The Goodmark Camaro is making good time towards making miles on the highway. Before we get too far, however, it's at the point of installing the best suspension components on the market for this car. We expect that these changes should make the Camaro handle like it was on rails, which goes along with the Bill Mitchell powerplant that will make it go like a rocket.

As builders know it pays to use the best products and take your time. Our builder, Dale Etheredge subscribes to that theory, as you see in the photos, but he also knows that even when using the best and doing the job correctly, there are times when the builder has to make a change or two. This is not a criticism of the products installed on the car, it's just reality when components from a dozen or so aftermarket suppliers are put together on any kind of car. The engineering is top quality, but sometimes we just have to shave a little here, add a little there, and fab a new spacer or washer so all the parts fit without interference. Etheredge even takes care to make sure that after he builds it, someone else (maybe me) is able to work on it. Good idea.

Follow along as Dale shows us how to make this Goodmark Camaro a true handler.
