Well executed, but I'm not a fan.

They do it in Sweden, Norway, etc.... to get a lower import tax. A truck carries a much lower tax rate than a sports/GT car.

Bet it took two wrecked cars to make one GTS camino. Pretty cool save and fabrication appears well done. T

I wonder how well the Weisach rear end works with those double axles. Or did they do away with that during the fabrication?

I absolutely want one of those!
You guys keep your eyes peeled for one and let me know.
Not joking, look at my signature.

We've got this one at the shop. It's Rogers and I'm sure he would be willing to let it go for the right price. Needs damn near everything though. The plan has been to put one of the extra engines I've got, and the transmission out of my car in it. Who knows when that will happen though.

I definitely want to check it out. Need another project right now like I need a hole in my head.
May trek up there Friday if you're around. I'll give you a shout first.

I looked at this one awhile back as I have everything needed to build it. I eventually passed because Iím already overwhelmed with projects and in all reality it would have been several years before I even got to it.

I really like it though and I think the conversion was well executed. If this kind of thing floats your boat then it is an excellent starting point. I donít think you can go wrong with it. I still kick it around from time to time so it would be great if someone would buy it so I can forget about it.

So same. I've been pumped up about getting it back on the road but there is only one of me and a ton of cars that need me more than this one.
