My new 1992 Z/28 convertible with 13,700 miles

So I finally pulled the trigger on this 1992 Z/28 vert that I have been looking at for over a year now.
Just got it home in my garage today, very happy with the car - 13,700 miles and all original
Got all the original paper work with the car including original invoice, sales order, etc - The car
was bought new at Pope Chevrolet in Roswell, GA by a woman that only drove it on sunny Sunday's
I dont think the top has ever been down.....should be a fun car, you don't see many of them,
especially Dark Red 92 verts.....here are a few pics and I will post some better ones this weekend.....

I know that the blank throttlebody plate is "special" in that it's 92 only... But I'd have to swap a TPI plate onto it.

Re: My new 1992 Z/28 convertible with 13,700 miles

It's not a very well kept secret, that I have a real soft spot for the metallic colored cars. Doesn't matter if it's the metallic red, blue, gunmetal gray, teal, or dark metallic green. I like it.

So F41 suspension?

Re: My new 1992 Z/28 convertible with 13,700 miles

I'm sure someone will jump in if I'm wrong, but I want to say FE2/G92 weren't offered on the Z28 (edit: convertible) in 91/92, so they lack the 245 tires, 145mph speedo, and so on. But it really doesn't matter much. Even with the skinny tires and slightly smaller front sway bar, my RS handles pretty darn nice. A convertible thirdgen is a comfortable cruiser. One of the most comfortable, enjoyable driving thirdgens. I paid way too much for my RS, but it was an overwhelming indulgence I just couldn't resist.

I think you are correct Drew, my old 92 Z/28 hardtop had G92 but I have never seen a 91 or 92 vert with G92, I need to look at my 1992 factory Camaro literature to see if there is any notes about that

Not sure. My wife ordered a new Convertible Camaro SS RS w a bunch more options. Perhaps not typical, but not the only one either.

I think this car as the best option...you can put the top down... no better option than that!
Congrats on the purchase Biz it looks to be a really sweat deal of a car. I am a fan of the 91's and 92's and this is a beautiful example.

Very nice car! I have been wanting to buy a 'vert for years, just haven't had the stars align. Did the red formula fall through?
