You'd think that after all these years, we'd have sold more of these fourth-generation Camaros, seeing as how popular these were when they were new. Plenty of modified ones, but a stock one like this 1994 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28? Not many at all. With incredibly low mileage, a rare color combination, and a screaming bargain of a price, this is a heck of a lot of go-fast for not a lot of cash.
By 1994, the Camaro was unquestionably the king of the pony cars. The Mustang was a gelding with a new-tech motor that hadn't found its footing and Chrysler was busy building Vipers. No, if you wanted to go fast on a budget in 1994, this was how you did it. It remains true today, because this Patriot Red Z/28 still commands respect and looks awesome going down the road. Despite being 25 years old, the paint still shines up nicely. Sure, there's some evidence of use and age, but this was clearly a car owned by someone who cared. The plastic bodywork obviously doesn't show rust or dents, although the quarters are still steel and they're in great shape. The pointed nose doesn't display any real bumps or bruises, although there is some missing clear coat in a few spots, and all the original emblems are still in place, just in case you needed to be reminded what this was. The shark-like shape has aged well and we love the black halo bar over the roof that gives the whole greenhouse the appearance of a jet cockpit, and aftermarket Euro-style taillights were added for a mildly trick look. This is still a really cool car.
Inside, the two-tone gray cloth upholstery remains stylish and a great choice for a car that'll go around corners. There's very little wear throughout, which isn't surprising when you consider the low miles, and the durable fabric really has held up well. The low-slung driving position emphasizes the car's projectile-like looks but GM was careful to put the important stuff right where you needed it: a fat steering wheel, big, round gauges, and a shifter for the 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission close at hand. Z/28s only came one way: loaded. As a result, it's equipped with cold A/C, power windows, power driver seat, locks, and mirrors, a tilt steering column, rear defroster and cruise control. The original AM/FM/CD player is still in the dash, as are the OEM floor mats, which are further testaments to the care this 1-owner beauty has always received.
The 350 cubic inch LT1 V8 really needs no introduction. It was supposedly de-tuned for use in the Camaro, but there are a lot of skeptics who say that it runs like a 300 horsepower car should. Regardless of the number, this one only has 20,893 miles on the clock, so it's still fresh and ready to rock for years to come. Thanks to the wonders of fuel injection, it starts quickly and idles easily, and it pulls hard at almost any speed. Torque is available all over the tach, and that's really the Camaro's strong suit: smoking some tires. Of course, the cackle of the exhaust is part of the fun, and with a torque arm suspension, the Camaro is an agile handler, too. The 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission is what most of these got, and the shifts are smooth and this car just loafs along at highway speeds. It's shockingly clean underneath and the 16-inch factory alloys are almost totally unmarked.
You can still get a lot of V8 fun for not a lot of cash, and this one is ready to be a daily driver with all the creature comforts and an automatic transmission. Why not have some fun while you commute? Call today!
