It looks like they used the former tailpipe mounting points(?) as the new rear shackle mounting points, and added some holes to the floor pan for the front shackles and the trailing arms up front.

Those High Roller kits look neat...I remember seeing them at KMart as a kid, but never had one.

Because you spent your last $6.00 on that number plate for your Huffy BMX bike? Yeah, me too. :D

I probably spent the $6.00 on a Monogram GTO or other muscle car kit back then.. :)

I think that is a better picture of the Chevelle than I can do with my Built.
Chassis frame is the stock piece. just additional mounting points for the High-Roller suspension.
Notice those parts are silver, and that if they had included stock tires, the kit would have been a full 2n1
I did replace the side pipes on both the Chevelle & Camaro with Stock system.
(Scratch-Built on the Camaro!!){Cut from the stock rear axle on the Chevelle}

I have the Camaro. Had it since I was a kid. It's one of a handful that somehow survived intact the longest. However, "intact" is subjective. I recently rebuilt it, and had to work around some damage & missing taillamps. I don't know what I was doing as a kid, but I couldn't get the turbos on properly, So I had to convert it to a N/A. And I know the mudspray doesnt match the wheels, gonna go back and clean up the mud...

Naw, you can find them for much less than that, as they usually sell for $35-75 in unbuilt condition. Don't let someone's asking price be your guide. Do a "Completed items" search on eBay and you'll see what they actually sold for.

I came across these the other night looking for a camaro. They look like some fun kits, you guys did some great work building them.

Would anyone happen to have photos of the camaro decals? If anyone has some extra decals laying around please PM me, thanks.
