Chevrolet Camaro Killer
About my car
In 1974 my grandfather traded in his 1964 Impala Plus $2000 in cash for this 1968 Camaro. He died in 1976 so my mother drove it for a few years until my stepfather got hit on the passenger fender and wheel in 1981. I was 15 at the time so they gave me the car to fix and drive when I got my license at 16.
I drove it for a year or two then put it in a friends garage. I got married worked on it a little, had kids worked on it even less until I built a garage on my property and put the car in there in 2014. That's when I went full balls to the wall and fully stripped the car down. I removed as much rust and scale as possible removed the rear frames and put on new ones repaired any damage to the Floors. I put in a stainless steel gas tank and gas lines, stainless steel brake lines, put the engine and transmission back in, rebuild the rear end with Posi traction and 3.73 gears. Sent it out for paint and body it is British racing green (which was the original color) with gold and silver pearl the flames are gold with three different shades of green and gold pearl for a total of 6 pearls.
I drove it for most of the summer of 2017, went to as many car shows as time would permit and actually won one.
(Many are rigged and disorganized.) it's definitely a one of a kind car and I get a lot of compliments on it.
