Thats a sweet lookin car there Vic. Alway loved those 2nd gen Camaros.

 

Had me a 69 and an 80 Camaro. Gotta admit, i loved the 69 better, but it just got too expensive for me. I couldn't stand letting it sit and not putting any money into it. I spent more than i could afford.

 

Have fun cruisin with it.

Now I'm adding disc brakes to the rear--what a pain this is............having to make some brackets for the parking brake cables..After pulling the axles out,I'm going to replace the posi unit with an Auburn unit-much stronger....I guess when ading new stle stuff to older cars--this kind of things happen................I'm going to be adding the wireless key fobs for the door locks next and rewiring the power windows circuit using all relays to keep them from running slow....14 volts going to the motors.............. :D :D :D :D :D Here are a few pics.................. :P :P :D :D
