1985 Camaro Start to Finish
This video chronicles the transformation to my wife's first car, a 1985 Camaro. She bought the car in 1995 and when we first met she was driving it. We decided to sell it to my brother a few years after we got married. During the summer of 2008, I reacquired the car and secretly brought it back to its original glory.
Camaro - I will survive!
"I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor made me think of my car, and what she might have to say to the previous owners who neglected her ;) Slideshow photos span approximately one year. The restoration was done by MJ Auto in Montreal/Ste-Genevieve and by myself (they were super generous and let me use their garage space and all their tools)
First start on new rebuilt 305 engine from 1984 Z28 Camaro
This is the first start that made this engine for several years. This 305 L69 has been rebuilt since 2006, and started the 07/23/2009. Big Thanks to Sam and Fred for mechanics ! New Spot ManCamaro : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3MjZ41jJTQ
3rd Gen Camaro Build
A (lotta) work in progress. I started this project to swap a 191cubic inch V6 to a 350 V8 (along with performance parts, and swapping & upgrading the transmission) in 2009. (see modifications list below.) These are pictures and videos as I progressed and the very first engine start and test drive. I applied primer to protect the metal as I knew I would have to put the project on hold, which is where it has been since. Plan to start again by gutting & redoing the interior here in 2012. --------------- 350 block swap moddified Vortec heads CompCams XE268 cam Edelbrock Performer RPM Vortec intake Edelbrock 750cfm AVS carb Headman 1 5/8 headers 700R4 transmission - .500" line pressure Boost valve - huge servos - servo release check valve - TCI throttle valve - TCI Breakaway 2400 stall converter (lockup) - B&M ratchet shifter, front oil cooler, TrickShift oil.
