This is the Camaro Z28. It's not for everybody.

We recommend it for the guy who always z28carbf.jpg - 5831 Bytes 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.

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.

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.
