yeah ,it's kind of in your face car. I think the blower is a little out of hand. But still adds to the overall "balls" of the car.

I was wondering the same thing. I originally was searching to find out when chevy changed the front end on the camaro, I am thinking 1974. but anyways, I couldn't find anything on the hp. I just really felt the looks of the car,

This one is not for sale, but I have seen 1973 camaros not worked up as much as this one for around $6000. Right now me and my pop are rebuilding a 79 camaro, but to be honest I am a fan of the older style front ends.

The horsepower can be estimated.

 

My dad has several chevelles that he has tuned and done the engine work on.

 

If thats a stock 454 which it probably isnt, its packed with like 450 horse. Most likely has a bigger cam and engine work done so im gonna estimate around 470. If he's running like 14 pounds of boost on that SC, I'd say he could easily be pushing 700 horse.

Do real men live with their parents and drive their mom's car around?

1975....they still made the RS and added a 2+2....in 1977 they changed the grille again and the rear taillights....The body stayed that way until 1981 when they changed the whole body style to the "I-Roc" version.

nice 455, you got some ill car knowledge. Yeah prior to 1977 the camaro had the perfect muscle car form to it. Once I get a steady income, I am willing to pay top dollar for a worked up early 70's camaro.

The "waffle" pattern in the grille was much smaller and compact with a less thick bumper and more slanted nose piece.....the rear taillights are different than the '74 but not as big and bulky as the ones' that grace the '77 through '81.---I was going to buy a 1978 Camaro Berlinetta with 54,000 original miles for a grand but passed it up...I don't know why....

 

I want to pick up a '75 through '81 Pontiac Trans-Am----preferably a '79----with a 455 4-Speed and stock condition....I don't care if it's considered a "butt-rocker" car.....that car(from the factory and now being 24 years old) will still eat up just about anything on the street-even today.They are very fun to drive.Good Luck Ethreadz.

yeah, my pop & I are in the process of repairing a 79 berlinetta. The car right now needs a great deal of work, but a great project car. I am tossed up between investing in an earlier camaro or throwing money into a model t hot rod kit.

I'm not sure what the emission laws are like in New York,but these days you can usually tear a car like that apart and do whatever you want to it...repairing a '79 Berlinletta?....that car,if I'm not mistaken came stock with a 305 or a 6.....350/327 cars are rare because they had started "down-sizing" cars starting that year and the previous year(for Chevrolet)-The Impala was completely changed in 1977..1976 being the last year you could get the bigger body style and the convertible option..1978 was the year the Monte Carlo went under an overhaul..with the other car companies soon following in suit.

I believe that the berlinetta originally was a 350 hp 400 cubic inch. after altering and building the engine up , I think it is pushing somewhere around 425 hp now.Once I find out from the old man what was added to it, I will let you know.

not into recent have I started learning about the mechanics of the muscle car. I have always been into them, but never knew shit about engine parts, and souping up hp. My pop has been schooling about them, so I am starting to get some barrings.

That's tight......My Pops and I started hanging out and checking junkyards for car parts and whatnot...it's kind of funny when my old man looks at cars and trucks there...it's brings him back to the "glory days"...but it cool to have a connection like that....another thing that is dope about scrapyards is that if you find one next to the freeway...you can hit up the sides of vans facing the freeway...hahaha...I've done that quite a few times...it's funny.

The Junkyard is such an adult playground. My father gets the same way, all nostalgic. I've got a local junkyard that I caught a tag on when I was around 16, its funny to see it ten yrs later. (I still havent progressed) ha ha
