Cruising (OK, not really cruising but racing off to dinner) south of the 101 Freeway we encountered an automotive echo of the fairly recent past. We’re safely guessing it’s an ’84 – ’87 Chevy Camaro Z28. That means it’s equipped with, at the very least, a 305 cubic inch V8 which was, in a way, de-tuned for the times. Still if you can find a 4-speed equipped version you’ll be sitting pretty on the collector market in fairly short order. Unless, of course, you drive it hard and have actual fun with it.
This view confirms it’s a for-real Z28 high performance model; note that dual exhaust action. Lookin’ mighty butch, n’est-ce pas?
We got pretty much the same “at speed” kind of shot when we captured this first generation (’68 – ’69?) Camaro a while back. Is that a pack of Luckies rolled up in your sleeve?
How about this ’73 Type LT? That bumper could double as a battering ram but overall we find the whole package kind of ersatz Ferrari funky. Yeah, we can dig it.
This flat black ’92 RS has a super sinister affect so it could be driven by a bad guy or a bad good guy (Vin Diesel?) either ironically or in refreshing bad taste. This is where “tough” is spell “tuff”.
What about the Ferrari-esque silhouette of this ’72 Camaro? This particular car is, perhaps, a bit tired in the shine department but the shape is as vital today as it was over 40 years ago.
This ’69 coupe reflects the resurgence of AC/DC insofar as “Black Is Back” endures. The dog dish hubcaps give this example an outlaw gloss. Practice this line: “Which one of you is man enough to take me on?”
FeralCars Field Scout Matthew Reader documented this ’76 Type LT in the wild. We’ve never been all partial to vinyl roofs, especially the swoopy kind, and can do without those cheesy wheels BUT, damn, it’s a fall harvest themed car if ever there was one.
When the Camaro was first introduced Chevy rented a volcano and let it rip. The spawn of all this magma is a SS350 performance model. That announcer could follow you around telling everybody how “with it” you really are. That’s a great value.
We kind of like this ’83 Z28 so why not add it to your personal fleet? If you do succeed in snagging it you might consider changing your name to Vinny. Entirely up to you.
