Default First post 69 Camaro

Hello Lateral G, first I would like to compliment and congratulate Jeff and Cindy Carpenter for their outstanding Camaro featured this month. Beautiful car and some outstanding workmanship! Well done, I am inspired. Thanks also to
Mark Stielow, it was his build and book that led me to this forum. I can only hope to aspire to build something like these cars some day.
In April of this year I purchased a nice car with a lot of good parts and some good work and some not so good, as usual. I am enjoying tearing apart and reworking most of what was here to get things in order and working correctly. The motor is a very strong 383, solid lifter, roller rockers on Edelbrock heads, Hooker, Demon, March, Hydrotech, Global West, QA1 coil overs, built 700R4, Quicksilver, 12 bolt 3:73 posi 4 link. Plans are for the AFX spindles, A Arms and Baer 13 inch brakes, 670 steering box, mini tub. BBC.??

In the 80's I had a shop in Reseda called Performance Tuning, I did a lot of carburetor and special high performance tuning, so I hope I can contribute here.
Thanks for letting me play along.

The car looks great from the single picture, but let's see some more of it.
Don't be afraid to show what you don't like about it and plan on changing...

Welcome. Where about in Reseda was your shop back in the 80's? 48 years in Tarzana here.
If it ain't buckin, chirpin & makin all kinds of bad noises, then I ain't happy

Accelerating is optional...........stopping is mandatory. Your car WILL stop one way or another.
