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.

1984 Z28 Camaro Project Car
My dad's 1984 Chevrolet Z28 Camaro.
I no longer plan to restore and use this car as a daily driver. I will be
buying an older pickup truck and will restore it and I will upload videos
of the restoration process of it.
I will restore this car at a later time. Fuel economy plays a big role in
this decision and I really
would like something that already runs and doesn't have 200k miles and that
gets better than 8 to 10 mpg and doesn't have rust holes everywhere. I have
been finding more and more big problems with this car than I first thought
there were and it is cheeper for me to get a more practical and a bit
better on gas. I hope this doesn't dissapoint anyone and I hope you guys
enjoy the videos to come!
Shout out to gearheadAbe
Keep up the good videos!

1984 Chevrolet Camaro z/28 Project
This is the edited version of my other video. I must say I despise windows
movie maker, the song always goes out of sync when you're trying to edit.
This 1984 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is my first car.
Purchased without a motor I got a great deal. It came with relatively
fresh paint, 85iroc gfx, and almost no rust except for on the LCA's (which
i plan to replace). The body has 118k km's on it as well as the T-5
tranny. The previous owner has bought a 3" mandrel bent stainless header
back Exhaust with a cat delete. it
came with a set of hooker competition headers as well as weld draglites all
around, 215's in the front, 255's in the back.
Since i bought the car in may, '08 I've bought a '69 010 sbc longblock.
tore it all down and rebuilt it to make sure it was done right. (good
thing i did, somehow the previous owner managed to get a seed inbetween the
deck/heads.) So far the engine is rebuilt, bored .060 over with
hypereutectice pistons, a .477 lift cam with 112 LSA, '72 883 heads,
edelbrock rpm air gap intake, holley 650 dp w/ squarebore mech secondaries
and hooker headers. Nothing fancy, but as a student, cars are bloody
expensive. one day i want to built a nice all-aluminum roller 383.
As for the car, nothing much has been done to it yet, all i've done is put
new e-brake cables in. However, once the motors in and running, i'm going
to put my funds into a pile of UMI suspension stuff, such as SFC's, LCA's,
LCARB's, Adj PHB, Wonderbar, Koni Yellows all around, Eibach Pro-kit and
maybe a hurst shifter / shift knob ( i feel it gives the car a more late
60's muscle car look), and maybe some 4th gen seats and audio equipment
(since theres absolutely nothing now).
Anyways, the video's not as good as i was hoping, i was patient with movie
maker for a while, but now eventually i just gave up. would rather do it

be too advanced.. oh well, Gotta loves them 80's

3rd Gen Camaro - Fox-Body Mustang (the good, bad and the ugly)
Most car guys don't know the difference between the 230hp G92 optioned
models, or the 5-speed and automatic models, or the 170hp lackluster TBI
versions (not to be confused with TPI versions)... Mustang guys smoke the 170hp TBI
models, as well as the "run of the mill" TPI automatic models, and believe
they can do this to any and all. Well, not all 3rd Gen F-bodies are created
equal. Optioned from the factory with the 230hp TPI (not TBI) engine,
manual 5-speed tranny and 3.42 gears, these 3rd Gen F-body sleepers gave
5.0 Mustangs absolute hell.
In 1990 the G92 option code became a full performance package rather than
simply a rear axle option as in previous model years... GM also offered an
answer to the Saleen Mustangs by way of option 1LE, which
consisted of the G92 optioned without A/C and other creature comforts, and
the addition of Corvette brakes and other road racing equipment.
About the only way an IROC-Z Camaro could take out a 5.0L Mustang from this era was with
the Tuned Port Induction and addition of these performance options: G92,
1LE, L98 or B4C.
The TBI powered Camaro
were not at all in the same league as the performance version TPI Camaro, or 5.0 Mustang, these 170hp TBI models were
GM's economy de-tuned versions and were around 50-60 less horsepower versus the
performance optioned TPI models. These non-performing models gave the 3rd
Gen F-bodies a bad rep on the street... many think that these were the
example of 3rd Gen F-bodies, when in fact, and unlike Ford, GM offered many
models, with many engines, camshafts and rear-gear ratios...
