40 Days to SEMA 2014

Stopped by the shop yesterday to get a couple of pictures of the Mitchell Camaro - with just 40 days until the SEMA 2014 Show - the car is looking awesome and on schedule - stay tuned for more pictures and updates from the CHC crew in the days ahead.  Ron 

Countdown to SEMA

57 Days in counting until we leave for another great SEMA Show in Las Vegas! 

I woke up to a brisk 44 degree weather here in the Northwest. It signifies another school year, trees changing colors and the days are getting shorter (not to mention another football season). For hot rod shops around the nation fall means SEMA is just around the corner and the midnight oil is burning to get that next creation to Vegas.

Things are in full swing here at CHC with another fresh build to debut at the Dynomax Exhaust booth. This will be our fourth year partnering with the amazing group at Dynomax and I think you will agree this is our best car yet!

Phil Mitchell's '69 Camaro is a special project that has been two years in the making with extensive metalwork at the hands of Josh Ewing. Sumner Collision wrapped up a beautiful white paint in record time and now it is heading to Jamie McFarland for a custom leather interior next week.

I invite you to follow along as we head toward the finish line. We have along ways to go but things are moving forward as we installed the drive train on Monday.  

We have a few surprises up our sleeves!  Join us as we count down for SEMA 2014.

1969 Mitchell Camaro Update

The long anticipated return of Phil Mitchell's '69 Camaro is here! The incredible metal work from Ewing Kustoms is finished and guaranteed to set this car apart from the sea of other Camaros. I don't say this lightly but this is the most amazing to roll out the doors of CHC yet! How can you go wrong with a Wegner 850 Hp LS, Baer brakes Forgeline wheels and supported by Art Morrison chassis components? Stay tuned as we countdown to SEMA 2014 as we debut another car for the Mitchell collection. - Chris


Tyler's 1968 Chevy C10

Tyler's truck came in to CHC as a beautiful LS powered hot rod that needed a little detail work to finish it off. The truck had a carburetor system and Tyler wanted to go back to EFI. We went with the Atomic system from MSD along with an Edelbrock Victor Jr. manifold. The firewall was smoothed out along with custom closeout panels fabricated to clean up the engine compartment. A thousand other details were addressed to clean up the look and make the truck much more enjoyable to drive. The transformation took place over a few weeks- finished just in time for Tyler to enjoy the nice cruising weather here in the North West.  Chris
