(ANNOUNCER)>> TODAY ON MUSCLE CAR IT'S INSIDE, BACK SIDE, AND UNDERSIDE.

OUR COPO CAMARO TRIBUTE PROJECT MOVES FORWARD WITH AN INTERIOR INSTALLATION. TOMMY SHOWS US HOW TO PROPERLY RESTORE A NEGLECTED PIECE OF YOUR RIDE. AND A NEW EXHAUST SYSTEM GOES BEHIND THAT BIG

BLOCK TO LIMIT EXHALE.

(STEVE)>> HEY FOLKS, THANKS FOR JOINING US. PROGRESS IS COMING ALONG NICELY ON OUR '69 CAMARO COPO TRIBUTE PROJECT. WE'RE GETTING READY TO PUT SOME OF THE SHINY PIECES INSIDE THE CAR. WE'VE ALREADY BUILT THE SEATS, REBUILT THE STEERING COLUMN, AND WE'VE EVEN PAINTED THE DASH ON THE OLD GIRL.

(TOMMY)>> TODAY'S THE DAY THAT WE FINALLY GET TO PUT INTERIOR IN OUR COPO. NOW WE SOURCED ALL THESE PIECES FROM TMI PERFORMANCE INTERIOR. IF YOU REMEMBER BACK, THAT'S WHERE WE GOT OUR SEAT FOAMS AND COVERS FROM. THEY MANUFACTURER AND DISTRIBUTE A WIDE VARIETY OF INTERIOR COMPONENTS FOR FORD, CHEVY, AND EVEN VOLKSWAGEN RESTORATION PROJECTS. AND THAT INCLUDES BOTH YOUR CLASSIC CARS AND SOME LATE MODELS AS WELL. NOT ONLY DO THEY HAVE STOCK INTERIORS, BUT IF YOU'VE GOT A LITTLE BIT MORE OF A CUSTOM TASTE, THEY CAN HELP YOU OUT WITH THAT TOO. WE'LL PICK IT UP WITH THE REAR PANELS BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO GO IN BEFORE THE SEATS. THEN WE'RE READY TO START WITH THE REAR SEATS, OF WHICH THE BACK GOES IN FIRST HELD IN PLACE BY THESE LITTLE TABS ON THE OUTER EDGE OF THE FRAME. THEN THE BOTTOM CAN GO IN AND WE CAN MOVE ON TO THE FRONT. EACH OF THE FRONT SEATS ARE HELD IN BY FOUR BOLTS AND IT'S JUST THAT SIMPLE.

ALRIGHT GUYS, SOMETIMES WHENEVER YOU'RE INSTALLING DOOR PANELS, GETTING THESE LITTLE DOOR LOCK RODS LINED UP CAN BE KINDA DIFFICULT. A LITTLE TIP FOR YOU IS TO USE A PULL KNOB AND SIMPLY SLIDE IT THROUGH, THREAD IT ON ONE OR TWO, MAKES IT A LOT EASIER TO LINE IT UP. NOW FOR THOSE OF YOU OUT THERE THAT'S TAKEN A DOOR PANEL OFF AND REMOVED A WINDOW CRANK PROBABLY SEEN THIS LITTLE PIECE AND PROBABLY THROWN IT BY THE WAYSIDE, CAUSE I KNOW I HAVE. THIS LITTLE JEWEL ACTUALLY SERVES A PURPOSE. WHEN YOU POP THIS THING ON THERE, THIS LITTLE PIECE OF PLASTIC ACTUALLY PROTECTS THE DOOR PANEL FROM THIS LITTLE EDGE CUTTING ON TO IT. ALSO IT WORKS AS A LITTLE PROTECTOR TO KEEP FROM POPPING THE CLIP OFF.

NOW WHAT ACTUALLY HOLDS THE DOOR HANDLE ON, A REALLY

PRIMITIVE LITTLE CLIP. BUT TAKING THESE THINGS OFF SOMETIMES CAN BE A BEAR. NOW THEY DO MAKE A TOOL THAT'S KIND OF A FORK THAT SLIDES IN AND PUSHES THAT CLIP OFF, BUT I HAVE USED THAT TOOL AND I'VE CUT THE DOOR PANEL BEFORE. WHAT I LIKE TO USE IS JUST A SIMPLE OLD GREASE RAG. NOW I'M GONNA SHOW YOU ON THIS ONE BECAUSE

IT'S EASIER TO SEE. BUT ON THE OTHER TYPE YOU'VE JUST GOT TO SPREAD IT OPEN SO YOU CAN GET THE RAG INTO IT. BUT ALL YOU DO IS KINDA WRAP THAT RAG AROUND IT AND THEN PULL IT, AND A LOT OF TIMES THAT LITTLE CLIP IS HUNG IN

YOUR RAG AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO LOOKING FOR IT.

