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!

(Restoration of a 1967 Plymouth Barracuda) PROJECT FISH - PART 01
Outside of my airsoft hobby, I have this one. "Muscle" cars. Funny, in THIS generation, it is called "muscle" cars..... Way back then, it was just a car.....
Maybe this generation discerns the difference between "ricer", "rice burner", "tuners", "classic car" and "muscle cars".
This is my friends 1967 Plymouth Barracuda. It will be a LOW COST, ground-up restoration. No media blasting, not even sand blasting. Cannot afford that "luxury". I will be using various ways to remove the old paint, and spot checking for rust holes.
Part one is rust check and paint removal. As well as showing the small block 340 that will go in the car affter we prep and paint the "engine compartment.....
This is the first of MANY videos that will span the course of over one year!
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.

My Sons First Project Car - 1987 Pontiac Trans Am
I've been looking for a car for my son for a while now. He wanted something that he could fix up and keep for years. His dream car was a third generation trans am and that's exactly what we found. It's going to be a bit of a project, but that's what we wanted anyway. We plan to restore and modify the car and film videos of the progress along the way. The car is a 1987 Pontiac Trans Am with the LG9 5.0 TPI V8. The previous owner already added headers, a cold air induction setup, aftermarket distributor and coil, 2500 stall converter, TCI servos in the tranny, drag shocks, subframe connectors, boxed control arms, and more. Overall, we think it's a great base to start with. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!
