Drug my '79 Z28 out of the corner of the shop the other day. I've had it for over 16 years and it's been sitting in my shop for 15 years now. It's a long story. This is my second Z28. I had a '78 about 25 years ago. Sold it 'cuz I needed $$ to move. Sold it to a stripper. She paid cash.

I had a '12 Challenger R/T with Track Pack and Super Track Pack until about a year and a half ago. I miss having a hot rod. Sooooo, it's time to get the old Camaro on the street again.

If it don't go, chrome it!

Glad you got it out! What all are your plans for it?

The basics. Get it running in good order and then paint and interior. Already getting all my wish lists filled up at my favorite parts sites. Now all I gotta do is come up with a few $K. Lol!

Not gonna get all crazy with the engine. Pretty sure the one in it is crap after sitting for over 15 years. It was a good engine at one time. I'll run it and see what happens though. I've got a good core out of an '80 'Vette sitting on the shop floor. I'm kind of kicking around rebuilding that and putting it in. Again, nothing crazy in fact, probably build it to stock specs.. I was thinking kind of an auto-cross kind of build actually. More of a handler instead of drag car. Basically what it was meant to be.

If it don't go, chrome it!
