Congrats on your 85 Camaro, my parents found an 84 Camaro Z28 for 400 dollars, and bought it for me. I started a thread for it too. Yours is in great condition though, lucky for you.

get a photobucket account and host your pics from there instead of attaching them all here.

Nice find!
A 25 year old car that looks that good AND runs is not something you see all the time.
A little work and you'll be turning heads when you take it out.

Congrats man!

Third gens seem to have a crazy tendancy to make people fall in love with them. When I first saw the 86 IROC that I ended up buying, I was sure I wouldn't like it. I wasn't too impressed with the looks, and it didn't seem to be as powerful as what I wanted - in fact, it wasn't even as powerful as the 2000 V6 camaro that I had test drove a few days before.

But the moment I got in that car, I was hooked.

Congrats on your "new' Camaro. I agree that it is in great condition and a great buy. Here's an idea: Send an email to John Schnatter of Papa John's and tell him your story. I'd bet he'd give you a free pizza. (Of course you would have to drive to the store in your new Camaro to claim it.)

Nice first car.

Save your pennies and you can do an LSX/6 speed swap later on down the road, that would make a sick sleeper. That thing probably only weighs like 3000lbs too.
