1992 Camaro Z-28 RPO Z28 in Quasar Blue Met
An original 5.7 ltr. Z28 loaded with all the goodies except for t-tops, which I do not like, as it weakens the f-body. Car was originally ordered in Dark Teal met., but I decided it would look better in my all time favorite Quasar Blue Met.
No expense was spared during the color change. Every panel, molding, glass, etc. was carefully removed. All the factory imperfections on the outer skin were corrected. Car was painted in a state of the art million dollar paint facility. Paint was also baked cured, which is a must for any quality paint change over. The Z-28 was ordered with all the performance options. Added to the numbers matching factory engine block, were a set of mildly massaged aluminum heads, Custom ported Holley Stealth ram, and General Motors performance hyd. roller camshaft. Engine was completely disassembled, checked (blue printed) and reassembled.
My goal was to build a Z-28 the way it should have left the factory in 1992. 1LE front brakes were added, as well as special braces in key areas. Lots of professional attention to detail fabrication, made the new induction system look like it left the factory looking that way. The all 304 mandrel bent stainless true dual exhaust system was custom fabricated on the car. All tig welded and polished. As seen on some of the picture below, there is absolutely no rust anywhere on the car. The under chassis is clean enough to eat off from.
Although this car had more miles than I usually get for my collection, the car was examined and found to be in much better shape than many extremely low mileage cars that I had looked at. This was the perfect car for the intended performance upgrades, I had planned for the car. The car is as solid as they come, and then some. The seats were removed and treated to a conservative two tone leather combination, with custom embroidered blue stitched Z-28 on the head rests. The factory leather steering wheel was redone in two tone black / gray leather in order to update and enhance the complete look.
After many years of building muscle cars, I decided that all of that experience would serve to build this Z-28 for my own personal use.
