Not yet. Waiting for some more stuff before I take the front end off.

It's been a busy week for the Camaro. New Street Slayer twin disk carbon clutch went in Wednesday and I finished installing my NightOwl lights today. Have to learn how to make them do cool stuff so I can post a video.

I have the aftermarket shifter so I don't know if the factory Hurst uses a bolt on arm like the aftermarket one or not. My original was the mushy standard stock one.

I went 1/2 mile racing this weekend. This was my best run. Not to bad for an NA car.

It's hard to believe it's been 4 years since I got my Camaro. I've always claimed that this car would be sold at the estate sale when I'm gone, but it seems that time has come a bit earlier than I planned.

Over the last year or so it's been getting progressively harder to drive the car because my left leg and a clutch pedal just don't get along so well anymore. As much as I hate to admit it, I need a car with an automatic.

I couldn't talk the wife into a C7 Z06 so yesterday I ordered a Blue Velvet automatic ZL1. Now I have to sell the SS to make room.

Not completely since the stock ZL1 will be about the same RWHP I have now with a warranty I don't have anymore. Of course, it only took me about 6 months to wipe out the warranty on the SS.

CAI, headers and a line lock. I'll be ready to race and should be quicker assuming the driver doesn't mess up.
