    Hi, Im Zach and I have recently purchased my first car last september and am in the middle of restoring it. I am 14 years old and have always been interested in cars and goin to car shows, drag races, etc. I found this camaro last september and jumped at the deal at buying it for 1300. The motor in it runs perfect and is a '80-'85 350ci 4-bolt main with a turbo 350 trans. My plans with the car include rebuilding the motor (hopping up a little), refurbishing all the interior, repainting the car the original rally sport 2-tone paint that was light blue on the bottom and dark blue on the top, all new weather stripping, powder coating the frame, cowl hood,etc. To sum it up, im restoring it but giving it a little more attitude. So far i have gutted the interior, got the motor ready to pull which ill be taking out as soon as it warms up a little, and everything else you can see in the pictures. Im also gonna be replacing the p/s quarter and the p/s floor pan. I am also doing all the work myself (except the paint). The car starred on pg 57 of the april 2009 addition of hot rod magazine,lol. Tell me what you think of the car and what I have done to it. Ill have pictures on here in a bit. Thanks, Zach:bowtie:

    Welcome to Nasty Zach,
    Glad to see another teen fixing up an old school. I traded my 86 IROC-Z for a 1979 Z28. I've only had it for about a month. I have been trying to work out the little bugs as i go. Post up some pics so we can see what you are working with. Also the best site for posting pics in my opionion is Photobucket.com. Good luck -Matt
