Re: Car of the Month Bait Thread











My car is a 1982 Z28

All original other than tires and alternator (I have the originals) I did install a new stripe kit, otherwise the car is the way it left the factory

21,130 miles

LG4 305, 3 speed automatic

I bought the car as a tribute to my older brother who was killed in a twin car to this in 1989 when I was 13 years old. I have so many memories of riding in that car with him. It was his pride and joy, and I searched for 20+ years to find a car like his. I would love to be nominated, and my brother would be super thrilled, too!

Also, my build date is the 2nd week of September, 1982....so probably one of the last 82's. Even has the black engine like the 83 model year

Thanks man! Yeah, the steering wheel is literally 100% perfect. I catch myself driving with my hand at the top of the wheel every now and then, and as soon as I realize what I'm doing I move my hand to the 9 o'clock position lol. I'm a little paranoid with it

Re: Car of the Month Bait Thread

What's the actual name of that color interior? I LOVE it by the way. Wouldn't go well with my bright red of course, but it's PERFECT for a neutral color like white, black, silver. Man that's sharp.

Re: Car of the Month Bait Thread

I agree. It is a very nice color for an 80’s car. Much better looking than the bright red.

According to the 82 brochure, they just simply call it maroon
