Ebay find...Pretty nice Z28 I'd say

There's a few things I don't like, but this car is pretty sick all-in-all. It's in Denver, Colorado. Not a bad find for $17,000.

It sounds nice, but the stickers have to go, the tach has to go, and the price is too high.

I like the look but the engine could be cleaned up alot, Whats wrong with a aftermarket tach what if you want to spin it past 7k?

it was nice, until they raped it and stole its heart and soul, and replaced it with a 383 with a cc305, and then dont shut up about how FAST it is

I agree dangalla, as per the mention a few things I don't like. I've always liked the forgeline rs wheels (discontinued) and the blue top is kind of neat.

Someone could easily clean the car up, and I'm not a fan of the boasting by the seller. Not a good way to sell a car really, because you always think the exact opposite.

I was trying to be sarcastic about the price, just forgot the appropriate smiley. Wait for it...

That just happened...

The wheels and decals would have to go. Otherwise, it would be a good car for someone looking for something modded up.

That seller should spend more time cleaning the interior of that car and less putting together such rediculously long ebay pages. 22 photos of the exterior and 3 crappy ones of the motor? I cant even tell if it has headers. That car ain't goin nowhere for 17 grand
Nice install on that msd box too

Not impressed either. "built for as a blower motor" but it doesn't have one so what's the point. So basically it's just a plain Camaro with a 383. I guess that will make my 396 worth $30,000.

Atleast it's not a stock Toyota Supra (no turbo) going for +27,000 with high mileage to boot.

I like the blue top. That's pretty nice. I'd pay 18k just for the top.

I don't know what you guys are griping about. Inflation.

Msd location.

I,m wondering how does that hood closes w/ that Msd box installed there and the hokey wiring,dirty motor,etc is just ridiculous.Also we could do w/o his hype and commentary about some of those so-called stock vehicles from the 1960,s.

I was wondering that too as I struggled to find a spot for my Mallory box. The MSD is smaller though a little bit so maybe that was how he got it tucked in there.

It needs the rigged up MSD box to start the car, because of the "high" 10.0:1 CR? How do the stock 10.7:1 engines crank on the stock coil box? That is just waiting to have a burned through wire. Could they have found a worse place to mount the box? The car needs to have the stickers removed, new wheels put on, and paint a stripe down the center of the car. Oh, and remove the blue top, and put a black one on.
