Took some pics of my '89 IROC-Z the other day. I ordered this car new. It's an LB9, (big cam), T5, G92, N10 dual cats, decal delete hardtop with 11k miles.

Sweet. Your driveway looks like a third-gen convention!

P.S. You really don't need that white one anymore. :D

Nice, I've been thinking of picking up a 3rd gen and holding it, they are really undervalued, but they will eventually pick up.

I think that now is a good time to buy a mint 3rd gen. The really nice, low miles ones are beginning to creep up in price.

Post some pics of the 82/83 white one that is getting no love... I always thought those cars looked better... Understated.

The 3rd generation Camaro has a special place in my heart , and this car is impeccable in every way. I often find it interesting how far ahead the 3rd generation Camaros were as far as aerodynamics were concerned.

LB9/T5 G92 is how I'd have done it. As I've matured, I would have also gone DX3. However, my inner youth pangs for the decals... and t-tops.

I am quite fond of L98 / auto cars but of course I am quite a big cube junkie.

Out of the three, the '83 Crossfire is the roughest. It just turned 100,000 miles, it's got door dings, needs new window sweeps, carpet, headliner, etc, - essentially, a driver. But out of all of them, THAT'S the one that makes people stop in the middle of the street and give me a thumbs up. Go figure.

I'll find some more pics of it for you. :D

Made me pick it out of the background! My 83 is very long in the tooth too... (how is your dash pad holding up?) and I still get thumbs up on it as well...

Though mines a hard top. My 442 has T-tops.... I can see why this option went the way of the dodo bird.

Well.....let's see some pics of your '83 :D. Maybe some of the 442, as well. The dash pad is not bad. It has a couple of small cracks in it. As you know, it's virtually impossible to find mint replacement '82/'83 dash pads.

I used to have an 87 IROC Players challenger car (A7U?) 3.45 5 speed 215HP, no power options, no tilt, no rear defrost. Very fun car. Yours looks great!
