1995 Camaro Z28 LT4 stroker/6 Spd Convertible. Black, DK Charcoal Leather interior. 147K miles.

The original owner was a Texas Attorney who had offices in Houston and San Antonio, so many of those miles are 'commute' miles between the two offices. The second owner purchased it to make it into a fun track/nice day driving car, and did most of the mods you will see below. Shortly after finishing it he took a C5 Z06 around MSR-H, and decided that was the route he wanted to go.

We purchased the car in 2006 with 136K on the clock, to soothe my wife's mid-life-crisis. She drove it mostly on good winter days here usually with the top down. So it's had about 11K miles put on it under our ownership in 9 years. In those 9 years, all I've had to do that was serious was put a new clutch in it, and get a better tune.

My wife doesn't drive it much anymore, and we have many, many other projects to care for so we'd like to thin the herd a bit, and make room in the shop, so we're offering this one up for sale.

The car is equipped as follows:

Engine:
381 LT4 Stroker motor (motor and heads freshened about 11,800 miles ago) Other than long-tubes and a CC206 Cam, that's about all it needs. Runs very strong. It puts 408 HP to the wheels with the 'hot' ECU in it (tuned by G-Force in Friendswood, TX). Getting it to pass emissions with that ECU got to be problematic, so I had PCMs-For-Less create me an 'emissions' ECU. It runs pretty well on that ECU, so that's what is in it now. The car will come with both ECUs.

Stock six speed, short throw Hurst shifter. The clutch disk flung all the friction material off of it a couple of years ago so it has a new Centerforce clutch and PP with new pilot bearing and resurfaced flywheel. That project can be found on this forum elsewhere.

The car has Pacesetter Long tube headers and 3 inch Flowmaster exhaust. I have three different cats for it, one that is just a shell, another high-flow cat to replace the shell, and a stock-looking cat that I purchased a couple of years ago to make it pass inspections. All will go with the car.

Suspension/Drivetrain:

The car has several suspension mods. They include:

Subframe connectors - not sure of the brand, there's a mix of Hotchkis, Spohn and BMR parts under it.

Eibach/Bilstein "Tuned" suspension. The car is about 1.5" lower than stock. I did replace the rear springs with my Spohn weight jackers off our Firebird, after I replaced those with other parts. The adjuster tool is in the console.

Hotchkiss upper and lower control arms

Spohn adjustable rod-end/rod-end panhard bar. This one is off the Firebird after we installed the Watts link in it.

Super heavy Torque Arm/Driveshaft loop combo. I think this one is a BMR unit. It's kind of noisy in reverse, but okay otherwise.

Aftermarket Power Steering Cooler

Stock diif, 3.42 Posi

Brakes:
Powerslot rotors, hawk pads Front. Stock brakes rear. (have hawk pads for the rear but car stops very well as it is.)

The car will come with the parts to do a LS front brake conversion (spindles/calipers/rotors), but we never installed them.

The car sits on factory Z28 wheels, but will come with 17 X 9.5 New Motorsport (Z06) wheels with new Nitto Xtreme tires

Interior:

Bolt in Roll Bar. Unfortunately, when they installed the roll bar, they put the back seat seat back down, so it's there until someone removes the roll bar and sets it back up. We never needed the back seats. The pups don't care.

I found a guy who had some factory seats built with cut-outs for racing harnesses. I have those installed. They work fine for autocross. We also have the original black leather seats that will come with the car.

The car needs a new top. The back window seal has separated at the bottom, and some of the stitching is unravelling, so it's best to drive the car on good, dry days, with the top down, until you get to your destination. Other than that, and the factory paint could stand to be freshened up that's about all the car needs.

We'd like to get $5500 OBO for the car.

We have found a new home for the Z. A friend who knew of the car from the previous owner was interested in it, and came down to have a look yesterday. They'll probably pick the car and the spare parts up next weekend, depending on weather, but consider this car sold. Bittersweet, but we hope the new owners enjoy it as much as we have.

I think she got them at our local parts house. It's her car, so she can put all the floor mats in it she wants.

But go ahead, challenge her about them! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/2thumbs.gif)

Bringing this one back up. We haven't sold it yet, but really haven't tried much. It just passed emissions inspection for Texas. This will be the last year in Texas for emissions for this thing. If we have it this time next year, we'll wait until January 2020 to get the safety inspection only.

$5500 OBO. It starts and runs great, is fun to drive, but we just don't drive it much anymore. We have NOT replaced the top. If we do, the price will reflect that.

We found new owners for the car this last weekend. Sad to see it go, but good to see it'll be enjoyed.

The car rolled down the driveway with the new owner behind the wheel for the last time Sunday. It was a fun ride, and I think the new owner will really enjoy it. Sad to see it go, but we weren't using it, and can use the space in the shop. Bon Voyage Z28!
