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.
ThirdGen Camaro Tribute
One of the most beautiful cars in the whole world. So i made a little video
for you all so enjoy!!!!!!!!!
Camaro z28 350 Small Block
Short video of my 1985 Chevy Camaro z28 drag car. This was
the second time it was run with the new 350 small block engine. With this
set up it's currently running 7.9 1/8 miles.
1985 Camaro Z28 Retractable top
I mention this to be an 84 in the video, but a sharp viewer suggested 1985,
and pictures of same confirm that! I don't believe I've seen another Camaro like it! This
conversion was done not on Chevy's line, but in an aftermarket customizer's
shop. The top is manually raised or lowered into the compartment behind
the front seats. The compartment's lid is also raised or lowered manually.
Some variations of this car had a completely soft top..this one had a hard
surfaced top with soft vinyl in the area of the rear window. According to
the owner, there were several factories that did this customizing work.

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.
