Well here it is...My 1977 Camaro. It is currently powered by a relatively stock 305. Soon, however, a 355 with Comp Cam 268XE, Performer Intake (maybe an RPM... Show more), rebuilt heads, and possibly a new Holley Carb. will be installed. I just installed a new Centerforce 2 and am waiting to install a new Holley electric fuel pump. Within the week, I plan to replace the worn out weather-stripping and non-functioning locks. The car also has a fully custom 2.5" true dual exhaust system. The previous owner outfitted it with a Super T10 4spd in place of the 3 speed auto. This also means I still have the highway gears in there.The car's body is relatively straight. I plan to install new rear quarters and a new rear valance prior to painting, and also replace any other panels I find to be caked with filler and iron out the many minor rust spots. The interior is basically shot. I have new seats that will be recovered and installed. I plan to redo the interior in black so everything will be changed. The current dash pad, doors, seats, etc. are VERY rough and the wiring is a mess. I cannot wait until this summer when I can work and fix some of the things that have been bothering me. Below is a picture of the bad rear valance and right rear quarter where someone tried to use sheet metal in place of the bottom half of the fender. The driver?s side has a huge area of filler, which for some reason is painted blaze orange. These will be fixed soon hopefully, but I am going to get the drive train and suspension worked out first. In the future, this car's drive train will get aftermarket heads, an RPM intake, 3.42 or 3.73 gears with a posi, along with new bushings and suspension pieces (where needed). The interior will be redone black with white accents. The exterior will be painted black with white strips. I don?t know when all of this will get done, but I will post new pics when I have them. Check back soon. P.S. Sorry for the crappy pics, they were made with a very old digital camera.Check out page 2 for new pics... Show Less
These are some pics taken at the VT Airport on April 17, 2004. They are of my camaro and my friend's 1968 Roadrunner. The Camaro:And the one decent area ...

I'll get some more pics up of the new stuff when I get time and a good camera. The rear has yet to make any noise and the motor started and was broken in smoothly, holding 75 psi on a stock pump during the cam break-in. It is a completely different car...Pics to be added as soon as possible... Show Less
As the end of October approached, I had a problem. The factory Hurst shifter, that was on the car when I bought it, had jammed itself in reverse. My father a... Show morend I decided to go ahead and buy a quality replacement. We purchased the Hurst Competition Plus. This seems to be a proven piece that installs easier and has an improved feel. Also, it has shifter stops which I should probably have.
Here are some comparison pics.

The old shifter from the top. Notice the metal jammed in by the prev. owner since this stick was for some reason not correct for the shifter.
Some other shots of the new piece. I think it looks great and I hope it feels half as good as I think it will. Although at this point, I just want to drive my car. I am having withdrawals. Show Less