WHEN YOU'RE DOING SOMETHING LIKE THIS, YOU WANT TO MAKE

SURE TO ROLL UP THE WINDOW CAUSE OTHERWISE IT'S PROBABLY GONNA BUST IT.

PERFECT!

(STEVE)>> FOR THE GAUGES IN OUR CAMARO WE'VE DECIDED TO GO WITH SOMETHING COOL AND DIFFERENT.

WE WANTED TO KEEP THE VINTAGE LOOK BUT ALSO HAVE THE MODERN TECHNOLOGY THAT'S AVAILABLE. FOR THAT REASON WE'VE GONE WITH THE 1969 SERIES GAUGES AVAILABLE FROM NEW VINTAGE. THIS PARTICULAR KIT FEATURES FULL SWEEP GAUGES WITH BACK LIT DIALS AND POINTERS AS WELL AS INTEGRATED WARNING LAMPS AND SIGNALS. THE KITS FOR THESE ALSO INCLUDE PERIPHERALS LIKE PRESSURE SENDERS AND CONVENIENT COLOR CODED SNAP IN WIRING HARNESSES. ANOTHER THAT'S COOL ABOUT THESE GAUGES IS THEY COME A TON OF DIFFERENT STYLING'S FOR CLASSICS AND MUSCLE CARS AS WELL AS CUSTOM CONFIGURATIONS. THEY'RE WAY MORE ACCURATE THAN STOCK OEM STYLE GAUGES, AND ARE BACK LIT WITH LED'S TO MAKE THEM WAY MORE VISIBLE.

(ANNOUNCER)>> COMING UP, FIND OUT HOW TO ACCURATELY RESTORE THE LOOKS OF YOUR TRUNK, ASSUMING THERE'S NO JUNK UP IN THAT TRUNK. THEN IT'S HEADER INSTALLATION INCLUDING A GREAT WAY TO KEEP YOUR BOLTS FROM EVER BACKING OUT.

(TOMMY)>> HEY GUYS, WE'RE MOVING ON TO A PART OF THE RESTORATION PROCESS OF OUR CAMARO THAT OFTEN TIMES GETS OVERLOOKED, AND THAT IS REDOING THE TRUNK. NOW THIS JOB DEFINITELY HAS A BIG BANG FOR ITS BUCK BECAUSE NORMALLY IT ONLY COSTS YOU A COUPLE OF HOURS AND LESS THAN $150 BUCKS TO DO THE WHOLE THING, WHETHER YOU'RE PLANNING TO KEEP THE CAR, RESALE IT, OR EVEN SHOW IT. FIRST THING WE'VE GOT TO DO IS GET THE TRUNK PRETTY MUCH ALL CLEANED OUT. NOW IT LOOKS LIKE SOMEBODY'S INSTALLED A NEW MAT IN OUR CAR. SO WE'RE GONNA KEEP IT, JUST CLEAN IT UP, AND REUSE US. THAT WILL SAVE US SOME COIN TOO. NOW AT SOME POINT IN TIME SOMEBODY'S ALREADY RECOATED OUR TRUNK, BUT IT STILL DOESN'T LOOK 100 PERCENT. AND DOWN HERE ON THE BOTTOM YOU CAN SEE WHERE WE'VE GOT A LITTLE BIT OF RUST OF AN ISSUE. SO WE'VE GOT TO DO SOME SCRAPING TO GET ALL THAT OFF. LUCKILY FOR US WE CAUGHT THIS STUFF JUST AT THE RIGHT TIME. THE RUST HAS JUST STARTED TO BLISTER AND THE METAL IS IN GOOD SHAPE WITHOUT ANY HOLES. BUST OUT YOUR VACUUM CLEANER FOR THIS JOB BECAUSE WE WANT TO KEEP OUR WORK SURFACE AS CLEAN AS POSSIBLE. WITH ALL THAT STUFF OUT OF THE WAY I'M GONNA MOVE ON TO THE SANDING PROCESS AND KINDA GIVE IT SOME TOOTH WITH A WIRE BRUSH AND SCUFF PAD. IF YOU SKIP THIS PROCESS IT'S GONNA BE A COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME BECAUSE THE NEW COATING YOU'RE GONNA SPRAY ON IT IS GONNA EVENTUALLY JUST PEEL OFF. SO IT'S TIME TO GET TO WORK. ON A ROUGH SURFACE LIKE THIS ONE, YOU WANT TO USE A WIRE BRUSH BECAUSE SAND PAPER JUST WON'T DO THE TRICK. THEN MAKE SURE THAT YOU VACUUM UP ALL THAT OLD CRUD

