Day One

1971 Camaro purchased in June 2011.  Here is a brief description of the car that I purchased on day one.

  • Arrow straight PPG Black (2007) with many new panels
  • Nice Black interior with new dash and center console
  • 350 bored .030 over with Edelbrock cam, carb, intake and stainless headers
  • Tremec TKO 600 5-speed Transmission with 0.68 5th gear ratio
  • Stock 10 bolt rear end with freeway gears
  • American Racing Hopster Wheels (17×8 and 17×7) with Nitto tires
  • Stock disc/drum brakes
  • Wiring under the hood needs a lot of attention

Here are the photos from the moment it rolled off the truck to the time I washed it for the first time.

And here is what it looked like on day one after I got it washed and cleaned up a bit… what a difference!

Now, on to the gameplan :) …
