ABOUT THE SITE:
This site was started to try to help people that enjoy owning and driving Camaros. Having owned Camaros for years (and years) and realizing how difficult it was to find useful information about them I decide to see what I could do about starting a site. I will admit I did luck out when the .us sites became available so here it is.
There are certain Camaros I’m much more familiar with than others but as you’ll read below there’s not a lot I haven’t had some dealings with. No one is a true Camaro expert meaning they know everything about every Camaro generation but I promise to do my best to research the information I put on the site and also admit when I’m just not sure of the answer. Keep in mind this site covers all Camaro years which is a lot of information and I’ll be the first to tell you I can and probably will make a mistake here and there. Hopefully the people that visit this site are the ones that really care about Camaros and also care about the other people that drive them. To those that just want to belittle and degrade someones hard work … please go drive something else because it’s apparent you care nothing about Camaros or the people that drive them!
Me and my wife currently own the following Camaros: 1967, 1971, 1986 IROC, 1989 IROC and a 1994 Z28 Convertible. If you are keeping track then yes that’s at least one of every Camaro generation except for the Fifth Gen. of course. I have owned my 1967 Camaro since 1987. I’ve done everything to it from change the cam and heads to replace the heater core to change out the transmission and all more than once in the 20 plus years I’ve owned it. It has a 327 that has given me lots of great times over the years. My wife has a 1971 Camaro that we’ve had since 2001. It has a 327 in it as well. Neither my ’67 or my wife’s ’71 have the original engine or transmission in them still but that’s just fine with us though. My 1989 IROC-Z has a 5.7 and yes it is original and I have owned it since 1990. I have been through lots of interesting problems with it that I’ve had to fix like the ignition switch needing to be replaced because a wire broke in the steering column on the anti-theft system. I’ve also replaced the computer on it because it was not sending enough volts to the sensors so all it’s readings were wrong. Try figuring that out in 1992 when no one knew a lot about the computer system on them much less what to check. That one was a fun one to figure out let me tell you! It’s actually really easy but wasn’t at the time because of the lack of knowledge about them. The ’71 was a complete mess when we got it. We have repainted it indigo metallic blue with just a touch of pearl. Changed the rims to body color Z28 rims. Changed the heads, cam/lifters/push rods, timing chain, intake, radiator and exhaust. Changed the rear end to a 3.42 posi from a ’71 Firebird. And last but not least the interior has been completely redone. The ’94 Z28 Convertible is bone stock. It does have a 6spd manual transmission in it which is one of the reasons I decided to get it. I’ve also owned at one time or another a 1976 Type LT, 1979 Z28 and a 1981 Z28.
