Thanks for the add to the sight. My name is Josh and am now the owner of a 1974 Camaro.
It was my moms back in the day, but dad tore it apart to rebuild it but never got around to it. So he told me it can be my project. As the car sits now, its just a shell. no interior, engine etc, leaving lots of room for imagination. Going to be a long but fun project.

Welcome, Josh. What part of the state are you from?

Experience...... It's what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.

Welcome, Josh.
Make a logbook of the parts and changes you make to the Camaro.
It will be worth its weight in gold later in life.

well that's one of many things I'm still unsure of. I've been looking at some crate engines because I've built an engine before so I'd rather just have one to drop in. I am wanting to go with EFI because carbs are to finicky with weather changes and a pain in the cold. Blue print makes a 427 efi ive been looking at. Also just a quick search on here lead me to Hurst driveline conv. so I am hoping to do a six speed manual conv. to it as well. Takes away from the heritage though. Any input from experience is appreciated.
