Wow, I am speechless at how amazing this build is. I am sorry for your loss but I know you you feel I lost my mother 3 years ago. I really like how you have dedicated the car to your dad he would be proud. It really is so amazing good job!

Thank you very much kjkjr27, i am sorry for your loss, losing a mother is tough. My father taught me respect, dedication, hard work, passion, cars and Chevrolet and i love him and miss him dearly but i find we can carry on his passion through ourselves!

Brother here is my point of view, who gives a damn if you win or lose, it is absolutely the friends you make, getting bombed, smashed and just plain having a blast! Me and my family travel to shows in a travel trailer and stay an extra night before shows and it is just plain fun as hell, shit life is too short and i am going to enjoy the shit out of it and honor my pops while doing it! I already have haters hating on me at car shows in the state and on Camaro5 and i could give a shit if they don't like it! I do it for my father not me. I love my father and still respect him for his values and all the things he taught me and how to be a man. One of the first things my pops taught me was not to be selfish and i try my best to be a gentlemen and have fun at the same time! 50 isn't young but life has been good and i am very thankful!

I def agree. The one show I went to was my first ever and I had a blast I didn't care that I didn't win anything it was an awesome experience. And I love working on my car even if some of the stuff I do is lame idc I enjoy it. Also everything I do to my car is what I like and it is for me not for anyonoe else. I have learned a lot about cars since owning my camaro and joining this site and I have done/ will be doing things I never thought I would have ever. I plan to do a couple 1/4 mile runs just to see how my car does and to try it out and I can't wait, don't care if my car runs terrible times I bet it will still be fun. The only I wish is that I had a big enough wallet to let me do everything I wanna do haha.

Tim, WoW! That is truly a unique way to keep your dad part of your build. Only you would have the guts to do something like that.

Just the satisfaction of knowing you did it by yourself, who gives 2 cents what others think, make it your own and that's all you need in this world including working on what ever you do in life! Enjoy it because some day we will all die and we surely won't have a U-Haul behind our Hearst!

Very cool idea. Unfornatley my Father passed away before Pumpkin came into being. I credit all my interest in cars and motorsports to him.

Now thats a different idea, Cant wait to see how they turn out. I have done other wheels like that but in black to hide the discoloration and dirt.The MS stock rims are black on the inside. May do it on mine also as I have a second set of rims and tires so no down time.

I think it's a great idea Rick, should look pretty damn cool, we will see just how dirty they get from Brake Dust?
