    1978 Camaro FS

    Trying to sell my 1978 Camaro...due to CA SMOG issues. Being in the military, I can't keep up with every state I'm going to be forced to move to.

    Interior is complete
    Hotchkis Springs and Shocks

    That sucks Rob. I know you are on here a lot and have been working on your car for awhile. I've read many of your posts. Good luck with the sale. If it doesn't sell and you end up parting it out I would definitely be interested in the LS to TKO Quicktime bell housing.

    $15k is a smoking deal for what is done to this car. It does suck starting over....

    Driver quality....I would say a solid 6. Washes and shines up nice. Gets lots of looks, but not "show car" paint by any means.

    I'm actually exploring that scenario now. Its helping that I keep getting off of work after it's dark. I have failed to take pictures for folks that are interested.

    Or you can buy a early second gen swap the front end on to yours and re work the quarter panels and around the window to mimic a early second gen and just swap the body tags will be much cheaper to buy a clean title 3k car put in 5k into bodywork to make it look like a early second gen and boom you have your original car with every part you've put into it
