The New Guy

Hey whats going on I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm from Miami, FL
and I am a third gen lover. I love the body style and the history of the third Gen. I had an 1987 Z28 with an 1989 Ls1 5.7 TPi 350 that I loved. I sold it after I crashed the rear end in a highway hydroplain accident.

I was going to fix it with the money I saved in Iraq but everyone told me to just buy a "new" car because its not going to break down on me. Well unfortunatly I listened to them and I ended up buying a 2000 jeep in 2003 "NEW" right?...not. I paid 5K down and was paying 320 a month for it (and yes it did break down on me). It was a nice Grand Cherokee but I often imagine what my Camaro would have been like had I put that 5K into it instead. Anyways I sold that Camaro for $500 bucks one of the biggest mistake of my life!

Well I guess I am going through my "quarter life" crises because I finally had enough of the Jeep and the monthly payments and got rid of it to buy a lovely 19 year old RS!? ( I know not an Iroc ) Camaro with very important...T-Tops (got to have T-Tops).

I called her Betsy after the machine gun I carried in Iraq, but was thinking of calling her the TheBlueArrow. I don't know maybe that sounds to Corney ( I am kinda corny). What do you think?

So far Betsy/TheBlueArrow has broken down on me 4 times and I have had to push start it about 10 times. You know what I still love her and in the end she is just a machine that needs a lot of tender love and care from me. Like my girlfriend except she is not a machine ( I think ).

Betsy/BlueArrow


Things I have Fixed on Betsy/BlueArrow
0. She Cost.............................................$ 2200
1. Fuel Pump (plus some extra stuff).......... .$110
2. Clutch Set ..........................................$99
3. Clutch Fork..........................................$80
4. Battery........................................... ....$75
5. Starter........................................... ....$59

Crusing tops off hearing the rumble of that V8 (fill in th blank)

Thanks for reading and I really like a lot of the Camaro's I have seen so far.
With that I want to give a shout out to Sinister ( you have one of the nicest 3rd Gens I have ever seen) Great job very clean.
