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.

Teal to Black 1992 RS Camaro Project Restoration Slideshow
Here is a slideshow of the work that was done on my Camaro. Originally teal with tan interior, and gets a complete makeover of black with black/gray interior. It took about a year to and costed under $2,000! Got a cheap paint job from a local auto body & paint place, and it looks great, and I've been taking great care of the paint ever since. I got the hood and interior and the silver RS badges all on Craigslist for under 100 dollars...big money saver there. The interior, seats and carpet were from an 1984 Camaro. The plastic pieces were all painted with duplicolor vinyl spray and has held up great. It needed minor rust repair on the floor boards, it was patched up and chemical blocked from coming back quickly. I have been customizing it with the purple lights, and a big sound system, and still don't think I'm done yet , LOL. It's an ongoing fun project. Hope you enjoy, would like some comments on what you think.





$1,000,000 Ferrari Restoration Detail
This Ferrari is a good friend and customers car that was flown in the night before from the UK. It needed a bit of work to get it looking presentable again, and after a 2 day restoration... shouldn't need anything more than layers of sealant and wax for the rest of its life. (if cleaned and maintained properly in the future) This video shows you what I'm thinking about as I restore a $1 million car, and how understanding the interaction between different materials will effect the outcome of your work. The purpose of this video is not about "step by step" demonstration, but rather a glimpse of what professional detailers think about when working on extremely rare cars. Thanks for watching and send me an email if you have any questions. larry@ammonyc.com -Larry





Chevrolet Camaro Z28 - Test Drive and Hoon of a 3rd Gen

Here's a list of some of the additions: GM Performance 290 HP 350 c.i. crate engine Hotchkis Suspension Baer T4 Cross drilled and slotted brakes http://baer.com/1982-1992-F-Body-Camaro-FireBird-TransAm-GTA-Brake s/ Flowmaster 3" Exhaust Koni adjustable shocks 2002 Standard Corvette Rims Flaming River quick ratio steering box and leather wheel OMP racing seats 6 point mild steel cage 6 Speed manual transmission built by Hanlon Motorsports ...and the seriously sweet Alpine cassette stereo from the 80's!





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.





Totally 100% Original 1980 Trans Am Survivor Barn/Yard Find Sat for 20 Years
This video is the actual first time seeing this car for myself. It was pulled out from the original owners back yard and pulled to a friends home until I could get there. This day it was 102 degrees outside so sorry for all of the puffing going on. This car was going to be scrapped after a mechanic came to see it and he said this car will never run. Well he was totally mistaken. Car sat outside for 18 years and its still not a rust bucket.. We got it running and now working on the carb. UPDATE. WE REBUILT THE CARB TWICE AND REPLACE THE GAS TANK, ALL GAS LINES, SPARK PLUGS WATER PUMP, RADIATOR AND 3 BENT PUSH RODS AND 2 BROKEN ONES. SHE NOW IS A DAILY DRIVER AND RUNS LIKE NEW AND BURNS NO OIL. I HAVE PUT OVER 4,000 MILES ON HER IN THE LAST 3 MONTHS WITH NO ISSUES WHATSOEVER. GO TO MY PAGE AND YOU WILL SEE THE OTHER VIDS OF HER PROGRESS





(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!

My Sons First Project Car - 1987 Pontiac Trans Am
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV 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!
