I built this after going to a local Goodguys event. I think you can see the inspiration. The bar is permentant now (I wasn't sure about it when I first looked at it, but now I like it), even though it is only in the first photo. Speaking of photos...

Russ, the rims are by Pegasus, and they are Torque Thrust II's.

That is a very nice looking Camaro... Jairus Like!!! :)

Actually, the rims are two pieces. The sleeves are old Pegasus low rider sleeves, but the center sections are from a toy called "Hubbs". They were aluminum wheels that came with rubber tires and changable "spinner" centers (they were flourecent and chromed). I had to paint mine. You will notice the big center cap that doesn't fit too well is covering a big hole. You were supposed to play with them like marbles. Here is a pic of what I am talking about. You will see these on some futur builds of mine. I lost the picture of the centers. I will look for them and post it if I find it again.

Oh, I forgot to mention, to get the different offset on the wheels, I placed the centers in from the outside on the fronts and from the inside for the rears.

Great stance, wheels, and my favorite Camaro factory stripes. Wouldn't change a thing.

Thanks for the comments.

Critter- Here is a link to Pegasus Hobbies, but again, these are not the wheels I used. I do not believe the game exists any more as it was on clearance (meaning .25 for two[2] packs containing four[4] wheels and about eight[8] centers!). The ones that are close are the "Chrome T's".

Hey is that the interior from the 57 Ford kit? That is a great looking build, I like the scrapes on the frame-looks realistic.

Yes, they are the seats from the 57. I sed one set here, and another in a Nova I hope to have done before too long. They fit with very little modification.
