This week on the Garage, James and Mike from +Ringbrothers wowed SEMA with their 5,000-man-hour build on this 50-year-old classic that took Best in Show.

GM needs to hire these guys to run their design and performance division.
Jon Doe
This looks better than anything out today in my opinion.
J.P. MOTORSPORTS
I would take this car over any exotic.
Maverick Grabber
These guys deserve lots of thumbs ups. Just an amazing muscle car.

Gray is such an underrated color. Done right, like in this case, it can make a car look so much better than just slapping candy apple red or whatever all over it to make it "pop". Beautiful car and as Jay said, so many details to behold.
Colin Genereux
In fact, I'm not sure what was funniest, watching Jay turn back into a teenager, or watch Mr.Ring nervously hold on for dear life!!!! You could see him thinking, "what have I got myself into". !!!! Bouhaha ha!!! LMAO, this was one of the best Jay Leno's Garage episodes I have seen!!! Keep 'em comin'. It is awesome to see all these top notch cars, seeing how they drive, getting Jay's very expert opinion on them, and, the occasional burn out!!!!!
Michael Zola
This is a mean piece of work.  From the craftsmanship of the motor to the highly defined custom parts, it is art, inside and out.  I also enjoy the fact that the body paint and accessories are not overcompensating for it's powerful features.  The car is not screaming "pay attention to me", but once one cares to look, they can become mesmerized by every detail on this amazing project.    Great car to feature on this episode +Jay Leno's Garage.  Congratulations to the team.  Nice to hear that they got the recognition that is deserved.  It's really saying a lot when the only qualm Jay had on his test drive, was it having a weak braking system to compensate it's performance.  
jake smith
why do i love those wheels so much!?
Jet City
This is what a dream car is.
Daniel Van Dusen
My god, those wheels are glorious. I don't understand how there could be any controversy at all over them.
Andrew Cuthbertson
We live in a time of pump gas, reliable 1,000 horsepower engines. Incredible.
TrickShot1100
Their automotive talent is great. What a beautiful car !! 
Rennis Tora
the rings on the rims make me think of a wheelchair...
Schön
Hey GM, listen up: Bring back this style Chevelle, we're ready! Dodge brought back their Challenger - huge success. Ford has been riding their Mustang forever - huge success. Bring this back! (w/optional big block, of course)
pbfloyd13
1000 HP... 16 Gallon tank... Well it fast but only for about 20 minutes at a time.
Ian Coates
very clean car, love the carbon details and sort of JDM-esque look
Bret Fisher
"Not Ringling Brothers, Ring brothers. These are the guys without the bear and the tricycle..." Jay's hilarious.
MuscleCar Connection
The best in the business, more than builders, they are automotive engineers and craftsmen and very humble guys. They are always available to talk to car nuts and fans and are just plain cool. There cars always draw a crowd and I have been fortunate enough to have interviewed Mike at several shows including the Grand National Roadster Show. I got a chance to do an in depth overview of Recoil on video. Can't wait for their next build!    
Mister j
Im not normally a big american car fan, but, take my money now!
FRANK TOBAR
Always show nice cars!!!never see chavy Impala 72 convertible.
focused313
The attention to detail. Everything is beautiful. I even like the concept of the seats... I wonder how adjustable they are. The fabrication in this car. .. Goodness gracious.
Ex-Law Enforcement
Man, This car hit a special place in my heart! I had a 66' SS Chevelle myself and sure wish I had it back, truly my favorite of all my car's. The Ring Brother sure ain't up there in the Midwest just "Shuck'in Corn" for sure. Their some of the Premier Car Builders in the country.  I love what these guy's do when they build a car. Very High Tech yet "Classy"-their not over the top yet they are if you get my drift. Thanks Jay, for all you do and show us poor 0ld people (ha-ha) these fabulous cars!
CJSchecter96
who would question that color? its beautiful!
OtisENGINEuity
you know, I had the same kind of fun in a 66 FJ40 with a fiberglass body, Toyota granny gear/overdrive 5 spd pickup trans, 400hp small block chevy and 4:11 gears in the stock toyota axles.. If you got into the secondaries it'd light up the 33x12.50 mud terrains for 100ft in every gear.. by the time you hit 4th you were doing 100-120 depending on when you had shifted.. That thing was completely unusable too but it could go offroad.. (it sucked on the highway and was stupid to go that fast in something with such a short wheelbase) and it cost a hell of a lot less.
David Findley
66/67 chevelle best car ever built because I had one when I was 19 years old back in 1980 had a 327/4 speed munsey,craiger mag's bubble scoop hood, jacked up in the rear, so on and so on. Lots of fun even back then got lots of compliments. Lots a girl friends.
an gh
Jay you should do some more pickups or 4x4 stuff
dwayne aguiar
Hay Jay I happen to have the prototype Z16 Chevelle built at the Baltimore plant. The one prototype and the 200 production units compries the often quoted 201 figure.One convertible was reportedly specially built for Chevy General Manager Semon "Bunkie" Knudsen, but is understood to have been destroyed.Its being completely restored.If your Interested in this one and only car. Contact me. Thank you.

