This is a amt 70 1/2 camaro. I painted it champange gold wit clear red over it the cleared . The wheels are pegasus sleeve's with a insert from another kit i had rims left over there painted light gun metal. The interior is flat white with black/silver accents. I swapped the motor to a toyota supra 2jz gte with a big single turbo. i scratch built the turbo/manifold from solder. i mad a intercooler and ran the piping from the turbo to the i.c to the intake manifold. I also made a oil catch can and ran braided line to it from the valve cover.

Hope you like it . Let me know what you think.

I know the motor is not everyones cup of tea but it is a swap that has been done in camaro's and i wanted to build a model with the swap

Wow, now that's something you don't see every day. I think you did a great job. Paint, design, detail it all looks real nice.

SHINY :) :) :) RULES! But a Toyota engine in a Chevy? Very different. Beware of feedback from the purists.

Very nice, I love it. Everything is always better with a Toyota engine in it. :D I think a 1:1 car like this would be killer. I am going to do a similar model but with a Superbird instead.

Chris this looks absolutely fabulous. Another awesome build. Can you tell me if the aluminum wheel sleeves from Pegasus are the 19 inch or 23 inch? Really love how this turned out! I'm saving these picture for sure.

I'm one of those purists :lol: However, you did an amazing job. That is one very nice camaro and even though I really don't like the engine you chose to put in it, you did an excellent job with the detailing. Nice build!

Very cool. Great paint. I love the engine too - nice details and fit.

I don't know why people have qualms about cross-brand engine swaps. Why not put a powerful, cool looking engine in a cool looking car? Forget where it comes from, judge it based on looks and performance. Well, performance is kind of hard for a model, but perceived performance, I guess.

I am by no means a purist, in fact every car I've owned I had to modify in some way. I love the uniqueness of this build. Ain't that the whole point of being in this hobby? I mean push the limits and see what kind of new and creative things we can dream up. i personally love it and wish I could see it in real life!

I like it a lot. The details are great, the grill, gauges, etc., are well done!

nice job on the conversion and the details are fantastic! Clean execution and definitely different and that ain't all bad!

for those that might get upset over the Toyota motor in a Chebby, I ask if all of your '32 Fords have blue oval power????

Thanks for sharing!
