About “96 camaro”

I bought on 8/10/08 payed $4500 with a 130000 miles lt1 V8 auto. It was my daily driver during spring summer and fall. Until the spring on 2010 when the oil pump went 148000 miles, pulled the motor out. Well since the motor is out its time for some upgrades. In the summer of 2011 was sick of rebuilding transmission so i did a t56 sway and was it worth it! nothings more cooler that shifting throw gears on a z28 camaro !..!
check out the video of my burnout

About “The Driver”

This is the " Black or Maroon, NO T-TOPS " driver. See story about the Aerocoupe. I am currently in the middle of complete dis-assembly.. getting ready for complete body and paint. Car will be painted white again with the original stripes and decals. I haven't driven this car for 8 or 9 years so I am looking forward to getting it finished and driving it again - if I can get it away from the wife LOL.
