To all my 3RDGEN Fans CHECK THIS OUT! ITS A 2010 Concept kit for a 3RDGEN!,I'm telling this kit looks hot, and I'd do one like this!
Sad though,they might not produce it, not sure if 3rdgen fanbase would buy into this.But like I said ,hope it makes the market, that looks badass!
THIS MY 1987 CHEVY CAMARO IROC-Z. ITS A VIN 8,WITH A 350TPI I BOUGHT THIS CAR ABOUT 7 YEARS AGO. THE GUY WHO HAD IT BEFORE ME DIDN'T PUT A DOLLAR INTO IT. IT WAS WHITE, WITH SILVER AND BLACK DECALS.THE CAR WAS STILL STOCK AND IN POOR SHAPE. I PAINTED IT YELLOW 5 YEARS AGO.IT NOW HAS FLOWMASTER EXHAUST,A BBK 255LPH INTANK FUEL PUMP,BBK FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR,AND SOME OTHER EXTRAS NOW,BUT I STILL NEED ALOT TO MAKE IT REALLY NICE.
Well here is the whole story on how my 3rd gen f body experience began.My very first camaro ever was a 1986 2.8 liter. I bought that car for a 1000 bucs and long story short no matter how nice I made it. I always had haters. Every body would always knock on my 2.8l. And to be honest that 2.8 had more zip off the line than the 86 305 carburated that I have now.Even guys in their hondas would talk trash on me. So I always wanted a good v8 one.Thats when one day I was in downtown at a place I didn't want to be, but I happened to pic up the newspaper,and read the classifieds,and saw wrecked 87 IROC-Z 350 TPI T-TOPS 4 WHEEL DISC PARTS OR WHOLE.When I got home I called the number, and started to talk to the guy about it ,he said I sold the wheels, taillights and some interior.But the was car is hit in the front and needed a front bumper and fender,but it still turned key and fired up! Now here is the ironic part,He asked me where I was from, and when I told him ,he was shocked . he said I live in the same town, what street you live on? I told him, same street!!! It turned out this now yellow IROC-Z was less than a block away from home. so I walked down the street where he had it behind a fence in a carport with a cover on it!And too this day I still can't believe it.But its now about 5 years in my life, and I love this car.It has more power than any car I had ever owned.But now my next goal would be to build an extreme f body.In the five years I had it,its seen 3 transmissions ,2 fuel pumps,it was white, now yellow, I had to find some original wheels, tail lights , front end, windshield, smog pump, alt, waterpump,and a whole other shit load of small things that was either broke,worn,missing!ect. I would of had some chrome IROC wheels by now if it wasn't for the tranny,those 700r4's seam to keep blowing out 2nd gear, it wouldn't shift out of first.So the tranny in their now was all rebuilt with a tci master rebuild kit and I got a transgo small shift kit for it. had it all rebuilt even a new valve body seporator plate, so I could drill out the holes for the shift kit.And I also got a new front pump and tci torque converter.now I even have a back up good 700r4. and so far no tranny problems.The fuel pump was another issue, and to change them bad boys god bless you, cause if your shit don't come apart easy it ain't fun to do. plus the damn gas tank neck always gets stuck coming out, thats the biggest pain in the ass , and if all your exhaust is welded than thats a task to get apart too.
THIS PAGE IS FRESH UNDER CONSTRUCTION LIKE THE CAR.I'VE ADDED K&N AIR FILTERS AND A JET TPI AIRFOIL. I WANT TO ADD A PERFORMANCE MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR NEXT.AND A NICE NEW ALT. I ADDED A FLIP FACE JENSEN DVD PLAYER AND EQ.AND 4 EXTRA SPEAKERS FOR HIGHS. IT HAS 3 INCH PIPE FROM THE CAT BACK, FLOWMASTER CROSSFLOW MUFFLER AND SOME CHROME TIPS.
Front drag struts and rear shocks
I ADDED AN ADDCO REAR PERFORMANCE SWAY BAR.PLUS LAKEWOOD PERFORMANCE DRAG SHOCKS.AND NEW SET OF REAR COILS.MY NEXT STEP IS A NEW PANHARD ROD AND CONTROL ARMS. I GOT THE TAIL LIGHT KIT FROM SUMMIT. THIS IS A NICE BLACK OUT KIT.
kit says two piece, but it was 3 piece, kit might of been pulled, lack of demand. I'm looking to see if they are still avaliable 4-4-2009, I bought mine in JAN of2007,I know I got it from Summit,but may no longer have it. bottom of box badshape now, got wet in my basement. but still readable.
THANKS FOR CHECKING OUT MY PICS,THERE WILL BE MORE SOON. I AM A TRUE 3RD GEN F BODY FAN.
I ADDED HYPERTECH EXTERNAL PERFORMANCE COIL PART# 4054, ACCEL PERFORMANCE MODULE IN MY CAP WITH ACCELS 300+ 8.8MM WIRES.I ALSO HAD THE TRANNY REBUILT WITH ALL TCI PARTS,TRANSGO SHIFT KIT,PLUS NEW TCI TORQUE CONVERTER!
MY PROJECT CAR.

THANKS FOR CHECKING MY PICS.
I felt like doing something with my steering wheel, it was dingy, and everything was dusty
old can of engine paint I had, thats yellow,and some masking tape I had
looks so good you'd think I'd bought it this way, custom yellow
New Rad 5 /03/09, just put it in
3 CORE RAD, A LIL BIGGER THEN STOCK, DID FIT TIGHT,BUT FITS ,MUCH BETTER COOLING!
plan on getting new wheels, this was on 5-22-09. plan on getting new rotors. but just wanted to make my calipers yellow. so atleast they look a lil more clean. after cleaning them all day I painted them up, like 7 coats
SUPERHAPPY THIS YEAR, STEELERS WON THE SUPERBOWL! PENS! JUST WON THE STANLEY CUP!
AND I JUST GOT WHEELS FOR MY CAR AFTER SO LONG WITH THE STOCK ONES. Was going to go with the 20's wasn't sure how they would handle, they wasn't much more. So I went with 18" plus tires are cheaper. 6-15-09
man so sweet, wanted them so long now!
even got 99 cent numbers from AutoZone, bit off mustang,
, Well next year New Paint Again,heads and headers.
out and about pics
I've been hard at work now for 8years, when I started with this car it was really beat, I mean, really poor shape, no wheels at all, IROC WHEELS was sold from it, no tail lights,it was in a fender bender. needed nose, fenders. and many ,many things, like its on its 4th trans. but dude who had it before me was parting it out, found him local ,in a newspaper, 87IROC-Z parts or whole.
while its mine now, ans aslong as I can turn a wrench, no matter what happens ,I'm going to try my hardest to keep this car nice and back to a pretty nice ride. I'm a hard worker and a big fan of all CAMAROS! and all cars that anyone has put there hard time into! so please be fare and rate me some stars, I'd do it for you too.
