Hello Hello from the NW

Hello

Just wanted to introduce myself as I'm a new and oh so proud owner of a 67 RS/SS. My name is Azedin but I go by Az. Originally from Bosnia, but reside now in Portland, Oregon for the last 18 years.

Backstory: Just like most people, I've always wanted that muscle car in the garage to walk into and wrench away only to have the joy of powering her up one day... Well Fast Forward to working at a Mitsubishi Performance Shop and having access to a garage, lifts, storage, co-workers with vast knowledge in these cars.

Being my first muscle car, I was initially going to go with the 63-68 Nova route (just a bit cheaper) but a co-worker came across this and couldn't pass it up (One of those, would of kicked myself in the *** later moments)


Long story short - customer wanted to have this restored by a shop then ran out of money so shop bought it from him, posted it for sale, and along I came. Has ALL of the interior/exterior pieces with new seats and carpeting along with some other goodies on it.. all in all, I couldn't be happier and cant wait to start wrenching on it. It's been a dream of mine to own a muscle and build it up for quite sometime and I'm lucky the day is finally here.

Info: 67 Camaro RS/SS - 12bolt rear end, rack/pinion steering conversion, few suspension goodies, etc I know most of you are "stick to originality" but I've always been different. Horsepower is Horsepower, sometime's its just easier to come across it going a different route. It will have an LS Twin Turbo with a 6 Spd Tranny setup going.. I'll be happy when it peeks 650-700 hp mark. As for which LS, not sure yet, but got some time.

I know those #'s are "TOO MUCH FOR A MANUAL" but this isn't as much of a drag car as it is my take it out on the road a sunny day car. Sure I'll take it to the track and drag it here and there, but It's literally a car I'm wanting to drive out on the open roads, but with the power to burn rubber all day.

Anyways, enough talking.. here's some photos! (cell phone)

Few Pics from day 1

Re: Hello Hello from the NW

Welcome from another Northwesterner, up in the Seattle area.
Nice score, looks like a cool start on a project.

I'm a horsepower guy so I like what you are thinking, any motor and a twin turbo will EASILY make 600-700 horse, but I like the sound of it
Also no problem with a manual, guys are doing that all the time. Good luck and enjoy the site, there is tons of knowledge on here!
