About “carmine”

I never intended to buy this car...but most of you know how that goes!!!
already owning 4 cars (had not sold my cavalier yet and the z28 had not burnt up yet).
i just wanted to...look at it. a gentleman nearby had posted this car up for sale and it was nearby and being the camaro fan i am i had to see it.
as it turns out this car just stunned me... the paint outside was a bit faded but the body was in great shape and the interior was like it just rolled out of the factory, and the fact it had less then 80k miles..i had to have it.
and i got lucky...the owner had just came back from norwood ohio and using his 70 chevelle he had competed on pinks all out.
while he was there he had saw and fell in love with a harley....but his wife had told him no because he already had 2 toys.
so he agreed to sell the camaro.....wanting that harley bad he put the car up for a price that would sell quick.
and sell quick it did...though it mainly sits covered and protected on a warm dry day i take it out and it always draws crowds,
though its a berlinetta it has the option engine( 350 sbc) out of the z28 and at some point someone but the spoiler from the z28 on the back...yet the interior has the refinement and luxurys of the berlinettas. power everything,excellent heat/ac
its great having the best of both worlds sometimes lol

About “Blue Blurr”

Have owned this sweet ride since May 2009. Picked her up in Colorado for $3000 and have not been disappointed. There are some minor problems here and there but nothing real bothersome. Wiring has been hacked to crap so will most likely need to purchase a Painless Wiring kit when the time comes. The cars original paint color is Bright Blue Metallic which I intend to restore it to since whoever owned it before me decided to cut corners with the current paint job and now looks bad. Virtually zero rust found on the body. Original sheet metal and parts minus the headlamp bezels which should be black for the Z28. Will keep this site updated as I make improvements to the car.
