1.The story of the Camaro
4.My other cars I had and have.
This is my 1982 Chevy Camaro Z28.My Dad bought this car when I was around 4or 5 years old (87-88) and told me one day I could have it.When I was 15 the work started on the car.It wasnt in great shape after years of being used as a family car,leaking T-Tops and baking in the sun.1st we took care of the rust.The floors had some holes and the T-Top bar in the center was rusted out and also bent up from a break in.We got the car safe to drive and running well with a 84 Chevy Carb 305 and a 350 turbo Trans.She didnt look to bad either but a overhaul was needed.When I was around 18 I got some money together and replaced the nose and ground effect and had the car painted.A bit after that we swaped out the motor with a rebuilt 350 and trans.After a few years and I got a good paying job (21-23yrs old) we turned the car into what you see today.She is not perfect but It allways gets lots of looks at shows and people saying how nice it is. I have a bunch of things planed for the car and when money and time allows I will get them done.
Thanks for checking out my 1982 Camaro Z28
When I got the Mustang it took over my Camaros garage at my parents.My car sat out side under a cover for 1 year.I spent more time cleaning it then driving so I stored it at my uncles untill I bought my own house.The pic below is its 1st day in its new home.
This is a pic that I found of the car when I was around 14-15yrs old.The rear ground effect was painted black and you cant see but the front one was gone.Paint still had some shine to it.This is how I got the car and drove it untill I was about 18yrs old.
This is a pic of the car when I was 18yrs old.I saved some money and got the front ground effect and new front nose bumper.Had the car painted and added the lower gold stripes.
Summer 2012 I plan to have the lower stripes repainted and also repair the flaws in the paint ,wet sand and buff.
Clean and paint motor bay.
A newly rebuilt 350 trans will be put in as well.

Sweet Camaro you got there.
cool car, and story.
Nice looking 3rd gen I thing everything looks smooth together. 5 stars
Thanks man. As for plans, I'm not 100% settled on any one idea, but it will remain street legal for the most part.I have a decent 4 bolt 350 block sitting around that I tore down, so if anything I'd like to build a boosted 383. Probably a CSU blow through carb, single or twin turbo. Whatever I do with it in the future, it'll have to be good.If you look at my Mustang's page, my 2001 GT has a T56 6 speed swapped in it, Centerforce DFX, 03-04 Cobra aluminum driveshaft, 3.73 gears out back, BBK CAI, BBK offroad X, Borla Stinger catback, Steeda Tri Ax shifter, Vortech V1 supercharger that I picked up in May, waiting to be installed. In the next few months I'd like to pick up Stainless Works long tubes, Spec twin disc clutch, a CX Racing intercooler for the Vortech install, and that's my daily driver. Gonna have to one up that with the "fast" car. Rated you 5 stars BTW.
