The only thing that I didn't like about my 94 z28 was the off-putting steering wheel.

You only think that because you had an automatic. A manual shift LT1 is something else entirely.

These cars especially the LS gens are loved for their very affordable hp and pretty inexpensive to modify/work on.

Such a shame you got rid of it. I think it's one of the best looking American cars ever and I'd loved it if you'd put an even more illogical sum of money to give it independent rear suspension. Perhaps you can get one again, only with the face lift and a manual box?

You had once talked about why someone might invest more in parts and repairs than an old car is worth, and mentioned emotional or sentimental value as being one reason. This Z28 underlines that precisely, and in this case it's totally justified. It is one of those cars that just screams to be driven, and once you've driven or ridden in it, you remember something like this fondly.

I disagree about the 5th Gen. It was a huge success and I think it outsold Mustang every year of its production. The 6th gen peformance wise is hands down the best Camaro ever made.

I just picked up a 2002 with a T-top in silver leather's a six banger but it's got 119 thousand miles and looks pretty cool and I'm over 65 so it's a good fit. Try a Morris Minor Woody Wagon if you like wood...I've owned two and I was going to go with yellow gold pearl...very lightly and with a jet with black fenders and yellow body and one with yellow fenders and a black body...yellow Oak wood. That way you can bet people they don't remember what color the fenders are and you always win....hehe.

I regret selling my 94 back in 2013 it had over 200k miles but still ran like a champ no matter how hard i beat it. Except the rearend i did heads and cam. I built the transmission to take the new power but the rearend grenaded lol but with the way i drove it i am surprised that's all that exploded.

So WHAT if they were “looking forward” with this thing? This is the ugliest Camaro body style of all! The 2010 and later Camaros are absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Thank God Chevy looked back to the roots of what made muscle cars desirable instead of “forward,” because the ‘93-‘02 Camaro proves that sometimes “forward” really sucks.

In my opinion the 2010 Camaro was a failure because the chassis was too heavy And the fact that it was an Australian car chassis and then given to us just like the GTO they flopped because in America we want bad ass cars not used Australian car chassis rebadged I hope that trend ends

If you ever have to do a fuel pump there is a video showing that you can cut from the top and make a little door and save yourself about 1000 bucks in labor almost anybody can do it just a quick tip if anybody ever ends up owning a 4 gen

I love that car. I had the same year same engine. Everything the same except the color. My was marron with black on top. I really miss it. That was my first car. I I had the money, I would look for it and buy it at whatever price just to get it back. I think this is one of the best Camaros. Red with black is win win. I am a fan of red Chevy vehicles. I had a Chevy S10 Xtreme. After seen this video I am really looking for a Camaro again. Is a matter of time to find it.

"It's easy to fix" "This is just a simple, bare bones vehicle. This is the last of that." -Reverse flow cooling system that MIGHT go a week without a leak -Most advanced optical distributor of its time, pain in the ass to diagnose issues -Can't change water pump without removing fans, preferably radiator too -Better not take that Opti through a car wash with undercarriage spray... Not sure how you spent $4k...just did all you did plus front&rear pads/rotors, clutch & resurfaced flywheel, rebuilt steam pipe system, flushed all fluids, rear main, and a Hurst Billet-Plus shifter to top it all off. Spent right about $1200...

98-2002 is better int and better brakes + ls1. I put lowered springs, adjustable shocks and 18's on mine and it's the best handling car I've ever driven. I'll take one of these in good shape over a 2010 every time.

What a surprise the same lame g.m. interiors remarks. As if any other car brand from 80's or 90s interiors were any better, I remember my brothers 94 mustang gt had a shit plastic interior also but nobody ever talks about them. I had a 83 mustang, I remember the honeycomb speaker grills in dash would break when you touched them.

And a Turbo 350 sadly but will a gear vendors overdrive fit on a turbo 400, where a LS1 t56 used to go. Other than that built 4l80 with 3200stall is the plan. it has a truck ECU too lmao.

I'm sorry. This car is pure shit. I owned one, along with six other Camaros from 67 to 93 (drove a 69 Z28 in high school) and the 4th gen pissed me off so bad and it cost me a lot of money in repairs. The fourth generation is the reason they killed the Camaro. It was garbage and people knew it and stopped buying it.

My son had a 2018 raptor ford to trade in w/ low miles. We drove everything. It was a blast. The Camaros, the Ford Gt500 shelby, a shelby truck, new vettes, new BMW's, hellcats etc. The Camaros are the worst of the new cars lMHO. He bought a new Ford Raptor.

Dude got a cheap ass 4th gen lol. He has the oldest model year (1993-2002) no t tops automatic and the weaker v8 in the LT1 (~275 hp) when the LS1 (~335 hp) can be had. ‘01-‘02 z28’s are where it’s at.

What? No standard traction control? No electronic steering or brakes? No computer doing everything? No radio that, when it fails, prevents the AC from working? You mean I actually have to DRIVE the vehicle! What? What a piece of junk! Whatever!!! I had a 97 SS that was an awesome vehicle!!! Got great gas mileage, had plenty of power, didn’t handle bad and looked great! Once it was out of warranty I did a 396 Lingenfelter, installed a full suspension kit from bilstein, added a x-brace from a convertible, strut tower braces and subframe connectors. After all that it was a beast!!! Walked away from many Vipers and corvettes!!!

lol me watching you shift gears in a auto Camaro knowing its electronic trans and shifting doesn't do anything. and as a Camaro fan the new one doesn't cut it because they did a terrible job of remaking a 67-69 style Camaro by putting too much rice looking parts on it
Kâzım ÇOKOĞULLU Prije 3 mjeseci
i should say the LT1 is a reliable engine if you do basic maintenance... i did spark plugs, distributor cap - rotor and water pump, and changed some radiator and heater hoses and it runs flawless. i drive it daily since its my only vehicle, and did many long night trips and never had poblems in the middle of the way... additionally 4th gen fbody owners are so helpful in the facebook groups, they share every single info they know, they helped me a lot when i have troubles. i feel proud to have a 97 z28... a great car and a great community.
