Guy Fieri, host of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on The Food Network, has a pretty sweet job. He cruises around the country in a 1968 Camaro convertible, making stops at some of the best “greasy spoons” in the U.S.
To most people, Guy is the star of the show. However, as you’ll find out in the video below, his ’68 definitely needs to be bumped up to co-host. Not only does it help Guy showcase his brown-beard/blonde frosted-tip hair combination, it’s also a pretty killer Camaro in its own right.
The DDD host had a plan to rebuild the Camaro’s 392, but decided to shove a ZZ502 crate engine under the hood instead. (Fast fact: it’s Chevrolet’s most popular big-block engine for the street and the strip).
With 505hp and 567lb-ft of torque the $11,000 crate motor is plenty potent and we’re bound to agree with Guy when says the ’68 has “has never been better”.
Guy’s also a died-in-the-wool Chevrolet fan who seems damn proud of the fact he gets to burble around your TV in a vintage American Convertible. Find out more about the real star of DDD below.
