I started autocrossing in my Dad's 4-door Dodge Dakota Sport truck, and despite the lack of performance I got hooked. A couple months after getting my license, I bought my 1987 Chevy Camaro IROC-Z. The car was really clean inside and out with only a dent in the fender and surface rust below to worry about. After one event, it became obvious how worn out the suspension components were. So... here is the list of mods that I have done in an attempt to bring the car back to its former glory.

Current Setup: stock 305TPI and 700r4 adjustable lower control arms and panhard bar lower control arm relocation brackets Koni SA's front and rear Eibach Pro-Kit springs front and rear J&M strut mounts strut tower brace 36mm front/21mm rear Lowered panhard bar subframe connectors tranny and power steering cooler aluminum driveshaft 10bolt 3.42 Torsen rear C5 front brakes LS1 rear brakes Adjustable proportioning valve 18x10.5 C5 Z06 wheels front and rear wrapped with 285/35/18 Sumitomo HTR ZIII Corbeau Forza seats (I picked up the seats, mounts, sliders and hardware for $140!) upgraded to 4th gen F-body front seat belts - rear seats and seat belts - AC - cruise debating removing radio (cant hear it to well anyway)

In progress: 383ci SBC "Monster in a Box" kit for the 700r4 tubular front bumper front air breather a few other odds and ends

I'm also happy to say that everything was bought and paid for by me, including the cost of the car. My dad was the only person to help out so far and that was as an extra pair of hands. Thanks for helping dad!

The pictures are old, but at least I finally have some pictures on here. lol

Thanks for looking, Mike

I would add pics but for some reason I can't add them from my iPod Touch and my computer is refusing to let me log onto the website.
