RUSH 1967 Chevy Chevelle SS Raises the Bar

  RUSH 1967 Chevy Chevelle SS Raises the Bar Taking the iconic lines of a first-generation Chevelle and infusing it with more than just an updated suspension and wheel/tire combination raises the bar and makes the difference in creating a car that stands out wherever you see it. It's the design elements fused with extreme attention to detail that creates its own individual personality, making it memorable. For Eddy Guillu of Franklin Park, Illinois, the fire was lit deep inside him starting at young age thanks, in many ways, to the family business.

The 2018 SEMA Show in Las Vegas is a hot rodding extravaganza with miles and miles of performance parts, astonishing vehicles, celebrity sightings, and amazing engines. Power plants get a car enthusiast's blood pumping, and SEMA is the place to see the wildest in terms of horsepower and design. The thump of a big cam, boost from a blower or turbo, or a wicked nitrous kit gets us emotional.

Let's face it, the engine is the heart of any hot rod, be it a Street Rod, drag car, road racer, or boulevard brawler. And while we do love flashy paint, a custom interior, or a trick set of wheels and tires, the engine makes it go.

Each year, SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) packs everything we love about high performance into four days automotive bliss, and that includes wild engines. Nothing is off limits in terms of outlandish and over the top. And while Dodge, Ford, and GM have never made it easier to purchase power, we also saw some of the coolest homebuilt and professionally-built powertrains stuffed in all kinds of vehicles.

At SEMA, manufacturers show off the hottest and newest components, builders present their awesome creations, and thousands of car nuts drool as they walk up and down the aisles. As if that's not enough, there is a world of outdoor activities including exhibition driving, manufacturer displays and seemingly endless show cars.

For this assignment, we ventured out to find the coolest engines stuffed in the vast array of cars, trucks and bikes. Thankfully, with more than 1,000 vehicles on display, it wasn't hard to find the internal combustion art, and a few electric ones, too. This included some 1950s iron up to a eCOPO Camaro with 100-percent electric power.

It was clear that builders from all over the globe brought their "A" game to SEMA. Passion for cars and engine building was evident. We encountered everything from modified stockers to the most extreme engineering. Engine swaps rank high on the cool factor list, and there was no shortage of Big-Block, Small-Blocks and other mills married to vehicles of all shapes and sizes. So kick back a take a look at over 100 hot engines from the greatest automotive show on Earth.
