About “85 camaro”

I got the car on 5-23-2008 with a gm 350 and a 700r4. I then pulled the motor and put in a 383 stoker I took out the 700r4 and in the middle of building a th350 for the car. I got the 383 from my best friend’s brother who shortly after lost his life in a hunting accident. R.I.P Josh

On 5-26-08 the car took first place in the best unfinished at the Oconto Falls Memorial day Show and Shine

About “Supercharged SS”

Well my Kia Forte got totaled from someone who ran a stop sign and I t-boned them. I then took my insurance refund and bought this beauty. It took lots of searching and lots of testing many cars but I stumbled upon this one. I test drove it and instantly loved it. First off the appearance was what draw me to it, it is immaculate and only $10,000. Then I sat in it and the interior is as nice as the exterior. I then asked to test drive it and put the keys in the ignition and seen it had only 51,000 miles on it and I was even more impressed. After my test drive I was pretty much in love. The car handles great, has great power, great fuel economy, and is overall a nice ride. So i bought it and the only problem was it needed a new rack and pinion, which was no problem and the dealer fixed in a day. So now I've had this beauty since September.
