    I recently acquired my mother-in-law's 1976 Camaro RS that had always been garage kept it's whole life. It has been sitting in her garage many years with out being cranked or driven. It has a 350 with Turbo 350 tranny. It needs minor interior work. I've recently had a new battery installed and new brakes. I currently have a new aluminum (Champion 4 tube) radiator being shipped from NPD. This will be a 3 or 4 year project as I plan on dropping in a GM ZZ383 w/700r-4 and changing the rearend gears to 3.42 or 3.73. I don't plan to ever sell it. So I'm not worried about keeping all the numbers maching. Right now my son is almost 2 years old. So this will be a street car for him and I to ride around town in as he grows up.

    I snapped this picture with my cellphone right before I had it transported from my mother-in-law's house to the mechanic shop to get it running to fix the minor issues that I listed above.

    I didn't know the second gen Camaros had the Big Bumper nickname. This is my first muscle car.
