No one is safe!

While GM initially created the Chevrolet Camaro to compete with the Ford Mustang, it didn't take long for the prancing pony car of the GM lineup to become an entirely different monster of its own. There was a Camaro for everybody back then, no matter if you were a high school kid buying his first car or a speed demon or race car driver hell-bent on hard-hitting acceleration and excellent handling.

Overall the Camaro was touted as one of America's most versatile sports cars. The Z/28 and SS, in particular, were extraordinarily popular for their engine options and sportier style. Nowadays, these old legends have mainly become obsolete in their stock form. However, a special few within the automotive community take it upon themselves to revitalize these ancient beasts to compete with the best of today's high-performance pony and muscle cars. This car is a perfect example of that passionate journey from obsolescence to powerful and fast-paced competition.

1988 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z Is Third Generation F-Body Glory

  1988 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z Is Third Generation F-Body Glory To those in the know, this is far more than just a car.After the 1980 season, the International Race of Champions or IROC series took a break from competition until 1984. Collaborating with Chevrolet, the series commemorated its return using the redesigned Camaro Z/28, which was called the IROC-Z. Hailed by many as a return to form for Chevrolet muscle cars, the IROC-Z is being celebrated today. That means values on clean examples like this one are on the rise, so if you’re looking for an affordable vehicle that could appreciate significantly over the coming years, you might want to take a close look at this third-gen Camaro.

Under the hood of this monster is a 6.0-liter Chevy LS3 V8, which, accompanied by a centrifugal supercharger, produces power in abundance. All of that incredible power barrels straight through a 4L80E automatic transmission, proven to be one of the best transmissions in the GM engineering catalog. The exhaust is entirely custom-built to come out of the sides, which gives the car an authentic "old-school" drag car look; it also sounds excellent. Wilwood brakes accompany all four corners as you need a lot of stopping power for a car like this.

The exterior color is a beautiful custom green described by Sean from AutotopiaLA as "Avocado." He also said he would like to "dip a chip in it," whatever that means, which, as confusing of a statement as it is, pretty perfectly sums up the general vibe of this car. It drives just about as fast as you'd expect with hard redline acceleration and good low-end power as well as high to give it an all-around fantastic driving experience.
