1980 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28

This is one good Looking bad to the bone in its shiny black paint, this Z28 backs up that look with a combination of performance enhancements designed into the car by the factory, as well as some nice additional engine upgrades for a bit of extra power. This is one good looking car for someone serious about driving. Check it out. Long and low describe the overall look of these second-generation Camaros. This '80 model is among the last of them produced before a redesign, and as a Z28, it incorporates all the refinements that were developed along the way that helped it earn its justified reputation as a driver's car. Features like a functional Air Induction hood that feeds cold air to the engine, side vents in the front fenders to let hot air out, and aerodynamic elements like a deep chin spoiler and full width rear spoiler to add stability at speed. The black grill that splits above and below the bumper looks extra sweet on this black car and has a Z28 badge set off on one side of it. Gray triple stripes start up front on that chin spoiler curving up as they wrap around to the front fender and continue low on the car down the side, ending in another Z28 on the door. Open the door and you will find a neat and clean black interior that has obviously been well cared for. The door panel itself accentuates the long low look of the car with long simple lines accented by a chrome strip across the top and a comfortable armrest. Have a seat in the high-backed buckets that have pleated centers and side bolster supports that are nice for spirited driving. Then reach out for the 4-spoke Z28 steering wheel which is adjustable by both tilting and telescoping so you can get it set just right for maintaining control as you stir around that white short throw shifter for the 4-speed manual transmission. Factory gauges are supplemented with Autometer gauges for oil pressure and water temp and there is a JVC head unit that is an AM/FM/CD player and is iPod compatible. Nice clean carpets tie the look together well and are protected by Z28 floor mats in the front. Pop the hood and you will find a nicely warmed-over engine nestled down in a neat and clean engine bay. There is a polished air topper that feeds fresh air from that hood scoop to a Holley 4-barrel carburetor and an Edelbrock intake manifold with Aeroquip lines getting the fuel to the carb. Chrome Moroso valve covers look great and MSD ignition assures good spark while long tube headers get the spent gasses out and sound good while doing it. Power is sent back to the 4-speed manual transmission controlled by that short throw shifter and then to the 10-bolt rear end which gets the power to the ground through 275/60R15 tires mounted on black 5-spoke wheels. 255/60R15s handle the duties up front with sway bars both front and rear keep the car cornering flat. This car is set up right and fun to drive. Come on down and check it out.
