Wake up!!!!

This section is dead...

You prostreet boys need to quit snoozing and update everyone on the best looking Camaros (the tubbed ones!)

Mine is coming along, SLOWLY. It's been in the paint booth for 5 months, yes, 5 months (don't ask.)

Here is a recent picture, it's almost there. Just need to bolt on the Prostars, lower it, put all the trim on and install the interior.

Re: Wake up!!!!

I don't think to many people have the heart to tub one anymore! Everyone did that when they were plentiful and CHEAP!

Do your homework!

Re: Wake up!!!!

The car looks great, but I am only 5'8" tall, I would not be able to see over your hood. I had only a 4" lift on my Fiberglass Cowl induction hood, and it really played with my perception. A car this nice, you don't want to run into something.

Wait till he has a blower sticking out the hood.

You guys are killing me! Well, it was just one excuse after another from the painter/body guy. He does good work and is a good dude, but for some reason he felt it was okay to always put my car on the backburner in order to make room for quick insurance jobs that really pay the bills and keep his business running. I'm a very, very patient man.

It needs to be lowered baaaad, especially in the front. I can't wait to get it sitting in the weeds.

Been hearing this all my life. I love cowl hoods, and think most muscle cars are incomplete without one, I'm a tall guy though.

Probably, but I don't think it's all that fast. It's a 468 with a HUGE cam, 200-4R trans, 9" rear w/3.73's. It runs well, but it's more of a cruiser than a race car.
