      Well...I know there are folks who are sorry to see the project end, but after working on the car since 2002, I've taken the car just about as far as it can go and still be fully streetable as well as reliable and durable. Indeed, there might be a few more things I could do, like puting a T56 six-speed in it. but that's a lot of work, requires a different axle ratio and the cost-to-benefits ratio, but then...the cool factor be high.

      Another issue weighting my decision is that it's not like, if I sell the Camaro, I don't have any hot rods to drive.

      I've had many great times in that car including my all time favorite kill story which is located at: I, also, want to work on something different. I've owned the car since new and have used it as a daily driver up until about 11-months ago. much fun at my Camaro has been, after 16 years, It's time to move on.

      I hope to find a good home for the car and all the extras I have for it.
