Re: Anyone from the Interior of BC?

This old girl was destined for the crusher. It had a 305 with a cracked block that has already been pulled. I'm in the process (when I have time) of dropping a carbed 350 out of a 79 half ton Chev. Once it's running I'll drive it as is for the summer, then paint it and redo the interior this winter.

Re: Anyone from the Interior of BC?

This will be my third Camaro. I restored a 73 RS when I was 14, drove it for a few summers when I finished it when I was 18, then sold it. I had an 81 z28, which was one of my favourite cars growing up, however I really wanted a t-top 4 speed. Mine was auto and slicktop. This one is an 87. Besides being dirty from living under a tree for several years, it has NO rust, and a couple of small dents on the fenders. The seats are under seat covers, and are immaculate, as is the carpet...just dirty. These pictures are from after I pulled it out of the trees and gave it a good vacuuming to get rid of all of the pine needles, pine cones and sticks.

Re: Anyone from the Interior of BC?

I was living in west kelowna for a while, absolutely love Kelowna!!! Can't wait to move back, unfortunately gotta grad in Victoria, where the family is.... My buddy Mikey is in West Kelown or West Bank (haha I still prefer the name West Bank) owns a slew of vehicles! He used to own a 1987 GTA with the Digital Dash and the 700r4 tranny in gunmetal color, unfortunately a drunk driver wrote off that and his 41 international pannel truck with a 350...... He now owns an 89 formula in a really nice red color, it has matching gfx and a decent sound system as well as nice wheels and a couple more nice interior pieces. I have a silver 89 GTA with a nice black stripe along the top of the body line before the sail pannel its hard to explain but its nice. I'm sure I might see some of your rides in August or over the next year or two! Chris

Re: Anyone from the Interior of BC?

Hey BC guys, Kelowna here! I'm trying to find an ss fiberglass hood for my 91z28. Do any of you guys know where I could track one down? So far the only Canadian place I have found one is camaro depot . All the places I've check out of the states want an arm and a leg and your first born child for shipping. Any help would be great! Thanks!

right on! I Ended up sidelining the '86 (turned out to just be a sport coupe) and I picked up a true '87 Z-28 T-top. It's currently at the shop getting some metal work done to remove the horrible cancer... and install CE sub frame connectors!
After that, I am slowly going to work on the drivetrain. trying to decide to spend my tax refund on motor/trans, or paint.

Re: Anyone from the Interior of BC?

Hey crafty_z28... Well I've always had a particular order to restoring. That's drivetrain, paint then interior unless the interior is absolutely bagged. Lol! It always kills me if I can't drive it. Mines put away for the winter right now and I'm already missing it. Mid March I figure I'll put it back on the road.

Re: Anyone from the Interior of BC?

yea it's a tough call. I'm not going to hardcore with this build, I was kinda thinking of leaving it in primer until I get my garage finished to paint in. And I know how you feel. I want to just drive this thing again soo bad!

Re: Anyone from the Interior of BC?

anyone who needs to ship to canada should try a letterlock service. they charge a MINIMAL fee ( honestly its miniscule, and tops out at i think $25 for something that needs to be put on a pallet) then you just hop on over the boder with your buddies and pick it up

Re: Anyone from the Interior of BC?

I realize it's been nearly two decades since the first post on this thread; but I live in Terrace BC. (Six hours from Prince George)
I have an iroc z28 with a Hot cammed 305, 5-speed non-world class Borg Warner T5. I have never actually drove my camaro yet and I'm looking forward to driving it this summer as I am 17 and have only drove my 90 chev pick up and a few other vehicles into the shop. I did drive my Iroc once tho a few days ago. I bought it for $3000 early 2015. And I have been working on it since. The new 305 and a newer tranny. I have a lowering kit for it but I'd rather learn to drive it first. As it is standard and it's a car. I had a parts car that I stripped completely. Do I have a few parts kicking around. I'm interested in chatting with the people that started this post aswell as others. I am an enthusiast when it comes to wrenching, spinning tires, racing, and just driving.

Right on. My camaro is in overhaul mode right now. I sold of the drive train. I'm building a forged 370 LS with a 80mm turbo. I'm just saving some cash for a Dart LS next block and 6 bolt heads. Backed with a 4l80e and quick performance 9" rear. So I'm gonna be down for a bit yet

Re: Anyone from the Interior of BC?

I haven't been down to the races in a couple years now, haven't done much to the red car really. Probably won't for a bit still, I'm restoring the 78 now and I only tackle one project at a time ahha.
