Showcase cover image for Z28

General Information

I’m the original owner, spent about 3 months of lunchtime visits to dealerships and test drives of everything from Mitsubishi 3000gt, Mustangs, Corvettes, 300zx’s before I finally settled on the Z28.

Went back and forth at the end between Corvette and Camaro.

Corvette lost because I didn’t like the digital dash and with 1 kid and another on the way, the 2 seater was about like having another motorcycle. Glad I made that decision as a Vette would have been sold long ago as the 3 kids started growing.

Kind of weird I ended up almost tossing a coin between the most and least expensive of the cars I looked at, but at the time cost wasn’t really a factor. (Wish that were still the case[emoji2])

The ability to research all ordering options and invoice prices via the internet was just becoming a thing and with a dealership and salesman that was aggressively going after internet sales, i was able to sit with him at his computer
as we selected the exact options i wanted. Wish i had gone with the 30th anniversary white and orange but wife hated it so my second choice was Sebring Silver.

148,000 miles on it now and it’s been sitting for the last few years. Interior will have to be replaced and the clearcoat is flaking off badly.

Not sure on Engine yet, that will be the first thing I do. If it seems ok, I’ll move on to suspension, then interior, then exterior.
