New 5.7 on the block ~

Finally...FINALLY...

just bought a red 1987 5.7 Iroc-Z.
the lady and I picked it up Tuesday.
spent an hour at DMV Wednesday.
it's now registered and insurance ready. title is in the mail.
(had to do change of ownership paper)
I'll post pics as soon as I figure out how to via iPhone.
paid 3200, my mechanic said it was a steal considering it's condition.
full diagnostic coming on Monday.
can't wait to fix her up ^.^

first song played on the two hour long drive home: Tears Don't Fall, Bullet For My Valentine.
after about the third song I listened to the engine all the way
home. sounds too beautiful to ignore..

ive always loved the third gen, just hope I can get a loan so I can fix it up enough to be a good daily driver. it's so badass >.<
the brakes suck and it's idling really rough..(methodically vibrating) dumped oil in it and cleaned out the coolant holder and dumped more coolant in..also replaced the sludge of break fluid that was left in it..nothing has changed so we'll see what my mechanic says Monday/tuesday

The Iroc came with the decals on the side of car that said "Iroc". Unless someone peeled them off its probably just a z28 but still a great car.

The Iroc was the only Camaro that came with the 350 in it, but it wasnt the only Camaro that year, since they still made the Z28 that year.

The only way to tell if its a TRUE Iroc 350 is a the vin it has to read the 8 in the 8th digit spot.

and it does have an "8" in the 8th digit. I knew to look for that over the "f" seeing as how I really didn't want a 305...

Then you have a True IROC, there is no other way you can get a 350 camaro with out having an Iroc for that year. lol

I know I get that crap all the time with mine since half the people dont think that you could get the 350 IRoc with t-tops lol


Now if it was a Manual transmission & you said it was a 350 I would call BS on you, Because NONE were made with that combo

Here is my old 1988 Iroc. This pic was taken in 1994. This car was stolen and the cops found it totally stripped of parts. What fun and great memories in that car!

Funny, never heard of that guy and had to google him. I didn't have a better pic just of the car but I assure you I look different 17 years later. Good luck fixing up your camaro.
