page 2 my family and friends cars
I am a Junior at Cajon High School. You can also get ahold of me on "myspace.com", yah I know kind of gay (myspace.com/73camaro). I got my Camaro in July of 2004, for $1,000, and spent most all of my money on the car. I hope you like what I've got.
This is my '73 Camaro. It was ordered with AC black interior, silver paint with a Black vinal top all topped off with a 307. In 1972 my grandpa bought a 4 door Nova with a more powerful 307....... no bragging rights anyway..........
This is how my car looks now, I'm redoing the suspenshion and awaiting a trans (TH350). In the near future I should also be getting some Mini-Lites, the rims used on the later "Trans-Am" cars starting about '69, I plan to go for a Trans-Am look, I don't know how much the actual cars have been lowered and if it would be streetable that low. If you have any info on the Trans-Am Cars please let me know.
Some kick ass art by Matthew Malady (Poorkd's older brother). One day my car will look like that, its on its way and should be ready to drive soon. I'm still thinking about the side exahust, and the front air dam. But she'll look something like that.
I had this picture in my folder at school, it fell out some ass hole picked it up and ripped it in half!
The front left wheel looks as if some thing big was up, later my uncle looked at that and saw that the spindle was for a first gen Camaro with drum brakes.
My car the day I got it, after my friend Josh and I stripped the interrior.
This is what my goal is, a vintage Trans-Am race car.
My car is now painted "Hugger Orange".
Thies are the rims i'm thinking of getting if there not too outrageous these are the "Trans-Am" racing rims made by Mini-Lite
My car how it used to be.
Driver's side with soon to be removed body panels.
My friend, Stephan. He is one of TWO people that have realy helped with my prodject, along with my friend Josh (Poorkd)
My car looking the best it has in a long time... 3 hours of work and I had the body panels on the car only to realize that I had no idea what the hell I was doing! Then I had to take them all off ............CRAP!!!!!! Now I'm getting a "pro" to do it . At least it'll look good.
After about 7 trips to Auto Zone for bolts, my other helping friend, and I got that '79 G body 305 out of a very dirty car.
Another shot of the 305. That 305 was a pain in the ass to tear down and the oil in the engin at first looked ok then became glooby and torned many different colors.
The 305 after about an hour of back busting work on some very tight bults Not to mention a good 7 trips to Auto Zone with my other friend and my father

This is how I remember my car. This is also the first time my car was worked on by another person other than a few friends and I, that I will never forget.

Oops we forgot to extent the "legs" on the hoist and the engine droped a few inches, that "helped" us with our problem with getting it down

-Update- well after some junk yard digging, i managed to get some seats, $50. They are from a '77 Camaro. I've met a problem with them, they don't fit. The "Rails" on the seats are too narrow, i gues some where around '76ish the seats changed slightly. A bummer for me but not a huge deal, they'll just need some fabrication...
