About “I ROC U”

I got her in 93 and was used for a daily driver for a few years then in 98 she was stolen in front of my work and was driven to california which they were about to sell it off but got pulled over by an officer and found out it was stolen. She was then towed back to oregon which i found out they stripped the car's floor mats, stereo, tires, and some other random stuff and they also stole a good 5k of personal items in the car.

She was gone for a 3 month period so I was forced to buy another car as I exepted to never see it again, so when i got the camaro back i used the other car as a DD and the camaro was kept in the garage for several yrs rarely started let alone driven. then back in around 05 I moved and was forced to keep the camaro outside which she was again never started so in mid-09 I got enough money to get her running which cost me $1500 because of injectors needed cleaning, fuel tank needed cleaning, all fuels flushed and filled, and some other small stuff.

well now i have my girl back and running strong and hoping sometime to get enough money for tags, reg., and some other requirements so she can be driven again!

she will not be left stock for to much longer as I have BIG plans for her when I can afford to get parts. Also this is the car I learned my mechanical experience on.

Iv since got the car fixed up Iv competly restored the paint to near as perfect as i can get it but I still try to get it nicer!

Also while this sound strange, Everytime I drive her even if its just down the street I feel like me and my car are an million bucks and she sure does get plenty attention, exepecially with no muffler lol.

I cant wait for the day to get her street legal and a few mods in her to go crusin down the freeway on a nice warm summer night with the t-tops off (which dont leak btw) listening to boston going 80+mph without an care in the world. Now thats the life! dam I cant wait!

About “Dark Shadow”

What makes a Ford Girl Go Bad? This car, lol. I purchased this car on ebay in January 2005. Shortly thereafter it was kidnapped for four months and completely gutted, with a 4th gen interior swap and went from a 305TBI to a 355 complete with a Flowmaster exhaust, Dynomax headers and 600 cfm Edelbrok carb to rumble monster under the hood, not to mention the purple w/blue pearl clearcoat custom paint. Too many upgrades to name, with the latest upgrades prepping her for the drag strip -- 4:10 rear, posi and ignition coil. Hopefully this spring I'll swap out the already beautiful engine for a 383 to make sure I hit those low numbers. Let me know what you think.
