New to Camaros.net

Hello everyone, My name is Mike, and I'm active duty Air Force stationed at Cannon AFB, Nm. I am trading a 73 K5 Blazer for a 79 camaro with a 454/TH400 in it on saturday. I can't wait to get the car and start driving the $#!t out of it.

Welcome Mike - sounds like it'll be a cool ride. Oh, and be prepared, folks will ask you for pictures of your new Camaro, probably even before you've picked it up!

Welcome Mike. Good luck on the trade. I would have kept the K-5. Is it true Cannon is not at the end of the world, but you can see it from there?

Thanks for the welcomes, I'll do my best to get pics as soon as I can. Doug G mine has a 6" Pro Comp lift with 38.5" TSL Super Swampers, 454/TH350 in it. It's a pretty awesome ride, I just want something fast.

Man that brings back memories

I had a built-up 400SBC in mine with 4.56's....fast wasn't an issue for it's size (could spin all 4) but the Camaro should be faster being 1000# + lighter.

I got in too much trouble with mine and the Judge red flagged my registration....so I parted her out ....

Re: New to Camaros.net

Haha, I gotcha. Still don't know if I'd have been able to get rid of something I built just because I rubbed the right people the wrong way.

13 Fix-it tickets in 4 months or so and the biggie....Materially altering vehicle after inspection...Fine $2000 and 1 year max. Wasn't worth fighting to me....ended up with 3 yrs. probation

Fun while it lasted.... 3yrs. of mudding, a number of rears, a few trannys, 1 motor, and 1 transfer case.
