Front End trouble
Here's my problem. I have a 37 Ford with and 86 Camaro sub frame. My tires are slanted in at the top Toe In I would presume. The Camaro has a negative alignment meaning shims have to be taken out to get the alignment right. My thoughts are over the winter to extend the upper A Arms out a little longer so to get the toe in and out close to possible to now allow for proper alignment to be done. I think this would do the trick. Any suggestions would help.

If your tires are tilted in at the top, that is not a toe in -toe out problem of which would be corrected by adjusting the tie rods.
Your camber angle is off,and as best I remeber that type of car has a McPherson strut type shock that goes through a strut tower,and have elongated holes for adjusting by three nuts attached to three studs that go through the towers.
You may want to consult a good front end alingment shop or even consider a body shop that has ,and uses lasers for their frame rack for extreme precision on all four corners.
Hope this gets you on track.............no pun intended !!
