      Dorothy, my 1969 Camaro build

      I bought this car from the original owners son. The woman had bought it new in San Luis Obispo, California, which it stayed for much of its life. She moved to Washington for a few years, but returned to SLO. Her name was Dorothy, so thatís where the name of my car comes from. When I purchased the car, I was given an enormous stack of receipts and information on the car. Pretty cool to me to see the history on paper. The dealership painted the car fathom green because she wanted that color on a car with an automatic, and the Z-28 parked next to it was FG and had a 4 speed. Lol. They definitely donít give that sort of service these days if you want something specific. Anyways, here are some photos of the progress...Name:  F8AEED92-E768-4CD8-A619-CA31995DAB92.jpeg

      Had to get a picture with my yellow 69 just before I sold it... had that car for almost 30 years and never drove it... oh well, I’m making up for it with the “new” 69 ��

      Took home a plaque from a race/show that I attended. I pulled up to park and the power steering hose blew, spraying the header and actually started on fire. You can see the fire retardant on the ground... anyway, I left the car there and the judges assumed that I was in the show. Lol.



      Quick tip here, don’t do a big smoky burnout leaving a car show, right in front of the cops, they don’t see the humor in it apparently ��*♂️ I honestly didn’t see him. Haha

      Great car with a really cool history! Care to share some pictures of the modifications in the front perches for the mini-tubs and leaf springs? Did you go with the DSE kit?

      Love that you kept everything else original. Still amazing how dramatic wheels/tires and stance changes the entire look of these cars. Great work!

      i didnít have to modify the front perches at all, as there is more than enough ďadjustmentĒ by simply loosening the bolts and retightening them after the spring is in the desired location.
      Yes, I used DSE for everything in the rear. 👍
