About this Current Vehicle:

Here is one of my all-time favorite vehicles, a true hugger orange SS convertible. I found this car back in 2005, in Tennessee. It was driver quality, had a weak paint job, and mostly stock type parts. It stayed that way for about 8 years, then I decided to strip the entire car down to bare metal. One thing led to another, and it became a full pro-touring restoration. After getting the car back from sheetmetal and paint, I built it myself.

Authentic code X55 SS-350 Camaro
Authentic code 72 Hugger Orange paint
DX1 hood stripe option
Factory front disk brakes

That's one great looking SS you have. 15 stars for your ride. Check out and rate my 69 RS project, after a 2 year resto, it is almost finished. Burnout

This car is absolutely amazing! Are you still planning on building the twin-turbo LS7 for it?
