The "Better Off Dead" Camaro

I just ran into this. This was one of my favorite movies when I was younger. I had it recorded on a VHS and would watch it all the time. Running into this website makes me want to buy the movie on DVD.

First gen Camaros are so sweet.

This guys journey is pretty cool and I am glad he went to the extent that he did to share.

Title is misleading isn't it? When I ran into the site I didnt realize they where talking about the movie.

I love seeing frame-off restorations. Like most car-buffs, my dream is to transform a clunker into a dreamy show car with a frame-off restoration.

hell, it may be my turd-gen vert, since probably noone has ever bother with a third-gen. hehe

Awesome find… That has got to be one of my all time favorites… Nice to see the car is still alive.

I might have found my new Maiden Voyage song…

I listened to that a few times and began thinking the same thing! It is very nice to see it's still alive. That was my favorite part(s) of the movie. Time to go and download a song!!

So bad to the bone sampled this song or vice versa?

"I can make love to ya girrrrrrrrl. In 5 minutes time." That's a short time. Hot damn. Nowadays foreplay lasts at least twice as long. wtf?

Great site. I spoke with the guy who located and restored the car back when he started that site years ago. Very helpful and provided me with a ton of underbody pics while we were looking to have our floors rebuilt

Great movie - I want my $2.00

Just the site of that Camaro and the song together give me the goosebumps. Oooh, I love it...wish I had one of my own.
