Make yer dad give you one of those, and you'll prob have the nicest car in you school.

As a Dad, I have a suggestion;
- My son always has a better shot at getting something by asking nicely and perhaps even contributing to the proposed purchase. I don't thing the "make yer dad give you one..." thing would work that well for him!

My dad's first car was a 69 z-28, maroon with white stripes. He spanked a lot of cudas and mustangs with it. He had the engine rebuilt and it had well over 500 horses. The guy that rebuilt it raced pro-stock or somethin with carl lingenfelter. Unfortunatly my dad sold it in '73 when he joined the marines and bought a marantz stereo and a leather jacket lol. That poor Z is probably in a junk yard somewhere.... . Shame...

I hate to say it about such a beautiful car but, ewww whats with the wheels? Totally doesnt suit the car. IMO, a nice set of Cragars look great on Camaro's.

Notice the plates? That car is in Europe, and those wheels are European custom wheels.

Personally I think they look better on there than Cragars (I don't like the old Cragar SS 2 piece wheels). But they don't look as good as, say, polished Torq Thrust wheels would on that car.

This would be my favorite way to set up a '69 Camaro:



Fikse FM5s on road racing suspension... mmmm

OR



Oversized Torq Thrusts on an DZ302 powered Z/28.. Yummy.

I like the look of the second one (the oversized torque thrusts). I think torque thrusts and cragars look nice on pretty much any old(er) car. IMO the torque thrust wheels on that second Camaro are a little to big, i'd rather have a little but more rubber. Beautiful cars though.
