"The Dark Knight"     1978 Chevrolet Camaro

Introduction / Overview: This car started off as a plain 1978 Camaro with T-tops. I purchased it with full intent of doing a complete make-over to the car. Once my high-balance credit card and stable internet connection were established, I proceeded to fill the garage with every imaginable part that I thought I would need and all the parts I always wanted. Three years later, what you see is what I pulled out of the garage to scare the neighbors and disbelievers with. All of the work was performed by me with the exception of the paint & body work, leather stitching and exhaust fabricating.
