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.

1985 Chevrolet Camaro Extraction
This is a 1985 Camaro I purchased for $100. It has a 2.8L v-6 with a 5 speed manual transmission. The story told to me was that the motor quit and the car was parked about 15 years ago. Then about two years ago someone stole the rear tires and wheels. They left it on a cinder block and the factory jack. The car eventually pushed the jack into the ground and fell of the block and ended up as you see it here. The extraction took a little over an hour. The driver's rear brake drum was exposed, so we started there and worked our way around. Three of the lug nuts on the passenger side front were in bad shape. The had chrome sleeves which got rust underneath. That made them bulge out so you couldn't get a wrench on them. I managed to chisel and peal the sleeves off, but it took more time than I had expected. The car was in better shape than you would think. The passenger rear brakes were locked up due to being half buried, but once we got that broke loose it rolled fine. The brakes even work. The car is a project for my 15 year old son. Let's see what he learns from rebuilding this Camaro that has been sitting as long as he has been alive.





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.
