This was a fun car. Hugger Orange, strong 350 motor, two speed PowerGlide. This is after a wreck on the Gulf freeway caused by a guy in a Porsche cutting a woman off who then lost control. Trashed the front-end. The rusted one is a car I bought to cannibalize. Don’t recall what I did with it when done… These pictures were taken in the late 80s.
And, man, yeah, check out those OP shorts… wow.
This was a 1971 Camaro with a tight LT-1 350ci, Turbo 350 engine. Had been damaged when the guy drove it into a ditch. My mother bought and this is the result of many new body parts and nice Midnight Black catalyzed enamel paint job. It was wet sanded and painted 3 times. No orange peel – slick as glass.
I loved this car. Especially after the rebuild. These pictures were taken around 1985.
It was a 1980 anemic 305 Corvette (still plenty of fun) that I put a rebuilt 350ci motor in. Built the motor to the old LT-1 specs using a 4 bolt main truck block in my garage on some cold winter nights in Abilene, TX while stationed there. Used a Holley carb and Edelbrock manifold and cam. I kept the original ‘Vette exhaust as it sounded nice and rich. Was great fun to drive and race.
The brown body color images are before the new paint job, which was Porsche Guards Red. The body was very straight after all the work filling the low spots. Had to sell it due to divorce… someone must of had some fun with it. Wonder where it is today? Probably in a junk yard.
This was my fathers car for 30 years. Fun to mess with. Brother in law did the paint job.
