Edi­tor Ro McGone­gal heaped high praise upon GM’s lat­est F-body, even rank­ing the 305hp Z28 as “the best Ca­maro yet.” Re­spond­ing to let­ters crit­i­cal of our staff ’s re­cent 100 se­lec­tions for a HOT ROD Hall of Fame, Gray Baskerville pre­sented 18 reader-sug­gested al­ter­na­tives in a fol­low-up ar­ti­cle en­ti­tled, “The 101st Hot Rod Hero.” Top billing was awarded to Bar­ney Navarro, the speed-equip­ment pi­o­neer de­scribed as “hot rod­ding’s re­nais­sance man.”
