Stock for stock, you can tell by the front end of the car.

The 1993-1997 Z28, and 1996-97 SS, have 4 small rectangular head lights and may also have 2 small rectangular fog lights. These are the LT1 cars.

The 1998-2002 Z28 and SS cars have 2 head lights and 2 small round driving lights. These are the LS1 cars.

That's quite a variation in car options. Do you have a particular budget and goal for the car?

Like anything else, it's best to stick with the newest you can afford. While the LS1 debuted in 1998 for the Camaro, there were improvements over the years with 2001 having the last change. With that said, 2002 is the last year for that generation, so I'd obviously try and find a 2002 (hell, that's actually what I personally did ).

If you don't care to modify it, then it's even more preferable to stick with the newer ones. If you want to go nuts or whatever with modifications, then it's not such a big deal to go older.

The best LS1 website is www.ls1tech.com. www.camaroz28.com used to be the best LT1 site, but I haven't been on there in many, many years.

Honestly, there is a KILLER deal here in the classifieds: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=310033

I go through Blair a lot, I work for UP. So if you see an arm waving out of a train going through it most likely will be me! I see a SGM parked outside of the bar that is across the street from Valmont Industries in Valley. Will keep my eyes peeled for yours.

Ya I just talked to them about it and it looks like the carfax shows it was either a leased car or a loan car like a rental for awhile.

Is 9500 a bad price?

Z28 was aesthetically the same as the base model -- 16" wheels, regular hood and spoiler. SS received 17" wheels, scoop on the hood, and pedestal spoiler.

There were very minor suspension and exhaust differences, but nothing significant, and they are things that the majority of people replace via the aftermarket, anyway.

Power ratings on paper were 310hp Z28 (01/02) and 325hp SS (01/02). In reality, they all made the same 350hp that the same LS1 made in the Corvette.

The B4C was the police package car and it has all the go fast goodness we want in a Camaro without the frills we don't. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevrolet_Camaro_B4C

They can usually be picked up for cheap because they're ex-government cars. Most were likely well-maintained by municipalities; however, they will have high miles and saw a life on the go. They're great platforms if one wants to build a race car, though.

With that said, they weren't available with t-tops.

Also keep in mind that they were only significantly different in the third gen years. 4th gen B4C's were just a Z28 with low options (but not as spartan as a 1LE of the same vintage).

As to the specific cars you were looking at:

The red convertible Z28 at Sid Dillon Chevrolet has an SS hood with the scoop and an RS rear wing. Shouldn't be a big deal unless they did a crappy job with the install, particularly the rear wing. Looking at the lower door sills and rear valance panel of the car, it appears that at some point the rest of the RS body kit was installed, but it's been taken off for some reason. Did they decide that they didn't like the look or was there damage and they removed it instead of replacing it all? Throw in the mismatched SS hood, and I would suspect an accident at some point.

The tires are Hankooks, which means that the previouos owner went cheap on replacement rubber. That can be somewhat understandable, given that the OEM Goodyears can run $200 apiece, but there are a lot of quality tire choices between Goodyear and Hankook. What else did he cheap out on over the years?