AND HIT WITH SOME WAX AND GREASE REMOVER.

ALRIGHT GUYS, WE'RE GONNA COAT OUR FLOOR WITH SOME DUPLICOLOR SELF ETCHING PRIMER, AND THEN FOLLOW IT UP WITH SOME PRIMER/SEALER TO GET IT TO A UNIFORM GRAY. ETCHING PRIMER IS DESIGNED TO CHEMICALLY ETCH THE METAL

SURFACE THAT YOU SPRAY IT ON, WHICH WILL PROMOTE ADHESION BY THE PRIMER ITSELF. AND ON THE TOP OF THAT THE PRIMER/SEALER WILL HAVE NO TROUBLE ADHERING. AND IT SEALS OFF THE METAL FROM FURTHER CORROSION. THE NEXT COATING THAT WE'RE GONNA APPLY IS THE DUPLICOLOR SPATTER PAINT. NOW THIS STUFF IS VERY SIMILAR TO THE OEM FINISH THAT THIS WOULD HAVE ORIGINALLY CAME WITH.

IT'S KIND OF A SPECKLE FINISH. THEY OFFER IT IN THREE DIFFERENT COLORS, BLACK AND AQUA, BLACK AND GRAY, AND THE GRAY AND WHITE. NOW THIS STUFF JUST SIMPLY SPRAYS ON, AND LIKE ANY OTHER COATING YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT IT'S FREE OF DUSTY, DEBRIS, OIL, GREASE, GRIME, ANY OF THAT STUFF. MAKE SURE YOUR SURFACE IS VERY CLEAN. ANOTHER THING TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN SPRAYING IS TEMPERATURE AND HUMIDITY CAUSE YOU DON'T REALLY WANT TO PAINT OUTSIDE IN THE DIRECT SUNLIGHT EITHER BECAUSE IF THE SURFACE YOU'RE PAINTING IS HOT TO THE TOUCH, IT'S TOO HOT TO COAT BECAUSE WHAT ENDS UP HAPPENING IS WHEN YOU SPRAY ALL THAT STUFF ON, IT INSTANTLY DRIES AND CREATES ALL THESE UNEVEN SPOTS, AND JUST TURNS OUT LOOKING LIKE CRAP. SO JUST MAKE SURE THAT WHATEVER YOU'RE PAINTING, IT'S COOL TO THE TOUCH. NOW YOU COULD USE SOMETHING LIKE SPRAY ON BED LINER TO DO THIS, LIKE YOU WOULD FIND IN THE BACK OF A PICK UP TRUCK, BUT THAT WOULDN'T HAVE THAT OEM LOOK THAT WE'RE AFTER. BESIDES, THIS STUFF DOES A PRETTY GOOD JOB OF HIDING IMPERFECTIONS AND THE FUNKY SPOTS. WHILE THAT STUFF'S DRYING I'M GONNA ADD ON A COUPLE OF LITTLE DETAILS THAT'S GONNA ADD A DIFFERENT LEVEL TO OUR RESTORATION. AND THEY'RE SIMPLE LITTLE DECALS. BOTH OF THEM GO ON THE TRUNK. ONE OF THEM TALKS ABOUT THE REAR AXLE THAT'S INSTALLED IN THE CAR, THE OTHER ONE'S FOR JACKING INSTRUCTIONS.

