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.

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.
1992 Chevrolet Camaro RS peelout and almost wrecks!
This Camaro is owned by
a friend of mine, who you see driving it. He's had it for 17 years as of
this vid being posted. It's all original, never been restored. Its the most
beautiful stock Camaro
of this style that you will ever see! Obviously the Exhaust is aftermarket, and he had bigger
headers placed on it as well.
