    Nice job. So does that mean you are going to be at Hooters for the toy run on the 9th?

    I remember your post when you purchased a Red LT1 camaro and cut her up and threw her away piece by piece in the Trash I think.... Correct ?

    oh man .. what was in those pistons.. looks like Mud !

    Nice Progress !!

    hey BTW ... do you still have the seats from that Donor Camaro ? Looks like you swapped them out for some racing seats.

    It could happen, where is is being held? My weekends are usually pretty screwed up but sometimes things work out.

    Yes this engine was from the cut up '94 Z28:

    When I open up the engine it was full of a water oil mix. One of the heads had been damaged in a crash, the car sat for years then I bought it. During that time water had leaked into the engine from the head.

    I still do have the fourth gen Camaro seats. I actually have a couple sets.

    The dash was made out of scrap aluminum. :D

    I was asking about the Seats cause my girlfriends best friend had a Flat and she left her car there while she walked ... by the time she came back ... Someone had Stolen all her Seats in her 95Z. ! When she told me that .. I felt so bad for her .... I told her " I know how you feel " .... I had my 97 SS hood stolen off of my SS Camaro !!

    SO that was her DD.. and she is Seatless .. i told her I would do what I can to find her seats.... would you sell them .. but the Shipping would kill it if you did!!
