n I bought a set of traction bars at Nickey Chevrolet back in the summer of 1969 after breaking the factory spring plates and T-bolts on my first Camaro SS while racing a 1969 GTO. The Nickey traction bars eliminated the wheel hop that plagued first-gen Camaros, especially those equipped with mono leaf springs. The Nickey Camaro traction bars have not been available for nearly 50 years, but with the rising popularity of day-two muscle car restorations, demand has resulted in the reissue of the original Nickey traction bars. Working with Nickey Performance, GSS Supercars now produces an exact replica of the long unavailable originals (first with T-bolts [upper left] and later with the stronger Eaton U-bolts [upper right]). They look just like the originals, are period-correct, and work just as effectively today as the originals did back in the fall of 1966 when Nickey first developed them.
