Hello! '68 from Austin, TX - Ven

A warm hello from the heart of Central Texas, AUSTIN. It has taken me forever to join Team Camaro, mostly because we have our own f-body forum in Austin, www.afbforums.com and the 1st Gen membership is pretty good. Nice to be here finally.

I've been working on my car for about 2 years now, and with the help of a fellow AFB member, it's finally good to go. It is definitely not a racer or super fast by any means, but it is a muscle car cruiser that gets a lot of attention wherever it goes. I kept it clean, simple and semi-pro-touring.

Motor - Pace Performance 350 SBC with a mild Lunati Cam
KRC Power Steering Front Accessories
MSD Streetfire Ignition
Headers and custom dual exhaust
Trans - Hurst Drivelines Tremec TKO-600 Elite Kit
Suspension - QA1 Adjustable Coilovers Front
CCP 2" Drop Spindles Front
QA1 Adjustable Shocks Rear
Multileaf 2" Drop Springs Rear
Tubular Upper and Lower Control Arms
Aftermarket Swaybars Front and Rear
Interior - Autometer Electric Gauges
Pro-car bucket seats
Custom JVC Stereo with speakers in door and rear deck

Tons of other parts that haven't been mentioned

Goodies to come soon - Just Rear Ends complete Ford 9" rear end
Wilwood 13" BBK Front
Wilwood 12" BBK Rear

Here are some pictures.
