Since I did the same with the trucks, figured I'd follow suite with the cars. A few WIP.


Camaro, pro touringish style. getting the stance dialed in, checking body fitment etc.

Still not sure on wheels. Have a set of 18/20 resin super sport wheels on the way, along with 20 inch resin rallye's.

front on stands, new style Camaro wheels out back

Checking with the new Camaro wheels all around, not sure.

The 56 Chevy. using an Aoshima lexus chassis underneath it to allow it to lay body and have the suspension adjustable. Will have different wheels.

Much more to come.

thanks. Yeah most of the time i'd prefer to have the stance altered downwards, although i do have a silverado NBS truck that's a 4x4 version, which I'll be spraying black and putting up just a smidge to simulate a daily driver on 33 M/T's with 20's to mimic my 1:1 03 Sierra daily driver.

I have a challenger and a 300C that I'll need to make some headway on. Just stocked up on some tubing for exhaust with some mufflers and some other odds and ends as well.



Wheels in progress.

Well the Camaro would in a 1:1 situation contain something along the lines of what the company Air Ride Technologies out of Jasper Indiana does. They produce full on air suspension kits that allow pneumatically adjustable ride heights, but they are performance orientated. You'll find a lot of them at road courses and autocross events on the older iron. once of my favorite subjects besides rocker dragging trucks.

The 56 is more of a full on show piece that would air up to drive. Street cruiser and show car style.

Ive got a build thread in this section somewhere I need to update lol. The Camaro looks how. I like the wheels on it, but not on that particular build. Needs something sportier, imo.

Scott, I like the Camaro, and I am a fellow mini trucker. (At least, I take it Noma is for Sonoma and saw the Mini Truckin sticker.) I noticed you got Relaxed in your screen name. Are you in Relaxed Atmosphere?

I added the lip. Its the rings from a set of Aoshima wheels that I cut the front in half for the staggered look.

I absolutely love those wheels, def. rethinking my direction on the car wheel wise now that I've seen yours. Awesome build, I'll have to hunt that up!

Thanks! Always good to have another minitrucker on the same forum! And yup you hit the nail on the head. I'm in the kentucky chapter of ///RA, and actually if your in eastern ky, I'll have to ask or assume that you've hit heritage? Lee (or LMC) who puts it on is one of my closest friends.

Here's my sonoma, this was coming home from Heritage this year actually.

Cool S truck man. Yeah, I've been to Heritage quite a few times. This is the only forum I do now. Is Lee still running BTR? My truck is currently under the knife so, it may be while before it gets back there.

On topic, I think the modern Camaros look great on the build...big fan of those wheels.

Ahhh what a small world! Yeah I've cut my forum stuff back quite a bit, it's funny how so many interests (trucks, models, carpentry, etc) can take up so much time in their own right! Yep he sure is, the older version finally crashed for good and this newer one has been up now for at least a year I think. Would love to hear some details about your truck sometime!


Yeah, I'm thinking more and more on the modern camaro's or something with a serious lip.
