Vintage car

Koen Devenny, Staffer

While most kids want the newest and more advanced car, senior Jesse Denicola has always admired older sports cars and now drives a 1992 Z28 Camero 25th. He says, “I’ve wanted this car for a long time. I’ve always wanted to own an old school classic car. I searched for about a year, kept looking and finally found this gem. The car has a 5.7 liter 350 small block.” Although it’s vintage, Jesse’s car is packed with mods that he put in by himself, such as “Msd coil packs, one chamber exhaust, cat[alytic converter] removed, biking coil over, cold air intake, new gauges, BM sequential shifter, cold air intake, spark plugs, UMI control arms front and rear and vented rotors mild cam,” along with many other more minor modifications. In the one and a half years Jesse has had his car, it has proved very reliable. He exclaimed, “the car had made me so happy! Sometimes [she] dies on me but she never [quite gives out]. It has made me learn so much about engineering and the works of a car and engine.” Sometimes newer isnt always better because Jesse’s car has proved more reliable then many brand new cars, as it rarely has problems and when it does, he can easily fix them alone with his knowledge about cars.
