LS Fest West is one of those wild and crazy car shows that attracts people from all walks of life. So, it can be difficult to stand out from the crowd. More difficult still, if you’ve brought a ubiquitous fifth-generation Camaro. People bring all kinds of crazy cars that have been LS-swapped. See our show recap, here. Just for quick reference, we’ve seen ls-swapped mini coopers, Mercedes AMG, Volkswagen beetles, AMC Gremlin, Ford Pinto, and plenty more oddballs. Still, we happened to find a Camaro, of all things, that stood out among them.
Kayla Rundle’s 2013 Camaro is the one pictured here. Now, before you chauvinistic types jump in with some snarky comment about why we chose to feature Kayla’s Camaro – listen up. We happened upon the sand-colored Camaro as she and her boyfriend were walking away from the car. In our defense, he was closer to the car, so we made the mistake of assuming it belonged to him.
Before we could ask him question one, Kayla jumped in and promptly stated it was, in fact, her car. Admittedly, we were caught off guard. Especially when she started dropping haymaker Camaro knowledge bombs on us like Tyson in the glory days of his black trunks and a ringside Cus D’Amato.
As we began speaking with her about the strangely provocative late-model ‘maro, she started in with a bunch of tidbits of information that were previously unknown to us. Things like unique design cues, exhaust options, and various interior changes, all of which vary from one model year to the next. She really knew her stuff!
Of course, we weren’t surprised in the least by all of this. Kayla is not only a gearhead and autofile, but she’s also attending The Art Center College Of Design in Pasadena, California studying Transportation Design. So, it makes sense that she has “designs” on working in the automotive industry. You can find out more about her and the things she’s working on by following her YouTube channel. She’s amassed quite a following already and is cranking out content like nobody’s business.
Kayla’s got plenty of videos breaking down her Camaro build, but there’s more to see on her channel. She’s also made several tech/install videos and plenty of content surrounding her daily driver Civic if you’re into that sort of thing…
Even though you can get up to speed on her Camaro by watching her talk about it, which is, let’s face it, a lot more entertaining, we’ll give it the old college try for you here as well.
Not Just Another Camaro
She’s A Looker
Don’t take our word for it, check out Kayla’s social media channels and maybe you can see it for yourself. She’s very active in the community and her car is known to be seen at plenty of Souther California meet-ups and those in Arizona as well. For now, you’ll just have to drool over these photos.
