1979 Camaro

Take a look at my "well loved" Camaro.

How I received it:



Looks pretty clean right? WRONG

Floors had quarter-size holes in them from the t-tops leaking. Seats were rusted out. Wiring was a rats nest. etc.




In the process of isntalling all new suspension, front and rear. Brakes, brake lines, and just about anything that involves a hose. Engine is a chevy crate 350 so I plan on getting all of the issues ironed out before putting some bolt-ons on the engine. (with a few bolt ons I can get over 400hp with this engine).



Anyone else have a project car?

Why? Did your neighbors keep trying to steal it? That camero definitely fits in better at the trailer park

First thing that needs to be done is some proper offset wheels and tires and get those things tucked in there. Redneck jacked up maro's are an abomination.

Agreed. They are gone now and am in the process of getting 17" rims. The tires were rotted to hell when I got the car. Also removed and replaced the air shocks. Uggg hillbilly crap.

Prefer the engine. The ls in the vette leaves very little for improvement. Plus I prefer the trips vs the convertible. Dunno why must be my 80's roots showing.

Did I say that? No. You just hit a power wall very quickly vs a carborated crate engine. I can get 700hp out of a zz crate. Hard to do with a ls.

The LS series is, essentially, the god of easy-to-make-power SB v8's.
