    Nice looking start. I'd rather find a shell in great shape with no motor/tranny, and go LS1 + T56.

    You do realize that a shell and an LS1 and T56 you've already almost spent more than this entire car with a DSE/Minitub and cage. :rofl:

    27k is a hell of a deal.

    No. There's one sitting in a garage waiting for a home :mamoru::mamoru::mamoru:

    And this is Texas, that shit would be getting A/C

    They are really light cars, all things considered.

    If I had the money and the energy to finish it, I'd get it.

    No interior at all.

    $27k for that? Are you fucking kidding me? :rofl:

    I wouldn't pay any money for something that has been modified.

    Needs a lot of interior work, much of the pieces are missing, to re-do that correctly you're looking at another 2500 or so, Needs more brakes, and I'm sure suspension work, especially since I would track it. That car could probably be well finished for another 10K... not too bad at all really

    Agreed. Finish up the car and it might be worth something.
    As it is now, that car is a fucking eye sore.

    37k for a badass pro-touring camaro with nice ass paint, that cars a steal. First gen camaro interior is $1000....

    Run aftermarket seats of your choice.

    I think it's priced high, and is worth more like $20-22k, but it's certainly not an eyesore :o

    It is a pain to look at. You might have an idea about performance but for fucks sake, either learn some basic notion of design or hire somebody else to do the job for you.

    i disagree on a lot of levels. You won't buy much of a camaro for 20-22k...

    this things nice and doesn't need much at all to be a real high quality car.
