  • Liz Miles' 1968 Chevrolet Camaro

    Hey guys!

    I wanted to share my pride and joy (one of them) with you! This is my '68 Camaro. I got it 10 years ago this July and have repaired, rebuilt, or replaced everything but the back and side glass. Recently I rebuilt my 350 with some new goodies inside and a 950 cfm Ultra HP on top. The car is setup for road racing and autocross, but really works well as a street car. This is one I'll NEVER sell!

      Thanks Ricky! She's my baby! I had to have her in storage the last month to work on my Mustang but she's home now. I missed her!
