Prequel to a Camaro Project

As I am currently driving a Formula, I don't have the Camaro I want to build right now, but I'm trying to figure out what it would take to build the car I want at, of course, the lowest possible price. The Navy doesn't pay me enough to be too ambitious. This is where I will assemble my thoughts until I decide to buy a Camaro to build. I am planning on going with the lowest possible bidder on the parts I want. Vendors are more than welcome to participate in this thread and even contribute their lower priced parts for consideration.

Any feedback or recommendations are always more than welcome. You guys always have good ideas. That's why I love this place.

2011 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS A6 VR
