1981 Chevy 540 Big Block Camaro Project (Part 1)
This is my first attempt at rebuilding a car. This is my 1981 Chevy Camaro, I got it in 2004 and
drove her for two years before parking it in an outdoor storage lot while I
deployed to Iraq and then moved into a new home . After sitting outside for
three years I decided to strip her all the way down and build her the way I
always wanted to. I'm going for a ProTouring look and got my hands on a 540
Big Block. More project update videos to follow...
Engine Rip-off of the Century - How I got Screwed by Bill Mitchell Hardcore Racing
In 2005 I bought a crate engine from Bill Mitchell Hardcore Racing. It was
a total disaster from start to finish. Within a year the engine had become
a coffee table in the reception area in my office.
I can laugh at this $43,000 screw up because it is several years ago now.
And because I think I may get the last laugh. Watch the video all the way
to the end to see why.
Please send this video to everyone you know so that no one else gets burned
like I did!
UPDATE: 4 Sept 2009, Bill Mitchell Racing has UNsubscribed from my videos
and deleted my video from his favorites.
Guess he has no sense of humour...
UPDATE: 5 Oct 2009, Bill Mitchell Racing has blocked me from his channel.
Awww, I was having fun.
UPDATE: 15 May 2011, Bill Mitchell has finally noticed my little video and
has launched an aggressive counter attack to discredit me. Read the last
135 comments - it's pretty funny.
UPDATE: 17 May 2011, Bill Mitchell has disabled commenting to his videos to
get rid of the huge number of negative comments.
I've opened an online store where you can get 540Merlin T-shirts and other
great stuff! This is the only source in the world for 540Merlin stuff.

632 SHAFIROFF BAD ASS BIG BLOCK CHEVY * 57 CHEVY PRO STREET DRAG TRUCK RUNS 8.50's DAMN!!
This was an awesome car show in Mathews, Va. on June 1. It was the best car
show I have ever been at and I have been to plenty. Nice cars, good looking
women, plenty of restaurants, shops for the ladies, and an extremely nice
little Old Town. They blocked off the whole town and it was rods
everywhere. All to benefit the Fire Dept. and Rescue Squad. It was wall to
wall people all day long. The name of the event was " CHASING PAVEMENT
VINTAGE CAR SHOW".
