Great job, can't wait till I get home and can join all the fun.

You know I thought so too, but talking to Ted from Jenetty he said no he wants the tube in there, I don't understand why. It is an open breather. I originally had it blanked off at the valve cover passenger side and plugged in the intake tube.

When I get my new valve covers I won't have a breather anyway. Looking at katech carbon fiber covers.

Mike- no diff v6-v8. The record of most miles- V6 (Jason).

Scott- Thanks. Get napkin (for drooling) and see pics of older Gen.

Jason- as mentioned on FB, sorry about the damage. Also wish we had a pool we cool put your 76 away and keep it in the family.

Bob- Yes, its great to have the right tool for the job, IF you can find it when you need it.
Bob- the filter – one of the main reasons I bought my Impala, as being plagued from allergies- the best thing ever. It IS wise to change it, especially those that have their car sit outside and drive in the rain. These filters can get moldy which is especially bad in the winter pushing the spores thru with heat(er). Many other reasons to change it too.

Krusher- still loving the cleanup work. Your breather is redundant to your ai/manifold tube-but looks cool. I put mine on at shows. If your breather is the traditional one way valved (out to in)-I’d keep your tube also for sure. If it is two way, you could ditch the tube for a cleaner look (although some some maf metering loss). Hope to see the whole thing sometime.

Rick- thanks for the meet and review of the new ‘red air pump’. Was good to meet your son finally.

Ryan / Clint- way to go and take care of another one of us. Congrats on the ZL1 gain too.

Russ- good to hear from you- was hoping the beast wasn’t keeping you locked in the garage- looks great (FB).

Nsane- posting dirty pictures – shame shame- hope you didn’t put the shovel away already. I thought it was spring.


Take care and safe driving,
Tim

Nice times Tim! Bring home one of those Buicks for me...lovely ladies that they are!

To anyone going to the ISLE Show today in Waterloo, good luck. I am still knee deep in my projects at my parent's house!

Krusher: Great looking engine cleanup! These things have valve covers? Who knew!

Goldknight: Welcome and I love your car!

I have had warnings on when I had for (my daughter) an 2005 Colbalt SS, and on my 2006 Mustang -but when the warnings were offered, I was getting $95 tickets for window tint.

I've since sold the Cobalt, and see it around town with the tinted tail lights still also the window tint is off.

Both these cars, and my 67 Camaro the tint is painted on, we added black with-in clear coat to do this. Premier Auto in NL did this for me.

Have not done this to my 2010 Camaro ....yet

Well I polished my car up today for the first time this spring. She shines so nice. Ashen Grey Metallic is a deep shine color, I LOVES IT!!!! Unfortunately, that deep shine also shows every little dent (from Hail) that there is. I stopped in and got my car estimated. Now I want everyone to hold their jaws closed cause this one is a whopper........$4800! The good news it that it will be fixed by Thursday this week. This is the best picture I have that actually shows the dents.

Damn, that sucks jason. Is $4800 what you have to pay?

Ken, sorry I didn't make it. With the weather as terrible as it was, I figured it was going to rain on Sunday too so I never even cleaned the car up. Congrats on the hardware.

Krusher, that looks awesome. Really cleans it up with what you did.

Interesting weekend for me. Went to my dads place to put some rotors and brakes on my impala as it was vibrating when braking. Saved alot of money doing it myself. Was going to help my dad do some work on his old 86 ram charger when the thing caught on fire. It had been running rough like it was having some misfires. Appears that the fuel had spit out of the carbeurator and maybe hit a wire that sparked the fire. Thankfully we got it extinguished and out of the garage.

Rest of this month is busy with the wifes and little sisters graduation parties/ceremony and training here at work so I won't be doing any car shows until June hopefully.

No $4800 (minus my deductible) is what Progressive paid out. Looks like I am 0 for 2 on new cars and saving them from damage. I need to get my other car sold so I can finish my truck and make it my daily driver/work vehicle.

Oh I do have one more bit of good news; as I was detailing my car last night I made sure to look over the gill area really well. I can say without a doubt that the GM splashguards have done a great job keeping my gills safe and sound from chips. 9,000 miles through sand, snow, and grime not one spec of anything wrong.

EDIT: Stopped off to check the progress on my car and speak with the technician. They have the trunk lid and hood off. A few panels had already been done. The tech is a nice guy, he and I talked awhile. Anyway while my car was in for work I wanted them to remove the front emblem. They didn't want to fight it as they weren't sure if they were going to break the grill trying to take the emblem off. (They aren't going to remove the front fascia.) So I grabbed a screw driver and started at it myself since I had removed the emblem before on my 2011. They handed be a panel removing tool and I took off the emblem. I love the front now. Clean and mean looking.

Boy, it's a good thing I'm keeping this forum going. I got my car back tonight, looks AMAZING! The people at Progressive and Qwik-way Dent repair did an excellent job taking care of me. I will get pictures up tomorrow. It was raining most of the evening and I was working on my 76.

I don't have a 5th Gen, ZL1, or new Z28 like I wanted, but... I did score a 2000 Camaro SS!!!

It's got 500 RWHP(according to previous owner), T-Tops, Vortec Supercharger, 3800 Stall Kit, SLP Intake, Hotchkiss Suspension Parts, Hooker Long Tube Ceramic Coated Headers, GMMG Exhaust, C5 Rims- 9" up front, 10.5" on the rear, Nitto Extreme Contact Tires, and only 29k miles!!!

I scored this beauty for $7500, not all cash. Bartered a little too.
Wow! Great score! Looks great and that price (with the bartering) is amazing! Hope to see you on the road soon.

Welcome Rand! I myself just joined the forum a few weeks ago. I've found a wealth of knowledge and a great and active community here. That 4th gen looks pretty awesome. Sounds like you got a great deal on it too, which makes it even better.

Working a Firehouse #9 today on the NE side. Drove the Camaro to work today and saw a black vert by Atkins, silver with hockey stripes on Blair's Ferry and a yellow on Boyson. Good day to be out. Hope to see some of you at events soon...
