THIS SMOKING AND KNOCKING CAR IS SOLD, TRADED IN ... see it's replacement here . :) Welcome to my 85 Trans Am page! For now I'm go... Show moreing to leave the 305 in there but I'm contemplating a new 350 ...(Fall 2007 updated pictures on page 2)
Just waiting for the snow to melt, a few revs, nothing special. The motor is a semi-tired 305 with 100 on the clock, 4bbl carb and a single flowmaster muffler. Not sure about cam, if any. My daily driver. Enjoy. Show Less
It's really mild, but cams in the 70's were garbage anyway, so ... anything is better than nothing. :)
Look at the Monte in the backgroun... Show mored. "What's goin on over there?" Be patient Monte, you're up next! :)
If you look close enough at the oil pan in the above pic, you might see the spot that prompted the whole ... engine swap/build. Rust!
New cam and lifters in. New high volume melling oil pump. "New" oil pan from the 350 donor. Built up and ready to be reinstalled.
The headers off that 350 mentioned earlier. Rusty, but they'll do.
New front windshield glass, body buffed and waxed.
Hey, you should go check out my non-winter car, my 78 Monte Carlo!!
Thanks for stopping by! Show Less
This is my 77 camaro. Winter car! "Why would you drive a 77 camaro as a winter car?" you might ask .. simple.
My 78 Monte is allergic to snow, ... Show morethat's why.
Body is 85% solid. The frame is somewhat rusty, no rot, holes or cracks though. You can see the lower left quarter needs help. Be patient.
First two pics are of the car when I saw it for sale. I saw a few third gen Camaros as I was shopping for a winter beater, but when I saw this, whoo! Second gen love at first sight.
Engine WAS a stock 305 with a 2bbl carb.
Until I saw an Edelbrock Performer RPM 4bbl on ebay for like 80 bucks. :)
Bye bye iron 2bbl intake and carb! You're history!
Ah, a breath of fresh air through the Q-jet and Performer! The Q-jet is from a 350 donor engine we got from one of my dad's co-workers. We also got some headers off that engine too ... but those went on later ...
Finished engine upgrade, part 1.
You thought I was kidding about the winter car thing, didn't you? Hmm ..
But not just a winter car ...
No more screwin around, cam time on page 2! Show Less
