Restoring musclecars in 2013 is not easy, especially if you lack the money and support from a specialist company. However, a tired musclecar can be brought back to life the restomoding way. It's not cheaper by any means, but the results can be staggering.
Houston-based tuning shop Fastlane has started such a project using a 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle and a modern-day Cadillac CTS-V-sourced 6.2-liter engine upgraded to deliver no less than 630 HP. Now that's a hot-rod!

"This has to be one of my favorite projects in recent memory," said Fastlane Co-Founder Nick Field.  "Bringing together automotive technology from two very distinct eras and making a reliable everyday driver that performs is always a blast.  Plus we get to create something unique that will provide its owner with years of fun."

Finished in Marina Blue paint, the Chevelle TS-V, as Fastlane named its "new-old musclecar", also sports a Chevrolet Perfomance transmission, custom RodeTech suspension, custom Boze wheels, Vintage Air systems AC unit and a 3-inch Magnaflow exhaust.

The Cadillac-powered Chevelle is not yet finished, but the final product should have a respectable dose of awesomeness in it. We'll be keeping our eyes open!
