Alignment question

A couple of my buddies were over today to see how things were progressing on my V8 Squareback project. One brought up a good question regarding alignment, so I thought I would throw it out on the forum. How do you figure what to set the camber at? See. Pretty easy question,right?

Camber for a street car should be zero or slightly negative. More negative camber = better handling, but at the expense of increased tire heat, wear, and rolling resistance.
