If you’re a do-it-yourself kind of person, get ready for the king of DIY. Hot Rod Garage has undertaken a cheap speed project, and it features an $800 1979 Chevrolet Camaro.
The purpose? Get the 1979 Camaro running in the cheapest way possible. That means plenty of Craigslist scouring, low-end parts and plenty of things that shouldn’t match, but somehow do.
It’s incredible to see what the guys find in order to bring the 1979 Camaro back to life. It may not be pretty, but in the end, the 1979 Camaro fires up, runs, idles and doesn’t produce any sort of foul odor or smoke. Success.
In total, the entire build, including the Camaro itself, cost only $4,942. If that’s not cheap speed, we don’t know what is. Check the episode out for yourself right up above.
