Newest build. Traded my v8 s10 for it. Which I had roughly 2500 bucks in. And have a ton of stuff layin around for it. Only thing a have bought so far is a body lift and guage pod. cost 130 bucks. Trying to keep this one cheap as possible. Gonna throw 4.10s in it and drive it as is for now. The guy welded up the rear diffs so im trying to dig up carriers at the local junk yard. Gonna daily drive/ light wheelin with the family.

sounds like you will have fun zman i wish mine had a the supercharger or a turbo. i do have a few v8s in the garage they are 305s but i can get it bored to get a little more power. i just have to decide if i want to give up the fuel economy of the v6. i still have my truck that gets about 4 mpg. so i need to have something to drive around that wont kill me when i have to fill up.

Sweet ride nate... Sorry for the long absence... I had to sell all my toys a couple years ago to keep from losing my house.... Glad to be back on again... Love your camaro... I just got a 1998 firebird with a blown 3.8... traded labor for an engine swap for the car...  BUDGET BUILD RIGHT???


One of my favorite color schemes for camaros is the orange/black... great choice..


Thanks for posting and helping to keep this group alive.

Just watch out for suspension flex. If you go through any trails and you hard flex your springs, you could bind your tires against your fenders and rip them up.

i think im just going to go with a 36 inch tire and shave the front finders to save time and money it has 32s on it now so i think i will be happy with the 36s and it isn't much that has to be shaved off to make them fit
