Joe Rogan is a man that seldom needs an introduction these days. The comedian, former Fear Factor host, Taekwondo black belt, BJJ black belt, and UFC commentator is perhaps best known for being the host of the Joe Rogan Experience (Spotify’s number one podcast), and he loves himself some old muscle cars. Recently, the notorious podcaster had an 1969 Chevrolet Camaro restored to his liking by some of the best in the business: Roadster Shop.
As we said, the 54-year-old Joe Rogan is a car guy, with a collection ranging from his Tesla to a restomod Icon Ford Bronco. As for this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro, the restored muscle car sports a massive 860 horsepower LSA V8 engine by Wegner Automotive that is connected to a Bowler T-56 Magnum XL transmission. The braking system utilizes Baer’s 6-piston brakes both in the front and rear hiding underneath satin black HRE P101SC wheels wrapped around massive Michelin tires, 345/30R19 in the rear and 255/35R18 in the front. All of this sits on a signature Roadster Shop Spec bolt-in chassis. Pretty serious hardware, if we do say.
Other highlights from the build include beautiful CNC badging on the outside as well as hand made lower splitter and a one of a kind bumper featuring 7-inch LED headlights as well as billet LED tail lights and a three-piece hand crafted spoiler. Inside the Camaro you’ll find a fully custom interior designed by Avant Garde Design in Florida. There is continued “RS” badging, a custom steering wheel, and Recaro Expert seats with Corbeau harnesses to keep you safe while screaming down the interstate. Dakota Digital gauges are used in place of the original speedometer and a machined backlit dash are some of the other modern touches that bring the 1969 Camaro into the 21st century.
Roadster Shop’s website has an extensive photo library of the project if you wanted to check out how it started and eventually turned out. Roadster Shop’s 30,000 square foot headquarters is based out of Mundelein Illinois, and the shop believes “Function and Form should work in tandem.” It might be fair to say the Joe Rogan 1969 Camaro build accomplishes just that.
