Default 67 RS Camaro

Picked this up a few weeks ago. Wifeís dream car. She also has a 2010 2ss/rs. Camaro with 426 hp. Sad thing is the project truck is up for sale. Just donít have the space or time for 2 projects right now.

Too bad about the truck, but like Burgerman said, sometimes you just have to let stuff go. There will always be another! Interesting hood treatment on the 67.

Thanks. Yeah there will be another later. The hood is called a stinger hood. I think is was first on the corvettes or concept came from corvette hood. Not real sure but it was on the car when I got it. All steel hood though. It’s at a buddies house right now. Been replacing floor pans under rear seat, rear frame rails, trunk pan and leaf springs. Should be finished with that stuff in a few weekends.

Hood design was from the big block 66-67 Vette. Had to have the scoop to clear the air cleaner. You sure the scoop isn't fiberglass on a steel hood? I've never seen a steel scoop that style.

If you dump the 2010, you have space for another. (Just saying, I'd take the '67 over any "new" Camaro.)

The stinger hood is strangely unique. If it's steel, I'd think it's the work of a talented sheet metal man, which I'm not!

The guy said it was a new aftermarket hood. They are for sale through a lot of vendors now. They say they are all metal. They also sell an all fiberglass one. I’ll check this weekend.

The 2010 is my wife’s car. I have driven it a hand full of times. Only 1 time without her in it with me! Her car not our car lol!!! My wife’s first two cars were camaro’s. Before her mom passed, she told her to take the money she would be getting and do what makes her happy. We got the 2010 the first year they starting making them again. We paid over half of it off and she said she was going to pay the last bit off with some of the money her mom left her. So it was kind of like a gift from her mom. Keeps her moms sunglasses in there with her. So it’s not going anywhere.

The 67 is her dream car. I’m not really a camaro guy. Going to build it for her to be able to drive. I like them but I’m more of a chevelle guy. Had a 69 in my early years. After the camaro is done I’m finding a 66 chevelle to build for me with big HP.
