||Welcome to my Chevrolet Camaro website. I'm
the proud owner of a 1979 Camaro Z28. Acquired early in November
of 2002, she was obviously owned by a number of people prior to my purchase.
In general, the car was in fair condition when I first bought it.
In addition to the normal Z28 upgrades (350 engine, specialized interior
components, etc.) the car came with new wheels, aluminum rims, a 350 transmission
(automatic), dual exhaust and power windows.
(Currently, the car is acting
as my daily driver, and it has very few problems.)
|April 14, 2004 and $2500+ later:
Finally! The exterior is complete! Decals,
a LeBra, the gold hood scoop, and to top it off; chrome exhaust tips, the
exterior is finally complete!Final tuning to the engine was done by a local
mechanic (Yellowstone Automotive: they do very good work.) I had
the starter, heat feed lines and vacuum lines replaced and rerooted.
Everything works pretty good now. The car is much faster after the
tune up. I finally have times. 0-60 in 6.9 seconds 0-100
in about 11 seconds. It's modest, I know, but it isn't a race
car. It's a fully restored muscle car. Despite this fact, I
will now be working on performance upgrades. So far, I have installed
mandrel dual exhaust and well as full-length headers. I also have
a set of Summit turbo mufflers under there (I recommend them if you don't
want a really loud car. They sound awesome at idle and accell, but
they're guiet went cruising. You may want an X-pipe.). Finally,
I am sitting on an Edelbrock Aluminun manifold, but have been hesitent
to put it on. Pretty soon I'll buckle down and install it.
Other plans include adding a 268HE cam, perhaps a set of original Daisy
style rims (Torq-D) I have, fully functional ram-air, and air-induction
hood, and, while I'm dreaming, maybe a supercharger or turbocharger.

A friend's website. While I am profiled on it,
I do not condone street racing, its dangerous and unnessesary the vast
majority of the time.

If you own a Second Generation Camaro here is the site

::My car's stats::
Chevrolet 350 (original engine)
Rochester Quadrajet (four barrel with vacuum secondaries)
Automatic Turbo-Hydromatic 350 Transmission
Ventilated Disc brakes (front), drum brakes
Lief springs (rear), coil springs (front)
Top speed- The speedometer goes up to 130, but I am
guessing that top speed is more around 105-110 now. It's made to
0-60- 6.90 (based on OEM speedometer, it's closer to
6.5-6.7 with a proper launch)
1/4 Mile- no track. Estimating about 13.5x seconds
Thanks for visiting my website, drive safe and keep
