    Hello, I've been on and off of here for years now and haven't started my thread of my Camaro progress. I have had the car for 12 years. It is not my daily driver so it never sees weather and is garage kept. It's a 1980 Z28 Clone. It looks like a 78 Z clone to be more exact. Just missing the fender vents that I have and just need to put on. The car has a built 350. Edelbrock Aluminum heads, intake & cam, Holley 650 carb, March 2 serpentine system, IROC steering gear box, Summit ceramic coated headers with Flowmaster exhaust & H-pipe (I put side pipes on 5 years ago and took them off last week), Edelbrock IAS shocks, Addco anti-sway bars; 1 1/4" front and 7/8" back, PTFB sway bar brace, solid body mounts, (Soon LS1 rear disc brakes, PTFB comp suspension and SFC), Muncie M21 4 speed manual transmission, centerforce 2 clutch and pressure plate and 3:73 8.5" 10 bolt posi. 17x8" wheels on Hankook 235 fronts and 255 rears. I have done the interior, engine and trunk over the years as the pictures will show.

    Exterior through the years up to last week.

    Thanks everyone. The next items on the list are sub frame connectors, solid body mounts and front lowering springs. Looking at either hotchkis or global west.
