Well it's about time you posted something on this Marty.
I'm looking forward to seeing this come together.

Sweet project. I'm looking forward to watching it come together.

This takes me back. My 18th birthday/graduation present was a 70 Camaro that looked just like this (minus the rear spoiler, and in an ugly school bus shade of yellow)!

Holy crap Marty, you FINALLY started this darn build thread!!! This Camaro was a great choice, because it is pretty damn clean. NOTHING was rusted together on this car, I was amazed!!! It was a lot of fun helping out with the beginning of the disassembly of this project. I can't wait until you get to the point where all of the shiney stuff starts to goes on.

This is going to be one of my favorite builds, another 2nd Gen gets a new life!!! Carter's rendering is pretty sick too!!

Call me, I'm always available to help you out (as long as we can have lunch at that awesome Taco joint!!!)

(pssst, post some more pics)

2nd Chance Camaro - Finding the Right Camaro

Finding the Right Camaro
Posted: Jan 19, 2011 www.2ndchancecamaro.com

Looking back at old pictures is always fun. What is really cool is when you fast forward 18 years and some things
haven't changed. This is true for the 70 Camaro Ron from www.hoodpins.net was able to locate for me. I know in the
last pictures the car was cream in color and this picture it's blue. Shortly after Doug (2nd owner) brought the car home
he repainted it and swapped in a 383 Stroker motor. Here is a picture of the car after he repainted it looks pretty good.

picture from 1992



A quick call to Jam'e at Browns Auto Transport and the pick was scheduled.

Like I previous said some things never change. Eighteen years later and here is what the car looked like getting ready to get loaded on a trailer and make it way back to the Midwest. First thing I thought of when I saw this picture was I really need to go rent the movie "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" again. Hey, it's a cult classic ....



48 Hours later and the great people from Browns Auto Transport showed up at my work to deliver the car. The drivers first comment to me was, "man is the floor in this car solid."



Not much has changed under this car from the day it was delivered and that was exactly what I was looking for. It does however
have a really nice 3" dual Exhaust. Anyone need a complete dual exhaust & headers for a small block 2nd gen.



Brought the car home - Opps forget to tell the wife. Remember it's easier to ask for forgiveness then permission.



Looks like I have to pick which one I am going to work on first. One option would be sell Ron the Green one and I build the blue one with Kenny. Should be fun and Interesting.



So what are the build plans -- you ask. What is it going to look like when it's complete? You are going to have to watch this
build closely and you will find out. At least you can tell that it will have Billet Specialties wheels on it.

Here is the last and final rendering that Carter from Carter Hickman Design did for me & Kenny.



I can tell you this car is going to have the new Ride Tech Coil Over Suspension on it and it's pretty awesome.
