    To mod or not- 69 Camaro

    Hey guys, I have a really nice 69 Camaro with a 468 Big block. She makes 405 rwhp and 440 rwtq.
    I bought this car about a year ago and I love it. It's a head turner and a lot of fun to drive. It's also really reliable thus far.
    I have been going back and forth on whether to do a sick custom TT setup on it here in the shop (keeping it carb'd), or keeping it how it is and just do small things here and there.
    So what do you guys think? Mod or not?
    Here's a small vid of the car going down the track with shitty street tires.

    12.4 @ 114 is pretty stout... Do you DD this car? If so, Do you plan on keeping it as a DD?

    Turbos on a big block are hands down extremely hot. I plan to do that to a 500 stroker once I get the money for it all so you absolutely HAVE to charge it. Why stick to a carb though? You damn chevy guys have all the aftermarket goodies and slapping a fuel injection system on there wouldn't be too difficult, not to mention more consistent than a carb setup...then again, you know way more ish than me I just like to hear different sides
    60% of the time, my car works every time.

    You are proposing to build a beast that would out-run Ray's car.

    Something to think about.

    Idiots, simply by being idiots, seem capable of achieving randomly bad things that are beyond the imaginings of sensible people.

    As long as you dont care about the collectability of it I would definitely mod the piss out of it. Since it has a 468, that might not be an issue anyway.

    I DD it, but I also have my murano for the colder/saltier months. DD'ing will depend on whether or not it still drives nice when all is said and done.

    I love the simplicity of a carb setup. No sensors or bullshit wiring to get in the way. Obviously this thing is a gas guzzler and EFI will help a lot, but I didn't buy this car for the gas mileage. haha

    I bought her to drive, not collect. Resale value of items don't cross my mind when it is somethings I want and plan to keep.
