I call this Project 91
This is a 91 RS Camaro that I picked up from a friend for free. The car wouldn't start, and there was obviously some cosmetic fixes that needed to be adressed. When we got the car in the garage we immediately began troubleshooting why the car wouldn't start. Our experiments confirmed that the motor was, unfortunately, blown.
So my plan is: To put a 350 tbi in it to make it driveable while i save up to make the car beastly. My future plans: A LQ9 (6 liter iron block) boared out to a 418, and then installing a twin turbo set up. I am replacing the front fenders, getting a cowl hood, and replacing the bumper, windshield, and dash. Going to change the rims, get larger tires in the back. The paint will be white.
Picture of the 91 and the 2000 camaro me and my boyfriend currently own.
Interior is gray, and in actually really great shape.
My roof; definitely needs to be buffed and painted!
Passenger side of the car
Picture of the engine bay, and the blown motor
Bumper, that needs to be replaced.
Well, thats all the pictures I have available. It's not the prettiest car in the world, but all cars are worth something. Wish me luck, i have alot of work on my hands! I will post pictures as the project gains ground.Thanks for looking,

Looks like an empty canvas to me. I've seen some of those 90's Camero's turn out crazy. Good luck, looking forward to future modsR8 Back?
My pics are the lower ones.

That's exactly what I thought when I found it. Thank you

I want that car!!! can't find a halfway decent one for a reasonable price where I'm at. People around here think just because it starts its worth a fortune.

wow, really? It's hard to sell them out here... You can usually find them for about 1,700 out here... But I feel very lucky that I got it for free (Well, five dollars technically, you can't write 'free' on a bill of sale...)

Yea Its hard to find one here! I'm leaning more toward a '86 monte carlo now though

Oh that's awesome! I have always been a fan of Monte Carlos, I was thinking about getting an 02 for a daily driver.. or a blazer, I doubt they do very good in the snow. My next project might end up being a 75 Chevy Laguna. Not too sure though

Eh, it's not too bad. It just looks bad in the picture. All that really needs to be replaced is the front fenders and the bumper, and it's missing a piece of the stock spoiler. But other then that, the car really doesn't have any dents, dings, or rust. It's actually in really good shape. After a paint job, no one will ever be able to tell it sat for six years!

A car from 1991 is considered a project car now? I feel offended!

Looks like it'll be a good one. I love project threads, update it more!
I've always wanted to pick up a rusted out YJ Wrangler and make a project out of it. I'll probably do it after college.Your heart is a muscle the size of your fist.
Keep on loving, keep on fighting, and hold on for your life.
