About

This is my son's first car. We went out for a carshow in Charolette North Carolina. When walking through the rows of parts and stuff for sale, we came across this. It had about 85,000 miles on it, but it was a rust free North Carolina car. And the neat thing about it, was that it had a 5 speed manual transmission in it. The guys story was that he worked at Richard Childress Racing, mobbing the floors and stuff, when the original automatic tranny went out of it. And it just so happens that they had a 1986 Camaro there with a 5 speed that was hit hard in the front. So, the guys there put in the 5 speed, with the hydrilic clutch in it. So, once we got it home, my son ran it for a summer, but he always had to adjust the clutch in it. (just a pain) So, we found a 1987 El Camino with the 3 speed and robbed the pedals out of it. So he ran it some more and he was getting terrible gas millage with it. So we chacked into it, and here it was a 6 cycinder t5 tranny in it. Then we found a 1991 Firebird at a swap meet with a 5 speed. Which would have the good tranny, the t5 worldclass tranny in it. So we swopped it out and put that one in. It worked great. Then he wanted a hopped up motor in it. So I found a 1974 truck 350. I rebuilt it, put a heavy cam in it, flat topped pistons, ect. So we pummed that in there with the new 5 speed. We had it dynoed and it put out 325 at the rear wheels. He was happy. Then about 4 years later he wanted to up grade again. So, we bought a new Tremic 6 speed. And you could use everything again. And once we had that in there, he got about 23 miles to the gallon. It just made a really fun car out of it. We also put in a 3.73 posi.

In the future it will need a paint job, but for now its alright.
