I thought you'd like a look at this very sharp 1980 Chevrolet Camaro Z28. It's powered by the
350 with a 4bbl, backed by a turbo350
automatic, and it only has about 19,xxx original miles. The black on
black combo sure looks mean and the car is very straight all the way
around. They just got this one in, so it could use a good detailing, but
that's about it. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from
Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011

1977 Chevrolet Camaro STK 1416 Camaro had a lot of
firsts in 1977, but only 2 of them will be mostly remembered. This was the
first year that the Camaro outsold the Mustang, and they did by over 37
thousand units. The second was the return of the world famous Z28. Of the
almost 200,000 Camaros
made, only 14,349 were a Z28. The small amount was due to the fact that you
could only purchase the Z28 the second half of 77. The Z28 was no longer a
RPO but a separate model. The Z came with a 350 CI motor that produced 185
HP matching the base Corvette HP for that year.
The red Z28 pictured above is a 2 owner car that is very nicely documented.
The car was first test drove on July 28th, 1977. The loan was approved on
the 29th, and the final purchase was complete on the 1st of august 1977.
The purchase price was $5894 and the original owner traded in a green 72
Chevelle SS, a $1,100 toward the total price. It was bought brand new at
Dana Chevrolet in South Deerfield, Mass. Don�t let the location fool you,
the car had the Ziebart undercoating applied in September of 1977 when the
car had just 2000 miles on it. The bank lien was released on April 23rd of
1979. And on November 2nd 2007 he sold the car with just over 62k miles on
The second owner has done a lot of maintenance work as well as a brand new
paint job as of June 2010 which cost over $7,000 so you know it was done
right. This is one of the best documented cars we have seen. This car came
with the 4 speed transmission along with a 3.73 posi trac rear makes it a
lot of fun to drive. The interior is mostly original and show very well.
This is a car you will be proud to take to several car shows and cruise

Limit Pushing - 1979 Z28 Camaro 0-60 Test
This was another rough video to get and something is wrong with the
speedometer and we got chased by the cop afterward....which I didn't catch
on tape......I'm sorry. However, this is one hell of a car and it really
only has a little over 26,000 miles on the original engine. The Paint job
and a new radio is the only restoration.
The 1979 Z28 Camaro:
The second generation Chevrolet Camaro was introduced in February
of 1970 and lasted until 1981. The second generation was styled after
several European car including Jaguar, Aston Martin, and Ferrari. The
second Camaro was
engineered much like the first with a unibody structure utilizing a front
subframe, A-arm and coil spring front suspension, and rear leaf springs.
Although it kept similar designs from the first generation, the second Camaro profited from a
much higher budget and was designed with higher quality parts and a better
driver experience. By the mid 1970s the Camaro grew less powerful, like
many other cars of the time, due to the tightening emissions regulations
and a fuel crisis.
The 1979 Z28s came with a front spoiler and fender flares to match the
Pontiac Trans Am, and "Z28" decals that ran from the beginning of the front
flares to the bottoms of the doors. The Z-28 model was powered by a 5.7
liter V8 engine with a 4V carb producing 175 hp and 270 ft/lbs of torque.
Sales for 1979 were the highest ever for any generation Camaro ever with a total of
