Newb from Kansas

Hello all,

My name is Lance Alexander. I have a REALLY long term 67 Camaro Project. I dug this car out from behind a barn 15 years ago. I have been working on it on and off every since.

I got the car as a shell after blasting i realized there was a huge amount of bondo in the car. I replaced every panel on it except for the roof. surprisingly the floor pans and the frame were in great shape.

The camaro has been upgraded to disk brakes in the front, still drum in the rear. All the suspension is new. We mini tubbed the car a couple years ago and added a cage. I also added a 8.5 10 bolt with an eaton posi 4.10 gears and moser axles. The car has caltrac traction bars and frame rail connectors.

The car is now ready for paint. and will go to the paint shop next month.

I have built 3 different engines for this car but they went to other projects. I grew up in an auto machine shop (grandfather) and worked in one for 5 years while i was going to college. Once it is in your blood it is hard to get out. I now Machine and assemble engines in my spare time as a form of relaxation.

The engine I am putting together now for it is a 427 sbc. 4.185 bore x 3.875 stroke. 11to1 compression. Solid roller cam. Trick Flow heads.

The transmission is a th400 all manual valve body with a 4500 stall.

I joined the site to check out some wheel and tire combinations.

Hey Lance...welcome to the site...glad you're here. Sounds like you're finally going to get your '67 going after many years of work. Most of my family is in KS in the KC area. Best wishes for the holidays!

Re: Newb from Kansas

I really hope to get it finished this time. Seems like every time I get going on it another project or build pops up and it goes back into the corner for a while.
