the rear end was lifted to fit the 28" wheels an the front was lifted aswell and all custom front end parts were hand made to fit so it will sit high and clear the wheels for turning.

Not my taste in a build at all, but I suppose I'll still watch. I love the 3rd gen Camaros.

I'll be honest, I had my doubts. Until I started looking at your forum. That 64 Chevy is absolutely wicked. I have 66 1:1 that I have big plans for just not a big wallet.
