Dave E’s 1979 Camaro

Built From The Ground Up

Dave E’s 1979 Camaro

Dave has owned this 1979 Camaro since all the way back in 1992 and has completely rebuilt it from the ground up.

Although these projects seem to never be finished, he’s still pleased with the results. He currently has a 383 stroker powering the second generation Camaro, paired to a Tremec TKO 660 transmission with a 12 bolt rear end and 4.11 gears.

This Camaro is his pride and joy, and he can’t wait to finish the project so that he can show it off, especially for the paint job.
