The Legend Well Live On!
Presenting, my '84 Z-28
In August of 2002, my Camaro has not been driven due to a spun bearing. 6/27/04 (almost 2 years later) marked the beginning of a large project to make my Z28 road worthy again! Visit Project Rebirth!
See March of 2010 - Strut Tower Recovery in the Project Rebirth section!

I'm dedicating this site to my pride and joy, my sweet '84 Z-28. You can count on stopping by and once in a while seeing a neat new mini-restore project (usually after it's been completed). In the short time that I've owned this car, it's been through Hell and back to tell the tale. The car and I were involved in an accident that should've totalled it back in January of '99 (that was a MAJOR restore project).
Big thing to learn quick about me. I'm not a motor head (I learn as I come by information). By hobby and career, I'm a computer tech, not a mechanic. I drive a car (such as my Z-28) because I like how it looks and how it feels to drive. I'm a hardcore 3rd gen F-body fan (hey, that's why I had my beauty repaired and not junked). I believe a good 3rd Gen F-body is MORE then a nice piece of transportation. For a true 3rd Gen F-body fan, it's a way of life and pride of owning one. As Pontiac says "It's Driving Excitement"!!

I bought my Camaro for $1,500 in March of '98 (my senior year of high school). But the funny part is, I bought my Z-28 from the first police officer who ever wrote me a ticket (and no, it wasn't a speeding ticket). I admit it, this car has become my life's obession. 3rd Gen F-bodies were my dream cars and now I own one. Currently, I am into re-detailing, touch up work and appearance modifications to my car (I enjoy that kind of work). Even though I just had a body shop repair the quarter pannel and repaint the whole car, their are some areas not done to my satisfaction. Once I have a garage of my own, I plan on eventually stripping it done myself and once again hitting it with some fresh paint . But that's not for a long time down the road.
