Default UPDATED! Joined the Flock (Lots of Pics)

Hey all I would like to introduce the newest member to my Fbody Team! Finally after owning 8+ camaros through the years I have found my way into a WS6 Transam. Low miles, Mint body, 6 speed, Leather, the works!










It's great to be part of the crew. Lots of plans for this puppy to come!
383 stroker LS being transplanted before summer I'll keep pics updated.

Thanks buddy good to hear from you! Well the lowdown is this car had sat in a pavement parking spot for 6 years! Motor fired up like new, it's 6 speed with 76000 miles on it (120,000 km) Leather is mint in it and everything power wise works. Not a spot of rust on it and actually cleaner than my fully restored black camaro which is really impressive. The car was not mechanically touched and is completely bone stock. Not going too crazy with this one but it's getting a 383 stroker like all my other cars haha. Hoping to pull around 480rwhp this time around the block. Just going to do my best to model this car off of the GM High Tech Magazine WS6. Working on a new ss red shell as well that's getting full tubs, through floor subframe connectors and roll cage. The works on that so this one I can just simmer down and cruise around in. I'll keep you posted for sure brother! Now that I have a bird like you we can cruise around if I'm ever up your way!

Congrats on the cool ride.

Update time for the Birds!

Got her all set up to get the old drivetrain out!


The car is even more mint underneath than I thought it was. Literally no rust whatsoever!!

Motor, Trans, Diff and pretty much everything underneath of the car gutted!


Went ahead and re-undercoated the underneath of the car. Looks just like it rolled off the factory line

New 410 Rear End Installed with Brand new Ground Effects Kit and a new set of 8 way adjustable KYB shocks.





New Poly Bump stops installed for the rear. Modified them a bit so they will clear with my plans to lower the car.




383 Stroker Short Block Back from the machine shop


CNC ported Stage 2 TEA 5.3 Heads with Yella Terra 1.7s paired with a Black Widow Cam that's going to help this puppy make some crazy power this year!
Too excited



More to come soon guys
Got some more goodies to go on so stay tuned

-97camaroguy

Bonus: I rebuilt my t56

Bonusx2: My Corvette Brakes clear the WS6 Rims!!!! WOOO

Update for you guys!

Everything torqued down and double checked.





Hope you guys like the colour! I think it will compliment the red engine bay nicely.



Better shot in the light.


All the accessories and add-ons will be silver.


Stay tuned and subscribe people!
