    Hi guys.

    I´ve been reading your forum for quite a long time, but I only just registered.

    In 2010, I swapped my old motocross bike for this rusted rolling chassis of a Camaro. The roof was dent and the windshield broken. The progress has been slow, since we´ve had 2 children and built a house at the same time, but finally it´s up and running!

    There is still much to do, but I had a target to get to drive it this winter and I hit my goal!

    I built dually wheels for the Camaro and put some ice racing tires on them and hit the track! :D

    And then for some driving!

    Here is a video from the day:

    If you don´t mind finnish language, here´s the build thread on our f-body forum: http://forum.f-bodyfinland.com/Yabbse/index.php?topic=51726.0

    Sadly, the older photos dont work anymore because the provider stopped hosting them, but I will update the older photos sometime. If you are interested I can summarize the build so far for you here in english also.

    Welcome! That is a pretty wicked ride! I remember having some fun with my dad's 71 Camaro in the school parking lot in the winter. Doing doughnuts and going over the ice and snow covered speed-bumps sideways as I fishtailed the car around! I'm surprised I didn't rip the tires off the wheels!
