Default 71 Baldwin Motion Camaro

Howdy. New member to this board, but not new to the hobby. I've been collecting Pontiacs for 30 years. Back when I was in high school, I was driving a 70 SS/RS Camaro that I bought out of the classifieds for $400. Those were the days!

I purchased this BM car earlier this year and want to see what you all may know about its history. It came with quite a bit of paperwork as well as magazines from back in the day. Anyway, I don't really know much about these BM cars and would like to learn as much as I can.

Cheers,
Tim

John, Yes, this is the same car. I tried searching for past threads, but came up short. I purchased this car from RK.

Looks like in the thread you posted, the wheels were changed out in 2014 to the Ansen slots that are on it now. It definitely looks better this way!

Looks 1000 times better with this wheel and tire combo. Welcome to the site. I got to see this car in person at the previous owner's house in Idaho a couple of years ago and it looked great!

I'd love to here anyone's stories about this car as I learn more about its history.

Cheers...

I owned this car around 2001-2002? Don't recall exactly the time frame. Sold it when I bought my 69 BM Camaro. Loved the car, but back then couldn't keep both of them. Yes, it was a PA dentist who was the original owner and it came with the Ansen slots from Baldwin, but later wore Crager SS and then Ralley wheels. The Ansens are a huge improvement. Great car and good to hear it has found a new home.

Thanks for the post COPO. If you have any photos or documentation from when you had it, would you mind sharing them with me?

The car has been well cared for. The interior looks to be all original and in excellent condition. The engine compartment was cleaned up by a previous owner and the original Motion Performance sticker is still on the inner fender well.

it appears it WAS a Z28 when born (rear bumper guards and floor hinged gas pedal)

Curious on why they didn't start with a SS396 to do the conversion
