Curt's 1969 Camaro Project
Finished this project Oct 2011.
Although we are still doing minor tweaks here and there (most recently, the fuel tank). Come back every so often to see what the latest changes are.
It was a fun (but very expensive) project (this is the second time around). All I can say is that there is no way anybody can make money restoring cars. No way! Unless, somehow, you make them for some rich guy.
This is a complete Pro-Touring rebuild. ZZ385 Fast Burn Turn-key Engine, FAST Fuel Injection, 5sp Tremec Transmission, Moser 12 bolt Rear-end, Complete Hotchkis Suspension (lowers the car 2"), Baer Disk Brakes all around, Steeroids Power Steering, Classic Wheels/Tires, Vintage Air Conditioning, Hydraulic clutch, Custom Interior, bad ass sound system, etc.
I'd like to thank Car Crafters for an awesome job on the car. Also, Jay at Bearnut Upholstery, Bryan at Innovative Audio, Ivan at Southwest Speed, Action Alignment (exhaust), the folks at Hotchkis, and of course, Rick's Camaro and Camaro Central (for all of the expensive parts).
Here are the some of parts that went in (more listed in later postings):
