Here's a video...finally of our maiden voyage in the 1980 Camaro I have been rebuilding. We had just finished installing the Flowmaster Outlaw ll exhaust, Still has a bit more tweaking to do but she is finally coming along. Gotta replace the power steering pump before I drive her.

I guess I'm happy, except that you used the 1982 camcorder to tape it :P I know, never happy. Congrats on getting it going though, exhaust day was always stressful, not knowing how it would sound!

That was my poor iphone 5s. Looks great on my phone just doesn't enlarge well...apparently. We still need to iron out a few things, like she needs a power steering pump/gear and apparently a smaller water pump pulley, ran quite hot when idling.

Well, we have a M-21 Muncie 4 speed but will likely go with the T-5 once he finds a shifter for it.

The shifters are right next to the fuel filters at walmart.

Seriously? He needs the whole shifter assembly as it attaches to the transmission...not just the knob.
I figured they would be hard to find.
