Restoration of a 1971 Camaro

I have had this car for almost thirty years, and have been able to slowly work on the car, but it has taken a back seat to my family. I have worked on it from time to time with my kids, but they are getting older now and  I am hoping to have it licensed  for the road while my kids are young enough to enjoy it.

As it sits there are a lot of things that need to be purchased for the car in order for it to be ready for the road. The three areas on the car that require immediate attention are the exterior body, the exterior trim and the interior. Right now it needs a paint job and that will cost an estimated five to seven thousand dollars. It also needs exterior trim, molding, lights and glass, all of which can add up to more than one thousand five hundred dollars. The other big need for the car is the interior, the interior may very well exceed the cost of the paint job, the dash alone will end up costing over two thousand dollars, added on top of that is the console and headliner as well as the door panels and the carpet kit and upholstery.  None of these estimates take into account the small hardware that need to be purchased in order for the installation to be complete.

To have the support to finish my dream would not only mean the world to me, it would give me the ability to finish a dream that I have had since I was the same age as my kids are now. When my dream to finish this Camaro started, they did not include my wife and kids, I have always wanted to be able to go on road trips. Now I want to share this dream with my family. I want to be able to make these memories with my family, while they are young enough.
