Wrenched and painted old cars since I was 14. Built mostly small-block mustang coupes and fastbacks. Owned a few vettes, a 1968 Corvette 327 convertible, 1994 convertible and a 1979 corvette. Now rebuilding a 1969 Camaro RS/SS that raced at Great Lakes Dragway, back in the day. I have always thought that a pro street 1969 Camaro is (one of) the defacto-standard musclecars. Most people are not used to the look and sound of a tubbed Camaro with wide rubber, narrowed rear, skinny funny car front rims and a loud, cammed BB mill, on the street. Bought it from a guy in Black River Falls, Wisconsin. It's a tubbed/narrowed back-half car with Mark Williams 12 bolt, 488 gears, spool, ladder bars, track locator, coilovers, cell, blue pump, 468 BB Chevy, PGlide with 8" converter and transbrake. Car was a complete roach, so everything had to be taken apart, fixed, cleaned, painted or thrown away. For an example, while removing the oldy/moldy headliner, a huge rats nest fell all over my head, complete with dead rats. Anyhow, the car needed alot of TLC but was nearly rust free except for the usual cowl/dash corrosion and lower front fenders. Started with bare firewall and new front subframe and have been scouting for parts for the last couple years. Body-wise, I need a set of door skins and a trunk lid to have everything squared away. Rear quarters had 60's style cut wheel-wells to fit slicks. I wanted a more stock look, so I'm going with sectioned rear quarters. Original color was Marina Blue but I have always been partial to Hugger orange. I really need Chip Foose's crew to show up at my garage to help me finish it.
