3rd gen Barn find....

Hi there.... I'm new to the Forum, and am currently working on returning my Mothers Camaro to driving condition. Mom's old, and doesn't drive anymore, so I offered my services on resurrecting her '83 Z/28. Shortly after buying this car in 1983, she decided it was a pain for her to get in and out of, so she didn't drive it much.... In fact the car has not seen the road since 1997, and that was merely for an emissions test, to keep it licensed. The car currently has not been licensed since then, and has spent all of it's life in a garage, except when it was out accumulating it's 20,000 original miles! The car still sports it's original Goodyear Tires, and is completely original except the battery. As you'll see in these pictures, the car has some dust, and Cobwebs on it, but I'm sure it will clean up just fine......

Very nice and original, CoupedUp. Nice to see an intact Cross Fire setup -- the first fuel injected V8 Camaro!

Thanks.... It's pretty dirty, and has some cobwebs right now, but after I get it out, and cleaned up, I'll post some new pics. I remember driving this car in the eighties, and it was a lot of fun! It encouraged me to go out and get one in 85. I purchased a '85 F-41 Camaro, and loved driving it. After putting 217,000 miles on it, I sold it to some guys from New Zealand, where it now resides.... I just hope sitting has not taken it's toll on this one......

As a proud father, I felt it only fair to let the boy remember his first car for the rest of his life and love it like mine did.

Here is his 92 Camaro RS....

Very nice, One-Bad-SS. Sure don't see many SLP ZR1 wheels with those large hubs.

Well, if we're talking about good eyes, I notice the IROC hood & grill/foglights
