Some of you may know about have seen my new camaro. My new V6 camaro. And by new I mean 98, but hey, its the newest vehicle ive owned so far. Its a piece, but it has T-tops, which automatically makes it better than everything. Plans for the car is to fix it, Guy i got it from drove it through his garage door, and then decide if I want to sell it as a stock V6 or build the V6 and keep it, or do a V8 swap.

This is the car:




Yesterday I started work on the first issue. The key was stuck in the ignition. On sunday it decided it wanted to be stuck in the on position after tye drove it. I blame him, lol. So yeasterday I started tearing apart the column after ordering a new lock cylinder.
This is how it looks now:

Got this out:


Then while bored due to lack of new part I decided to take the center console out.
And I found this!:


$6.99 bitches.

So yeah, stay tuned, because even though its not a racecar, its the first car ive ever put money into that is/was actually sort of kinda worth putting money into. And Im excited about that.

p.s. sorry for lil pictures. I dont own a camera and there from my phone

Brilliant, but the change doesn't add up to $6.99. Razz
J/K I know the feeling and good job by the way.

I will save you a lot of thinking. Fix it up some and flip it for a profit. DO NOT attempt to build that 6´r. DO NOT attempt to do a v-8 swap. Both of those things are nothing but a huge waste of time and money. Put only the money into it that you absolutley have to and not a cent more. Then sell it. I say this because I love you. Carry on.

Im definateley leaning twards fixing it and selling it. the fenders, bumper cover and door that i need will be about 500. Plus some minor mechanicals and such (needs shocks bad) and ill be into it for about 1200 minus paint. It blue books for 3500 so after paint im thinking ill be able to make a decent profit selling to some highschool kid looking for a wannabe hot rod.

do not even contemplate a v8 swap. you would have more in it than if you just bought an ls1 car when your done.

So, i got bored today and decided to take a closer look at the carnage.


I think the dude gave me a line when he said he just rolled it into his garage. Stuff on the driver side is fucked. the fog light was facing the engine lol.



I found the missing piece to my driver side fender shoved up in there



The headlight frame is screwed. Im gonna try and bend it back to match the passenger side but im not sure if ill be able to.
This is how its sitting right now. Might take the fenders off tomorrow after work and then I just have to start ordering parts.


And I really like this picture even though it shows both my shit boxes on jack stands lol
