This is my 1997 Chevy Camaro Z28 30th. When I bought this car I was actually not into cars at all, I had no intentions to modify this car at all. I have owned this car since Decmber 5th of 2005. In the last year I have put 315 miles on her by taking her to car shows, and cruise nights. All the modifications were done by me, and by the help of a family friend who works on cars, and who is currently restoring a 52 chevy pickup into a hotrod. The car came from AutoExtocia in Ohio. I paid 9k for this car, it had 68,200 on it and now it is at 73,489. My furture plans are to put possibley a cam in this car with a full kit from Thunder Racing. I have done a rear seat delete cause I like to only carry one passenger at a time. I wash my car always by hand and try to in the cool shade. When I am not driving it, it sits in my garage with a car cover over her at all times. From the first week following December first my car goes into storage until April 3rd which is my b-day. I dynoed my car stock at Dynosport of Lincoln, NE and it did 245 and 270. Once the long tube headers were installed by me, I re-dyoned and it jumped to 266 and 294.
It is an automatic with the all-powerful 5.7 liter LT1 engine! 350 cubic inches of displacement.
