If you thought this was just another sleepy, garden-variety Camaro, guess again. No, this one packs a thoroughly upgraded 5.0-liter V8 under the hood, a 5-speed gearbox, and an amazing interior that surely doesn''t look 30 years old. In short, you won''t find this much bright red performance for less money anywhere. Introduced in 1982, the third-generation Camaro was nothing short of revolutionary. Long, low, and wide, it was as thorough a reinvention of the pony car as the world had seen since the first Mustang hit the scene in 1964. The Z/28 remained the top performer, and this time they were serious about going around corners as well as drag strip domination. This one, finished in sizzling bright red, looks like a rolling speeding ticket. Yes, the IROC hood was added later, but who doesn''t dig the black inserts designed to emulate the great muscle cars of the ''60s? Add in a subtle ducktail spoiler, a minimum of graphics and badging (just a Z/28 badge on each rocker), and those big three-element taillights and you have an icon that will always earn a respectful nod from the guy in the car next to you. GM built the Camaro to perform from Day One, and that includes a very aggressive interior that''s built around the driver. One glance inside this F-body and you''ll be scratching your head wondering how anything 30 years old could look this good. The deeply bolstered buckets feature stylish cloth inserts that help hold you in place during cornering and don''t look at all dated like a lot of cars of the period. The leather-wrapped wheel and giant cue ball shifter make the interface enjoyable, and you got a full complement of analog gauges in your 1984 Z/28, including a speedometer with two needles reading in both MPH and KPH simultaneously. The original ''80s sound system is long gone, replaced by a newer AM/FM/CD stereo, and there are few finer automotive experiences that can rival a sunny day in your V8-powered coupe with wide-open T-tops. Even the storage area is in remarkably well-preserved condition. One glance under the hood and you''ll realize that this is no wheezing 1980s mouse motor, but a nicely built 305 cubic inch V8 that sports a long list of upgrades. Most notable is the Edelbrock 4-barrel carb and intake up top, replacing the restrictive factory setup. A lot of time went into detailing the engine bay as well, including traditional Chevy Orange on the block and heads, a bunch of chrome dress-up gear, and an HEI ignition system. The exhaust still has a high-flow catalytic converter feeding a transverse Flowmaster muffler, so it sounds fantastic while keeping everything on the up-and-up. The chassis is super clean, and the Camaro was built to handle with that trick torque arm rear suspension that really plants the rear tires. Stock Z/28 wheels were restored to match the car and wear 225/60/15 performance radials. Just a neat old V8 Camaro that runs great and demands respect on the road, all for a bargain price.
