Jade- My 1967 RS/SS Camaro
My baby's been done for a almost a year now, so I thought that I'd finally post some pictures up for everyone to take a gander at. The color scheme is Imperial Blue Metallic with Cyber Gray Metallic for the Bumble Bee Stripe.
The car is an original 396BB/TH400 car, but now she's being powered by a 468 Roller Motor w/ completely forged bottom end, Edelbrock Performer RPM aluminum heads and healthy roller cam provided by Comp Cam . Power is put to the ground by a Tremec TKO600 5-speed with the hydraulic clutch set up. Out back is 12-bolt housing a Eaton Posi and Moser 33-spline axles and a 4.10:1 gear ratio. Suspension updates include Heidts Tubular Upper & Lower Control Arms, QA-1 shocks, Heidts 2" Drop Spindles, Hotchkis Sway Bars, Hotchkis Rear Leaf Springs, and Hotchkis Front Coil Springs. Brakes are Wilwood Six Piston Calipers with Slotted and Drilled Rotors along with Wilwood Master Cylinder. Wheels are 18" Livewire's made by Jason Rushforth, who also made up a sketch of the car.
I built the car as a tribute to the brand new 5th Gen Camaro in hopes, with the Lords blessing, that I'll have a 5th Gen to match her. With literally 8 miles on the entire car and drive train, she managed the entire Power Tour last year and already registered for this year's Power Tour ending in Detroit.
