I thought only mine rattled like crazy.

I agree about the 4th Gens but I liked the 3rds

He said "original" 11 times...I know that I probably should have included "stock" in the count, but I can't bring myself to watch the video again, no matter how "wicked awesome" that Camaro is. LOL

Truth on rattles, t-top leaks, issues, etc., but give me a gift of $50k and I'll go buy 3-5 perfect thirdgens (or one sixth gen 'vette) long before I'd ever consider a fifthgen. And hey, it's a real f-body. No offense

My car is 25 years old now and doesn't leak and doesn't rattle! I just drove the car 3k miles on the Hot Rod Power Tour and the only rattle I had were the washers on the sway bar endlinks when I hit a bump. That's how I knew my bushings weren't there anymore. Replaced the bushings and in Alabama and the car rode smooth and quiet the rest of the way.

What I don't understand is all the comments about rattles. That means something is loose! Tighten it up, insulate the pieces, etc and the car will be quiet again. I have had them in my Monte Carlo and Silverado also. Not anymore though.

This guy is an idiot and I think he said original more than 11 times, but I can't watch it again to count. The exhaust is definitely not original!!

What are you guys talking about? My 86, which is not in very pristine condition at the moment, doesn't squeak, rattle, or have leaks in the T-Tops or eat up anything (besides gas ). The motor for the rear hatch even works too.

I've been driving it for about 3/4 of a year, and it has been just sitting around for about 4 or 5. All I've done to it is a standard engine/transmission checkup, fixed a couple of problems in the rear end and it was good to go. Been running like a champ ever since.

As for the IROC in the video; DO WANT!

He told me that was the best damn answer he ever heard.

I guess I was one of the lucky ones. My 87, which I still have, I bought new and put 200k miles on with the original 2.8/5-speed never rattled, leaked or chewed up parts. It hit 212k in 98 when I pulled the eng & trans and swapped in a 400 sbc & M22 muncie trans. The condition you get any used car is all dependent on how it was taken care of by the previous owner(s).

I owned a 1985 TPI IROC-Z and a 1989 5.7 IROC and both were great cars for the time. The style still rocks today!
