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!
It was in 1989 when I bought this car, it was a real sharp looking machine way back in the day...considerably new...only 4 years old at the time.
The color was Red and it had a Red/Grey interior, completely stock until the modifications started in 1991 and really haven't stopped to this day, there is always something new to do.
I fell in love with the car when the 3rd Generation Camaro first came out in 1982 and I just had to have one...but when the Camaro got some upgraded Ground F/X, Spoilers, Hood Blisters in 1991 I fell in love alot more because the cars really looked out of this world and just plain Georgeous!!!
Into the present now and you really don't see alot of these cars on the road that are in good shape anymore...only a few are around and I am proud that my car represents the beauty & lines on what a 3rd Generation Car should look like.
I have owned this car for 20 years now...I hope to have until the day that I die!
