Awesome — Great car for the money. These Gen3's are sturdy/tight in handling. This one--with the 383 motor, 4-bolt main and a Tremac 5 spd thans., EdelBrock Headers, 3" exhaust pipe to Super Sport HO muffler w/ Quad SS tips, makes a big difference in power combined with that handling and improved interior comforts seen in newer cars today.

Probably One Of The Funnest Cars I Have Driven. — Off the line taken down to Cali, to get the convt. package on it. Extra $5000 for the conversion at time of purchase, not many done this way, b/c 87 was the year they brought the convt back.

Great — Quick, Powerful, 30 mpg, the most fun I've behind a wheel, my opinion is one of the best looking cars ever built, exhaust needs a little work other than that no issues yet (knock on wood) Buying another one once get some more money

Fell In Love. — I only had the car for a very short time. Insurance at that time as young as I was in that year just killed me. I had to sell the car after only about 8 or 9 months. But I would love to get my hand on one that has been taken care of. The after market mods. are limitless. So is horsepower and speed. I was A Police officer during this time period (had to resign due to a knee injury) but these are the cars that we trained in on the high speed training course. 215HP may not seem like much. But with some minor rear end changes and advance the timing a little some after market air cleaners, headers, and you had what felt like a rocketship. And really I never had any problems that kept mine in the shop. I'ts like I always say take care of your car and it will take care of you. Terry

Z-28 — Received this from my Dad, brand spanking new in 1986. It was metallic blue with grey interior. I learned to do figure-eights and doughnuts in this car -- not only in the snow but on dry pavement too. It was a blast to drive. Gas was cheap then, maybe $ 0.70 cents for each gallon.
