Default Morgan/Woodfin GT Camaro

I invite my race buddies to follow along as we begin a new journey, a journey that will include a new super stocker and a new race shop.

The journey will primarily focus on the buildup of a 1982 Camaro GT package while including some updates about our new race shop.

Please check back often as we begin a new chapter of Team Woodfin Racing

First, two thumbs up to Class Racer "cars for sale" section. After closing my automotive shop and selling the Super 10 I began brainstorming about my next race buildup.

Some weeks of flopping around later I spotted an ad for the Camaro in the above photos.

Thank you to class racer, I found a winner! This Camaro is a rare find. It is a good, solid, rust free, all original body. Yet, the biggest plus, some talented person began this buildup about 12 years ago. The work is excellent, welding, fitment, detail all first class.

Most of the critical design work is completed and thus, puts me well ahead of the building time required.

As explained above, the majority of the frame and chassis work was completed about 12 years ago. For whatever reasons, the project stalled and was stored until a few weeks ago when I took possession.

The majority of the frame and suspension is Ed Quay parts and design. Although the design may not be the latest, I believe it to be solid, proven and expect it to deliver winning performance.

Because I have sold my automotive shop and am in the process of moving and rebuilding there will be some gap in the progress as I relocate.

Please check back from time to time for updates.

Some progress [althought minor] but progress. Front and rear bumper covers, front fenders, and hatch trim at the body and paint shop.

The new color will be "Ingot Silver metallic" It is a bright, shiny silver that will make a good canvas for logos and other appearance details.

Larry
The GT/HA index is 10.50. 10.35 is the stick index. I'll be following your project with interest. Good luck

Updates;

The new race shop project has never materialized. In order for it to happen, I need the equity from my former automotive repair shop. Sensors indicated it was sold, twice, but neither party could complete the deal. It may sell at some point but until that time we are making good use of the existing building.

Now the good news;

The SS GT Camaro is on the front burner. After a few minor items, it is ready for the body and paint shop. More updates and photos soon.

Paint is a big step, unfortunately it's a LONG step for most
