Jeff traded a Pro Street El Camino for this car.>>>

Big-Block RS/SS Camaro
Who:
Jeff Bradley
Where: Indianapolis, IN
What: '67 Chevy Camaro RS/SS
Why: Jeff gave us a story that dated back to the late '70s, when the Car Craft Street Machine Nationals had an attendance cutoff number of 5,000 cars. Those days are back, and Jeff is reliving them with his Camaro. The car is a combination of a base-model body and all the trim from a rusted-out RS/SS car. Since it wasn't original, Jeff thought it would be OK to add a GM crate 454 in place of the 396 along with a 4L60E transmission. He also added the 18-inch American Racing Torq-Thrust II wheels and a set of Baer 13-inch brakes in the front and 12-inch brakes in the rear.
We Say: We think the days of cutting up '67 Camaros for Pro Street are over. Cut up a Fox Mustang instead.

Good separation.>>>

Truck Parts
Who:
Todd Cole
Where: Bixby, OK
What: '71 Chevy Camaro
Why: Todd says that his Camaro was assembled using parts from a farm truck including the 454. This pass was made using 89-octane fuel.
We Say: We're guessing 11s. Always send a timeslip.

Part T-Bird
Who:
Michael Peoples
Where: Ft. Bragg, NC
What: '66 Ford Mustang
Why: It has the standard 289 and C4 transmission, but it's controlled by a fuel-injection system from an '87 T-bird.
We Say: Should we run an article about how to build your own fuel-injection system?
