I like the car show sign! I need to get one put together for my car.

Also, it's nice to see another younger owner/enthusiast on Camaro5
Keep up the good work!

Congrats Jordan!! The C4 made leaps and bound in technoly improvements over the C3 which really wa still the chassis and supension of the 63 vette with little cahnges other than the body style.

There are inherent issue to be aware of, the LCD dash is prone to failure, and the rubber used on all the vacuum lines crumbles over time causing leaks, but they are still fun cars that have great handeling and decent power. The 87 does NOT have the horrible failure prone opti-spark the later LT1/LT4 has (never ending costly issues).

Have fun, be safe!!!!! and enjoy. If you have any specifc questions on any of the systems, just PM me. Glad to help.

Enjoy!!!

Thank you Tracy, sadly my LCD dash is already going out... on the Speedo side It will have to last as long as it can. Because I am just going to switch to an actual gauge set up. And the second owner who was here in Colorado also replaced a lot of rubber hoses. So just about ever rubber hose is new. The plastic ones haven't been replaced at all, and I need a new line for my AC and a new AC compressor. Probably gonna pick those up on mamotorworks.com. Otherwise only mods I have planned later are a LS swap
