About “The Camaro”

I bought this car when I was 16 years old as a daily driver to school and work. At that time it had a corvette 283 motor with a powerglide transmission. It has gone through many modifications since that day. Major modifications include the blown 454 motor that was dynoed in the car at 751 horses with 660 lbs of torque. It has a manual valve body 400 turbo transmission. A narrowed Dana 60 rear with 410 gears, a billet drive shaft. The interior has a 12 point cage with the whole interior including the cage covered in tweed. Custom paint and graphics along with a set of wheelie bars finish up the outside.
