I bought a 67 Camaro RS for only $6,500 and I'm taking it to LS Fest East. There isn't a lot of time to get ready so we're swapping in an LS2 from J&J Auto Wrecking
The LS2 is getting the complete Holley EFI treatment and some BRAND NEW HK Wheels as well. I love the way the wheels and tires came out, can't wait for the body work to match the drivetrain!
HK Wheels:
Nitto 555G2 Tires:
Now I've got 2 weeks to have this ready for LS Fest East, let's make it happen.
Shop Motul:
Common Questions:
What motorcycle do I ride? A few. Ducati 1198, Honda Goldwing, Honda Grom, Honda Ruckus
What do I do for a living? Make AM-posts videos.
Can you wheelie? No, I suck.
Are you fast? Sort of. I suck mostly though.
Where can I keep up with you off the bike?
Instagram: WatchJRGo
Facebook: WatchJRGo (or JRGo, FB hates my branding)
Do you go to school? College, for 2 classes.
Why do you ride so dangerously? What do mean? I was doing 25.
Do you go to the track? Of course, hopefully there will be videos in the future.
Do you play video games? No, but I might stream N64 Goldeneye at some point. Twitch: WatchJRGo
Are you afraid the police will watch your videos and arrest you? Something something evidence something something warrants and due process of law

A Powerglide with a stock converter behind an LS? Why exactly?
B Johns

Keeping the power glide at this point because of a “numbers matching” argument is ridiculous, IMO. You’re going to regret not putting in 4 speed auto in it, when you realize how much better the performance could be. However, it’s your duck and you can eff it anyway you want.

@Mexican Spec I had a powerglide once. Never could get the POS to shift out of second. Seriously though, if you have a "race" application that forces you to choose a powerglide, that thing ain't going on the highway.

Dude it makes me seriously cringe watching you wash parts in a solvent tank without gloves. Gloves are cheap, cancer is expensive.

Again, a full size aluminum restaurant sheet pan is a wonderful thing to have on your work bench. Catches the fluids. I use them all the time. Under the round drain pan, to sort and clean parts, and of course the rare times I'm rebuilding a transmission

Even if you kept the engine stock or mostly stock, you should drop in a 5 or 6 speed manual transmission. You could add gears to the rear but still run low rpms on the highway, and would be way more fun to drive.

Hmm.. Only $67 in parts, but with the invaluable help of your Dad, who went to Powerglide school! Priceless! I know some folks loved those Powerglides for racing. I had one in my first car- a 1970 Chevelle, and I distinctly remember how unpleasant they felt in that 1 to 2 clunk when I was stuck in 30mph traffic on the Bronx Whitestone Bridge. I was just so happy to have a car, I didn't care.

Yep, just like everybody else is saying. Jr's dad needs his own channel. And of course it'll be call Watch Jrs Dad! And the first few in the series will be watching Josh rebuild a 2-speed automatic transmission. I assume they are one of the easist to get your feet wet on !Wasn't he saying he'd like to be able to do that sometime in his life?

Not gonna lie, Ross Sr. sounds a bit like Johnny Cash. :) p.s.- With advent of electric vehicles all the knowledge treasure trove will be lost of people like that of Ross Sr. Americans are lucky, they got to experience the true motoring age from WW 2 onwards. Per capita 800 vehicles. Compare with India, only 50 ICE cars per capita and that to will be lost with introduction of EVs. Sigh :(

What a great video with your Dad, keep them coming! That dude has obviously built a bunch of these, work with him every chance you get and remember every minute. Now we know why you are a mechanical guru, you were taught by a mechanical guru. Loved his tech tips throughout the rebuild. Just watched it a second time, I never do that. I spent every weekend of my youth in the garage with my Dad, damn I miss him.

Enjoy and cherish the opportunities you have to work & learn with your dad. This video reminded me of when I was in my teens & twenties rebuilding wrecked cars with my dad. I was 27 and he was 65 when he left us forever. That was 33 yrs ago. I learned so much from him. Spend as much time as you can with your dad. You'll be glad you did.
