Hey Ladies and Gentleman, just finished most of the restoration of my 1976 Camaro (wheels and tires are next), it was a gift from my dad after I got out of the Military. The forum looks great, and there is a wealth of knowledge here. Let me know what you think.

I do agree, they all look alike, but there is an edmunds article online, as well as several other sources the confirm Bumblebee was in fact a 1976. More pics up soon. Just got him tinted. Limo allround!! I know its not exacly legal but its not a daily driver, and being so close to the face of the sun here in AZ the cops here dont seem to mind it all that much. Thanks for the positve feedback guys.

well of course, wouldn't be very smart just to speed past any Texas cop. and it wouldn't look nearly as cool to the passers-by

Thanks for the postive feedback guys! Wheels are the next big purchase, as a matter of fact the only deveation I'm making from the movie car (on the exterior) will be 4 Cragar SS's(Fronts 14X7 Rears 15X8), as apposed to Eric Vaughn Real Wheels in the rear and Cragar SS's up front. The B&M rachet Shifter will probably go in this weekend along with some other interior touch ups.
