1988 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z 28 Targa (Meri)
Last updated May 31, 2012
1988 Camaro IROC-Z gone through a transformation (no pun intended).
Following the looks of the new Camaro, with the new bodykit, it's difficult to even tell this car's originally from the 80's. With few added extras, it's unique.
And if someones wondering what name "Meri" means, it means "the ocean". Thought it suits him well because of his aqua blue colour.
About the begin of the process; exterior-wise the car wasnt in a perfect shape to begin with so it was a good target for the modifications we had in mind (lol, and we didnt feel too bad about ripping it apart).
To mention few noticeable things, the original paint was starting to peel off and the fog lights were missing. The car was also equipped with the standard hood and while we were at it we decided to go with the z28 style hood. We also got rid of the shorty rear wing so the cars rear end would have the smooth straight look to it. Of course we could've gone with the original look and just restore the car but the car's not that rare and we wanted to make him a bit different than a bone stock 1988 Camaro.
Anyways, the guy we bought the car from was ready to sell it for $6000 and for a rust-free car that has *only* 52816 miles on it, it was a good deal.
But thanks to Meri for being the special little car that brought our visions alive.
