    This followed us home all the way from Dallas


    I'm pretty sure we're keeping it.

    Been looking for an early second gen for a while now, finally found something to start with. '72 RS Camaro, got it July 12th, just got it inspected yesterday.

    Plans, I would like to go pro-touring with it, LS-based and 6-speed manual. I've thought and thought about it, I was initially going to do suspension (back, then front) then change the engine/trans, but the 350 that is in there right now is so gutless that I think I'll do the engine/trans first, then suspension.
    I've started looking for a wrecked 2010/2011 Camaro SS in hopes that I would use engine, trans, seats, gauges, and possibly (depending on if it can be done or not) the IRS. If anyone sees a low-ish mile one, let me know.

    No. It's a V8, the RS package is mostly known for the "split bumper", and is the only one that came with it. It looks like so:

    This one is not a real "split bumper" but a converted one, and you can tell by the turning lights:

    The one above originally came with a full bumper, like so:

    Thanks guys! I'll post some pics here soon-ish, I washed it yesterday, so I'll probably take some today or tomorrow.

    Paint on it is decent, definitely not show car quality and some panel alignment a bit *ahem*, amateur hour, but the car is super solid, 0 rust, great driver quality paint, so I can enjoy it while I work on it.
    Front suspension is completely rebuilt already, and I have all the parts on order for a rear suspension refresh.
