‘SkidMarks Show’ to Restore and Customize ’67 Camaro for Charity


A fully restored and customized 1967 Chevrolet Camaro built by SkidMarks Show host and Flat 12 Gallery owner Jeff Allen will make its world debut at the second annual Classic Auto Show, set for March 2-4 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The project will generate proceeds for Ronald McDonald House Central Valley.

The build will come together in just 67 days in interactive fashion, with enthusiasts invited to provide recommendations on parts, paint and overall design. Classic Auto Show fans can offer suggestions by voting online, and stay up-to-date by checking out the Project Car webpage and The Classic Auto Show on Facebook or Instagram.

The completed Camaro will head out on a nationwide tour with the Ronald McDonald House Central Valley, where fans will have an opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win the Chevy. Proceeds from the raffle will benefit Ronald McDonald House Central Valley. Raffle tickets to win the ’67 Camaro can also be purchased online, and at The Classic Auto Show.

“Our fans asked for a project car, and that’s what we’re giving them,” said Michael Carlucci, senior vice president at Clarion UX, the show’s producer. “Jeff, his team at Flat 12 Gallery and all our sponsors are working around the clock to finish this car in time. Having the opportunity to document and interact with the build and our fans along the way has only increased curiosity about the finished product.”

 Sponsors for the build include AkzoNobel, Classic Industries, Baer Brakes, Hotchkis Suspension, Black Widow Exhaust, ClassicCars.com, Intercity Lines, Hagerty, Tub O’ Towels, and Rocket Wheels.

“When we build this baby back up, it’s going to be one mean machine,” Allen said.  “I didn’t want it to just be another good-looking Camaro, I wanted it to be an awesome driver as well. That’s why I teamed up with some of the industry’s biggest names to pull off this build in record time.”
