This is the Camaro Z28. It's not for everybody.
We recommend it for the guy who always wanted a performance car he could drive to work.
Let's start with the engine. It's a special 360-horse Turbo-Fire 350 V8. And there's a lot that's special about it. Like the cam. The mechanical lifters. The big 4-barrel carb. Everything spells performance.
But there's more to it than that.
You also get extruded aluminum pistons. Extra-large intake and exhaust valves. And a thermo-modulated fan that cuts in when the engine needs more cool.
Same thing with the transmission. Order 4-speed with a Hurst linkage. Gives you short crisp throws. If you want to go the automatic route, you can order the Turbo Hydra-matic. It's a three-range setup that shifts itself or lets you take over.
The suspension? Ditto. There are higher rate springs with matching shocks at all four wheels. A stabilizer bar in the rear as well as the front. Combine all that with the Z28's quick-ratio steering and you'll move through corners flat and precise.
Then, there are other performance telltales. Special wheels with F60 x 15 white-lettered tires. Heavy-duty radiator. Special Z28 striping. And a rear-deck air spoiler.
Now, that's what we call a healthy car.
One more thing. When you come to see the "Z", make sure you've got your driving gloves.
If that isn't enough to get your adrenalin flowing, there's a Corvette catalog not too far away.
