Thanks for the kind comments. I had originally planned to make this a quick, shelf-build with bodywork mods, some interior work and no motor....was saving the blocks for other builds. I've decided to go ahead and drop one in this build, I'm not sure what kind yet. I'm kinda leaning towards blown. I hope to enter my first show in May. I was going with another project that is not started yet, but I think I'm going with this one now. This is no replica...by no means, but I'm enjoying how this is turning out.

 

Been doing chassis work this week.....replaced whole front end with '90s nascar thunderbird unit (glue bomb i picked up for free), brass/styrene pinned frt suspension components, added the batteries, parachute lever/cables. I should be able to finish front suspension and start some brake systems soon, then motor work and other detailing. I included a start and current shot. Thanks for looking!

Very nice job with the Camaro so far, especially I like what you did for the Headlights. The rear spoiler looks very nice too. And beautiful Chassis work!

That's turning out really nice, Jeff.  I, too, am glad to see you're going to finish this one out with an engine.  It's too cool not to! :)

Thanks for the kind comments, means a lot to me!

 

Been working on front brakes and piecing together the motor off and on this week. She's a beast...well, almost.

 

Brakes and motor have parts from a little bit of everywhere and some scratchbuilding, making the rear motor mount next to finish the initial fitting...then time for detailing. The front of this chassis will be full! Thanks for looking in.

Where did you get the wheels and tires for this build? I think they are really slick, no pun intended.

Don't you love it when simple builds get out of control?  :(
