    Looks good but I like the paint scheme on the 68 Penske Camaro better.
    The white just doesn’t pop out at you. IMO the white looks boring.

    There are some who buy cars unseen and only buy from the pictures. Some people can’t buy a house unless it has staged furniture in it. I can buy a house when it’s empty and visualize my furniture in it. I really don’t see the problem making a decision from photos. I guess you have it or you don’t.

    The 67-69 Penske Sunoco Camaro’s look bad ass. If I had the bucks, I would own one.

    For the white one does it look like the quarters are wider?

    Regarding the color I might experiment with something interesting that still looks vintage without being white. I agree, a little bland-ish.

    If my 74 z28 wasn’t complete I would have created a Foyt car.

    Read somewhere saying it had 4-wheel disc brakes. Probably a JL8 setup or at least the rear end?
