RR of the Day: 1967 Chevy Camaro RS/SS

Kicking off Camaro Week for our RR of the Day feature's is Flickr member Kyler's 1967 Chevy Camaro RS/SS. Not only does this car exist in the upper echelon of Camaro annals, it also happened to be the subject of the very first piece of automotive journalism I ever penned, so it gets extra points from me for personal nostalgia. Though Kyler has performed many mods beneath the car's skin, the sheetmetal is nearly factory stock, as is the interior. This was a fantastic generation of Camaro design and Chevy was right on to use it as inspiration for the Bow Tie's pony car revival in 2009.

As we said, Kyler's made many mods to up the power and civility of this nearly 40 year old car, including a 385 stroker motor, Flowmaster exhaust, T56 transmission, MSD ignition system, 4.10 gears, four-wheel disc brakes, power steering, and 17-inch wheels. He's been careful, however, to keep every part he's replaced tagged and stored in the garage, including the original engine. But Kyler promises he's not yet finished with his '67 Camaro RS/SS, and the car's suspension is the next on his to-do list.

Check out more pics and Kyler's complete mod list after the jump.

The theme for this week is Camaros! Everyone with a Camaro of note should submit his or her ride to our Flickr pool. We're starting to collect some nice Camaros in the pool right now, but we want to make sure the entire week is filled with interesting Camaros, not just your neighbor's '97 F-Body. Just follow the instructions after the jump to submit.

How to submit to RR of the Day:
Create a
Flickr account if you don't already have one. Search for and join the group called 'Autoblog RR of the Day'. Upload up to three photos of your ride to your own account at a size no larger than 450 pixels wide if possible and include as much information about it and yourself as possible. Even if your ride is sweet, it will not be chosen if there's not a lot of info accompanying it. Click on each photo and just above the picture it will say "Send to group". Click that and select the Autoblog group. You're done, that's it!
