I've been meaning to make my own thread with the pics I have. Anyway, my Camaro was the first car I bought when I was 19 (I'm now 42). A guy in my hometown had it and I remember seeing it around town even when I was pretty young. Those RS headlight doors always caught my attention. I pestered the guy who currently owned it for months always asking him when he was going to sell me his car. Well one day he asked me if I still wanted to buy it, needless to say the deal was done pretty quickly. Car was mine for 2k. I still remember my Dad telling me how stupid I was, he's changed his mind now :yes:. Anyway, 23 years later finally all the major stuff is done and proud to say I did all the work myself :beers:

Unfortunately I didnt take a ton of pics from when I first bought the car. I did a ton of mechanical stuff early on. Engine, tranny entire front end etc. Then I started collecting parts over the years. Had some setbacks, divorce etc. The first pics from my post are only from last year. I did the sheet metal work probably 10 years ago and then it sat in my garage. Last year I was on a mission to get it finished.

Yeah I did all my body work when I first bought it then after my Uncle died - was my go to guy and project buddy - I let the car sit for almost 20 years. Last summer started working on the interior and mechanical again and hope to be back on the road in a few more weeks.

Thats great! Stick with it, its pretty awesome to finally be able to drive it after years. The looks and compliments are worth all the effort and work.
