I know many of you have probably seen my 2005 Mazda 6 hatchback (a special thanks to all those who voted for me to be 6OTM for August!). However, this car has always only ever been my "ricer DD." The real project car, the one that has demanded my time and money for years, is my 1996 Camaro Z28.

Well, after three long and painful years, I finally have it back on the road. So with no further ado, here it is:

I'll guess if you can get it hook with the 3600 stall converter and assuming it has a 3.42 gear, it will run a 13.25 @ 105Mph on street tires.

I did 13.86 @ 99 mph the first time I ever went down a drag strip, which was before the cam/heads/stall and before I did the torque arm or fully tubular front suspension. I'd like to think all those mods should get me into the 12s. I have 3.23s, 3.42s were in the cars with manual transmissions.
