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 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
Stock 3rd Gen Camaros (170hp TBI vs 230hp TPI vs 245hp TPI)
Not all 3rd Gen models were created equal... they ranged in horsepower from 170hp on up
to 245hp. From the economy version 170hp L03 TBI 5.0 to the hot version
230hp LB9 5.0 TPI manual 5-speed model with G92 option and the 245hp L98
5.7 TPI with G92 option. This is just to open a few eyes out there on the
many different options and engines these cars had back in the late-'80s and

A simple morning drive featuring a 1982 Camaro Z28 with a few mechanical

Here's a list of some of the additions:
Baer T4 Cross drilled and slotted brakes

Flowmaster 3" Exhaust
Koni adjustable shocks
2002 Standard Corvette Rims
Flaming River quick ratio steering box and leather wheel

...and the seriously sweet Alpine cassette stereo from the 80's!
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!

Last 3rd gen Camaro
This 1992 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 is last of many
categories: there is really a neat story behing the car to keep workers
from rioting on the last day at Van Nuys plant, on the last day of work one
of the workers would win the last 3rd gen Camaro made in 1992 it was the
end of the greatest generation of Camaro.

JCG Restorations 1968 Camaro -- /BIG MUSCLE
Tucked away in a small industrial park in Oxnard, CA sits JCG Restorations
& Customs, a moderately sized shop that has built some of the best
performing pro-touring cars that we've ever driven. Now generally we don't
focus in on shops, however when the owners of three of our best test cars
start dropping names, we tend to listen. Originally we descended on JCG to
drive Blu Balz, a stunning 1968 Camaro owned by one Karl Dunn.
However since Mother Nature decided to water the Earth that day, we put our
original plans on hold and got shop owner Cris Gonzalez to give us the in's
and out's of what it takes to make a stellar pro-touring car.
