    1980 Camaro Z28 first start

      Hi everyone-
           Just thought I would share the first start of my 1980 Camaro Z28.  Its not a spectacular video, but its all I got right now and I will get a better one once the car is driving.  This is what I have worked on since 1999. Enjoy

          LOL, not even one person looked at this thread, that is funny.  I guess most people on a site like this do not even have a learners permit yet.

              It's more because the OT doesn't really care for these videos I guess. Or someone spammed your video down to the 2nd page really quickly

                Nice car bud.  How much power would you estimate it at?  Right now I have a Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited because I needed something for snow, but at the beginning of next summer before my senior year, I plan to buy a 98 - 02 Camaro SS.  Insurance is going to eat all of my money though =/.  ha

                  Wow, nice. You've been working on it for twelve years?!

                    Yes 12 years and about 15-16k invested.  It takes alot of time when you work full time, own a home, and are married lol.   The engine itself was Dyno'd at 405hp and 436tq.  I bought the engine at www.dereberyperformance.com in Texas for 2990 plus shipping.  I had it shipped to me in Chicago last fall.  Thanks for the comments guys, I am hoping Staind sees this as he was wanting to see my car when I first started it.   Thanks again.
