Welcome to our new home on the interwebs. We have a lot of cool stuff planned. More cool stuff than previously planed because we’ll will it to be. Come along for the ride.
Enough of that. How about a 1991 Camaro Z28? Some interesting changes for the Chevy pony car as it was ending the 3rd generation by 1992. The IROC was gone as Chevrolet did not renew their contract with the aforementioned race series. The Z28 was back as the top dog. The Z28 facelift included new ground effects, new non-functional hood extractors, a new wheel design, also a new high-rise rear spoiler. An attractive update that didn’t deviate too much from previous years, many mistakenly refer to the ’91 - ‘92 Z28 as IROC. Beneath the skin were some important changes thanks to lessons learned engineering the 4th generation Camaro. Using different seam sealers, structural adhesives and body assembly techniques made for a quieter car with less squeaks and rattles.
A nice example is available at eBay with no reserve. It has the muscular feeling optional 350cid V8 making 245hp, sadly a smog like 305 V8 was still standard on Z28. A four-speed auto shifts the gears, it appears to have the optional rear disc brakes*. No T-tops…boo-hiss. It is A/C equipped for hot summer cruising. Some 95K miles on the odometer. Despite the dealer’s claims of gorgeous and well maintained, immaculate is a stretch. The interior looks worn as the mileage would suggest. The dealer mentions dings on what it describes as a clean body. There appears to be some IROC looking decals on the doors. It’s a nice driver 20-footer based on the pics. This can be a fun car that has great aftermarket support. The current bid is $4.5K anything less than $9.5K would probably be a good deal. Maybe leaving enough coin in your wallet for an LS swap.
*Did the 1991 Z28 come with rear discs standard? What do you think of this ride? Drop a comment below. The Z28 sold for $5,800 not a bad deal.
