Pro-touring is our specialty. Pro-touring is taking an older car and building it to do everything well. Whether you are into drag racing, autocross, track days or just long drives on curvy roads, pro-touring is probably what you want. Blackdog has the knowledge and technology to make any car do everything well.

Resto-mod (restoration + modern parts/technology) draws from the advancements in automobile technology to enhance the performance and comfort of your classic car. Somewhat different than pro-touring, resto-mod leans towards comfort and drive ability.   

Come by and enjoy the Blackdog experience.

55 Bel Air - Black Velvet - 2016 SEMA Project

Since its introduction to the marketplace, the 1955 second generation Tri-Five Bel Air was advertised as the "Hot One" in GM's mid-50's ad campaigns.  

For the 2016 SEMA project, we found a Tri-Five in decent condition and then put the Blackdog team to work.

The SEMA project focused around bringing out the beauty and delivering speed for the Tri-Five platform.

Working from the ground up, BlackDog utilized an independent rear end kit and then had the chassis powder coated to make it pop.

BlackDog replaced the power plant with a Chevrolet Performance LS-7, normally aspirated 7.0L (427 CID) partnered with a 6-speed Tremec transmission.
