    Thank you for the very clear and helpful pictures. Twisted_metal I wish it was a 4 speed Muncie. but it is TH400. My last car was 1970 SS 396 L-78 with M-21 Muncie. I forgot that the carpet guard goes over the top of the carpet.

    My car was originally Autumn Gold but it’s sort of a resto mod so I desided to change the color and add Z 28 stripes. Still kept the Rally Sport emblems on the fenders. No Z 28 badges. It’s still not fully assembled yet but I have put about 100 miles on it trying to settle in the new front springs so I can measure for new wheels this winter. Next trip it will probably roll the odometer past 60000 miles.

    Is a Z-28 or Regular Camaro RS. Twisted_metal mentioned the gas pedal which is mounted to the floor, which only Z-28 had. Nice looking Camaro. I do not think I have ever seen the color Autumn Gold on a Camaro. It probably was rare.

    I hope I do not offend any members who have this color, but I agree that you changed it to Mulsanne Blue. It could also be the paint was old and fading. Maybe in person it would look better. Thanks for the pictures.
    John.

    Wheels are Rocket Racing 15x7, tires are Coker Firestone Wide Oval Radials F 60/15 which equals a 245/60/15.

    Thanks Mr Nelson.
    So the same size on all 4 corners?
    No other changes to get that stance?

    Same size all 4 corners, new rear leaf's were de-arched 1 1/2", front are stock BB coils but with AC the extra weight lowers the front end.
