I am not looking to do Pro-Street or Pro-Stock or Drag the car. The Pro-Touring build I am looking to do is modern amenities on the inside (power windows, power locks, power steering, A/C, new interior, etc), modern amenities on the drivetrain (new SRG or RS chassis/frame, coilovers, 4-wheel disc brakes, IFS, wheels/tires, etc), modern amenities on the power train (LS376/525HP Connect & Cruise Crate, T56 6-speed MT, etc) and custom paint. Figuring an $80K build once I am done.
My plan with the Pro-Touring car I build is SEMA, major/local car shows, possible road course/track, Power Tour, Drive anywhere, etc. Not interested in quarter miles and track days would just be for my enjoyment not necessarily to win anything. I have a 2015 Camaro 1LE with extra suspension work and twin turbos so any of the crazy race/speed stuff will come from that car.
So I guess the question again now that my intent is hopefully more understood - 348 VS LS3 and with this clean car or another car? I mean I paid $14K for this car as it sits so I am by no means in it too deep. There are three options I have: (1) Sell it as is for what maybe $20-$25K? (2) Restore it to original and have $40K in it for what maybe $40K-$50K, or (3) Pro-Touring build and have $80K in it for unknown value. Although, I am not building a car to sell unless the number is too good to pass up as every car has "A" number.
