68 camaro

My brother has this 68 Camaro for some time now and has been working on the body for about two years. He had replaced both rear 1/4 panels, trunk panel,rear package tray panel, roof patch jobs, front floor panels and other miscellaneous rust holes. I put the car together about 6 years ago. Put a roller 350 with vortec heads double springs and an Isky camshaft. Built 350 trans with 2400 stall and 10 bolt rear end with 3:73 gears. Manual rack and pinion, I did it steering column. My brother is getting ready to put the front sheet metal back on for proper fitment and adjustments. Here the car.

Cruise Night 9/21/2011

We had our cruise night this evening, and it was a small turn out but the people were great and had a good time. Thanks again to all that made it out and are part of our cruise. We do have some bad and good news too. We were asked not to congregate at In and Out any more due to other groups on other days of the week that are causing some problems. So now we are moving the cruise to "Don Chente's Mexican Restaurant" on Oxnard blvd. next to the chevron station corner to Vineyard ave. We talked to the owner and he gave us the green light for the cruise, same 3rd Wednesday same time. Here's some photos.. enjoy.

This is the new hot spot..

Here we are at the new spot. Cool...

Saturday Down The PCH

This Saturday my compadre Randy was celebrating his 30th birthday. He wanted to take a cruise with his best friends down the PCH in our cars so that's what we did. We took of from his house and headed down Saviers rd. to Channel Islands rd. to the PCH and down to Neptune's Net. The weather was nice and abit sunny. I took some video of the cruise too. We had a caravan of cars from Randy's 58 Impala, Carlos 49 Chevy coupe, Ricks 68 Impala, Lolo's 65 Impala, Angels 50 Chevy Fleet line and my 36 Ford pick up. We had a few beers and drove back home to get ready for the party. Here's the footage.

Here we are parked at Neptune's

Here's a roll call video.

We have a Lambo in our cruise now.

Engine Work 355ci.

Got home from work and realized I haven't gotten any work done on the 355ci. for the 65 chevelle. So today my wife and I decided to go in the garage for a few hours to get this engine back in soon.

Here I am torquing down the head in sequence.

Here I'm installing the new fluid dampener.

Here I'm adjusting the lifter pre-load.

Here's the finished product.
Time to get the rest of the top-end done.
