If it sat outside, then I would think twice about the Camaro. The question to ask yourself is, are you getting into another fixer upper that needs a ton of work?

I would stay with the BMW
It was stored in a storage unit and is kept at his parents house (they own it) in the summer.

I was told to post here by pinky

I vote camaro....as long as it gets an LT1 put in. Don't bother otherwise - the 305 is best used as a boat anchor. They're hella nice looking cars.

A modded bimmer would be more unique I think. After seeing that video I'd stick with the B. Plus I'm not a big 305 fan (I'm assuming the L03 is a 305?)
Yep, more confirmation of my redneck status. I woulld much prefer having a Camaro over a Beamer. Just because I prefer Camaros.
Oh don't worry, I had a Firebird Formula, not much better on the Redneck scale.

Now that I know for sure it is the 305 TBI, and an auto to boot, I would stick with the BMW.

Well if anything, the Camaro will just get a 350 with the TBI and manifold swapped onto it along with a fresh set of headers.

I figured thats the cheapest route I can go powerwise. Beside, TBI engines have excellent torque, that'* why the GM trucks were so popular in the 90'*.

My vote stays the same, everyone and their dog has a souped-up "tree-fiddy." Don't see many older bimmers that can put up a good fight (compared to a fast car, not my slow one...haha)

Here'* the official plan -

Shave the throttle shafts and shave lip off of TBI, Injector spacer, TB spacer. coil, wires, plugs, cap, rotor, advance timing, K&N air cleaner open element, remove air system, muffler, oxygen sensor, fuel filter, brakes, tires, fix common temp gauge problem, and polish the TBI.

Later on the 305 block will be replaced with a 350 block and heads

The 350 block and heads will get the 305'* intake and TBI, drive accesories, and a nice set of ceramic coated headers.