This car is far beyond awesome! Would prefer this thingbefore I would even consider anything else...American Muiscle cars are hot...Out here in Europe people that have the financial potential seem to favor the Italian and German stuff. For obvious reasons...I would prefer something like this!!
NinjaZXRR
like how they blended modern tech on a muscle car looks great and works great
Paxsali
Never heard of Chevelle Recoil in my life. Instantly fell in love with it! Best looking classic american musle car, IMHO. The esthetics on this car are out of this world.
Roger J
Does anyone have the color code for this car? It's beautiful.
Don Castillo
That 2nd gear shift looks like a first gear launch from the way their heads got yanked back.
Lathan Starnes
This car is so well done. By far my favorite ring brothers creation. Outrageous, but somehow still tasteful.
nylonsteel
The "R" emblem reminds me of  Datsun/Nissan  emblem
Tom From MySpace's Dog
Are those camaro tail lights?
Stingray
They have an artistic eye. Fantastic aesthetic. Those colors work for me, and I like the creative use of products already on the market. I also loved the sound of that supercharger.  Amazing car all around. Thanks for sharing.  I wish I had a car!
tim moore
I think this might be the most fun I've seen him have in one of these tests.
iluvmypet
oh my god... that engine sound is ORGASMIC !
RamblinAround
You can always count on Ringbrothers to turn out an amazing machine.  That thing is a monster. I think that's the most impressed Jay has been with a car in quite a while.
Aaron Nicoli
That is actually stunning, the colour is perfect, it shows it for what it is... I hate flashy paint jobs. The detailing and quality look good from what you can see on camera... but, real-life shows all...
sc882tt
by far the hottest chevelle
Michael Dillon
that is Gorgeous
Jason Schauer
I am a euro car guy. But love this! Go American Muscle.
krasky
Awesome! I have never seen a better restyling. Those guys are maestros, very talented and professionell. So much love to the details, like the side pipes, the same screws everywhere! There is so much too discover. The owner is a lucky dude.
Adrien Perié
Most beautiful and amazing modified chevelle I have ever seen by a large margin. The paint job is actually very good, distinctive and gives the car a strong personality. Edit: Too bad they destroyed the original interior which is beautiful, especially the dashboard.
crocop195
i love that whiney sound of the supercharger and gearbox.
GrussimoGarage
The rear profile is dead nuts on the mark.... looks amazing.
Hot80s
I like this ( Recoil ) 66 chevelle a lot better than that ( Tantrum ) 70 charger jay tested recently. Where the makers of the Recoil respected how the chevelle's front end looked from day 1 the guys who built Tantrum ruined the charger's front and back end. Sorry guys you can't top the original charger front end hideaways & rear taillight package.
Frost
Yay I knew something! lol... I laughed because of the pull down. I had a 1990 Cadillac Coupe Deville with the power pull down on the trunk. lol It was a feature that was "all the rage"...lol The fact that it still worked on the 23 year old car was the real surprise. The power antenna said...nope! Yet the radio still played. lol Anyways... :)
linglingjr
I really really love that color. I think it's perfect for this type of thing. It doesn't even look like a chevelle to be honest.
Miles Moore
This car deserves a few hard 1/4 miles passes. Let it stretch it's legs. Give it justice sometime.
Milli Mill
The quality of this car is absolutely ridiculous. I love modern cars exotics super cars and all that but this is hands down the nicest car I have seen in a long time. Maybe ever lol just beautiful
zZ zzZ zZZ zzzZZ
Just perfect!
VX84
First time I seen Jay so giddy and in awe of a car's power. It probably takes a lot to turn him on these days having driven everything under the sun. This car is BA!
Eduardo silva
that's a BEAST!!
21 Gun Salute
a top 5 build of all time
Grapplersplanet
I am trying to find something to criticize about this car but I keep pressing replay...

Awesome car, BUT paint it roman red, then !!!!!! fantastic.
samspace81

Lucky Duck
My personal all time favorite muscle car 1966-67 Chevelle SS ........unfortunately GM only made it 2 model years ..
Beemrdon
Beautiful. My only quibble is that it is too low for the real world.
BB78 Mike 92
Seen this on their website along with the De Tomaso. Love their work. I always explode in my pants when I see their finished car.
Miding Modi
This color is definitely the reason for the award at GM
BIG Al 24
the first 20 seconds will change your life
Tyler Bauer
They cut the car up too much to me and I miss the chrome chrome used to display you had money If there was no chrome you had less money
Black Waterdogs

Is there a video about a "Волга ГАЗ-21" that was shown in the upper right corner during this video?
Mud Wiser
The front end of that car is amazing. WOW what a great job. That just might be the nicest Chevelle I've seen, and that's saying something.
TrapBum

VermilIlion
