1983 Camaro Z28 black gold project

Sure enough.... another project.

A pretty pristine 1983 z28. It's all original...well it was. Won't be for long.

The to do list

Fix brakes
Fix crappy running engine
Fix oil leaks
Some minor cosmetic issues

Might as well lower it and get some decent shocks. The stockers are junk. Also this car has progressive springs front and rear. Unlike the z28 and ws6 / iric springs I have as spares. It also has the dual muffler setup. A fiberglass hood and so on.

Do you get your hands on all thirdgens in the Netherlands? Looks great with the BBS you put on it in the wheels thread.

Re: 1983 Camaro Z28 black gold project

Away with stock. Konis and vogtlands. Some umi stuff... all easy mods and results are excellent. I did cut the vogtlands because prev installs left the front too high up.




















It begs for bigger brakes and an ls swap now.

Re: 1983 Camaro Z28 black gold project

Damn, those wheels look great on there. I would assume you're going to convert the rear to disc brakes?

Re: 1983 Camaro Z28 black gold project

Black and gold is one of my favorite combos, sweet car!
Wonder how that car would look with some gold 17 inch honeycomb wheels?

Re: 1983 Camaro Z28 black gold project

Honeycomb = Trans Am

Rear axle will be disc brake yes. First it's going to get registered here, then the tinkering will start. No sense in getting into a heap of trouble with the DMV here over swapped engine, transmission, brakes and who knows what. Once registered it's pretty much open season as long as iong as it meets safety standards.

Brakes will be CTS-V/ZL1 on the front and yet to be determined on the rear.
