Story of the last 3rd Gen Camaro

This 1992 Chevrolet Camaro was the last 1992 Camaro that rolled off of the assembly line in Van Nuys, CA before the assembly plant was closed.

Very cool. I loved that body style,even if the fit & finish was horrible. My ex-friend had a '91 1LE. He beat the shit out of that poor car :( . 1992 does not seem that long ago, I was 20 . Still a lot man,I guess it was .

125 miles on it and in storage. I wonder what the car with that history is worth?

The guy who bought it lives 45 minutes from me. Here is a link to a thread where he talks about the car.
http://www.thirdgen.org/techboard/hi...-nuys-car.html

This one has a link to the website for the car and some posts from him about the cars options. Like why the wheels don't have red between the spokes.
