You make ask yourself why so many parts were replaced, when I re-did the car I wanted to make sure it would out last myself and I am so analwhen it comes to things like that I wanted to make sure I can get in the car and drive it to where ever I felt like driving it to. I think nothing of getting in it and driving 500 miles to go to a Camaro National event and know I will get there problem free and it gets almost 20 miles per gallon ton the highway to boot. Just as a note, the last two Camaro National's I went to my car took First in Class, Scoring a 197 outof a possble 200 and was awarded Best Camaro by Chevy's Peter Kosak, Line Director for the Chevy Camaro.
