Here you go Rago. I know I've been promising this for a while, but I finally got the time to get it done. This was my mom's daily driver (my dad had a work truck) for years. I know this photo was taken in Tucson AZ, but I don't have any other details. I think that was my uncle's Camaro, so I'll assume it was in front of his house. If you're wondering why it looks like a monster truck, it's because my old man put big block springs in it. We towed a camping trailer, and he loved dirt roads...... Ground clearance. This thing has probably been on every dirt road in AZ.

I'll post some more oldies when I can.

Sure would have been nice to have this site 12 years ago when I first started working on it!!!! Never even met another G3 owner till I found this site.

That ain't a joke! I can't tell you how many times I needed a part on Black Sunshine (old 76) but no one could help out. Still get the whole "what kind of car is that?" & "There were Chevelles built after 72?". I thank Dan for starting this site, PHR for featuring our cars, guys like you for building excellent examples, & also Doc & Spiral for getting the ball rolling in the first place! Back in the late 90's their site was the ONLY place to get information about the post-72 Chevelles.

Also very grateful that the aftermarket has stepped up now that I'm building two more G3's. Drinking Party

Beer All the way around.

You did forget to thank Al Gore for inventing the internet though. Smile

You just caused me to get choked because I was laughing so hard. I guess the reason was because you took me by surprise with that. Your car is one of the best looking cars I have ever seen. JB

Yeah, that car is awesome!

Hard to believe it's the same, ride.

Good inspiration for me, seeing what can be done with a little hard work and patience.

There is a guy here in Rapid City that has a 75 with a stance like that and it looks great. I've talked to him but he has no intrest in our website as of yet.

I love old car pics like that, I got one of my dads camaro back in the 70s that I think it cool but I didnt want to post it on your build thread.

Your car has come a long way from where it was originally, its amazing that your family has held onto the car for so long.

Thanks Rago, I created the site for the users and my inspiration was from old maligoon aka limey. All the BS on CT he caused LOL
