About $150,000 will solve that problem.

Not sure what you really want! This could be my old '69 327 2bbl PG pegleg I had in the 70's or it could be a factory ZL-1

Question

Are my eyes going bad or are the rear tires and rims bigger and taller than the fronts?? or is it just the angle the photo was shot from?

Nice car, but the factory ZL1's didn't sit that high as delivered.

It's a factory ZL-1, photo angles can be deciving... The point is there was nothing special in the stance of a ZL-1!! Most had dog dish hubcaps and looked like the plane jane 327, 307 and 6cyl cars!!

Jim - there are several things you can do to alter your suspension, even tire and wheel selection can have a big effect on stance. Spend some time reading through the posts in the suspension forum. You'll see what I mean. Oh! You may not ever get the look your after using a '69 as the model because of the change in body lines and wheel well openings.

I didn't mean to imply that a ZL1 sat any diffent from any other Camaro. I was just saying that none of em sat that high from the factory. Camera angles aside, that car shows the tops of both the left side tires with several inches to spare and they just didn't have that stance when new. A local kid, several years younger than I am got one for his 15th birthday. (Can you imagine hauling your parents around in that thing for a year with a learner's permit?) His parents, of considerable resources bought each of the 4 kids any car they wanted when they turned 15. This was his request and his mother found it in Colorado, drove her Cadillac out and flat towed it back to Georgia on a bumper hitch with only the driveshaft removed. After the car had been street raced, drag raced, changed to small block, then left outside for a number of years, I stupidly passed on it in the mid 80's for $3500. with tons of paperwork, and the phone # of the guy who had the original engine in a jet boat. I still have pictures of the car when close to new somewhere and also in the poor state it was in when available for sale. It ended up restored in the Milton Robson collection (Gainsville Ga) which is frequently mentioned on one of the car shows (My Classic Car or either American Muscle Car????) on TNN and I've got more pictures of it in that showcase. It's since been sold and I don't know where it is. It's Hugger Orange.

Getting your Camaro to sit is the easy part..Getting it to roll over, and play dead..is REALLY challenging!

The hugger orange #65 ZL-1 remains in GA and resides in Jasper about 30 miles north of Atlanta. The ZL-1 owner also owns the Jasper Jeep dealership.