NOW WHEN INSTALLING THESE THINGS YOU DON'T HAVE TO GET TOO EXACT WITH THEM CAUSE NO OFFENSE, WHOEVER INSTALLED THEM BACK IN THE DAY, THEY WEREN'T MEASURING THESE THINGS OUT TO INSTALL THEM. HECK I'VE EVEN SEEN THE JACKING INSTRUCTIONS UPSIDE DOWN ON THE TRUNK LID, SERIOUSLY. IF YOU REMEMBER, THERE WAS A TRUNK MAT THAT WAS ALREADY IN THE CAR. WE CAN SAVE SOME BUCKS BY CLEANING THIS ONE UP AND PUTTING IT BACK IN. IF YOU NEEDED ONE FOR YOUR CAR, YOU CAN FIND THEM AT CLASSIC INDUSTRIES, AND THEY'RE AN IMPORTANT PIECE TO THE PUZZLE WHEN IT COMES TO RESTORING FACTORY APPEARANCES.

NOW SINCE THIS MAT HAS A LITTLE BIT OF THAT OLD WRINKLENESS TO IT I'M GONNA TAKE A HEAT LAMP AND WARM IT UP JUST A BIT TO LET IT SMOOTH ITSELF OUT.

AFTER ABOUT FOUR TO FIVE MINUTES OR SO IT'S NICE AND FLAT. ANOTHER ALTERNATIVE IS JUST TO SIT IT OUT IN THE SUN

AND LET IT DO ITS THING.

(ANNOUNCER)>> STICK AROUND TO SEE HOW YOU CAN HAVE THE LUXURY OF AN MP THREE PLAYER ALONG WITH THE APPEARANCE OF A FACTORY RADIO.

(STEVE)>> HEY FOLKS, WELCOME BACK. IT'S TIME FOR US TO GET UP UNDERNEATH OUR CAMARO AND ADDRESS A COUPLE OF THINGS WE'VE GOT TO DO UNDERNEATH. AND ONE OF THE FIRST ONES IS GOING TO

BE OUR EXHAUST SYSTEM.

(TOMMY)>> IN ADDITION TO THAT WE'VE GOT THAT GM

PERFORMANCE ZL ONE 427 AND AUTO GEAR FOUR SPEED MOCKED INTO PLACE. AND THAT TRANSMISSION, WELL IT NEEDS A CROSS MEMBER. WE'VE GOT JUST THE RIGHT THING SITTING RIGHT OVER HERE. THIS IS THE XFACTOR TWO CROSS MEMBER FROM AMERICAN POWERTRAIN. NOW THIS PARTICULAR ONE IS DESIGNED TO FIT PERFECTLY UNDER OUR FIRST GENERATION CAMARO, BUT THEY OFFER OTHER ONES OUT THERE, SUCH AS YOUR EARLY MUSTANGS AND FOX BODIES. THE XFACTOR TWO IS 50 PERCENT LIGHTER THAN A STOCK CROSS MEMBER, AS WELL AS 20 PERCENT LIGHTER THAN THE FIRST GENERATION XFACTORS. IT FEATURES A MODULAR ALUMINUM CONSTRUCTION AND IS CERTIFIED TO HANDLE UP TO 1,500 HORSEPOWER. IT USES THE STOCK MOUNTING HOLES IN THE SUBFRAME AND IT'S DESIGNED TO FIT ALL YOUR POPULAR TRANSMISSIONS, WHETHER IT'S MANUAL OR AUTOMATIC. AND THE MANUAL CASE THAT WE'RE RUNNING, OH IT OUGHT TO FIT LIKE A DREAM. PLUS WITH THE VERSATILITY OF THIS KIT, IT MAKES IT

GREAT FOR STREET AND RACING APPLICATIONS. WITH THE SIDE SUPPORT BRACKETS ATTACHED TO THE SUBFRAME, YOU CAN SEE THAT THE BEAUTY OF THIS UNIT IS THAT IT'S GOT TONS OF HORIZONTAL ADJUSTABILITY.

THIS SWAPPABLE BRACKET OFFERS EVEN MORE CAPABILITIES FOR ADJUSTMENTS,

THIS TIME VERTICALLY. ODD BALL ENGINE AND TRANNY COMBOS WOULD BE NO PROBLEM.

