About “carmine”

I never intended to buy this car...but most of you know how that goes!!!
already owning 4 cars (had not sold my cavalier yet and the z28 had not burnt up yet).
i just wanted to...look at it. a gentleman nearby had posted this car up for sale and it was nearby and being the camaro fan i am i had to see it.
as it turns out this car just stunned me... the paint outside was a bit faded but the body was in great shape and the interior was like it just rolled out of the factory, and the fact it had less then 80k miles..i had to have it.
and i got lucky...the owner had just came back from norwood ohio and using his 70 chevelle he had competed on pinks all out.
while he was there he had saw and fell in love with a harley....but his wife had told him no because he already had 2 toys.
so he agreed to sell the camaro.....wanting that harley bad he put the car up for a price that would sell quick.
and sell quick it did...though it mainly sits covered and protected on a warm dry day i take it out and it always draws crowds,
though its a berlinetta it has the option engine( 350 sbc) out of the z28 and at some point someone but the spoiler from the z28 on the back...yet the interior has the refinement and luxurys of the berlinettas. power everything,excellent heat/ac
its great having the best of both worlds sometimes lol

About “The Slime”

Im 17 and this is my 1st car, I wound up buyin her from another user on here. i took the old 302 outta it because it had very low compression and was seriously tired. So i decided it was time to upgrade, my girlfriends dad bought me a 302 Hencho En Mexico Block and we set up for my first rebuild ever! many memories in this car...

 

Specs for “carmine”

No specifications listed.

Specs for “The Slime”

she's a 1970 base model which only 4,816 were made.she's got a # matching 302 in it with an edelbrock air filter and covers. A holly 600 carburetor, a edelbrock torker II intake and headmen elite ceramic coated headers. She runs like a dream for me! She's got front an rear drums.
UPDATE
we put a 302 HENCHO block in it an bored it 30 over, built it from the block up with all performance parts, i got my hands on a set of GT40 heads off a stock raceing mustang and put the roller rockers in it, upgraded to a more aggressive cam for that mean bump. now its got strait 2 3/4"-3" pipes, so now im up to around to about 350hp we havent done the math yet. but all we need now is a 9" rear with 373 gear ratio and i can continue to never see a set of tail lights!
