PROJECT CAMARO

The Camaro arrived on Friday November 16, 2012 and we set to work. Interesting facts about this car:

The car is actually one of 135 factory produced 1LE 1994 Camaro's. The 1LE was an option that essentially was the factory showroom stock race car. It came with a heavy duty Oil and Power steering coolers, bigger brakes, special suspension etc. The car was originally built by Trac Motorsports to race in the Michelin Endurance Series in the mid 1990's. Over the years it passed on from owner to owner, one owner got the car back 2 or three times until November of 2012 when we rescued it from being a "rent-a-racer"!

Over the next few pages of this site I will post before and after pictures of all the work going in to restoring this once glorious Camaro!

TRIBUTE TO JASON STEVENS

The Camaro was owned at one point by a gentleman named Jason Stevens. I met Jason one cold winter when he volunteered to tow the RX7 in his enclosed trailer to and from the Canadian Motorsports Expo. I had never met Jason before and out the blue he responded to a post on a forum about needing an enclosed trailer. Jason took the time out of his schedule to drive a few hundred kilometers out of his way, not once but twice to drop off and pickup the car. Jason wouldnt accept any money for fuel, food or anything. He just said to me "the motorsport community has been good to me and this is my way of giving something back". I really enjoyed my few hours I got to spend with Jason and his Mastiff cross "Blue". Later that year I learned that Jason had decided to Grand-Am racing and bought 2 factory race car Mustangs. I also learned that Jason had cancer and got see him at Mosport during the Grand Am race in his motorhome. The cancer had taken its toll on the big man but he smiled at me and said to me "I will see you at the track real soon". I just smiled back, shook his hand and left the motorhome. I found out a few weeks later that Jason had passed away. This restoration is a small tribute to Jason and his enthusiasm for our sport!
