The frankenstien is actually way nicer then the 73 Camaro. Since I would only be basically using the subframe and about 10 square feet of the body from the real 73 camaro when building a new race car especially if I were to go with a new roof and 1/4's it makes more sense to cut that one up. The race car project would have the firewall removed and relocated back to the base of the windsheild,all the inner structure cut out of the roof and 1/4's, ect. I would end up keeping the inner and outer rockers, front section of the door jams and A pilars from whatever car I use. In the back I would probably just weld a new roof skin to new 1/4's and a new filler panel and tail panel with nothing else inside them,just tabs hold them all to the roll bar. As far as identical rods,the irony is that back in the early 80's a previous owner had my car as a 10 second street race car and flat towed it behind an identical Firebird. When I bought the car it still had the tow tabs on it. The scary part is that when he owned my car,it was all steel even the hood,and still had the heavy front bumpr,had all the A/C stuff in it and the full stock interior along with an iron headed LS6 bigblock and th400. The car weighed 4100# and he was towing it with a Firebird.
