Camaros of this generation were common and cliché for a long, long time. But after 30 years, they’ve finally become uncommon. It was a pleasant surprise to find this one parked at an Indianapolis Dairy Queen. It’s a perfect car to take on an ice cream run on a warm summer day.
I think this Camaro is from about 1990, given the bowtie in the front license plate area. In earlier years, CAMARO was spelled out across that insert. That spoiler doesn’t strike me as original. I thought all Z28s used a lip spoiler that was bolted onto the trunk lid and fenders along the tail lights’ top line. I suppose it’s not impossible to remove it and install one like this with a lot more loft.
Ditch that spoiler and replace those blackout wheels – the original five-spoke alloys were quite attractive – and this old Camaro would be perfect. For me, anyway. I’m sure that the person who owns this one likes it just as it is!
We’ve spotted a few other Camaros of this generation: a Berlinetta, an RS in fine patina, and an in-motion IROC-Z convertible. Paul Niedermeyer also named this generation Camaro a GM Deadly Sin; read about it here.
