Up until this past Saturday, this Camaro hadn’t moved from this spot in over 10 years. Now, it’s finally time to give my best friend a hand at getting it back on the road. First up was pushing it out of the garage bay, then a quick Svending...

The results after an improvised foam gun, then a hand washing. The paint still needs some work, but at least we won’t be scratching the car just by looking at it now. It’s an ‘88 with the 2.8 V6; not a performance powerhouse, but it has a long and sentimental history with him.  

Other action items completed included changing the oil and filter (surprisingly, the oil didn’t look too bad other than it being very black), siphoning out 10 gallons of stale yet clear gasoline (I think my headache from the fumes is finally subsiding), and, oh yeah, pushing the car into the adjacent garage bay so we would have room to do the aforementioned work. Even with four people (one steering) it was quite a workout to get the car up the very slight incline into the bay.

Next up on the list is to try to finish going over the engine and fuel lines to get closer to turning it over... oh, and installing the new hood struts that I just ordered yesterday... that would help a lot...
