I can only dream about cars like this one... well, I'm glad for you though. Are you planning to upgrade the engine somehow?

Nope the engine will be bone stock factory setup I don't like it when people pimp up classic cars being original is better.

Same here; I had a 1973 Camaro and loved that car. I kept it all GM.
Except for the crummy AM radio. 8-track was the hot ticket in the mid to late seventies.  ;D   ::)
And I did put radial tires on it - bias ply tires kind of sucked.
And the seats; black crushed velvet looks so much nicer than factory blue houndstooth upholstery.

Not that I didn't like looking at modified cars at car shows and at the drag strip - I just didn't want one myself.

Wish I still had my Camaro, kept it 16 years. Had a dream about fixing it up, but that day never came.   :'(

Lame, I know.
