opinions / suggestions on a LT1 that's been parked in Vancouver, BC for 8 years

Hey guys,

Haven't been active with camaro's at all in the last 7-8 years due to leaving the country for work / family life, etc...

Kept my 1995 Camaro parked in Vancouver with plans on getting back to it eventually. But it's now becoming increasingly difficult due to Strata bylaws, etc... I need to do something with it :(

It's been in an underground air conditioned parking garage with a high quality car cover.

I'm currently living on the far end of the country in Newfoundland so anything I do has to be done remotely so it's a bit of a pain.

I have several options and would love to hear any opinions/thoughts:

1) Sell the car as it is - is this even possible? is there a market for a car that has sat for 7/8 years?

2) Get the car road worthy and sell it in Vancouver - Does anyone know of a trustworthy local place I could get this done at? I would have to have it towed there and then towed somewhere else while it is forsale

3) Ship the car home to me, with a stop at Davenport Motorsports to have it gone through and made road worthy (fun fact, the second last picture below is of the same car on Davenports Dyno way back in 1999)

So I guess my real questions are is there a market for selling the car in Vancouver, BC and would anyone guess on a value that would get it sold?

Thanks everyone!


Here's some info I had put together back in 2007 when I thought about selling it - but I just parked it instead as I couldn't bring myself to part with it.

Hey guys,

Very sad to see my car go, but its time to get something a little more practical for me and my wife. This is our only car, so it doesn't really make sense anymore.

I've been slowly turning this into a road racing style car so you can see most of the mods are suspension related. About the only thing its missing suspension wise is a great set of springs. If the car doesn't sell, i'll be ordering them in a few months once they are available again (Strano springs).

Let me know if you have any questions! More info and pictures below.

Thanks for looking,


Year: 1995
Make: Camaro
Model: Z-28
Milage: 150,000 km's (100,000 km's on engine & 60,000 km's on transmission)

I've had this car for 10 years now. I puchased it used @ 40,000 km's back in '97 and i've put 110,000 km's on it in the past 10 years. As you can see, i don't drive alot, and in the past 5-6 years i've only been putting about 5-6,000 km's on it each year.

Car has dyno'd 267 rwhp and 315 lb/tq a few years ago and ran 13.6's @ 102 in calgary's shitty air. It should make another 15-20 hp now, and run high 12's @ 106 or so here @ sea level.

Engine: LT1 V8, 350 corvette engine
Transmission: 6 speed

Over all shape: 6-7/10
Desription: The car has scratchs, and a small dent from a hit and run a little awhile ago (this will be fixed via ICBC).
The biggest issue is the front bumper cover. It is cracked in several places and is missing some paint. I have another bumper cover that I was prepping for paint, but honestly it doesn' really bother me that much so i never finished.

When clean, it still looks great to me, but then i'm more about performance then looks, so the scratches don't really bother me
