Seen these photos and got to thinking about trying to build a model of this car in honor of Bill Jenkins. Was a huge fan of his. Would anybody have any reference pics of what they are using for the engine in these new COPO Camaro's and any pics of the interior and rear suspension?

Dave is to have this at the US Nationals this weekend. This is a nice tribute the "Grump"

Wow. That is the local drag strip near my home town
The rock.
Interesting Fact. The people that own the rockingham dragway sold www.therock.com to the WWF for over a million dollars. They bought it from a jeweler in nyc for 10,000.

Here is a link to some of the original concept sketches.

Here is the interior.

I believe he has an engine shot on his FB page. I will take a look and let you know if that is where I saw it.
