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.

In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2001 Chevrolet Camaro Z28. I take viewers on a
close look through the interior and exterior of this car while showing
details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the
vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up
and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this
car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
My Boys Nissan 240 w/ V8 Swap "Japanese Muscle"
My boy called me this morning telling me he got the 240 running. He did a
V8 Swap from a Infiniti. My boy drifts so this is his drifting car. He got
a TON of money in this thang. This is lowered on some SSR wheels the rear
wheels have a 12" lip, all the wiring has been snatched out and re done
with painless wiring and painless switch board. EVERYTHING on this car was
built or fabricated by my boy. This Car was Built Not Bought. I dare any
box chevy, Camaro, Mustang, whatever pull up.
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.
Camaro Z28 messing with 455 GTO on the street
Late-Model Camaro Z28
with bolt-ons messing with a classic 455 swapped GTO.
The GTO jams it and then one of the passengers thought they were being
tailed by an unmarked B4C (special service police) Camaro holding a radar gun (video
camera, lol) and you can notice the nervous and unsure look on his face as
we roll beside, then his complete and total relief once he recognized a
couple old pals in a regular Camaro, lol.
(This LT1 Camaro made
280hp at the wheels and ran 13.1 at Mason Dixon Dragstrip)
This footage was shot way back, many years ago, with an old junky analog
camera, so apologize for the poor video quality.
