Bought this off the internet and have done a lot of work on it. It's got a new crate 350 with 4-bolt main, Edelbrock Performer intake manifold, Edelbrock 4-barrel carb, headers, 5-speed manual transmission. It's a work in progress. Still a lot I want to do to it.

Check out http://www.thirdgen.org/rides/index.tgo?action=view&rideid=9463 for more specs and pics.

That's a real clean looking Camaro. What's the hp rating on that crate motor?

I don't know if this will answer your question or not:

I'm not sure if that's the exact engine, and of course, I've got mods, like the 4 barrel and the headers. I'm glad you asked because the garage never gave me the paperwork on the new motor and this gives me a good reason to get that straightened out!

Well, I'm going to the 3rd Gen Nationals this coming weekend! They're being held in Frederick, Md. Saturday is a big car show and on Sunday everyone's going to the Mason Dixon Dragway for a day of racing and dyno testing. Sounds like fun! ;D

Here's a pic from the 3rd Gen Nationals yesterday. There were some really nice cars there! That awesome silver f-bod parked next to me took 1st place for Firebirds. There were folks there from up and down the east coast, Wisconsin, even Washington State!

Thanks for the offer, but the seats in mine are in pretty good shape. They're not electric but I don't move them around! ;D There's a bunch of f-body sites that you could advertise them on.

Alot of my friends were there, Kat, Red, Tony, PK, Jay, etc... I wish I could have gone but my Trans Am wasn't ready and the $$$ wasn't there for a trip.

Nice Camaro BTW :)

In 2004 I had a custom-built World Class T-5 tranny put in it... got it from a place in PA called G-Force.  Also found out it's got a high-dollar Centerforce clutch in it.  Only problem is that my speedometer is way off and I can't find any way to fix that.

Last year I had all new Z-28 coil springs put on it and it handles like a new car now!  Runs great... sounds awesome!
