Nice.. what color is it gonna be?

Two tone black and silver. I can't wait.

My first thought was, "My God that's beautiful!", my wife agrees.

Sweet, my looked almost as good but due to ripoff mechanics and a leaky master cylinder, it needs some touch up.

Here are more pictures of the project. The car has a 350 backed by a TKO500. Other goodies include: Baer Track/Touring system, Global West upper control arms, Hotchkis 2 drop springs, 1 1/8 sway bar, 1 drop leaf springs, 88 Iroc power steering box, Vintage A/C, and Intro Pentia wheels. I should have the wheels on this weekend so I will post more pictures later.

Now it looks shiny and smooth! = )

Like the two tone. Don't see that too often.

Thank you John! I actually used your web page to inspire me while I was doing the suspension tear down and rebuild.

That's exactly what I thought when I saw it. I love the Smokey Yunick Camaro. I have a 1/18 scale model sitting right beside my monitor. Definitely can't wait to see what Blinky's variation will look like though.
