I finally got a timeslip wih a 12

I screwed the pooch on the launch but the car pulls good with the new gear.




Still a lot of room for driver improvement.

Paul at VisualFX in Orange Park did the paint. Eddie at Fleming Auto Body does some really good paint work as well.

The UPS man brought me a box full of goodies today from Jannety Racing.

3 bolt Cam, Valve springs, trunion upgrade, Melling oil pump, Katech C5R timing chain and an SLP underdrive pulley and belts.

Jim Hartley of Hartley Automotive (aka Jhart711) installed the cam and all the supporting goodies this week. I cleaned the car up today and got the obligatory exhaust video made. Sounds good too.

Can't wait to get it to the track to see how it runs with the new cam.

Since I've almost finished my overall plans for the Camaro, I decided it was time to get back to the Monte Carlo. Ran across a deal on a 496 big block and a TH400 trans with a 4000 stall converter. I got it sitting between the frame rails yesterday. A little clean up and some fresh paint is the next item on the agenda.

I finally took the stock spoiler off the Camao and put on the GM Dovetail.

Now the car looks like it actually has a spoiler on it.

I got a little carried away on the cleanup for the Monte's big block. I decided to swap the cast iron heads out for these.

I bought an ACS trunk liner at Camarofest. Today I sanded it down and painted it black. Tomorrow I'll attempt to tape up some flames and paint it silver. Saturday I'll tape up the silver and paint it black again and clear it.

I hope to have it done in time for a First Coast Camaro club meet on Sunday.

I got the silver portion of the trunk liner painted. Decided doing flames was beyond my skills so I went without them.

Also installed the tinted LED backup lights and Technostalgia tails I got at camarofest along with the ZL1 rear diffuser I've been putting off doing.

Took the car down to Palm Beach last weekend for a track night with TCCC5.



Here's my best time.
