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.
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

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
My Mustang Project Car
Well this is a video about my project car a 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe. I haven't done any
video on it because I haven't really been working on it. I used it as a
daily driver for 2 years but kept having problem with it. Also had 2 piston
rings fail on the # 5 cylinder so now I need a new block. Wish I knew why
the engine failed on me only had 2000 miles on it after the rebuild. I hope
to get it running again soon!
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.
65 Mustang Fastback Restoration Project
This is my 1965 Mustang
Fastback I rescued from a field rusting away. I finished it around July of
2008 in my back yard garage with no professional assistance at all. It took
me about 26 months to complete. It has a 302 Ford motor and an 5 Speed
manual transmission. I restored this car to the information on the original
data plate on the door that included the body color and interior. The
stripe is unique in that I added a darker red to the Poppy Red body color
to get a stripe that is a little darker but blends in with the factory
color. This car features four wheel disc brakes made from all Ford parts.
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.
