1983 Camaro Z28 Crossfire 305 — I loved the look of this car. The 83 Z28 was sleek and angular. Later models lost the hard lines that made this model look good. This car also handled very well. It took corners well, without a lot of slop, and at high speeds, the car was planted and stable. Where this car missed was performance and quality. The 305 V8 was weak, and gas mileage was horrible. The T-tops leaked constantly, and started to rattle after a year of ownership. The back seats were an unpleasant place to spend time, because it was cramped, and the huge b pillar blocked any outside view.

Z28 — this is a 83 z28 with a 305 5 speed standard. runs well but isnt the fastest. so far i have rewired the whole car, put the battery in the trunk, refinished the rims, tinted the rear window, installed alarm and electric door and trunk, installed 2 12s and all alpine speakers, fiber glass rear sub finisher,electric fans, and new shocks and struts. also ive put on a victor jr intake, crane cam, headers, 3" exhaust. i still have some parts to install wich i have already this includes poly bushing kit, cener force clutch, holly carb, edelbrock fuel pump, proform distributor, and a 350 with 10:1 compression. as it is now it will crack a donut on dry payvement easy

Cons

not a family car

1983 Camaro Z28 — i love the car, but its older and requires maintainence, and that requires money. what do you do. for a 305, it squaks the tires in third, but its no rocket by any means. still a great looking car even by todays standards. by one and you ll see. theyre value will only go up.

rear wheel drive--needed tires, gas guzzler

My First Car — best deal for $350 when I got it at 15. One helluva way to learn with blind spots but fun to run--still willing to fix the v6 with a complete overhaiul

This Car Is Bad Ass And Everything About It!! Well Besides Gas Milage! — its just the best car to have. performance on it is better than the old ones. i recently put a new engine in it, also a new transmission. clucth. and also gauges. so its just a nice car to own.
