Get a Chilton's book and fix up the RS. Take what you need off the extra shell and junk it or sell it.

Yes, use the running car to build yourself a beginner street machine. There are plenty of 3rd Gen Camaros int he you-pull-it yards that, along with your shell, you should be able to build a nice enough car on a budget.

Defintiely invest in Chilton and Haynes manuals, also hunt around online to buy a copy of the factory service manual, that'll be one of your biggest assets.

Thats one car that comes on my top 5 list, all this car will need now is better brakes like the EBC brake pads I found at http://www.buybrakes.com/ebc/

I agree Junkman and 55,,, a reference Bible first, then make 1 car out of 2. Last but not least, ask lots of questions,,, so you will measure twice and only cut once.
Good luck kid.

Here is a link to one place for a catalog for any parts you may want/need.
They sent me both the disk and the paper back catalog, which ever you would want.
Good luck on your project.
