    then i found out he had a spare in it, full interior minus rear seats, ac, everything, and a diy fuel access door.



    j/k on the table flip. Car is mint though and rust free. Love hardtop early model 4th gens. Gonna keep the forum updated as this car has been here from the beginning, lets see what it can do in non DD setup lol.

    Nice acquisition. Good to see it stay with someone who will enjoy it.

    I sold my car in spring of 2016. Owned that thing for 15 years, and accomplished a great many things. In the end, I was glad to see the piece of shit out of my garage.

    Good looking Camaro. A turbo 3800 under 100k miles should be fun.

    95 Firebird 3.4L V6.
    5-speed. Flowmaster muffler. CAI. Underdrive crank pulley. !A/C. TB Coolant Bypass. Holley Adjustable FPR. Proshaft One-piece Aluminum Driveshaft. So it's pretty much stock.

    YOU SOLD YOUR CAR SAM????????????????????????? ah wtf man.

    Also yeah, andrew its already lost some weight and got cleaned up some. Like i've told you, its got a big diet and might see a few changes. Tubular lower front control arms and some other stuff, My car has drag specific parts that it really doesnt need and oddly enough its what the viper camaro doesnt have. so its all a win/win on parts swapping. I just need to get on it lol. But i've having a lot of fun with my 99 mustang. I just got a free turbo to slap on it from a friend in texas, free weld draglites for the front of it and those extra 325s you gave me are going on the back of it for now lol. Im working on the camaro in my spare time. Everyone hated the mustang till it did a one tire fire the whole 660....now everyone wants to see how fast it can go and how cheap. Its a fully sloppy build. Problem for me is i really hate sloppy, like i despise it.

    When i get more done to the viper camaro, ill create a build thread. Well how about we call it a revamp thread, its already built, it just needs some love.

    Oh yes. We had grown apart, in our relationship, and mutually decided to move on. A new guy owns her and will have more fun than I have in the last couple years. He may even turn it into a drift car, which I thought would be hilarious.

    Mostly I just kept looking for the benefit in having a car like that. Untouchable on the highway, but to what end? I never race. If I wanted to have a fast track car, I was at the point of needing to spend thousands of dollars to make her track worthy, but I never go there. Even when I DID make it to the track, it was once a year, maybe. So really, I just had a car just because, and I just can’t justify clogging up space for that reason. Driving isn’t so much fun for me that I need a particularly custom Camaro to do it. It sat and collected dust for about two years before I started seeing if anyone wanted it.

    I filled up the empty garage space with forging tools, a new casting furnace and other fun stuff.

    you still do the solar stuff? wife wants to put a solar panel setup on her little cabin. its a 14x28 i believe. SHe bought the harbor freight kit and it requires a batter which i got a deep cycle marine one for and a power inverter. I dont think it will be large enough once she wants ac in there.

    here is what she got, its all new to me. I just kinda remember you or someone on this forum messed with solar stuff

    I don't really do solar anymore on the installer level. I left when solar leasing became the big thing. I do a lot of energy consulting that includes solar from time to time, but it's usually on the planning side of a large commercial project.

    How much does she want to power in the cabin? 45 watts isn't much at all, even if you have a fully charged battery. It certainly isn't enough to run any air conditioner. She could power a light bulb and maybe a couple other things depending on how long she wanted to run them.

    computer, couple studio lights, 5k btu ac unit in summer, i think thats probably it. most of her stuff feeds off the computer.

    I didnt think that was enough either.

    That car was an inspiration to a lot of us back in the day. Good luck with it.
