1985 Chevrolet Camaro Extraction
This is a 1985 Camaro I purchased for $100. It has a 2.8L v-6 with a 5 speed manual transmission. The story told to me was that the motor quit and the car was parked about 15 years ago. Then about two years ago someone stole the rear tires and wheels. They left it on a cinder block and the factory jack. The car eventually pushed the jack into the ground and fell of the block and ended up as you see it here. The extraction took a little over an hour. The driver's rear brake drum was exposed, so we started there and worked our way around. Three of the lug nuts on the passenger side front were in bad shape. The had chrome sleeves which got rust underneath. That made them bulge out so you couldn't get a wrench on them. I managed to chisel and peal the sleeves off, but it took more time than I had expected. The car was in better shape than you would think. The passenger rear brakes were locked up due to being half buried, but once we got that broke loose it rolled fine. The brakes even work. The car is a project for my 15 year old son. Let's see what he learns from rebuilding this Camaro that has been sitting as long as he has been alive.
Turbos FILLED With Sand! 3000hp Camaro Goes OFF Track!
Doug Cline was having trouble with his 3000hp twin turbo Camaro on the last day of Rocky Mountain Race Week, and to his surprise, after pushing through some fuel build up off the line his car did 190mph after breaking up through the starting line! Unfortunately, Doug chose not to pull the chutes and it costed him potentially two turbochargers after filling them with gravel & sand! Driving 1300+ miles and thrashing on this big block chevy twin turbo’d beast of a Camaro probably didn’t help in split second decisions down the drag strip. Check out this feature as we follow Doug on his journey into the sand pit!
