Posted · Report post

I'll be building this in memory of a friend of mine. When complete it will go into a case and be given to his wife.

Jacob passed away 10/21/12 at 28 years of age. He was a great friend and coworker and will be truly missed.

The kit:

Need to find some suitable wheels for it.

Thanks Bryan. I'm not able to help her out financially, so I figured I would build the car that he had always wanted.

I originally bought this one to do Pro Touring for a club build, but thought this would be more appropriate.

He didn't own that car, just a pic I found online. He always wanted a Camaro (any year) This is the only Camaro I have except a 2010, so I figured I'd build it in memeory of him.
