How's it going guys? I'm new to team camaro and new to car restoration as well. I have very little mechanical experience but hope to learn as i go. Ever since I was able to drive I've always wanted a first gen camaro. During my time in the military i told myself that when i got out it was the first thing on my bucket list. Well I finally have my first gen. Like i said i'm new to the team and to car restoration and hope that through this forum and some help from you guys it will help the process of restoring my 67RS go smooth. Thanks and look forward to talking to you!

Re: Newbie

Definitely to do a resto-mod. Would like a nice ballsy weekend driver out of it. It currently has a 350 crate engine that runs fairly well and of the rest Im unsure of. The gentleman I purchased it from had no idea about the car. I've been doing some research and I'm really interested in boring it out to a 383. Honestly there is so much to do I'm still trying to figure out what to do first. Any pointers would be great.

Welcome to Team Camaro! And congratz on purchasing the correct year.

If you go 383 you'd be stroking it (from 3.48 to 3.75) as well as boring it (4.000 to 4.030).

While they tend to get crappy mileage I like Big Blocks (see sig). Remember: There ain't no replacement for cubic inch displacement!

That is unless you go with an LSx style set up (I have a 2002 Z28 as my daily driver)...

67 Camaro: 454/TH400/4.10 12 bolt. Lots of options: PS/PDB/PW, tilt, tach, gauges and more. K-K + 797-Z...
