Purchased this 1973 Chevy Camaro for $1,000 back in 1985 with no interior and drivetrain when a drunk driver took out his current ride, David had to install wheels and rearend just to get it home. Later on at a Family Get Together his brothers helped him to put in a motor and a tranny.
Dave has changed many set ups on his Z/28 Camaro during the years: Dual Quad’s, Single Dominator / Nitrous Fogger, EFI Hilborn 8 Stack. Couple of 355 cube small blocks, and a 461 GM Rocket Block w/Brodix 215’s, but always with the intention to race it and drive it on the street.
Dave’s 1973 Chevy Camaro Z/28 current package is a Mason’s Racing Engines built Dart Iron Eagle Raised Deck SB 454 with Vortech V-30 94B Supercharger producing over 1000 horsepower.
