The quality of workmanship and attention to detail is amazing and very evident in the detailed photos below. Every light works inside and out, including the back-up lights and that annoying little factory buzzer to tell you your keys are in the ignition. The paint job and body work are incredible with the stripes under the clear and the fit and alignment of all of the body parts is amazing. And it's not just my opinion; the editors of Car Craft Magazine think so too and gave it 2 of their most prestigious awards. And not only is this one of the nicest Camaros anywhere, it was built to be driven! With freeway friendly gears and truly superior handling, this car is an incredible pleasure to drive. But even with 1200 miles since completion 2 years ago, just look at the condition it is in; it's like it was completed yesterday! A real testament to the love and care the owner/builder has given this car over that time.
1200 miles. Never raced, never out in rain, always covered and stored indoors.
