Cool Drag Camaro.. Part Deux

out with the old 2nd gen, in with the new 3rd gen.

just wanted to share some pics of the new project


painted this car months ago, it was a junkyard gem, hacked and barely running. the wing is FAA approved lol.


the new hood and scoop makes room for cool guages, i didn't paint the hood, its not glossy enough


a/c and blower was ripped out along with the factory EFI computer and harness. the original pulley system is used.


the interior (and exterior) was pretty trashed along with a busted windshield and no tail lights. there was wires hanging all over the place and an oil guage and switch for the engine fan. i fixed the interior and wiring thinking it was going on the street. the a/c fan switch now operates the engine fan through the old relay (which wasn't used)... now it looks like the roll cage is going in and i'm going to tear out the interior and make it all race/track only.

its so hard to decide what to do with a car like this when there is no dragstrip at home. if i build it, will it come? LOL

Did you splatter the red paint under the hood?
BTW, what's the rule on scoops for street cars?

yeah, i repainted the entire bay with black, then the red was splashed on with a brush. everything was removed. its rustoleum. it fades but the engine will come in and out and it can be touched up easy enough.

i'm not abreast with the exact wording and interpretation but that scoop is definately not street legal, it blocks too much view... we have the other hood that i painted, it wouldn't be too difficult to unbolt the wing, change intake and put the stock hood (and rims) on for a safety as soon as you get the sticker put it all back. LOL

lol @ sickness...

its just a late 350 (1-piece main) bored .60 over. it has pop up pistons, iron heads with 2.02 valves .565 lift and compression is in the 13:1 range. there is hardly any vacuum at idle for the brake booster. i'll be putting in the line lock in the next couple days.

the trans in there now is the 700R4. we haven't put the th400 w/brake in it yet. most likely it will go in when the interior gets ripped out and the roll cage goes in. the rear diff also needs to be changed to a locker.

Man that looks so good.

What's to become of the 2gen? Restorable to street car, or race-only?

I don't know the person personally, but there's a 3rd gen Camaro drag car that ran while the track was still open...one of the stickers on the side was of our church ("New Hope Racing")... I don't know if our pastor is aware of it. But it looks cool too.

I wonder if you could take the car out on cruise nights...even with that big ol' scoop (I remember some guys running tunnel-ram manifolds and stacks or the Mr. Gasket bug catcher scoops on their cars that looked taller than your hood scoop.) Hm.

thanks... well, yeah, that was kinda the original plan to take it cruising. but the plan keeps changing daily.. especially since friday when we found the registration to be $750. lol.

the 2nd gen was sold to a guy in Maui not long ago less the motor and trans. i think he ran a 12.0 with his set up the last time i talked to him. you can see pics of it and it should have a new paint job-- www.islandracer.com there's links to MRP photos on the main page.

i don't really remember the new hope camaro. one of our crew members might because they kept tabs on the other racers

^^ hahaha... both kind hookers are great.

hey G... Hi Tech Coatings is a sponsor, they have coated some headers for us and other stuff on the Boneshaker. it holds up very well. http://www.hi-techcoatings.com/

i've tried that can paint many times and it can burn off right away right out of the head on the turns.

try using a really thick coat and warm the engine a few times to help cure it before you get the engine hot.

I wonder if your neighbors would be mad if we cruised around the neighborhood in it.
