of brute horsepower. Mind you, all of this is offset by the incorporation of innovative and intelligent engineering to ensure it’s a true driver. And if you think you know what to expect from Rides by Kam, style wise, hang onto your hat, this beast will be radically different.
We’d love to tell you more, however you’ll just have to wait until the MotorEx 14, FreeStyle Rides Inauguration. It kicks off at 11:00am Saturday, July 19, Melbourne Showgrounds, Ascot Vale. Make sure you’re there to catch this killer ride when the silk covers come off.
