My First - it's a 67 Convertible!
Two days ago, I bought my first ever Camaro, and pretty much first ever muscle car. I did have a '76 Lemans that we put a Chevy 327 in for my first car, but that was about 25 years ago!
I'm pretty excited about the new Camaro! It has been sitting under a cover for 3-4 years, so it was somewhat of an adventure driving it home, running rough with half-flat tires.
The previous owner said it had a "crate engine" installed about 10 years ago, but gave no further details. I expected some low power Jasper truck engine. I found the receipt and googled the part number. Turns out it's a ZZ4 engine - 355hp, 405ft lb of torque! I just really, really, REALLY hope that I didn't hurt the engine on the 10 mile drive home on 3 or 4 year old oil and gas. We did pour a few gallons of fresh gas from a can he had in his shed, but still. . . I has wanted to change the oil before I drove it home but the owner didn't want jack stands sinking into his asphalt, and didn't want me doing it on the street because of the neighbors. Oh well, it's home now and I hope to get it running better.
This is going to be a lot of fun! Thanks in advance for answering the thousand questions I'll likely ask.
