Still a long ways from being a Ride but I think projects can be entered. Hoping to complete by the end of this year. Next steps are Vintage Air install, Moser rear end and finally engine and interior:

Great Entries so far with 2 weeks to go.

Nice to see guys getting in the spirit of ROTM.

To win the car doesn't have to be perfect.

One thing to remember. This is in large part not only a car contest buy a photo contest so keep this in mind when taking pictures to post.

Many times (not just on TC) I see great cars lose because of bad pictures and cars they may not be the best win because of good pictures.

My unrestored NOT perfect X33D80 06A ride as of today. Bought this 20 years ago, pics below. Had it's issues then, but getting better as life still getting in the way. Decent driver car with about 80,000 miles on it when I bought it. Still my work in progress.

This is my son's car. He and I built it about 9 years ago for his high school car. He always loved first gen Camaros so we found one needing complete restoration on CL one day. 4 months later we were done. He chose the color based on the first Transformers movie where the 70 Camaro turned into the 2010 Camaro. This was the color of the 2010 in the movie. My son unfortunately passed away from cancer a little over 4 years ago so I inherited it. I personally would never have owned an old car if it weren't for him. I posted a picture of my son with Adam. Crappy pictures, just wanted to get it entered finally!..:smile2::smile2::smile2:

I'll give it a shot again...

1969 Pro-Tour

I built this car for a friend who wanted a "bad-***" Camaro to replace a 68 he once had. “Blood, sweat and tears” is no exaggeration to describe this build but we love how it turned out!


LS2 w/T56
CPP control arms with coil-overs
2” drop spindles
Rack and pinion steering
Chris Alston 4-link w/coil-overs
Foose Legends wheels
4-wheel disc brakes
2006 GTO seats
Classic Auto Air
American Auto Wire System
Dynamat, Lizard Skin, and other spray and blanket sound/thermal protection
Alpine head, Pioneer 4 channel amp and Rockford Fosgate sub amp
Rockford Fosgate 7-speaker system, rear deck mounted 10” Rockford Fosgate subwoofer
Trunk mounted batteries

I'll enter my work in progress. Just delete if it doesn't meet the criteria or intent.

I'm sure most have seen my marathon build thread. SS 350 rescued 2 miles from home off eBay. Every panel replaced except cowl grille and front valence. Lots and lots of help from TC members. Planning on keeping it original save LS engine and T56. The original block was long gone, original 12 bolt rebuilt and under car, Muncie M20 in storage for safe keeping.

Pictures of how far it was torn down and current.

67 2bbl 327 4spd original top and interior including carpet. OO repainted it in 69. I added 67-68 disc brakes and PS. It was ordered from Spain by a 27 year old military guy. I bought it from him when I was 27 for 4900 bucks.
