    I'm back!
    Took about 10 months and countless number of Camaros that I've looked at, spent a month in AZ looking at cars (working remotely). Came back to Illinois Friday and found this one a few miles from my home from a guy I'm sure I partied with when I was younger.
    It's a base 70 badged as a Z with a stock 350/350, 10 bolt. Body is pretty clean, restored a few years ago. It's a great driver quality body and paint. Looks to be a new painless harness, Vintage air and most of the interior. The RS nose is a one price unit, not sure who mfgs it but the fit is pretty good.
    Planning the same mods to this one as I did to the black 73 I had. The color is from a 2010 Camaro, imperial blue.
    Ordered all new springs and shocks today and will start planning an LS swap for the future.

    Super nice. Love that color. Almost black it's so dark.

    Looks really nice! I just completed an LS Swap and love it. The color looks like a factory color Midnight Metallic Blue.

    ANVIL Auto...Full carbon or fiberglass/carbon. I rather use a repop OE style personally.
