My old build thread i had to delete due to watermarked pics from a pic hosting site so I decided to start over

Well anyways this is my 72 Camaro ss that I've owned since 1999 . Slowly over the last few years I've been building it into a Street - Strip build

Here's a couple of pics of my Camaro from a local car show a couple years ago
