Default Rick Dorion's 69 vert

I always wanted a 69 camaro convertible and bought one 5 years ago. The condition was 'a driver' and it's a work in progress! Over the years, I've done all the mechanical work myself and had local talent fill-in where needed such as an Autogear M22, upgraded 12 bolt internals and new floors and 8 pt rollbar. I'm nearing the end with the motor and a full repaint waiting and have NOS quarters and tailpan in my barn!

Here's Kris' great rendering:

Sounds like a great project, and the rendering is kick-ass Rick!
I can't get your page to load, how about some build pics?

Looking real nice. There's nothing like a 69 RS 'vert....I like the look of the medium blue with that wheel style...
