Here's the story. My two friends and I have always wanted to build an old Camaro, but none of us have ever done any body work or welding, cutting etc. Myself and one of the others do have some (very little ) knowledge of cars in general and engines etc. We do have access to a shop with all tools necessary for engine work, body work, and painting. This thing needs almost everything. Most body panels that have rust are getting cheap enough in the right places to straight up replace. It has no engine or transmission, it was a 4-speed car though. Has a crappy 10-bolt rear with 2.73 gears. Has most interior, but it all needs to be redone. We all know this is a big undertaking, and will be a great experience to do all this. My question is, which way would you go, old school drivetrain(crate engine, th400 or 4 speed, etc. ), which will cost out the ass on its own, or Find a pull out of an LS1 and t56 6 speed(which I've thought of putting behind an old school engine anyways?
