About “The NMC Machine”

This is my '69 Camaro S/P bracket car. It has a sbc and it runs consistant 6.50's in the 1/8th & 10.30's in the 1/4. I gave it the Baldwin Phase III paint job last winter. The paint scheme/decals pay tribute to quite a few very popular first gen. Camaro's. Don't forget to check out the video!
