About “The Camaro”

I bought this car when I was 16 years old as a daily driver to school and work. At that time it had a corvette 283 motor with a powerglide transmission. It has gone through many modifications since that day. Major modifications include the blown 454 motor that was dynoed in the car at 751 horses with 660 lbs of torque. It has a manual valve body 400 turbo transmission. A narrowed Dana 60 rear with 410 gears, a billet drive shaft. The interior has a 12 point cage with the whole interior including the cage covered in tweed. Custom paint and graphics along with a set of wheelie bars finish up the outside.

About “Mazda Rx7 S2”

I have owned this little beast since 2002. It started out life as a 12a Auto, Canary Yellow, Standard 13" rims, rust spots here and there, Dodgy interior, very dodgy stereo. How UGLY!!!!!

I started off small, Popped 2 x 8 inch subs in the boot, upgraded to a very standard cd deck.

I then brought another stereo upgrade to a mp3 player and a 15" sub.

By this time i had blown up the auto gearbox a few times so decided it was time for an update.

SOOOOO.. I threw out the 12a, the auto, the rims, the head deck (i kept the sub ;) ), the old exhaust, the seats, and tranfered into her the info in the specs section.

Once the main transplant was finished, i ran her on the first ever Ipswich Rotor Crew Dyno Day and took out first place in the 13b NA category.

I have just sold the vehicle to my sister in law, so that i still have access to it and get to still drive her and so i dont lose money on her.
