I know my dad sold his 1st gen camaro when I was born to buy something more economical, so I'd like to pay him back by giving him one on his birthday. I don't know what year it was, but I saw pictures of it and it was black and had the square headlight cover things...I doubt that gives anybody an idea on what year it might have been. Considering I have time and a bunch of experience in a machine shop and welding, but nothing beyond maintainance in terms of engine work, how long would it take and what would it cost me? I'm talking ground up full restoration, but probably not all original stock/motor/interior etc. something like this maybe: What are my engine options? I'm guessing basically anything I want considering the size of engine bays back then.
