    Well this is my 80 Z/28 350/4speed.
    I found this car under a tarp and knew by the silhouette it was a camaro :) talked to the owner and he sold it to me for $1500. on one condition that when i finish the car bring it by and take him for a ride.
    It had been sitting since 93. Towed it home got it running runs great but latter found out it was not the original motor! any how i am restoring it, so far i have lots of new parts int,trunk lid, fenders , fender wells, radiator support and lots of other stuff powder coated.
    I plan on having a stock appearance and a killer drive-train.

    Well today i managed to log in some hours in the garage,for starters i pulled the motor and trans out, discarded the old fuel lines, brake lines, and dropped the gas tank.
    Getting the car ready for the sandblasting.
