That Camaro has a lot of character. Like what I see so far!

I know these are not real "Motion" . I made them from real Ansen's though. We are going for a look, kind of an illusion, not accuracy. May or may not use. I will leave as found (grungy). Opinions accepted.

Looking good! Keep the pics coming. I had a chance to get a real set of Motion valve covers a few years ago, but was just a little too late. I still know where they are and if the chance ever comes along again I'll get them. I'd still like to know where the Vette went that these valve covers came off of.

Default Turned My Attention Away From Engine

Let the engine sit for a couple of days and turned my attention to the transmission. M20 (wide ratio). Did a "Hillbilly Rebuild" with degreaser and garden hose! Looks good to go. If there are problems, Ill pull it out and go through it or throw some other tranny I have in there. BB Camaro / Nova mavens will notice the factory BB specific shifter, shifter mount and correct oval adjusting nut and all correct fasteners. When I make a clone, the details are accurate! Oh, vintage NOS "roll control"too.
