This is not a robot ! But before my life revolved around robots, I worked on this 1984 Z28 Camaro. This was a project car that started with $500 camaro from a junkyard. My Dad had kept a 5.0L V8 engine around for years that would plug in nicely into the junker we bought. |
The goal was to get my first car running so I could go to school so I was definitely motivated for this project !
My Dad and I rented a engine hoist and changed the engine and got the car running like a champ !
But Alas, the car still looked like a junker because the interior/exterior was trashed. I went to junkyards looking for a better interior and exterior panels. When I finally found all the pieces I needed, I went to Maaco and got the thing painted !
I was definitely one of the coolest and loudest cars at school after that paint job ! But I decided the summer before college that I needed to sell the car, I sold it for $2500 to another excited high school student ! Kind of sad ending, but If I ever see that car again, I might just buy it !
