About “Black Beauty”

My brother Dean enlisted in the Navy recently and asked me, his 18 year old little sister, to take care of his Camaro SS convertible for him while he is in the service. (He's either very trusting or very stupid!) He knew from the day he bought the car that I loved it, but until now he never even let me drive it! He lived a couple hundred miles from us, but came home for a week visit before leaving for basic training, and he checked me out on the car before he left. To make everything official, he put the car in my dad's name (so the insurance would cost less!), but I'm taking care of paying for everything including basic upkeep, regestration, inspection, and insurance. Dad even volunteered to park his car outside so mom's car and the Camaro can be parked in the garage. The Camaro will only come out to play on clear days with no chance of rain or snow. My Cavalier will still be my daily car. I want to be able to return the car to my brother in as good a shape as it's in now!

About “SexyLexy”

BLEW THE MOTOR IN MY 95 CAMARO STARTED PRICEING A NEW ONE . THE PRICE OF A HOT ROD PROJECT WAS A LOT LESS . FOUND THIS ONE SHE HAD A BLOWN TRANNY LITTERALLY CHUNKS FELL OUT OF THE TORQUE CONVERTER. FOUND A NEW TURBO 350 FOR 600 INSTALLED IT JUST FINNISHED YESTERDAY. DRIVES LIKE A DREAM. SOMETHING ABOUT GETTING TO DRIVE A CAR WITHOUT ALL THE COMPUTERS AND MODULES THAT IS JUST RELAXIING. THINKING ABOUT TRYING TO CONVERT IT TO A BIG BLOCK . NOT SURE YET THE 350 IS NICE .
