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 “Keeper”

This car has sold on 3/11/11 Here it is the little old schoolteachers pride and joy.After selling her house on Long Island,the schoolteacher could not bring her Camaro to her retirement home in Florida.She had to surrender the car after it had lived a pampered life in her heated garage.After only grinding the pavement for 13800 miles,it was loaded onto a trailor and brought to N.J. for some needed maintenance to the carb and fuel delivery systems.All her filters and fluids were changed and updated as needed.Other than that all her original equiptment is still in place and operating in top form.All the exsisting interior parts were cleaned and detailed and she is ready for her new home.Shw will live a long life from here forward with minimal service and maintenance.

Mods for “Keeper”

The carburator was removed and rebuilt with factory spec parts,re-installed with new filters and vacuum lines where needed.PVC filters,air filter,oil filter were all replaced with factory spec parts.Anti freeze was flushed,all radiator parts cleaned and fluids replaced with fact spec fluids.Other than that the underhood was cleaned and left in the shape it was found,no removing or repainting any of the original workings under the hood.Numbers matching EVERYTHING!!! Runs and drives as new with the exception of the steel belted tires that have a rougher ride that the radials we are used to today,however removing the pristine tires seemd to take away from the cars 1976 appearance.The floors,trunkfloors,the unibody,rockers and all underneath panels are not undercoated and barely painted and may have some slight surface rust,NO ROT NO HOLES NO BODY OR UNDERPANEL REPLACEMENT EVER AND NONE NEEDED PERIOD.Some touchup paint may be required in areas where the paint has worn away,other than that ALL ORIGINAL PAINT AND BODY PANELS IN BETTER THAN AVERAGE CONDITION.She is a time capsule and a great piece of automobile history,because most of this era Camaros that are still around are simply a pile of rust.If you have a daughter or wife that you want to put in a strong,sturdy secure old car,THIS IS IT.If you want to beef up this 305 and still have a fast numbers matching car,I am including the 3 piece rear spoiler and the working Air Induction hood scoop with the sale.I have not installed these pieces to keep this car as original as possible..SOLD IT SOLD IT SOLD IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
