Mike E’s 1971 Camaro

Built From The Ground Up

Mike E’s 1971 Camaro

Mike had a lot of F-bodies in college, but he had to sell them for tuition. This 1971 Camaro popped up for sale online in April 2019 and he bought it the day after he went to look at it.

“Finally got my dream 30 years and two kids later.”


This 1971 Camaro is not original, as it has a 1994 LT1 paired to a 4L60 transmission, but he prefers the updated driver aspect of the car. He’s gone through the suspension, wiring, interior, and much accessory work under the hood as well. He wasn’t too keen on the vinyl top originally, but now loves it.

“Always wanted a split bumper even if not a true split bumper.”
