    Hi everyone...

    My name is Dave, i was one of Zach's good friends. I too, am a huge car enthusiast, much like our friend Zach. Many of us know; well, in person, you could REALLY tell, his '79 RS was his entire life, pride, and joy, next to his girlfriend Sam. Well... I have already posted on the nastyz28 page on facebook... I have one message.

    This project will continue in memory of Zach. After things calm down a little, I will be setting aside my current dream, pride and joy, my big block '86 Monte SS, taking on Zach's '79 RS Camaro to finish and enter in all of the local shows, cruise-ins, etc. Something i just felt i had to do ever since i had heard the news. Knowing Zach's anticipation & drive to get the car street-legal and his true passion for what he did, I needed to continue his dream.

    I will try to post pictures as I go, i'm not too sure of the current stage of the Camaro, other than i went through all 60 ish pages here to see all of his progress. Don't get me wrong, i've worked on this Camaro previously with him... Just been a while since i've even seen the car myself.
