1983 Camaro Z-28 on The Auto Rotisserie with E-Z Spin (demo)

Rotisserie by Merrick Machine Company. Unbelievably accurate centering of
the vehicle's weight is possible with the adjustability built-in to The
Auto Rotisserie. For more information, call the factory at 1-800-568-7423

3rd Gen Camaro Build
A (lotta) work in progress. I started this project to swap a 191cubic inch
V6 to a 350 V8 (along with performance parts, and swapping & upgrading the
transmission) in 2009. (see modifications list below.) These are pictures
and videos as I progressed and the very first engine start and test drive.
I applied primer to protect the metal as I knew I would have to put the
project on hold, which is where it has been since. Plan to start again by
gutting & redoing the interior here in 2012.

1984 Chevrolet Camaro z/28 Project
This is the edited version of my other video. I must say I despise windows
movie maker, the song always goes out of sync when you're trying to edit.
This 1984 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is my first car.
Purchased without a motor I got a great deal. It came with relatively
fresh paint, 85iroc gfx, and almost no rust except for on the LCA's (which
i plan to replace). The body has 118k km's on it as well as the T-5
tranny. The previous owner has bought a 3" mandrel bent stainless header
back Exhaust with a cat delete. it
came with a set of hooker competition headers as well as weld draglites all
around, 215's in the front, 255's in the back.
Since i bought the car in may, '08 I've bought a '69 010 sbc longblock.
tore it all down and rebuilt it to make sure it was done right. (good
thing i did, somehow the previous owner managed to get a seed inbetween the
deck/heads.) So far the engine is rebuilt, bored .060 over with
hypereutectice pistons, a .477 lift cam with 112 LSA, '72 883 heads,
edelbrock rpm air gap intake, holley 650 dp w/ squarebore mech secondaries
and hooker headers. Nothing fancy, but as a student, cars are bloody
expensive. one day i want to built a nice all-aluminum roller 383.
As for the car, nothing much has been done to it yet, all i've done is put
new e-brake cables in. However, once the motors in and running, i'm going
to put my funds into a pile of UMI suspension stuff, such as SFC's, LCA's,
LCARB's, Adj PHB, Wonderbar, Koni Yellows all around, Eibach Pro-kit and
maybe a hurst shifter / shift knob ( i feel it gives the car a more late
60's muscle car look), and maybe some 4th gen seats and audio equipment
(since theres absolutely nothing now).
Anyways, the video's not as good as i was hoping, i was patient with movie
maker for a while, but now eventually i just gave up. would rather do it
1985 Camaro Start to Finish
This video chronicles the transformation to my wife's first car, a 1985 Camaro. She bought the
car in 1995 and when we first met she was driving it. We decided to sell
it to my brother a few years after we got married. During the summer of
2008, I reacquired the car and secretly brought it back to its original
