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.
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
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 Camaro Z/28 Project
This is my first car. A 1984 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. Bought it in may
2008 with no engine. The body was in great shape, no rust except for a bit
on the trailing arms. 118 000 km's on the Body and T-5 Tranny. New
stainless 3" Exhaust, headers back
with a cat delete. It has '85 Iroc GFX and what appears to be the
relatively rare 90-91 "blister" hood. Also game with the Grant steering
wheel and weld draglites all around. So far I've spent the summer
rebuilding a 1969 010 block 350 sbc. Nothing too special, punched .060
over with hypereutectic pistons, what appears to be some edelbrock .477
lift cam, edelbrock Air-Gap RPM intake, 650cfm dp holley, hooker headers.
Come spring I hope to install UMI SFC's, LCA's, LCARB's, PHB, Wonderbar,
Koni Yellows with an Eibach Pro-Kit. Hoopefully, If I get enough money,
I'd like to get some aluminum performance heads and a different
cam/valvetrain to optimize my setup.
Anyways, this is what I've done so far. I would do more, but at the moment
I'm nearly 500km's away in university. Cant wait for spring!
