The Original Car

A mostly stock, nicely restored 1967 Camaro served as the basis of the project. Of course, any car that has been around for over 4 decades can rightfully be considered “rare”, it is hard to image a more “common” example of what a large percentage of classic car folks have sitting in their garage. That is what made this the perfect example for what is possible with the availability of off the shelf bolt-ons.
