    This a frame off restored 1968 Camaro. This was done over a time period of about 3 years of off and on work. It was definitely worth it. It now has brand new motors for the hide-away light system and no rust on it. Well i will shutup now lol and show the pics

    Just lower it a bit. Not much, but just a little bit. like an inch or something. The wheels will look so much better if you do that

    Yep, like he said just barely lower it and ditch that steering wheel.

    Also add some boost.

    rims are fine, also agree with others. a 1"-1.5" drop and you'd be set.

    looks very nice, 3 years definetly pay off.

    Looks fuckin' awesome! I really like the wheel design, but they do need to be a little smaller, unless you upgrade your brakes to something that will fill up that wheel.
