    Beautiful job on this '68, I'm not a vintage expert but I knew it was a '68 on first glance. I was in my early teens when the model came out, man, some models really made an impression on us Sixties kids. Tim, your taste is impeccable,your eyes - our hearts! Thanks for sharing...

    Its funny that Jay mentioned rattling windows. I bought a 70 gto in 1987, it needed a new window actuator. When I took the door apart I found over 50 paper match books in the door. I can only guess they were wedged between the door and glass to stop it rattling and then fell in.

We have pictures of the car but man, I wish that car would have been passed down to me. It was literally the the iconic 67 vette 427 youd drive/ buy in racing games. Red, 427 tri power with a stinger hood.. 1 of 12.. super rare car he bought from a GM executive and f'in totaled it.

    Watching this brings back great memories for me. I was in my early 20s but a fixer upper a 68 firebird. Trump out it was a true ramair car .i had to body work in school and that how I was making my living. I didn't get to enjoy it for long though but I sure loved the time while it lasted. See I found out that my youngest son had cerebral palsy and my life changed. I need something more dependable to get him the help he would need. I always thought someday I'd be able to build another one like it. Now I'm in my early 50s and not in best health but watching your videos always brings a smile to my face! My wife and I have injoyed 32 years and some great times were in that old 68 .keep doing what you do and I'll keep watching with a smile. THANKS!

    The COPO Camaro that I worked on, had a 427 with aluminum heads. An m-21 Rock Crusher manual transmission. I don't quite remember if it had a 373 or 355 ring gear. But I know it wasn't a for 11. And aluminum rims from the factory. And that car failed to sell, with the reserve of $270,000. The exact same color is that one. That one was owned by Chuck Honeycutt, who also raced on Woodward... With John DeLorean. I have a little secret... I know where the DeLorean dyes are at. And I know who put them where they now reside. And I'll give you a little hint... They ain't nowhere near Texas. Not even close. Anything more than that... And it'll cost you a million bucks.
