• These Camaro performance and restoration
    parts companies are hand picked by me. I
    am a 1st gen GM F-Body enthusiast! Check

  • illegalAutoParts.com specializes in parts that
    are said to "not be legal" on vehicles that are
    "pollution controlled". Like Nitrous oxide for
    your street car is illegal in most states. Alot
    of the high performance parts are typically
    "for off road use only". I would love to be
    able to say that my ride is "so bad-ass that I
    get my parts from illegal auto parts"! It is all
    in the name, and that name is "bad-ass"!
    Check them out for your Camaro so you too
    can say that your Camaro is bad-ass! Be
    sure to check with your local laws regarding
    the legalities of certain performance parts
    that you are putting on your vehicles. They
    do not promote putting illegal modifications
    on any street driven vehicles, and we do not
    promote it also!  
  • COLUMBIA PARTS CO has 79 Camaro

WIDEST WHEEL AND TIRE SIZE CHART FOR
THE 1979 CAMARO AND 1979 FIREBIRD.
This information was from a Car Craft article on this subject that was entitled
"BIGGEST MEATS FOR YOUR MUSCLECAR"

"Weld Wheels" for the information in the article!
You will need to remove the outer rear seatbelt anchor/retractor and flatten/modify the bulge in the
rear wheel well with a hammer!
There may be lower control arm contact with some steering gears!
17 and 18 inch is said to be a really tight fit and success will vary from vehicle to vehicle
The steering stops and/or the lower control arms should be modified to prevent contact with the 17"
and 18" combos!
Also "A" Body Chevelle, Skylark. Cutlass for 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 and 72 and "A & G" Body for

This is a picture of what I came home to the day
after the PAWTUCKET Mill Fire in 2003. 18 homes
caught on fire that night, all of which could have
been prevented!
I want the car above to have a paint job like the one
that's below, as a way of saying thanks to all the
firefighters that risk their lives for us on a daily
basis! Damaged from a fire, then brought back to
life,  then caught on fire and then put out by
firefighters!
Firefighters say that
"stupidity is our job security".  
Whenever someone sees the car I want them to
remember to think twice " don't risk a firefighters
life because of stupidity".
PLEASE DONATE!
