Project Bonemaro: A 1979 Camaro Build for Cheap – Part 1

Published in

Tony and Lucky began a new project called Bonemaro in Hot Rod Garage episode 37. The series will follow the guys as they build a decent Hot Rod as cheap as possible. The project starts with a 1979 Camaro they purchased for $800 and a 5.3 L iron-block LM7 from a 2002 Avalanche for $1,180. At the end of the video the Camaro is left without an exhaust and told to stay tuned. It is easy to assume the car will be getting a turbo system in the next episode.

I have included the full price list below which is seen at 25:56 in the video.
