My New '68 Camaro

Hey everyone, i recently put up a welcome post talkin about me and my possible future trade, and it went through. Yesterday i went and drove about 11 hours total to trade our 84 vette for this project car. It's a 1968 camaro, just the shell with no interrior or anything. It has a little bit of rust in some places, very little though. The floor pans and trunk pan were replaced (kinda looks like shoddy work so i'm gonna work on it, spatter everywhere, gaps in the weld). I plan on doing a LS2 swap with a T56, TMI interrior for a cleaner modern interrior, power everything with A/C and what not. Of course i've never done anything like this so i'm gonna be asking y'all for advice but i'm really excited to start this!

Re: My New '68 Camaro

Great starting point and should be a fun project. I would suggest good planning on each part of the restoration and price check what ever you buy. I would say a couple of years and $40K and you will have a great machine. Good luck and keep us posted.
