Personally I would of stuck with the grand prix. 500+ grand prix is rare, a camaro not so much.

Definitely like watching everyone else being able to spend money on their cars so I will be watching the thread. Good luck.

Rare to see due to the Grand Prix being broken all the time the aftermarket sucks for them and every thing was special made for the build on my Grand Prix, I only drove it 300 miles this year due to being broke all the time, this should be a pretty easy build for me and a lot more reliable

RWD + Turbo 3800 = Giggity.

Cant wait to see what you do with it.

I am very enticed. I've always wondered why you 3800 leg humpers never modded any of the rwd platforms!

It's not going to be as bling as the Grand Prix more reliable get the job done kind of build, I'd like to put several thousand miles a year on this car and be able to enjoy it more with the family

You say that now, before you have decided it needs a roll cage.

April first only because I'm waiting till I get my tax return and bonus to buy the expensive parts trans, rear end, suspension, I picked the camaro due to ease of building one, James is the one that chose the off the wall wagon that no one makes parts for lol

I almost said that about subframe connectors, but did want the "no shit sherlock" responses.

Exactly! I could get behind a right wheel drive platform that doesn't look like a Grand Prix. I'm surprised there aren't more out there. There must be something that prevents guys from doing these builds.
