In December 2015, Brian Lohnes discovered one distinctive eBay shock: a severely worn-out 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS that had been handled to a mid-1970s full-kill customizing job…although, you would inform that the years since had not been sort to the early F-body. There was no mistaking the white physique with the blue flame stripe, the green-to-gold low stripe, and the purple sail panels with spiderwebs, however the major coloration of the automobile was rust. There was numerous tin worm within the automobile and plenty of of you have been at greatest, cautious, if not in close to unison that it was time to place the Camaro out of it’s distress, which I personally didn’t agree with.

Someplace on this planet there must be at the very least one well-heeled dreamer who noticed visions of this automobile cruising down the street with neon indicators reflecting off of recent paint.

We simply hope that somebody has taken on the duty of beginning some type of restore to the shell. Think about this factor wanting the best way it does in present-day, however with recent flooring, in all probability a tube chassis as a result of there’s no means the subframes weren’t paper-thin, and the right motivation: a tunnel-rammed small block and an M-22 four-gear.
