Thanks Bill, for your vote of confidence. Some days I need it more than others.

Today, however, we finally put the tires on the Camaro and took her for a little check out spin. She still has the open headers so she could be heard from blocks away...lol Ran her up to the race shop to put her on the lift. Started installing the rest of the Flowmaster Exhaust. Just a few more clamps and we will have her ready for the road. Glad to finally see this little dream turn into reality.

Thanks Randy. She is still a bit slow. Rear end has the original small gears and it's only a 3 speed transmission. Both will be replaced once I break them.
Also have to get a smaller pulley for the water pump, she managed to puke all over the shop when we got back. Temps are fine when moving, but she runs hot when idling, even with the fan on, so I'm guessing the water pump isn't spinning fast enough.

And the other car was already moving, I started video when we turned onto the road and we caught it.

I think you're on the wrong path here. What do you have for a fan and shroud on the radiator?
