About “85 camaro”

I got the car on 5-23-2008 with a gm 350 and a 700r4. I then pulled the motor and put in a 383 stoker I took out the 700r4 and in the middle of building a th350 for the car. I got the 383 from my best friend’s brother who shortly after lost his life in a hunting accident. R.I.P Josh

On 5-26-08 the car took first place in the best unfinished at the Oconto Falls Memorial day Show and Shine

About “Turbo”

1.8L turbo with 85k miles. I bought this GLI in March of 2012. I replaced all the gaskets and installed an AEM Cold Air Intake. The paint was rough, and probably never waxed. I did a complete paint resto to bring back the shine. There's not a swirl or blemish on the paint now. More to come!
