Yep I saw that one. Would still be close to $600.00 by the time you added a strut kit and other hardware. I bought a strut kit instead if making one and still have less than $300.00 in it.

You do know, you can loose some weight by removing the weed wacker, leaf blower and cordless drill from the trunk.... :smt005 :smt005

Looks good Chris, now lets get some color on it!

Can I suggest...

Not doing a vinyl top.

but - painting the area the vinyl top would be a few shades darker???

Stepping up to a Camaro is too big of a step for Nova owners.......

They need to take baby steps and then once they are found to be worthy, then, just maybe they may be ready.

But testing shows that most Nova owners can handle the raw performance of such a great car like the Camaro.

Right Chris....LOL

My lip is bleeding right now from biting it so hard. This is just too easy. But I will do the right thing and slowly and quietly remove myself from fantasyland.

Don't worry, you'll find out soon enough when your wife tells you to get that red and yellow car out of her garage and she parks her Camaro in there.

I'll try to bite my lip but probably won't be able to because I'll be laughing at you too hard.... lmao2: lmao2: lmao2:
