Hi from Leicester, England

Hi dudes.

Im looking to buy an imported Z28 Camaro in the UK around 1993-1996 model.
Im concerned about lack of spares etc in the Uk and was wondering if there are any reliability issues and the main things to look out for on a test drive.
I LOVE American muscle cars and the beautiful noise they make they are rare on UK roads.

Cheers in advance guys

Jay

Re: Hi from Leicester, England

Welcome!

Buying a later model Camaro is really not all that different from buying any other used car (other then it's a Camaro). Look the normal wear signs. Is the steering tight, does the make odd sounds, squeaks, etc.? Has the ride, too soft, bounce? Is the car clean or does look abused?

Also, something to keep in mind, the more "modified" it is, chances are it may have been drive hard.
Just few things to keep in mind.

Re: Hi from Leicester, England

Welcome.
Good luck in your search for the Z-28.
I owned a 97 Z28-SS. The only issues I can remember was an oil leak out the back of the intake manifold and that there was a recall on the A.I.R. pump. Mine also needed an EGR valve before 20,000 miles.

Hi there Jay! Welcome from the colony to the west. I know there are a few Cams your way, but still rare on the roads. By the way, what's a litre of gas... make that petrol in your neck of the woods?
