    I'm not sure how I missed this. RIP Zach, I read this thread a while back and was really impressed with his dedication and work. Very few young people today find this passion. I'm happy he got to enjoy his time with a great car and bring her back as far as he did.

    Hey guys. so sorry it's been so long. haven't quite looked through all of the replies as of yet. I have posted on the nastyz28 facebook page wednesday... I have the car at home. it was decided to be given to his girlfriend of 5 year's which I'm VERY HAPPY it went to her. I just unloaded it off the trailer Wednesday night and got it all situated in my garage with the rest of my junk. Did some little things tonight, sorting oit some pieces, figuring out what's junk and what's good, etc.

    As for one of the comments I saw... absolutely NO way shape or form am in here begging for money or parts. honestly upsets me a little that someone would come off in such a way.

    Lots of friends will be in on this project. I have came up with the idea of having everyone that assists in whatever the littlest screw or bolt turned on this car, I will have them sign their names on the nitrous tank he had purchased for the car. plan on plumbing and mounting the whole system but leaving it disabled.. simply because that's the last thing his girlfriend needs to operate LOL we gotta teach her how to run the car as it stands now.

    Here's a coupleb current pictures how the car has sat for quite some time, and a few little things i just started working out. This is now in my garage

    Hey y'all, Dave here again. Just wanted to give everyone a short little update.

    Been making some decent progress on the Camaro. Tieing up a lot of loose ends, got the car running real well, all tuned in, starting to tackle some bigger things now.
    Cleaned up the engine compartment quite a bit. Got the big wires on, new wire looms, re worked the harness under the hood, cleaned up the chrome for the front end, ordered up a whole bunch of new body hardware to finish the assembly of the car. Unfortunately, i must not have saved any recent pictures under the hood. But, here is what i've got:

    Would be cool if someone could throw a pic of Zach or his car in the profile pic.

    Just heard about Zach's passing. So sad to hear. I am glad that his friends and family are finishing his build. I bet he will be smiling from Heaven when its completed. Zach's passion for his car reminded me of a younger me. Such encouragement. May Zach rest in peace.
