Thanks and yeah I wish blue houndstooth would have been offered. I think it would have sold more than the yellow that the Camaro got.

Just saw this, very nice indeed!

I wish I had a twin too. I would then get a period correct trailer and put the Camaro on it, maybe slap some magnet type racing stickers on it and go to a car show like that. I am sure it would attract a lot of attention.

I have thought about doing something like that because I have thought of doing a mild day two look to the Camaro with some easy to remove bolt ons. Then just do a two car display at a indoor show with a tow bar and tools like in the pits.

Well you are 90% there if you decide to go for it.

Been doing a little work to the C10. Got the letters in the tailgate decaled in white. I also now have a 68 327 block that I am going to build for the truck. After driving it for a bit, the 350 is just not doing it anymore. So gonna built a decent little 327 to swap in and will make the twinning ever better with both then have 327's

Been doing some upgrades to the C10 to get ready for the spring and summer as the plan is to do some road trips in it this year and be able to take both 68s to some shows together.

Swapped rear ends out for a gear change, ended up snagging another rear end that was rebuilt with the gears cheaper than it would have been to rebuild my rear end in the truck.



While swapping rear ends, decided to drop the tail a little bit more.



Now working on the nose as I am swapping to power disc brakes with dropped spindles and adding a sway bar to the front.

Well after quite a few issues, got the truck back on the ground now with power disc brakes. Still a few bugs to work out and planning on its first road trip at the end of April.