(STEVE)>> AS FOR THAT EXHAUST SYSTEM WE WERE TALKING ABOUT, IT'S GONNA START RIGHT HERE WITH THIS

SET OF LONG TUBES THAT WE GOT FROM DOUG'S HEADERS. THESE HEADERS ARE CERAMIC COATED TO KEEP THEM NICE

AND SHINY FOR MANY YEARS TO COME, AND ALSO TO INSULATE HEAT. THEY FEATURE FULL LENGTH STEEL TUBE CONSTRUCTION WITH INCH AND SEVENEIGHTH PRIMARY TUBES. THE WALLS ARE 16 GAUGE STEEL AND THEY ALL TERMINATE INTO A THREE POINT FIVE INCH COLLECTOR. EVERY DOUG'S HEADER IS PROPERLY TUNED USING THE CORRECT DIAMETER AND LENGTH OF TUBE NEEDED IN ORDER TO

REMOVE EXHAUST GASES FROM EACH CYLINDER EFFICIENTLY, THEREFORE INCREASING TORQUE AND HORSEPOWER DRAMATICALLY. AND THEY'RE ALSO DESIGNED ON THE CAR THEY'RE MEANT TO FIT, WHICH MAKES IT EASY TO CHECK AND RECHECK DURING DESIGNING AND MANUFACTURING PROCESSES. BEFORE WE ACTUALLY PUT THE HEADERS IN THE CAR I WANT TO SHOW YOU GUYS SOMETHING THAT WE LOVE AROUND HERE, STAGE EIGHT LOCKING FASTENERS. WE ALL KNOW THAT HEADER BOLTS WILL NOT STAY TIGHT. WELL THEIR DESIGN OF THESE THREE PIECE CLIPS RIGHT HERE

COMBINES INTO THIS UP HERE, AND IF YOU TURN THE BOLT AND PUT THE BLOCK RIGHT UP AGAINST THE PIPE AND THEN LOCK IT, IT WILL NEVER COME UNDONE. WE'RE GONNA USE THESE MISTER GASKET COPPER GASKETS BECAUSE WE'LL GET A BETTER SEAL ON OUR ALUMINUM HEADS

AND THEY DON'T TEND TO BURN OUT AS EASILY AS THE PAPER.

(TOMMY)>> IN THIS SITUATION IT'S EASIER TO SLIP THE HEADERS IN FROM THE BOTTOM, BUT SOME CARS, SOME ENGINE SETUPS, THE TOP IS THE WAY TO GO. LIKE MANK SAID, WE WANT OUR BOLTS TO STAY PUT, AND WITH

THESE STAGE EIGHT FASTENERS WE'LL BE IN GOOD SHAPE.

(STEVE)>> WE'VE GOT OUR HEADERS IN, GOT OUR HEADER BOLT LOCK SYSTEM IN, BUT I'VE GOT TO MAKE MENTION OF ONE THING TO TELL YOU GUYS IF YOU'VE EVER

PUT HEADERS IN A CAR. THESE DOUG'S HEADERS REQUIRED ABSOLUTELY NO CLEARANCING ON TUBES WHAT SO EVER. CLEARING THIS BIG BLOCK IN THIS FIRST GENERATION CAMARO, THAT'S QUITE A FEAT.

(ANNOUNCER)>> UP AHEAD SEE A TRANSVERSE MUFFLER EXHAUST SYSTEM INSTALLED IN A PONY CAR.

(TOMMY)>> HEY GUYS, GLAD YOU MADE IT BACK. WE'RE READY TO MOVE ON TO THE EXHAUST ON OUR COPO. SO WE BROKE OUT THE EXHAUST PIPES AND WE'RE GONNA GO WITH THE FULL STAINLESS KIT THAT WE GOT FROM MAGNAFLOW. IT'S A TWO AND A HALF INCH DIAMETER UNIT, PLUS IT COMES WITH A CROSS OVER PIPE THAT BALANCES OUT THE LEFT AND RIGHT SIDE, AND A TRANSVERSE MUFFLER THAT MOUNTS UP AND BEHIND THE REAR AXLE. MAGNAFLOW SYSTEMS COME WITH A LIFETIME WARRANTY, AND THEY'RE ALL DYNO TESTED AND PROVEN TO MAKE POWER. YOU CAN EXPECT PERFORMANCE GAINS IN HORSEPOWER

AND TORQUE IN A SMOOTH DEEP TONE.

THE SYSTEM IS EASY TO INSTALL WITH MANDREL BENT TUBES THAT ARE SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR '67 TO '72 CAMAROS AND FIREBIRDS.

