Video of my 68 Camaro RS

Just wanted to share a video of my car and what I have accomplished with basic tools in my garage. I started this project as most with not much to work with. One great thing I had going for me is the body was pretty much great. Everything you see (and allot you don't) I did by myself with the help of this site, as well as a few more, and google. I see allot of nice builds on this site and the magazine's, and wonder how people have such a skill. My car has allot that can't normally be seen at first look. Since I don't have the skill/directions that allot of folk have, I just started with wanting a fast, good handling, car. So the result has me here.

68 Camaro RS
SBC 383 400rwhp, 580rwhp on nos

New FAST 2.0
Aeromtoive Stealth Tank
3" stainless exhaust with remote electric cutouts
Dyantech Header 1 3/4 stepped to 1 7/8 (jet hot coated)
Stage 3 Extreme Automatics 200r4 tranny 3500 stall, trans brake, 2yr warranty rated at 100hp
3" drive shaft 1350 series
Vintage Air

Complete SP&C front suspension (Dual QA1)
subfram connectors
cal-tracs
moser rear 373 posi
4 wheel disc (factory 4piston front)
Hydroboost braking
Ididit chrome steering column
Delphai 600 steering box

American Auto Wire Classic Update Complete Wire Kit Car
Electris fan
Electric Headlights
Hidden wiper system by raingear
Dakota Digital Dash with several adds
Alarm system
power window/locks/trunk

Complete Nitrous system (has remote opener, warmer, Lean Shut down switch, Progressive controller, purge, remote bottle pressure gauge)

Stereo (with sub, and 2 amps)

New Interior ( nice kick panels with speakers)



Again thats just a brief summary. I have basically replaced everything on this car. I started out not knowing a whole lot, but has been a DRUG learning.


Wants:

1. I still need door panels. Can't find the Deluxe door panels anymore except in aftermarket, and so far I have been scared to order them from some of the feed back that I read of individuals saying they fit bad. I would really like to have a nice custom interior done, but funds seem to have slowed this. This is one area that I can't do and find it amazing when I see individuals who can do custom interior.

2. want some better tailights.

3. Better Rear Suspension/Upgrade. Maybe looking to do some sporty driving/track courses. It currently runs 10.6 in the 1/4.

And hey more power..lol I want to build a stronger N/A motor (I know why didn't I go with the LS??).

The list never stops....

Thanks for the props. I will let you know if I come that way, and I occasionally make it to your area.
