Drag Racing

My first foray into drag racing was with a tired out 1985 Camaro that I bought from an associate for 800 dollars.  The car barely ran and frankly driving it from Washington DC to my home in Manassas in rush hour traffic was quite a thrill.  The car was on its last legs.   Over time I tried just about everything to make it better.  Up until getting into this project, the biggest thing I had done to a car was changing fluids, filters and spark plugs.

Later on, I purchased a 1978 Camaro with no engine or transmission for 700 dollars.  Looking back I probably paid too much but I wanted it badly because I liked the way it looked.
