Sneak preview.

The camaro and the 69 Mustang I mentioned a few weeks ago, though you might be interested in seeing.
Hot Rod did a photo shoot of the Camaro last night. It was to dark for my camera but salvaged a couple.
Car is not totally done but close.
The preview of this car will be at Sema and than the rides show and December in Hot Rod.

What is unique about this car is it was built from scratch with a new steel body stamped out and everything from suspension to engine and interior is off the shelf.

So a guy can build a 69 HT or convert any way he wants and get as fancy as the budget will allow.

The company that is stamping out this body has plans for other styles also.
Yearone is going to offer in complete package or order packages as you get the money. They said the package book will be about 300 pages, such as interiors, engines etc.

If you look close at the 3rd picture in back you can see a new body in Crete.

Of course the car is all SPI with 3 coats of universal clear.

WAY cool Barry.

I hope this takes the SPI further for you as well.

Anyone ever figure out how these "completes" are going to be V.I.N. tagged?

I would guess as a street rod but I see it different.

Like finding a demolished Z28 body or a 396 and a rest of parts all there all you need is the body?

This car is in its 43rd day of build and needs interior finished, rest of trim put on and fluids.

Yes, I'm flying out Tuesday morning and coming back Sunday.
There are three shows I need to be at, Nace, Sema and a chemical show.

I am going to try to go Wed and Thurs. I have a buddy that has a booth there so I will be hanging around his booth. I will get in touch with you through here as we get a little closer to the end of October.

Yea, I figured that from you!

Its still being put together but it will make you proud,

Cobra engine and and the suspension is state of art.
That stang will be one expensive car when done.

Its just about down to dash, wiring and interior, finished buffing fenders and extensions and little odds and ends today.

Rusty, even as that car sets it brings tears to your eyes, I kid you not.

Looking good!

Looks great Barry! I just bought a gallon of SPI Universal clear per your suggestion on the phone. Can't wait to get to that point. I need to read more on what you recommend for buffing though after the clear dries and when to do it.

I sure wish I could find a way to get into SEMA, but I'm just a hobbyist. Maybe after I retire I'll get a business license and do something with cars. For now I have to finish the career I have...which has nothing to do with cars.

Keep up the awesome work! And thanks for all the free advice on here for us hobbyists.

Steve

No, this is a copy of Lesonal - Ford code (MM) "ultra blue metallic"
What you see is within a shade of the actual color.

Anyone have any "ins" at SEMA? I'd love 2 tickets. But not being in the aftermarket industry, I'm kind of stuck.
