The car belongs to my nephew. He sends me pictures as he moves along with the work and I thought I'd share. It appears to be a T-top. He says the outside is perfect with absolutely no body damage but no pictures yet. The object of the exercise is to fix it up and sell it to get money to complete the frame-off restoration he's doing on a 1970 Camaro. Maybe I can make it out to his place over the weekend and take some pictures myself.

He's also sent me some pictures of a 1929 Chevy pickup he's working on that's all original.

Interior sure looks nice, if he does that nice of work on the outside it should be easy to sell, also like his taste in cars, 29 Chevy, 70 Camaro, Trans-Am....hard to argue too much with that list.

Late '70s-early '80s I'm guessing. 77-81?

Looks great. :)

I guess it's possible that "best" could mean "garbage" in some foreign language. Somewhere. Probably Zimbabwe.

Not really- watch any drag racing show on TV or go to the strip on a Friday night, and you always hear the same thing:

"Mustang with a Chevy small block"

"Mustang with a Chevy small block"

"Sentra with a Chevy small block"

"Mustang with a Chevy small block"

"Pacer with a Chevy small block"

Haha, pretty much. Course, the Chevy big block is even better

^I don't know about that, the 302ci in the '69 Z/28 was one hell of an engine. 11:1 compression, crap-load of cam, 5 Liters= heaven.
Back when my dad had his Z/28 it would dyno at 558hp. :eek:

Of course my dad's Z/28 wasn't stock....... but the factory rating on the 302 of 290hp was underrated by a pretty good amount. My dad's car also had the chambered pipe exhaust, which was one of the most unrestricted (and best sounding) Chevy exhausts ever.

For sure, technology for rating power wasn't very good back in those days. That car sounds badass!

Actually they've been underrating or detuning the power of the Camaro for years. They don't want the Camaro to ever have as much power as the Corvette. Even if the difference in power is just on paper.

A small block will win a drag race over a comparable big block anyday. There is just so much more mass to get moving in a big block. However, a big block will usually take the small block once you get up to speed, or if you decide to pull a trailer.
