    It looks like some idiot with a perfectly usable track car took it completely apart and got really, really, carried away with a bare metal rotisserie restoration with a LOT of modifications and then life (and nearly lack of) and other projects with higher priority got in the way and stopped progress.

    As soon as I finish fixing my house I'll get back to the '67 Camaro and then when I get the '67 project done so I can sell it, I'll finish the bird.

    As I mentioned 18 X 10s with 285 and 295 30's. Not going to post backspacing anywhere till I've had the car out on the street and tracks to test.

    Some might wonder why I went to narrower rear wheels & tires when the 17 X 11's with Yokohama 315's fit fine. I won a contest that included a set of Rushforth wheels and a set of Yokohama tires like the tires I'd run previously. The width limit of the Rushforths I was being given was 10" and I could get wider ones if I wanted to pay the difference. I had no money to spend so that was that. In addition, Yokohama did not make the tires I wanted in 18" sizes wider than 295. I needed to go up to 18" wheels because the 14" Baer brakes (also won in contest) won't fit in 17's.
