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.

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.

Kristy's Surprise-1985 Camaro
As a surprise for my wife's birthday, I was able to get her first car, which was a 1985 Camaro Sport Coupe. When it arrived, it was in really rough shape and over the course of 3 months, with the help of many individuals I was able to install new springs, ball joints, wheels, tires, interior and have it painted. Mini City Auto Body did all of the paint and body work during this time and the results are amazing. Needless to say, Kristy was shocked. Note: In between Kristy's first ownership of the car and now, my brother had been driving it. After the ball joints wore out, it was parked and had not been driven regularly since 2005. He graciously gave the car back to me when I told him about my idea. It arrived in Wake Forest, NC on 6/23/08 and I gave the car to my wife on 9/27/08.





First start on new rebuilt 305 engine from 1984 Z28 Camaro

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. anyways.. 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 on mac/iMovie.





1985 IROC Z28 BRAND NEW
Anyone that would like to see what happened to this car after I sold it should visit www.thirdgen(dot)org. Go to the message boards and do a search for "4.3 mile IROC-Z". There are informative comments along with videos and pictures of the car cleaned up and running. All the people that have commented how much work would be needed to clean it up and get it running are proved wrong. The car was sold by that owner over a year ago at a Mecum auction for $27K and has yet to surface again.
