Hey everyone, my name is Josh. I live in Sussex County (Northern New Jersey). I'm probably pretty young (22) compared to some of you guys but I'm learning and always welcome advice.
Always loved Camaros/Trans Ams; heck I'd sum it up GM in general.
Owned at least half a dozen camaros & trans ams ranging from 84-95 from 305-468ci. All were stock when I bought them.
Daily drive a 94 z28 (auto with bolt ons).
My most recent project was a 1993 single cab short bed S10 that I finished 2 weeks ago... might be faster than any of the cars I've owned lol. Literally just got done building a 350 with vortec heads, 224/230 .502"/.510" 110 LSA and put 13 miles on it before I decided to pull the motor out to put into my brother's 92 Camaro RS (in exchange I recieved a stroker block, 383 assembly and a new set of Trick Flow 23* 195cc heads).
I've always dreamed of owning a 1969 Camaro but never seriously considered buying one (and defiantly didn't think I had the cash). Two nights ago I found one on craigslist in my price range and I figured it was going to be a complete pile of junk and require fabrication beyond my skill level... I was wrong. Even has a descent small block (gear driven 355, dart heads, mild flat tappet cam; god only knows why its got a victor jr on it). I saw timeslips for 12.8 at 108 MPH.
Car needs some minor body work/hinges/pins/trim/paint. Interior is just a dash, door & sail panels, ratchet shifter and two racing seats and nothing else (not even a radio, speakers, carpet, etc). 10 bolt posi 4.10, slapper bars & sub frame connectors. Fuel cell, electric fuel pump, manual steering rack. New floor pans, rear quarters (although the previous owner had a gun go off and hit the passenger quarter), rocker panels and a fiberglass front end.
As of last night I am the new owner of a 1969 Camaro
Oh and I do have plans for the 383 and a TH350 (2,500 rated stall) to go into this in the future.
My buddys own a 65 2 dr Nova and a 71 chevelle. They are both at about this stage in the build... think I'm on top now lol
