This Is A Beautiful Car — It has a 350 Goodwrench crate motor with 290hp, but it orignally had a 305 in it. Ha the car is kinda like a maroon but in sun light it turns kinda burnt orange looks great. The interior is all red with cloth seats, and has a 12 disc cd player in the trunk cause i like the stock look and i have a 10" subwoofer in the trunk. It doesnt have true dual but it has duals on it

First Car, Lots Or Memories, Never Sell It.............. — Ive rebuilt this car from the ground up and should hopefully have it on the road next year. It is currently running but the interior needs to be finished up and a few mechanical things need to be finished off. Recent work in 08 is emergency cable rerouting, tranny rebuild and new heater core. See just throw 100 dollar bills at it and it runs great.........=)

Simple, Fast, Fun Car From The Late 70's. — This is what being a teenager is all about. Different generations have different cars that fit this bill but this is a perennial. Put any teenage boy behind the wheel of this and they will want it. 5.7L V8, 4-speed manual transmission, power brakes, rear wheel drive with a 3.73:1 positraction rear end. Seriously? Yes! And boy does this sucker go! Still a bit before overdrives, the 4-speed was a thrill to row through. Don't wanna row through gears? Put it in 3rd and start out and do 0 to 110. That's called "tractable" kids. Alloy wheels looked sharp and it even had a tiny back seat if you wanna cram your friends in for a short trip across town. They won't wanna be stuck there for long trips however. This car was great. Fast, reliable, easy to work on, parts are cheap and plentiful. The ONLY negative was gas mileage... but face it when you have a Z/28 you know what you're getting into. This is a great car for two - using the backseat and little trunk for your road trip needs.
