T Handle

Over the weekend my boyfriend and I went back to the junk yard. My boyfriend pointed out that they had a third gen camaro that they recently added,so we walked over to check it out. It's pretty much strip,or unusable. But it did have a ground effect on passenger's side,but it wasn't the right one from my car. There was a couple of people trying to scrap what ever they can from the thrid gen camaros,kind of like ants to a picnic table! Thrid gens at a junk yard don't last long. Disappointed,I tried to see if I could find a t handle for an automatic. We found a Automatic T Style Shift Knob from a (97?) Pontiac Sunfire,and tested it and one of the junk camaros,works and shifts fine. I paid about $1.35 for it. I don't like the automatic shifter knob that's in the third gen camaro. I plan on painting it chrome,will be awhile before I can get the paint and supplies. I also want a automatic boot,but not sure what to get a camaro(82-92) automatic boot or the B&M Mega shifter boot. If I get the B&M boot, I will have to do alot of modifications since I will still use the stock shifter...I'll will have to check this with the boyfriend and see what we'll come up with,...stay tuned!

My Dream Interior

I really don't like the grey interior,or what was left in my car. Most of the carpet was strip. I really want black carpeting and black headliner. And to match the black carpeting,I want custom seat covers,Blue Insert with black Sides (for the front and rear seats.) with the headrest embroidered "Camaro" in white. I already have a Chrome, Grant steeling wheel,and want to switch out my automatic shifter knob for a "T" style shifter knob from a Firebird,and a automatic boot. I like digital gauges,I want one with blue LED lights,and the interior lights blue (lights under the console.) Also want a cool radio mount,with custom lettering "Camaro RS" illuminated with blue LED lights. Also on my list: push start up button,HD Radio(illuminated blue) and a back up cam. All this looks real nice in my head!!

Penny Pinching

It's will be awhile before I can buy some new(or used) part for my car. So,I'm cutting back my spending, buying snacks at work,I've stop buying snacks,and keeping my change. I also will be keeping Tabs on my local junk Yard,and Craigslist. I'm also going to sell some of my old and unwanted DVDs. Sorry I don't don't have much to blog about today,but my next blog will be about what kind of custom interior I want for my car.

1990 Chevrolet Camaro Sales Training Video

Look at that Camaro it's sooooo new and shiny! I wish I could pull it straight out of the video!!! But even though my favourite color is red,for some reason I wouldn't want a red car......

Custom Dream

I'll probably never have the money to do this,but dreaming is free! Up above is a poorly photo edit I did I want to get my car repainted(I think it's a metallic blue)with the stripes going down to the bumper.And want the headlight buckets painted black. I also want to do the BMW Headlight swap,and ere piece louvers. I found out how much a custom paint job would cost......$5,000 and up. So I'll just keep dreaming.

Junk Yards

...Are pretty much slim pickings. Most of the Third gen camaros are strip.But sometimes you get lucky,sorta. I managed to get 3 camaro emblems,arm rest for the driver's side,a door vent(?),a mirror for the driver side,gas cover cap,and a overhead console for T-tops.

I really thought I got lucky when I found a overhead console for a T-Top camaro. They are usually sold at a high price on ebay or some online store,but I got mines for $3.31! I thought they were rare or something,but turns out they are not,but I'm still happy I found one. Going to be hard to find the parts to it,but I'll worry about that later.Can't wait for it to be install.

This is Blueberry,Blueberry say,Hi! He's a nice looking car,a 1989 Chevy Camaro,V8,8 CYL,T-Tops. Yes I said "He". I'm a girl so I refer to my cars as males. :P This is a project that my boyfriend and I, are working on.(yes, the car is mines) I want to have Blueberry up and running soon,and I also want to get it repainted,with white stripes,and custom mods(small mods)...all on a small budget. I only have a crappy part-time job,blah but I'm grateful to have a job in this bad economy.

The previous owner,some high school kid; didn't take care of Blueberry very well...blew a hole in the engine,and the engine is unusable.Also the carpet interior and headliner was strip.He was probably racing it...and all the tires all bald,but the back tires are really bald!! I don't have to guess that he was doing burnouts in it. There are some dents in the passenger's door,and the ground effects on the passenger's side torn,dent in rear bumper,cracks on the front bumper and ground effects.

Good news is that my boyfriend is a mechanic,a master technician,and I have a engine to replace the old one. One from a 94 Corvette! :). So far I have the engine,new transmission mount,transmission shift cable,Speedometer cable. I 'm saving up for other parts so the engine can be put in,this will take awhile to save up for. Stay tuned for my next blog,thanks for reading!
