88 Z28 500+hp Super Clean Car! Check it out!

I purchased this car from a local guy in 2002. The car had been stolen from him and more or less stripped. I have since completely rebuilt this vehicle. The car has a new engine, transmission, rear end, paint, wheels, etc.

The car has gone 11.0 seconds in the quarter mile at 124 mph with a 100hp shot of nitrous. We tried to make a pass with a 250hp unit but the tires spun like the pavement was wet! I never had another chance to re-tune and make any more passes with the 250hp unit, but with proper traction this car will make low 10 second passes with ease. The car also runs mid 11 second quarter mile times on the motor alone… Plenty fast for the street.

The car is a blast to drive on the street! You can pretty much mop the floor with anyone you’ll run into. Quite a few Vettes, Mustangs, Exotics and tons of imports have regretted revving their engines at this car. Remember that this isn't’t a Cadillac though. Please don’t expect a perfectly smooth and quiet ride from this beast. This car is all about muscle. It’s loud, fast, and turns heads wherever you go!

This car has only been entered into one car show since it was built. This was the 2005 Las Vegas F-Body Invasion. The car won FISRT PLACE for best 3rd Generation Camaro/Firebird.

This car has no heater. If you'll notice in the pics that the passenger's firewall no longer contains the heater box. It was removed and discarded. This car wasn't built for long trips through the snow.

I made a couple of video clips so that you can hear/see the car crank and run. Click Here or Here to hear it. The clips don't even come close to doing the sound of this car any justice. The car is very loud and literally shakes you from its vibration.

Vehicle Condition

The interior is in very good shape for a car of it's age. It is mostly all original except for the steering wheel and seats. There are no large stains or worn spots. It's hard to find a third generation Camaro with interior this nice.

The paint looks VERY good. There are a few small spots here and there but the paint is in very good overall condition. The paint is very smooth and has a very high shine to it. I spent over $3,000 on the paint alone. The original Iroc body styling was ditched and all of the ground effects, bumper cover, and wing were swapped out for the 1991-1992 style. The hood is a Glasstek 4" bolt on cowl hood. The glass has no cracks. All of the exterior rubber has been replaced as well. The car has clear front corner lights and rear blackouts.

The car starts and runs very well. It drives great. There are no weird knocks pings or other noises (Although the fuel pump is pretty loud :P). The car cranks with ~60psi of oil pressure and once warmed up idles at ~20lbs. The car runs ~170 degrees even here in Las Vegas. I use Rotella T 30w oil in the engine.

The engine produces ~550hp and ~565ft lb of torque! The nitrous system is also adjustable from 100-250hp. This car is capable of 800hp or more!

Known Issues:

The transmission pan gasket leaks. I already have a new replacement pan but just never had the time to replace it.
The speedometer does not work. I was told that there was no gear in the rear of the transmission to drive it. I never worried with it.
There is no headliner in the car.
The dash pad has a few cracks in it.
The paint on the front lower spoiler has some cracks in it from scraping on my trailer ramp.
The t-tops are made of lexan (not glass). Lexan t-tops are known for looking bad after a while and these are no exception to the rule.
I have a LOT more high resolution photos of the car. Please email me if you would like pics of anything in particular.

I have tried my very best to accurately describe this vehicle, but I am only human. If you have any reservations or questions about anything regarding this vehicle just ask. I will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
