It’s a little hard to believe that I’ve been working on a project for 21 years… BUT, that’s the reality! I bought this car back in 1996 and actually drove it to college for a little bit. I lost oil-pressure one night while doing some *ahem* spirited driving (which may or may not have involved a Mustang) and trashed the motor that came in the car, and so I decided that it was time to park it and do a full build, rather than try to work on it while I was driving it. The motor got yanked and sold off, and then the car sat for 10 years! Fast forward to 2006 and I was finally in a position to start on the car. The lasted for another year or so until it was parked yet again… fast forward again to today, and I’m FINALLY getting close!
I had been doing blog posts on the progress, but the posts have gotten so infrequent, and I’ve missed so much, that I just don’t feel like going backwards. I’ve included what I did write at the very bottom if you care to read, or you can check out the full build thread over at pro-touring.com for even more pictures and details. For this page, I’ve decided just to do a picture gallery of the build. The first picture to the right is where I started, and the red car has been my inspiration; Mark Stielow’s ‘Red Witch’ Camaro. Below you can see my current progress. Stay tuned!

As I mentioned above, I’m abandoning doing blog updates on the progress of the car. I’m just not consistent with it enough for it to make sense. However, here are the past posts for reference!
Well, 10 years (almost to the day), two college degrees, a house, and a wife later, and I'm finally starting on my 67 camaro project. Plans are for the full DSE treatment (I just ordered the stage 2 kit for the front this morning) front and rear. Some kind of fuel...read more
