First Camaro- 1980 Z28

Hey guys to start it off let me tell you a little bit of background information. I'm 18 years old from Aylmer Ontario Canada. I bought this Car just before my 17th birthday in July. The car was down in Point Pelee Ontario about a 2 hour 45 min drive from Aylmer.The back tires wouldn't hold air and it was not saftied nor licensed. Anyways I plan to rebuild this car over time as I have enough money to do the job nicely. At 18 the cash flow can be difficult! I'll be asking a lot of questions, and looking for lots of advice and tips. Sorry this thread will not progress like many of the amazing other builder's on here do.

So home it came on my dad's friends nice big 5th wheel trailer.

Picture as it was sitting in Point Pelee:

On the way home, up on the trailer!

And the Camaro made it home!

So I drove it the whole summer everything was good, then early september the 305 in her kicked the bucket. I broke a connecting rod to the piston. That broke piece attached to the camshaft did a nice ammount of damage to my block, and cylinder walls. JUNK YARD for that engine, I salvaged any useable parts like the water pump, oil pump, starter, etc. For the time being we put back in another 305 that my dad's buddy generously gave us for free. It started right up! It's a great thing that I have a very knowledgeable great friend named Tyler who helped me out!


Pulling out the old 305:


HERE'S YOUR PROBLEM!!

Tyler with the donor 305 going in!

And it's in:



On a side note, found another proud Z28 owner at my Uncle Chris's wedding at the Delta Armouries in London Ontario, he came up to me and asked if he could go get his camaro and park beside me for a picture, I thought it was a great idea!

The orange paint with blacked out trim, L88 hood and T-Tops is a great combination.

Good luck with it and welcome to NastyZ.

Thank you very much! I was contemplating painting the level flat top part (if you know what I mean) either glossy black or flat black. To break up the hood a little. Suggestions?

And I also feel the silver on the t-tops doesn't really fit into the car well. Just my thoughts. It should be black I think

Pretty car. I like the orange and black trim. Are you going to put the stripes back on it?

Welcome to the fun house.
