I gotcha. Yeah, that's a tough situation. The great thing is that your car is amazing, you can be proud of everything that's been done to it, and it's safe to say that everyone knows it as well.

Yes i am thankfull that people appreciate it brother but it is just me i guess? In order for someone to truly appreciate it they have to know the reasoning behind it and a little about my father! To me this is the whole rhyme to the reason and it makes me smile that much bigger if i get the chance to tell anyone the reason! Me & my father weren't the closest when i got older but i respected him for himself and who he was, his passion for Chevrolet is who i am today so he lives in myself in a weird sort of way! lol

That's completely understandable and extremely commendable. That makes things so much more special, and what a phenomenal story.

We all have our reasons why we do what we do, and i believe what others do in life means a lot to them! I am just at a point in my life where i have a very keen understanding of how short life is and i want to honor my pops and enjoy it at the same time!! Who said life wasn't fun should be shot!! lol

I was cleaning some things and looking at the Camaro today and a weird thing came across my mind, in 1968 i won a bike in a Halloween Costume contest by placing second place. And i remember they were going to present the awards (bicycles) during the trophies presentation. Well my father won that night and while i was standing below the flag stand my father waved for me to come up while he was receiving his trophy, and i remember him telling everybody in the stands that night that this is my son & crew chief! Man i cannot even begin to tell you in words how much that meant and felt, i was grinning from ear to ear!

You have to swap the dash. Somebody did it in the cosmetic section. They can be found on ebay for cheap sometimes

No dash swap for me period, i might be able to have my seat guy make a custom piece for the dash that's glued on but would look like it was made to be there?

That woild be easier, the new dash vents are different which sucks because you can't put on the leather

i never liked the new ZL1 dash liner, cover the whole dash with suede leather it would look more classy and gives the feel of a true race car.
