It's unfortunate because I would have plenty time to get all the things done to make it livable and reliable if I had space. The GN really gets in the way of space consuming projects since it's a garage queen and I only have two spaces. With that said, I'd rather spend the rest of the nice summer/fall days getting GN parts out for ceramic/powder coating before Nats and storage. I'll have all winter to blow the Camaro apart again.

I'm kind of in the same boat garage wise with only space for two the GN and the Sky it doesn't leave much room. And then the silver Regal LS, the White GS and the Lacrosse all in the driveway then the Rainier in the street, it's musical cars when I need to work on one.

Yesterday I gave the tech inspectors one less reason to kick me off the track. It wasn't the highest on the list of priorities, but it's one less thing to worry about nonetheless.

Well that doesn't look right, does it? I guess the reason my clutch wouldn't disengage is a bit simpler than I thought. I can finally bang gears! This is after saying "screw it" though. Other odd damage includes both return springs for the clutch and brake pedals being out of place. The hydraulic pressure still pushes both pedals back, but in the event of a blow out I will only get one good push out of the pedal which is especially scary for the brakes. Luckily with it being a manual I can still engine brake in that situation. I will fix this over the winter when I pull the dash out.

With the help of my girlfriend, I opened up the bumper for some more air flow to my intercooler. I'm hoping this will reduce the chance of KR, but I'll have to fill it in with some sort of mesh. The gaping hole looks really bad from any other angle!

Any chance your gonna make BG?
I will for sure be there, but more than likely in my GN with a for sale sign in the window. I have a couple "excuses" lol 1.) The Camaro needs a better tune before I start beating on it at the racetrack. I'm putting that off until after I get the cankcase pressure under control and the rear main seal replaced. 2.) I sold my truck, and I don't want to beat on car that has to get me home from another state! Fingers crossed that I'll get the Camaro down there next year.
