1984 Chevrolet Camaro (Ghetto-Ride)

About

This is my 1984 Camaro, first car I ever bought and still have it. I bought this car back around 1991.
I'm currently restoring it, and also customizing it a bit.

I started with the interior, and ripped everything out. I mean everything!

I replaced the ugly and dated 84 dash, and installed a more modern looking 92 Dash. I replaced the ugly blue carpet, with a nicer looking graphite color. I also changed the color of all the interior plastics to graphite too. I recovered the headliner and speaker covers. Added the power options that the car didn't come with from the factory ie. power windows/mirrors.

I've now moved to the exterior, and adding the 91/92 style GFX. The car originally didn't have any GFX, so this will really make it look nicer.

Some future plans for this car.
Converting all exterior turn/brake lights to LED. --- Done
Audio System: Plan on customizing a double din navigation unit into the factory location, custom door and kick pods. --- Done

Specs

5.7L V8

Factory Options

This car was originally a 2.8l V6 pretty much no option car, no power windows, no A/C, nothing!

When that motor gave out, I was forced with a decision. Scrap the car, or restore but make it better.

I decided on restoring and making it better! Along with all the appearance upgrade, it now has a 5.7L V8 and every option that was available for these cars.

Mods

Custom made LED Tail/brake/turn/reverse lights
Custom made LED front parking/turn lights
Custom made audio system (sub box, kickpods, and double din)

See photo albums for all the work that has been done to this car, and also see what it looked like before I started.
