1985 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 IRocZ (IRocZ)
Last updated Dec 15, 2011
I saw this car for sale one day on my way to town,(how anyone could miss it is beyond me) and decided to stop and check it out after work. Turns out other than the paintjob and stereo it was an All original Car and i was i love all the way up till i heard that some **** before me had took it on a test drive with it low on oil and did a MASSIVE 6 grand burn out.... needless to say something gave and it had a knockin engine, so i the $2,000.00 OBO went to 800 bucks cash i and i drove it home. The Paint job was different to say the least but it polished up real good and after i changed all the fluids and added some fully synthetic oil the knock quieted down alot so i drove around for a while, then i heard of some kind of oil additive that would help quiet it even more so i Bought it and dumped in with the next oil change, i spent extra time that day polishing on my car and fired it up and pulled it into the Garage. The stuff worked for pulling it into the garage but a while later i was wanting to go some where and when i started it the knocking was back with a vengence. I was super pissed! so i shut it off and stormed back inside pacing around trying to think of where i was gunna come across another motor. And then something inside snapped and i said "If it's gunna go it's go NOW" and so i jumped in and pulled out into my drive and slammed it down into 1st and floored it doing an epic 6,500rpm plus burn out and then BOOM Bang tink tink tink and i let off and put it up into overdrive and pulled forward over the now grenaded Connecting rod from cylinder 5. But the bastard wouldn't die, it idled just fine (with the exception of it sounding odd with number five firing out the bottom of the oil pan) i went out for a few days after that and it still fired right up.... Stubborn bastard just wouldn't die! Hell that motor ran all the way up untill i drove it into the garage to swap out that one for a another!
TunedPort Fuel injection V8 (to be honest i never checked the block to see if it was a 305 or 350 but i am gunna assume it was a 305 since that is whats normally in them) 700R4 3.73 limited slip T-top
Tuned Port Fuel injection, AC, Cruise Control, Variable speed Wipers, Power Window, Power Locks, Power hatch release, Power Steering, Power Brakes, T-Tops, Extended Range Stereo, Z28 Package ( IROCZ that is) IRoc wheels- the works man the only thing it didn't have was the Fog lights in the front bumper (which i almost ordered and installed just so it would have every option)
Once the motor popped (after an angry burn out) i set another 305 in it with the intentions of rehooking up the tune port but since i had very little knowledge of it i took it to a buddies house where he was gunna hook it back up for me, after a few weeks of him tryin to buy/trade/ talk me out of the tune port set up he hauled it back to my house (evidently he was pissed i wasn't gunna come off with it cause i wanted to keep my car as factory/ reliable as possible) and he failed to strap the hood down and it flew off the car while he was flying down a dirt road ( and pelting my front end with rocks kicked up from his truck breaking my headlights and chipping the **** outta my paint!) well the hood was bent all kinda of bad and he eventually got me a plain jane hood after my car sat for two months with no hood and a tarp that would stay put as long as i was looking at it to cover the motor... Oh and it had Hood pins, hooker header- Shorty Headers, the cat had been deleted, 3" Flowmaster muffler, and K&N air filters.