(STEVE)>> THERE YOU GO.

(TOMMY)>> AND ONCE IT'S IN, THAT STAINLESS STEEL CONSTRUCTION LOOKS GREAT UNDER YOUR CAR. AND SINCE WE'RE RUNNING HEADERS WE'LL START THE REAR AND WORK OUR WAY FORWARD. THAT'S BECAUSE WE DON'T KNOW HOW LONG THE FRONT PIPES NEED TO BE, AND ASSEMBLING THE BACK FIRST WILL HELP US DETERMINE THAT. PUTTING THE DRIVESHAFT IN NOW WILL HELP ENSURE THAT WE DON'T HAVE ANY FITMENT ISSUES ONCE EVERYTHING'S HARD MOUNTED. THEN THE XPIPE GOES IN. NOW WE'LL WORK ON GETTING EVERYTHING

ADJUSTED AND SYMMETRICAL. ALL OF THIS EXHAUST TUBE NEEDS AT LEAST A HALF INCH OF CLEARANCE BETWEEN IT AND ANYTHING AROUND IT. THAT INCLUDES MOVING PARTS LIKE THE REAR END AND SUSPENSION. LAST WE MEASURE THE PIPE THAT CONNECTS THE COLLECTORS TO THE REST OF THE SYSTEM, AND CUT THEM TO LENGTH.

NOW I KNOW THIS ISN'T STOCK, BUT THIS IS ONE SWEET LOOKING SYSTEM. AND IF YOU'VE EVER PUT IN A MAGNAFLOW KIT, YOU KNOW THAT THESE THINGS LOOK GREAT, GO TOGETHER REALLY WELL, AND SOUND BETTER THAN A MILLION BUCKS. NOW ONE MORE THING THAT I WANT TO SHOW YOU THAT WE'RE

GONNA INSTALL INTO OUR COPO IS KIND OF A CREATURE COMFORT. NOW I KNOW MOST OF THE COPOS DIDN'T HAVE ANY KIND OF TUNES OR RADIOS IN THEM, BUT A FEW OF THEM THEY DID. SO SINCE I LIKE TO LISTEN TO SOME GOOD TUNES WHILE I RIDE AROUND, THIS IS ONE OF THE FEW BELLS AND WHISTLES THAT WE'RE GONNA THROW AT IT. THIS MAY LOOK LIKE A FACTORY CHEVROLET RADIO FROM BACK IN THE DAY BUT IT'S ACTUALLY A USA 630 CONCOURSE RADIO FROM CUSTOM AUTO SOUND. WHAT YOU SEE HERE IS A 300 WATT AM/FM RECEIVER THAT HAS THE LARGE PUSH BUTTONS LIKE THE CAR WOULD HAVE HAD FROM THE FACTORY. NOW NOT ONLY DOES THIS THING LOOK VINTAGE, BUT IT'S GOT SOME PRETTY COOL MODERN FEATURES TO IT. THIS HIDEABLE USB INPUT ON THE BACK OF THE RADIO ALLOWS YOU TO PLUG IN A USB FLASH DRIVE FOR

PLAYBACK OF SONG FILES. THE DISPLAY SHOWS THE SONG, ARTIST, AND ALBUM TITLES WHILE YOU'RE CYCLING THROUGH YOUR MP THREE OR WMA FILES. IT'S GOT A BUILT IN CONTROLLER FOR AN OPTIONAL C/D CHANGER THAT IS OFFERED BY CLASSIC AUTO SOUND THAT WILL INTERFACE WITH, CHARGE, AND CONTROL YOUR iPOD. THEY HAVE COOL ACCESSORIES LIKE THIS AMPLIFIED

SUBWOOFER AND SPEAKER SYSTEM, WHICH ARE DISGUISED

AS VINTAGE A/C VENTS. THE 250 SUB AND AMP COMBO ARE DESIGNED WITH A LOW

PROFILE SO YOU CAN MAINTAIN THAT FACTORY LOOK BUT

STILL HAVE A POWERFUL SOUND SYSTEM. IT WON'T BE TOO MUCH LONGER AND THAT BIG, BAD CAMARO OF OURS WILL BE HUMMING US A SWEET LITTLE TUNE. SO YOU GUYS KEEP WATCHING, WE'RE JUST ABOUT THERE.
