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!
My dream has always to own a Smokey and the Bandit T/A. I bought this T/A in 2004 with 20,000 miles on it. My cousin and I kept noticing that something was missing... The Screaming Chicken graphic. Thanks to Phoenix Graphics I bought the 77 Bandit graphics and as you see the rest is history. I had the hood Bird put on professionally and my cousin and myself did the rest. As far as I know it is the only on in the US.
Stock 305tpi with 700r4 tranny with 3.23 rear. puts out 200hp 300tq. 0-60 is probaly somewhere in the 7's and quarter in low-mid 15's with top speed of 130
It has an LS-1 Special edition Corvette motor in it and the WS-6 handling package. It is a beast!!! and it gets 24 miles to the gallon. As close as I can figure it has about 380 horses. Top speed is probably 170-180. I have had it to 150+ and had to back it down.
